FWIW, many FPGA bitcoin miners made out reasonably well relative to GPU miners even though the FPGAs were higher $/MH/s just due to lower power costs and secondary costs (e.g. motherboards/cpu/ram/power supplies) per hashrate.  Make sure you consider these costs in your comparisons.
491  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Announcement: Bitmain launches AntMiner solution, 0.68 J/GH on chip on: January 21, 2014, 10:58:45 PM
Bitmain need to push something stronger then 180Gh units to the market, very soon or they will be left behind.
Bitmain: Got anything up your sleeves? No need to worry about future 180Gh sales, they won´t sell less just because you tell us your next move,
Who cares about the X GH/s amount. It's irrelevant.

Hashes per Joule? Relevant.
Hashes per BTC? Very relevant.
Hashes per cubic meter? Relevant for some.

Hashes per second per device? Almost totally irrelevant.

I think Bitmain has done well in offering a device smaller than some of the preorder unicorns. There are certainly people who bought only one or two units who wouldn't have bought a 4x performing unit at 4x the price because they didn't want to dive that deep in... doubly so when the prices are not attractive enough that a healthy profit can be completely assured.

I don't know anything about Bitmain's per unit order processing and shipping overheads, but assuming that they aren't enormous I'd imagine that around $1k to $2k in value is probably a purchasing sweet spot in terms of making devices which are accessible to a large number of people without dealing with the trouble of a lot of small purchases.   Keeping the per device price around that much value but driving up the hashes per joule and hashes per sec per $ would probably be a good path forward.

Let me tell: with a knc jupiter you can sleep in the same room, even near the jupiter. No noise...the ants are 3 or 4 times louder.
Hm. I don't think it's that loud, and me and my SO sleep in a room with two of them. Though, — we've also been sleeping in a room with an Avalon, so maybe we've already gone deaf. Smiley

They're _much_ quieter than the original avalon at least.

495  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [185 TH] p2pool: Decentralized, DoS-resistant, Hop-Proof pool on: January 16, 2014, 02:09:54 AM
So.....with my puny 12 Gh/s rig I might as well forget P2Pool right?  Expect share is somewhere around 4 days right now and payout per block is BTC0.00143.  So that's something like BTC0.00143 every 4 days?  Am I reading this right?
I would not put that little hashrate on p2pool.  You'll variance will be wildly extreme.
"Wildly extreme" meaning your current estimated $2/day earnings will end up being $0 on a lot of days (and well above $2 on some other days)? How does that even matter to anyone?
This has also long been my opinion. I absolutely cannot understand what people are thinking, my best guess is that they're honestly confused about expected returns.

What doubly boggles me is that some of the same people who say they cannot tolerate variance turn around and gamble (with negative expectation).
496  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: CoinTerra announces its first ASIC - Hash-Rate greater than 500 GH/s on: January 16, 2014, 01:51:24 AM
Very interesting that they wouldn't just point it to the same place they have been testing the whole time.  I wonder why!    Cheesy
Why do you even assume they are testing (much) on the production network?  Up-thread I was arguing that doing so is a poor choice both for technical (not a great test case, noisy and doesn't test things like big blocks) and professional (competing with your customers is bad mojo) reasons.

It's very strange that no one has been able to product the working stats page from Eligius. This is a strong indication that there are problems and they are unable to leave the unit running.
They didn't leave it running. Though it doesn't look like problems— it looks like they ran it there just for the demo.

My S1 purchased on Saturday arrived today and has been mining a few hours on P2Pool.

The inclusion of the PCI-E connectors was a nice improvement over the early hardware, I was surprised at how much time it saved.

What firmware do you have on those antminers? Your DOA rate is quite high.

It would be only horribly annoying if it didn't randomly flip while following links within the site. As is, someone is going to make some mistake thinking they were paid more than they were due to the flipping changing the units out from under them...
