Hey guys, I was just looking at the other mining companies on GLBSE.

DMC, at 3.5gh, is bigger than 007 (0.80gh), ABM (0.83gh), JAH (2.5gh), FPGA.CONTRACT (2.8gh), and JLP-BMD (3.36gh), and we're closing in on YABMC (5gh) and TYGRR.BOND-A (5gh).

Fuck yeah.

I'm currently offering a trade for 2 FPGA.CONTRACT for 1 DMC

I've updated the bond swap table script. It now reacts in real time over bid/ask to adjust what I'm offering.

Update: Everyone effected by the problem, try the new build.

The new build works well, thanks! What was the issue?

Side note: I can now use a worksize of either 128 or 256 on OS X 10.7.4 and notice a small increase in hashrate over -w 64. May be worth mentioning in the OP instructions. I assume it's because of (one of?) the OpenCL updates Apple has pushed out.

FINALLY THEY FIXED IT! HOLY CRAP APPLE, IT ONLY TOOK TWO YEARS!

Also, the issue on AMD was AMD interprets the specification differently than I do. It costs basically nothing to fix it, and on GCN its measurably nothing.

Well, I spoke too soon. After letting a few boxes run over the weekend with the latest version, the clients report that they are connecting to the pool and shares are accepted, however the hashrate as reported by the pool is much lower with this latest version than the one in March.

The new client was showing an average 34 mhash/s per machine all weekend (looking at Eligius' 3 hr avg & 12 hr avg) vs. 67 mhash/s on the March client (looking at Eligius' 3 hours avg today).

I can confirm that just upgrading to 10.7.4 cause an approximate drop of 8-10 mhash/s.  Sad

Goddamnit Apple. Why do you hate OpenCL so much.

I use a paperclip to short green to ground and a piece of tape to keep the paperclip from falling out. Simple solution that has worked for years running multiple PSUs per quad-SLI/CF rig.

You only need to short it to start it up, you dont need to leave it in there while its running.

If you remove the ground from the PWR_ON pin, I'm pretty sure it turns off the PSU. I don't have one to test on right now, but are you sure on that?

I'm pretty sure. I've started PSUs up to see if they're not fried due to their owner's stupidity (hate tech support, hate hate hate) and they stayed on until I cycled the power.

I've added 007 to the swap list.
992  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BitForce SC - full custom ASIC on: May 28, 2012, 12:02:38 PM
Well if it's much less, then break even point is literally 2~3~4 months. Unless these units drastically increase the difficulty, thus increasing break even time.
A Single will then be obsolete and you will have no choice but to trade it in. Rig box will become basic entry point product.

The trade in now looks very generous, even too generous  Smiley

My point is that at those prices or even at a much lower price (say $100K) 99% of the buyers of a single will not be able to trade it in, as they won't have the funds or the commitment to put down that kind of extra money. I actually don't see the trade in as a much added value, other than people can perhaps pool their singles, buy 1 ASIC and share the hashing power....

It will be nice for Gigavps, he can probably exchange all his singles, his mini-rigs before they ship, get an ASIC and some money back  Wink

All I can say at this point is that our units will have different models and will be affordable for general public. 100K$ is not affordable
for general public, and is not a good price reference.

I'm assuming you're going to be producing Singles 2.0 and trading those for Single 1.0s.

One cool announcement and the mud comes flinging.  I do think it is a bit dangerous to announce the tech so long before it will be ready, but they did pull it off before.  I look forward to hearing more.

Soft launches to make you HARD <grins>

Interesting to see how much of a 'game changer' this is, or if it will just mean an order of magnitude less of consumption for a similarly priced and hashing output.

kind regards

Not much information can be disclosed publicly at this point, although we will do so in the near future.
It reminds me of 1970 where computers could only be shipped by trains and aircrafts. How do they compare
to a single iPad today in terms of processing power, wattage and price? That's where BitForce SC lives...


Regards,
BF Labs Inc.

BTW, I hope your new gear is geared to only start fans when needed for small scale installations. I'd like to see more silent gear.

A great care was taken and the units are planned to be very silent.
It is another important feature of very low power consumption.


Regards,
BF Labs Inc.

I, on the other hand, hope that the fan speeds are controllable without hacking, as I'd like to rev up the fans to keep everything cooler thus increasing the lifespan of the products.

Well, if its that low power, a low RPM 12v 120mm fan undervolted to 5v probably could keep chip temps in the 40Cs and be silent enough that people could sleep around it.

996  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BitFury 110GH/s per rack? on: May 28, 2012, 06:37:15 AM
I don't think these announcements in close succession are a coincidence.

Seeing that EldenTyrell is planning to sell his 260 MH/s bitstream starting June 1st, Bitfury tried to preempt these sales by disclosing their own 300 MH/s bitstream, which has a better price/performance ratio than BFL's Single, at about half the power draw. Of course, BFL doesn't want Single sales to drop off by 95%, hence they pre-announce their ASIC, and thus ensure that sales of Lancelot, Bitfury and Eldentyrell's bitstream will be zero or close to zero. But such a pre-announcement of a better product can have a devastating side effect on your OWN product sales as well, which has bankrupted more than a few companies. For the baby boomers among us, let me just mention Osborne. Enter the buy-back guarantee. The buy-back guarantee ensures that BFL's sales will be unaffected by the pre-announcement - nobody will cancel existing orders and nobody will shy away from new orders.

Brilliantly played, BFL.

Yeah except DMC could very well be the largest buyer of miner hardware, and if I don't like what BFL now is doing, I won't buy their hardware in the future no matter how cheap it is, and would do business with Bitfury and Eldentyrell instead (who, really, should be combining forces right about now).
997  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BitFury 110GH/s per rack? on: May 28, 2012, 05:53:52 AM
Hey, at least I get to share with zhoutong the dubious honor of having had my name verbified by the forum users.  I guess that's something! Wink

So eldentyrell eldentyrell'ed existing Spartan 6 bitstreams, then bitfury eldentyrell'ed eldentyrell, and now BFL is trying to eldentyrell bitfury.

I simply don't have enough popcorn for this.
998  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BitForce SC - full custom ASIC on: May 28, 2012, 05:51:33 AM
Okay guys, angry neighborhood bastard mod here.

Tone down the trolling. Neither BitFury nor BFL have launched their respective competing products, and I think SC might give BitFury's extra optimized Spartan 6 rigs a run for their money. Also, as the founder of the Diablo Mining Company, I am looking at both projects in interest. We need competition for mining hardware, and you two right now are each others competition. Whoever makes it past 2mh/$ first doesn't win (but doesn't lose either).

ok.
 what i want, is a switch without soldering ( maybe a pre-soldered one with 2 wires)  but i dont know even if it exists. i have splices, ferrules and heatshrink covers (dont like soldering)any idea? what can i do?



To start an ATX power supply are you do is short the green wire to ground. There are readily available solutions to do that.

2. Thanks to DiabloD3 for SATA cables idea, so when decided over JTAG vs non-JTAG I decided to put them all!
    SATA1 is input SATA2 is output to next board of following signals:

    SPI interface to talk with bitstream and another SPI to program bitstream plus generic RESET.

    And another SATA interface, again SATA3 input, SATA4 output:


If you're going to use multiple different connections all using SATA connectors, remember that you can buy SATA cables in different colors so people don't accidentally plug the wrong ones in when doing maintenance.
