This is way too shady now with fpgas. Their numbers don't make sense. They can barely make a giant lancelot when all the work has already been done for them. No way in hell are they making asics. If they were capable of making asics they wouldn't be wasting time on giant lancelots. That 48 board will take 1000 watts to power it.

Blackarrow is the fpga expert who I just received lancelot clones from. I'll ask them for their opinion. China is a hussle and these guys are completely in the mix.

These guys? http://www.blackarrowsoftware.com/

yes

+1.  There is nothing wrong to use FPGAs in the development of ASIC.  But to actually produce and sell them at this point does not make sense.  ASICMiner blades/erupter are available now.  Avalons will ship once they get their production line kinks resolved.  Not sure what their business plans are but
if they want to deliver ASICs and be competitive, that is what they should be working on.
FPGA products done in parallel just divert resources to a dead end, money loser project.

only 24 chips in the pic above?

-1 the web page demonstrates two modules; https://www.kncminer.com/products/mars

They're certainly saving cash on casing though...

Even bfl was religiously on this forum. It's disrespectful for them not to be posting.

Sam or KNC -> able to explain how you will fit 8 blades into a 6 sided cube? Will each Mars actually be double this size?

Their website shows a double module device. that is one module maybe?
Where did you find that picture?

It's on their homepage -> third pic in the carrousel.

Anyone else feel it looks a little janky?

It's not exactly the most impressive case and I don't recall another unit that has used PCBs as part of the structural integrity. With that said, if it works I don't particularly care how pretty or even fragile it might be. If it can survive shipping, uses reasonable power and delivers reasonable hash rates then everything else is just fluff, no?

Interesting times over in the KnCMiner thread.  Just wanted to say if you do get any information I would love to update my chart.  I know they seem like a long shot at this point.  Fun to watch nonetheless!

Agreed - the shipping aspect is what caused my knitting brow.  Embarrassed

It is a prototype, likely cobbled together just for demo purposes.

You really think that "enclosure" is the shipping product?  Grin

My question is: how frickin big will the final product be with 8 cards rather than 4??

At a guess...twice the size

PCBs don't strike me as an ideal component to utilize in the case itself. I suppose so long as we can tear the case apart and stack them then there's no problem there.

If they are going to go with one of those designs they might as well use a metal chassis instead.

Oh, a new image of a prototype without any context. Must be the final design and fake!
