I planing to buy an FPGA card here www.fpga-mining.tech. In this regard, I have two questions - bcu1525 is the same as the vcu1525? And the software for the VU09p chip will be compatible with the VU13P chip?

bcu is blockchain version, with modifications for better cooling and other stuff, for better mining.
software must be tailored for the exact chips it is to run into.

I mean, you can find and buy a VCU1525 model, but modified BCU made by Xilinx...yeah I'd say its a scam.

I, for one am glad I got in b4 the 25% Trump tariff on semi-conductors...

Though perhaps Xilinx builds in Taiwan?

The tariff is paid when the product moves from China to the US (imported), not when the product is purchased.  





Point being?  You think xilinx uses all made in USA components?  I don't even know if they assemble domestically.

That is my point.  We could be screwed with the Xilinx delay.  If they are assembled in China, and arrive after the tarrifs are in place.... someone will have to pay the 25% tarrifs.  And I can't imagine that would be Xilinx.

They weren't / aren't being assembled in china to my knowledge. Also, to my knowledge, none of the component manufacturers are manufacturing in china.

Right now there is a worldwide shortage of components. From what I've gathered it's because of a global increase in production of various electronics. However, the component manufacturers did not / have not ramp production to meet supply requirements for the increase. It's because last time this happened it was followed by a recession and the component manufacturers were left with a bunch of stock they couldn't sell. This time around they didn't ramp production out of fear the ramp would be followed by a recession.

Well it looks like no-one has been stupid enough to send them BTC yet at that address.

You can purchase units for pre-order now at $3600/unit at http://squirrelsresearch.com/bcu-1525/ -- This is the only site you should purchase from if you want to be sure you're going to receive your order. We already have the order placed with Xilinx and we're in regular contact / meetings with them to get the boards built and shipped.

These were units that a refund was requested for due to delays in acquiring the components needed for production of the boards.

Hey guys,

I wanted to let you know that whitefire has released bitstreams for according to https://fpga.guide/en. Building these bitstreams are pretty intense, but whitefire has been activly working with everyone on the discord channel which is listed on post 1. Hop on and see all that is happening it is pretty great!

Not too worried about the refund. If they are smart, refunds should be processed no later than August 31st. The original invoice did not say, ''All sales are final''. In addition, Squirrels told me this before purchasing, ''Shipping starts in August. You should have it mid-late August depending on transfer times.'' No addendum for possible delays was added or ever mentioned.

If you do a pre-sale on Ebay for example and don't deliver, they kick you off faster than a New York second and do everything in their power to get the buyer's funds back.  

They breached their ''contract'' regardless of Xilinx delays, and shifting blame. That is not our fault. I'm not a lawyer but they could be in very hot water if they delay refunds or don't pay. Imagine the people that possibly bought 10+ units. Whew, I'd be pi**ed off.

I believe these guys meant well, but they didn't do much R&D and rushed into this order. There should have been a back-up plan or contract with Xilinx, stating some sort of discount or repercussion for not delivering on time. Maybe they are getting a discount for the delay, who knows. Not meeting deadlines is unacceptable. Customer service goes a long way and this ''start-up'' is off to a horrible start.

I truly believe that for each day after August 31st, they should pay everyone $20/day per unit because we expected to be mining by then, and $20/day was their low-end advertised rate. Check page 1 of this thread.

Icing on the cake...they are abandoning these boards and going with Bittware in the future. One could deduce that they will focus most if not all of their efforts and bitstreams on the new board, not the 1525. Just speculation.

Wish them well, but as they say, ''first impressions are everything''...

Just my opinion.

I planing to buy an FPGA card here www.fpga-mining.tech. In this regard, I have two questions - bcu1525 is the same as the vcu1525? And the software for the VU09p chip will be compatible with the VU13P chip?

In all likelihood, fpga-mining.tech is a scam - just created on Aug. 8, ad copy is copy-pasta from fpga.land/squirrelsresearch/Mineority. Do your research before sending funds.

Edit: There are ONLY 5000 BCU-1525 being made this year and AllMine (fpga.land), Squirrels Research, and Mineority are the only legitimate outlet at this time. Anyone else offering these is either reselling a pre-order, or scamming.
I have first seen this website when I found VCU1525 on ebay auction, starting bid 8K. It was in the description.

You can purchase units for pre-order now at $3600/unit at http://squirrelsresearch.com/bcu-1525/ -- This is the only site you should purchase from if you want to be sure you're going to receive your order.

I have the #0000019 invoice

I honestly think that whatever is happening right now, that your team are doing the very best to handle all what is happening around the FPGA world.

From a little outside of the box point, I noticed that Bitmain are slowly making their way into Xiling team ( https://www.xilinx.com/video/corporate/bitmain-technologies-bitcoin-mining.html ) and I feel like that I understand their point of view that they are really losing profit and that they will be will go bankrupt in the next week if they cant screw the next wave of mining profitability. ( lol, you understand my sarcasm )

I'm really glad to follow the squirrel team, they do everything they can to handle the next crypto hype.

Let's do it Smiley

In all likelihood, fpga-mining.tech is a scam - just created on Aug. 8, ad copy is copy-pasta from fpga.land/squirrelsresearch/Mineority. Do your research before sending funds.

Edit: There are ONLY 5000 BCU-1525 being made this year and AllMine (fpga.land), Squirrels Research, and Mineority are the only legitimate outlet at this time. Anyone else offering these is either reselling a pre-order, or scamming.
I have first seen this website when I found VCU1525 on ebay auction, starting bid 8K. It was in the description.

You can purchase units for pre-order now at $3600/unit at http://squirrelsresearch.com/bcu-1525/ -- This is the only site you should purchase from if you want to be sure you're going to receive your order. We already have the order placed with Xilinx and we're in regular contact / meetings with them to get the boards built and shipped.

These were units that a refund was requested for due to delays in acquiring the components needed for production of the boards.

I have the #0000019 invoice

I honestly think that whatever is happening right now, that your team are doing the very best to handle all what is happening around the FPGA world.

From a little outside of the box point, I noticed that Bitmain are slowly making their way into Xiling team ( https://www.xilinx.com/video/corporate/bitmain-technologies-bitcoin-mining.html ) and I feel like that I understand their point of view that they are really losing profit and that they will be will go bankrupt in the next week if they cant screw the next wave of mining profitability. ( lol, you understand my sarcasm )

I'm really glad to follow the squirrel team, they do everything they can to handle the next crypto hype.

Let's do it Smiley

Bitmain ''slowly''?

Idiot. Follow the news!
