...
I'm guessing the BBB (BeagleBoneBlack) could be a bottleneck.
...

@ 'Orama/KnC: Could sales of a Jupiter with controllerboard minus BBB be an option ?


if the beaglebone was the bottleneck I'm sure he would of said just that...
There's more (or less) to it they're not revealing.  This seems a bit smelly also.



Perhaps something to do with the FPGA on the controller board interacting with the BBB.

Some of us were aware of the hidden 55nm competition coming online during December.. some of us said things, and we were ignored and laughed at. They're going to keep shipping, non stop.

I was aware of Avalon's claim that they would be producing 2Ph/s worth of gen2 chips per month but after their failed auction and over priced reels in their store I guess I didn't believe they would be hitting the network so soon. I guess it is extremely likely that the recent hashrate is from Bitfury and Avalon gen2 chips...

I had a big trust in KNC but now I'm thinking on a refund too...

If Neptunes will late, they should sell Jupiters for existing customers asap.

Thats what I call customer protection not upgrade modules...

Yep i have no problem with it.

My problem is my jupiter gets about 0.2... at 1Th.

I wanted to buy a few more to keep myself updated against diff rise. They told us to keep some coins handy. I bought only 7 ants to keep the coins for the Jupiters. If I'd bought more ants I've mined back about 80%of the coins.

That is my problem.

I hope you understand.

Sorry to say but it's not about the network anymore. It's about risk, ROI, profit, loss. It's business. They gave false information.

And yeah, I'm angry now.

You have a 1TH Jupiter?? Oct or Nov?

Yeah, I admit I'd like another Jupiter, just to get myself back into the 1BTC a day club, but sounds like it's out of their control. Better them being straight though I guess.

Agree with you on the profit/loss side of things, it's hard to plan more than a few weeks ahead with Bitcoin as a whole.

Why do they "need" to calm down.  Is their concern and frustration bothering you?  Do you work for KNC?  Should everyone be happy?  They pretty much just announced that Q1/Q2 really means Q2.  Most of us expected that anyway but people have a right to be concerned.

Also, announcing that Jupiters would not be sold is a huge bombshell.  I know it pretty much shattered my plans.  I will be making 1/8th of my previous BTC income by the time Neptune arrives.

The answer is really easy.  They just need to keep selling Jupiters every month until they are done with the Neptune and then switch over.  3000 units a month would keep us in competition with CEX.io and any behind the scenes mining ops.  Not selling Jupiters is surrendering the future of mining to non-KNC customers.  It doesn't make sense.  If they want to take their time with the Neptune, they need to give us some hashing power in the meantime.

*clap*

I said this about 600 pages ago, but Jupiter was a proven product, the last batch was made and shipped in a very short period of time and it's just silly to retire it when it''s still the best out there.  KNC should have used the money they made to invest in the neptune themselves and announce it much nearer the time

I have a very early order for a neptune but was only willing to gamble on one of them with the vague timeline and it's looking a wise decision at this point.

Many of us and KNC themselves no doubt expected a lull in the hashrate growth after the last jupiters shipped but this has not been the case with even greater quantities of hardware appearing to maintain the 30% per difficulty jumps

This means we need new hardware and as said above by rolling, if KNC don't offer anything the money will be going elsewhere, and if they wait too long and another serious competitor appears then mass refunds will follow which will do nothing to help knc's future.
