Additional Investors wanted !
to accelerate return on investment.

ASIC is due Fall/Winter 2013

What is the difference?

Our initial plan is to sell 50% and run other 50% for our investors.
Units that we will sell will be 4U rack mountable and modular, but you can easily turn them 90 degrees and it will stand like a mid-size tower computer. Modularity will allow customers to buy base unit for a lower price and then upgrade processing power as needed by buying additional modules.

We have to keep our Intellectual Property protected and abide by NDA we have signed with chip manufactures so please understand that there are some things that I can't divulge, but I will try my best to answer any questions that you may have.

BTW, I am not an electrical engineer, so give me a break on that. I am the CEO.

Details so far:
$19.98/GH - Fixed for pre-orders only. Auctioned live when pre-orders had been filled.
G1-14-X3-240GH - $4,795 (288W-1,440W on 120V/15A)
G1-14-X4-320GH - $6,384 (384W-1,920W on 120V/20A)

To be able to fuller utilize 15A and 20A on 120V circuit or their multiples, or other voltage variations, we had made 3x and 4x module design to fit into 15A and 20A respectively.

Target power use is between 1.2W-6W/GH depending on final implementation. We will do everything possible to cost effectively lower power consumption, but cost of power between 1.2W-6W/GH is negligible vs our system's performance and should only account for less than 1% at a going rate, so not much to worry about. Fair enough?

Many of our competitors had quoted and continue to quote unrealistic power use numbers or only chip power numbers without power use by supporting electronics and cooling. They do that mostly due to inexperience in engineering and/or in running a business, so in the matters where we only know approximate range of numbers I will just tell you straight the range of numbers.

While we did initially stated that we were contemplating 20nm ASIC, from this point on, we will not be releasing chip specifications only the hash rate and power consumption as the exact underlying technology makes no difference and we would like to protect our IP.

Tentative shipping schedule:
~ 10 weeks @ 50 units a day
~ 8 weeks @ 100 units a day
then @ 200+ units a day

      Week of    Units/week   Total GH to be shipped
  1  2013-Oct-28     250            62,500
  2  2013-Nov-4      500           125,000

===========

P.S. The posts that follow in this thread from some forum members are outright vicious and disrespectful, so be prepared. It's a free speech on the internet after all.

Updates:
(The reason I post updates here is because my investors do read this forum, but I would like to worn them that if you identify yourself be prepared to be trolled to tears.)

2013-03-27 - Thank you everyone for your kind and unkind posts. They certainly will keep me on my toes. I will not be engaging trolls by defending me or people with similar names, there is no point. Thanks to everyone who PMed me, but please don't send PM's, instead please email to info@GalaxyASIC.com My plans were initially not to take consumer pre-orders, but to sell part of a company to investors. But I realized that in such case investors will get much better deal than consumers, plan is evolving. The only reason that there is a plan to sell 50% to consumers is to bring higher value to the product and reliability to Bitcoin.

2013-03-28 - Several investors demanding faster delivery than we originally planned or is possible due to technology, so while my first team will be working on 20nm first ASIC, I will be hiring more engineers to work in parallel on our second chip that will come out first in about 3-5 month. I will not be publicly disclosing the technology or specs because it will only be available to investors since it doesn't threaten 51% attack and because I don't want anyone copying us. Investors will have more, but not all info under NDA.

2013-06-17 - Some spec corrections to accommodate modular design.

Hmm.. interesting.. probably beat BFL too.. lol

Prepare for an extensive background check.. this forum has some decent google detectives..

If this is legit.. then best of luck.. we need more competition with ASIC.. given the current pre-order pricing from the only company that has delivered thus far.

I am a bit surprised that you plan to cool 32amps/120V in a 4U case. Care to comment on that?

(To Be Determent Determined) - we will try to make it affordable.

OK I'm going to just help you out and let you know about these mistakes.  Not trying to troll, just hate spelling and grammar errors!

Good luck!  I hope to see progress in the near future.

@Vladimir
it's not 32Amp/120V its only circuit breaker that big, but specked power draw is 2250 + power-supply inefficiency

@Vicus
@Entropy-uc
Can't disclose name of a foundry yet, NDA. By the time we will be ready manufacturer will already be producing 20nm.

Given that Intel is 2 years ahead of the industry and they just started shipping 22nm product, I think you are living in Strawberry Shortcake land.

And now I call bullshit.

Every foundry's roadmap is published 5 years in advance, publicly so that the supply chain can be ready.  There is no NDA on that data.

So go ahead and show us all one foundry with a roadmap to start shipping production wafers this fall at 20nm.

Then explain how you will get any wafer starts when Apple, Qualcomm, Broadcomm, Altera, Xilinx, NVidia, and 50 other $Billion/year fabless companies are all fighting for the same wafer starts.

Get a new nickname, and a better story for your scam next time.

I was under this impression that their books are locked for months to years in advance.   Please give us something more to go on.

I didn't say that their PR or road map is under NDA, it's public info, I said that my agreement with them is under NDA and time haven't come till they permitted us to do the public announcement.

I dont give a flying shiet.

Dont ask for preorders. Take orders when you're ready to ship and have been done demo your products to public prior.

Otherwise, get the fuck off .

Many here expect there will be "announcements" for magical ASICs that makes lot of BTC,but all will be viewed highly with suspicion with regards to even there existence.Good luck on your 'marketing'.

Good luck with the project; hopefully you've learn something from all the other ASIC start up attempts (i.e. Avalon, bASIC, BFL). I highly suggest you show proof of your product before you consider launching a pre-order/sales campaign. If you worked with a more senior member of the community (i.e. one of the major pool operators / a core dev) you'll be less likely to be accused of a being a scammer.

If you think TSMC is going to give any attention to Bitcoin ASICs when they have the likes of Intel, Apple and nVidia to deal with... well, I wish you best of luck  Wink

This 20nm process bothers me very much. How can there be a company holding such a technology and not having any public presentations about it, they would have so many big customers if they would just announce the technology instead of trying to hide it until some <500k bitcoin ASICs are produced. Doesn't really sound like that foundry's best interest.
