3  Bitcoin / Hardware / KnCMiner Jupiter Miner First Impressions on: October 07, 2013, 08:34:23 AM
Originally I had posted this info on KnCMiner form while bitcointalk was down. Feel free to post your own details as respects your experience with your hardware.

I wish to start of by congratulating the KnCMiner team on the success of their project.

In the case of the spec of the unit they have indeed underpromise and overdeliver.

Below are my first impressions of the Jupiter unit that I had ordered. I will continue to post my observations and results as to performance comparable with other ASIC hardware available today on the market.

Build Quality

Pro:

The unit itself is extremely light compared to what I have grown accustom to.

The case itself including the contents is well packaged together. The heatsinks on the individual boards are secure and snug to the lid with the help of foam pads.

There's two metal plates on the lid that helps move wind threw the unit out the back.

System runs very quiet with the low rpm fans.

Cons:

The stock fans are in my opinion do not provide adequate CFM.

The air intake is in the same location where the cables connect.


Performance and Power Consumption

The stock firmware that had shipped with my unit v0.90 pushed the chips into the high 600 GH/s Range and pulled 860 watts @120v. However due to hardware errors they average performance was 490 GH/s.

Upgrading to v2 0.92 the power consumption dropped from 860 watts, to 570 watts at 120V power. However due to poor ventilation cg miner reports 530 Gh/s average however due to the hardware errors the performance is the same as before at about 490-500 GH/s.

Software

Pro: If you had provided the correct information on your account before shipping then the unit will come preconfigured and ready to go.
Just plug in to your internet and power and your up at 100%.

Cons: I recommend that all persons open up the unit in order to check for loose fans. Seems a little bump can make the fans detach from the heatsinks. It is fairly simple to attach the fans.

Shipping

I was pleasantly surprised when UPS had shipped my unit on time.

Shipped October 2nd and Arrived October 4th.

Another colleague had issues with his order getting misplaced by UPS. However in the end UPS did deliver the unit on time.


Overall impressions

The case design a 8/10
This is due to the connection points and the inadequate stock ventilation for the speed setting of the ASIC processors.

The web interface a 5/10.
The web interface needs to include access to the cgminer log and perhaps poll the details from cgminer onto a page that the average user can use.

The software pre configuration 10/10.
As long as you had provided the needed information to connect to your pool of choice then the system should come ready to mine.

Here is a screenshot of the Jupiter 1 performance. This also includes other units operating in the same environment at the same electrical service.

Ambient room temp is 62.6Ft or 17C



Note:

I would just like to add that KnCMiner team has provided an excellent product overall that will help those entering the mining segment with a solid option.

Later on I will be posting screenshots of performance improvements that I will be conducting over the course of the next few days.

4  Bitcoin / Mining / Will those who have Gen 1 Avalon purchase Gen 2 Avalon Chips/Hardware ? on: September 09, 2013, 08:31:37 PM
Just wanted to put the question that most are wondering.

Can Avalon make a comeback?

Vote and post reasons why Smiley

Quote
Avalon Generation Two chips completely backward compatible in every way with 110nm generation one chips, which can be expect to go on sale Late October 2013 for immediate shipping. Avalon will no longer participate in any kind of pre-ordering.

Developers and Hobbyists should keep an close eye on our github account as we will be releasing the 55nm chip specification and reference design soon!

I posted this updated chart on another thread however wanted to share it here in case you missed it.

Some of us were debating at this stage buying BTC short of mining at a loss can be a viable option rather then committing to the risky business involved with going all out with ASIC hardware.

The following chart shows the return on specific hardware from given manufacturers at present costs at a network difficulty increase of 35% every 10 days.

Buying BTC at $100 is a viable option with out the issues involved with mining.

Here is the updated numbers on network difficulty increase of 35% every 10 days from this point on.

Best case perhaps?

7  Bitcoin / Hardware / FYI Intel & Altera to Build Next-Generation FPGAs on Intel's 14 nm Tri-Gate Tech on: February 27, 2013, 05:23:37 PM
"Products are targeted at ultra high-performance systems such as military, wireline communications and cloud networking.

Intel has announced that it has reached an agreement with PLD (Programmable logic device) manufacturer Altera to product FPGAs (Field-programmable gate array) on Intel's 14 nm tri-gate transistor technology. According to the announcement, these next generation products will enable breakthrough levels of performance and power efficiencies not otherwise possible and further the company's ability to deliver on the promise of silicon convergence by delivering a more flexible and economical alternative to traditional ASICs and ASSP."

10  Economy / Speculation / Be ready for the new norm. on: January 04, 2012, 08:46:41 PM
There seems to be a push to the up. Could be because of many pro factors.

However the real question should be, how many of us "early" adopters will ride out the wave to the new plateau before hedging their "bets"?

What are your thoughts on this?
