1421 pages. I wonder what percentage of that content is OT.

on topic - KnC - I want an update on the status of the Neptunes, please.

Neptunes are still very much in the preliminary design phase. As much as the timeline will be reduced significantly in comparison to a standard engineering project at 20nm, if such exists, because this is absolute bleeding edge we want to be absolutely sure what we commit to silicon will ensure a successful product at the end. This initial phase will not be rushed.

That said we have completely re-written and optimised the RTL code. The Jupiter project was very much focused upon safe speed to market and the window of opportunity hashing power presented in this present finite period prior to significant competition. The Neptune project whilst adhering to aspects of the aforementioned must focus upon power consumption as it's primary trait if customers (you guys) will be able to compete successfully over a longer period. We know that we are reaching limits on standard household circuits, we want you to remain competitive w.r.t. the unfolding mining landscape and we are all to well aware that electricity costs will come into focus in the not too distant future.

So where we are now is that we have a working FPGA code and are in the process of testing that and tweaking any further refinements before it's submission.

With respect to the speculation above we sold out of Neptune's last night.

Make my day! Say thanks if you found me helpful Smiley BTC Address --->

Thanks for the update and congratulations on selling out. Do you know if there are any plans to ship with a PSU, or if we will need to provide them ourselves?

Also, bit of a daft question, but in the reseller accounts the neptunes are broken up by batch, if for example i had sold 9 from batch one, and 1 from batch 2, would i still be eligible for my bonus unit, or does it have to be 10 from one batch?

Will Jupiters or Upgrade modules be available soon?

Thanks Orama.

See folks, as some of us said before.. Q2 is a strong likelihood.. Not next month like some folks were thinking, for some doped-up reason.

Thanks for the update,

+1.. since the website advertises modular upgradability, would be nice to use that function.

I'll check, but I imagine same rules apply. Don't quite understand why anyone ships with a PSU due to the customs complications this presents in certain countries, especially when they are easily obtainable elsewhere (with enough warning).

It's likely to be something like 2x something chunky wattage wise PSUs. IDK off the top of my head those EVGA 1300W Supernovas should cover all bases with headway in case any additional is required.

Final numbers we can never have at this stage in the game, but headway is good of course. Obv w.r.t. optimisation we want to bring the hashrate up, and the power consumption down , and we are trying our best to achieve that for all of you and do so as expedited as we can safely whilst cautiously respecting this level of tech.

I believe it's more likely to be upgrade module, there appears to be a bottleneck on acquiring controller boards.

Yes thanks for the update.  Looking forward to progress and news that the 20nm design has taped out.

...but please tell me you will at least have room in the case for standard ATX power supplies.  The tangle of wires on the outside of the machine is really quite ridiculous.  It was understandable on the Jupiters due to the time constraints but there is really no excuse for it on the Neptunes.

Again that's after we're happy and Alchip are happy with the final design before submission. 20nm is not 28nm, there's more risk and we fully intend to mitigate such where possible. We're moving as fast as we can, we're where I said we were aiming to be before Christmas, but we're respecting this tech. It's very much untrodden ground and as before we want this to work first time.

Perhaps, but the reduced footprint brought shipping costs down significantly. I'll pass the concern on though.

so, would that mean that November Jupiter customers with be SOL getting more KNC hashing power prior to Neptune release?

This is a MUST if we want to use datacenters. Also, server power supplies would fit much easier and are capable of higher wattages. Also, server power supplies aren't necessarily more expensive than ATX PSUs when calculating watts/$.

Why? Your unit has a controller board, it's the rectangular thing with a beaglebone in front of your hashing modules.

Are you suggesting that Nov Jupiter owners mod their miners to accommodate more modules? I know, you're not - but that's what people are reading when you say that. Perhaps you were referring to Saturns?

Sorry yes, I stand corrected. I know and you know FWIW warranty covers unmodded units, although some have been able to mod their units.

I'm in favor of this as well.  Something similar to the CoinTerra units.

right, but it lacks the headers for connecting additional modules that the October units do have.

Man what a downer. I have about 20btc stashed away to order more jupiters, held off on ordering 2 more neptunes. Seems like the gamble to wait for jups didnt pay off. Oohh well

+1

We were waiting for more Jupiters...

I'll wait till the end of january and spend the whole bag of btc on Ants....

If only upgrade modules will be sold I think Network protection screwed up...
