Just a little bit of info regarding KnC
They contact ckolivas and myself at the end of May regarding cgminer and related information.

They then stated they'd be sending (in July) mock up devices (with an internal RPi) for us to work with on cgminer, then in September the real (faster) devices to tune cgminer to.

I have, however, heard nothing since, but no doubt expect to hear something soon.

I'll keep everyone posted if anything happens Smiley

a picture of the casing would blow my mind. i would be so happy just to see what it looks like. i heard from the open day that its going to be more like a "cage" so air can pass through and fingers wont get burned.

The 6th image is an eASIC board perhaps you need to look it up on Google, it's not an ASIC designed from the ground up, but a programmable prototype that gets converted to an easicopy production ASIC. Most of the FPGA vendors have this kind of service to some extent. The type of thing we are talking about for KNCminer is a totally different beast, though I would imagine an eASIC prototype would be a viable test of the logic.

ORSorc are a channel partner for eASIC.




So the KNC ASIC miners are based upon eASIC's and not a cell based ASIC?

How else would the lead times they are claiming be possible?   There is no way they are designing a full chip.   It really makes me wonder how they are getting these numbers they are claiming though?

I don't know if they are using eASIC for this project, not enough info has come out yet. It would be interesting to know.

That (eASIC) potential is the only thing that ever made any sense to me, and the relationship between them and OrSoC is the only reason I've given this any real credibility.

There are some things that just aren't vanilla here, though, and that's why, if the $3.5MM NRE number is real, there must be something new in the works. 

Remember something when you think about these developments by entities that aren't kids or firms which lack the scientific guidance like in the case of BFL.  Bitcoin is going to generate 3600 coins per day for many, many years to come.  That hasn't escaped the notice of many people who can, and are, taking that seriously.

If by "many, many years" you mean less than 4, then we are in agreement Cheesy.

To my knowledge this has been confirmed previously, and it is not eASIC.

Well, if you think BTC is only going to be around for four more years, then let's figure out a way to really short these things, and just be done with it.  Wink

Oh, wait: selling mining equipment is a bear bet on bitcoin after all, isn't it?

Honestly, I don't know the noise-free information on that; I do have recollection of that being denied or asserted to be not feasible. 

Still, there's a lot more that makes sense to me on that path, and there is a known relationship between OrSoC and eASIC. 

I really don't know.
