Found this from a DJB paper:

Parallel Collision Search with Cryptanalytic Applications

Paul C. van Oorschot and Michael J. Wiener


1996 September 23


The practical significance of the technique is illustrated by giving the
design for three $10 million custom machines which could be built with
current technology: one finds elliptic curve logarithms in GF(2^155)
thereby defeating a proposed elliptic curve cryptosystem in expected
time 32 days, the second finds MD5 collisions in expected time 21


I know the dollar is not what it used to be, but same applies to
hardware IMHO

Metadata of the PDF is in the future, suggests windows.

This is paywalled:
Journal of Cryptology

January 1999, Volume 12, Issue 1, pp 1-28
