Can not take pictures because it is invisible ASIC - Stealth ASIC  - Miracle of Chinese electronics. Faster than the speed of light Wink
We have to trust their words because words are more important than the photos, Similarly to faith in god Wink (I am atheist)

I don't like the font.

Can you redo the batch with a nicer font?

The color of the PCB is all wrong too.

Can you redo it in hot pink?  Thanks.

My name and order quantity were edited to protect the innocent. Wink

(Order number is real though)

Wow, thats a quite a big number of units.  Grin I hope this gamble pays off well for you.

Some appropriate music for your exploitation of the bitcoin network, ehm, mining

Wow at today's prices and difficulty, you'd need 12 days to pay off everything (minus power).  Looks like we got a new bitcoin baron here.  I guess those people showing off their FPGA minirigs just got dethroned (ie. gigavps).

The power usage is pretty big, 400w * 90 = 36k watts, on an industrial hookup at 0.008 dollars/w/h, that's $288 dollars a day or $3,456 in 12 days.  Still, that'll be pretty small compared  to the revenue they generate.  We may see massive dumping into the BTC buy market in the next few weeks with these new ASICs.

We've anticipated this behavoir, so we decided to wait a little and address the following.

Quote
Trolls: omg post fucking photos!

Avalon posts photo.

Trolls: how we know these things even work! post fucking videos.

Avalon posts video.

Trolls: wtf that shit is staged.

Avalon says: wait till third party review.

and back where I originally started.

Interesting opinion you have of your potential customer base, that kind or arrogance will lose you customers.

PS the video link doesn't work  Grin

You must be new here.  This subforum has 3 types of people.

1) Trolls [vast majority]
2) Brown nosers humping the developers every comment
3) People who are indifferent and generally just looking for a good laugh reading the interactions between #1 and #2.


Their assumption was absolutely accurate.  But the post was directed at Group 1, which is not made up of customers (potential or current).

When will final specs be published? I'm most interested in this...

I wonder how much testing has gone into this.  Surely quite a bit.  But wouldn't it be a great upset if Avalon was first to ship and all of the units failed after a week or two?

They are in business, therefore the Trolls are worthless to them and should be ignored.

I'm a potential customer looking to invest somewhere once i'm convinced someone can deliver a working product.

I'm still yet to be convinced.

We only know for sure after a week or two  Grin

Based on their FPGA product they have good quality.

It seems a simple pcb without many tracks no? There you can see that most of the pads of the chip are connected to ground layer, so the data tracks are few as stated in the original specifications. How many integrates of each pcb?

Oh you guys, I think everyone is at a boiling point because of the delays made by our competitors.

We shipped, website will be updated shortly.

First unit goes to Jeff Garzik in honor for the work he has done for the bitcoin codebase being the only developer who ordered from us.

we also arranged to ship a unit to the Bitcoin Foundation, whom is going to do a demo.

The avalon team on the other hand is going to make sure the whole shipping process go smoothly. like handling DHL/EMS problem, and other custom issues.

cheers.

if it is true --> congrats!



congrats!
