Oh didn't got the Jupiter part. Well ok, but even so...having a normal 3TH/s Neptune at 0.7W/Gh you will have ~2.2TH/s(or something close) if you downclock it to 0.5W/GH which would suck considering that it costs so much.

If they can achieve 0.5w/gh at the wall, there is no reason they couldn't give you enough chips for 3th/s. And if they give 3th/s worth of underclocked chips we might see 6th/s overclocked neptunes.

It's pretty much up to knc how much hashrate they will give.

Although they have shown they don't really give a shit about their customers so who knows.

There is no room in the case to put more chips so they can't do it. And even if they could why would they sell something underclocked? It means less chips for them and by now we all know that they are greedy cunts so they will never ship underclocked stuff.

Also you mentioned that knc chips are capable of ~0.7w/gh at the wall. Got a source?

Personal testing and guessing, I got mine to around 0,91-0,93w/GH at the wall while keeping it above 500GH, after that some of the cores started shutting down. So 0,7 should not be much of a problem since people underestimate how quickly efficiency diminishes/increases due to the exponential scaling with core voltage, all about how much performance you are prepared to sacrifice to get there.

I can check out how low I can get it when I have physical access to my jupiter in case I mess something up and need to do a hard reset Tongue Depends as well on how low you are able to go for voltage in software as well on the Jupiter, not really a fan of doing hardware modifications to prove a point.

You don't need to, I was just curious if it had been done.

And even if you couldn't reach 0.7w/gh with the old jupiter boards doesn't necessarily mean the chips can't.

It is very possible the chips are capable of ~0.7w/gh but hashrate might suffer to the point that it's not worth it.

However if you like KNC simply make someone else pay for your NRE costs it made a lot more sense to jump directly to 20 vs 28nm.

Rogaz, sometimes you say something that encourages me to think you are a knowledgeable and insightful guy (forgive me if you are a girl)  and sometimes you say something really stupid.

KNC didn't make anybody pay for their NRE costs. People voluntarily entered into contracts for future delivery of a product (aka pre-order). This is no different that what Spondoolies is doing with the SP30.

Given the economics of bitcoin mining and the difficulty in raising finance for bitcoin related activities from conventional sources, it is often the only way to go. Like Guy said in the Spondoolies thread IIRC … 'we don't have 27 million dollars to finance 3 SP30 batches.'

No pre-orders, no SP30, no Neptune, no progress. There is a race on with bitcoin difficulty and there is no time to tinker around …

this thread used to be for the discussion about some Swedish lot - not a 'who's got the biggest dick' comparison thread.
this should help;




ps. before you even go there.. just because it's in my forking sig, it doesn't mean i'm currently discussing it. get.a.forking.life.


now. KnC's 20nm process was never going to arrive on time - as per their fantasy-like 'schedule' and as a result I held off buying the Neptune (regardless of what happened in the meantime, i'm still mining - it's a hobby, it's not a life-and-death situation as some of these numpties seem to act as though it were).

I am, however, more than happy with my 2nd hand Jupiter, which should still be keeping my house warm this winter, even if it's close to the bone on profitability by then. I just wanna keep in the loop with regards to these titanic thingiemajigs; I got friends who have bought into that one too, and I hope they do actually deliver. Whether something better comes out in the meantime, is yet to be seen.

thanks for putting up with my rant.  Grin

I don't claim that KnCMiner can do it but, I can fit more ASIC in the case.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=313978.msg5535199#msg5535199

I could fit 6-8 ASIC in a Oct./Nov. case WITH 2 PSU, 2 water pumps, 2 controller, and the radiator INSIDE the case.

With external PSUs, pumps, and radiators cound get 12-16 ASIC in there.

YMMV

Just looking back through some of the goings on in this KNC thread. This one caught my eye:

Raskul has proof that KNC won't get their 20nm chips until August …


Yes, I would say that what I have, is proof that it will be august before they get their chips, however, it's my proof and you are not getting to see it  Tongue

seriously though ...because my source would get the sack and i'm not being held responsible for that. Information fed via me means it could be one of 300 employees who leaked this info - so my source is safe (well, until that employee resigns).



Of course, we all know that it happened on the 2nd of June … http://forum.kncminer.com/forum/news-and-anouncments/44983-the-neptune-wafers-have-left-the-building

Fair warning to fellow KNCminers...
Anyone holding BTC should beware that Gox will be liquidating coin soon to pay lawyer fees.
Coinlab backed out, and Japan courts don't like Sunlot's (Brock Pierce & company) offer.
date unknown, but the hearing is set for July 23rd.

How do I know they will be liquidating coin?
Gox doesn't have the cash on hand to pay the fees, and they have entered liquidation proceedings according to Google Hangout and Gox notices.
Being that the only other assets are a car, office furniture, and computer... there's no other option but to sell coin.
There's simply nothing else to "liquidate"
All this smells of coinage sell-off in late July, early August?
Just be careful & ready.....

And who's going to give them the real money if they want to sell that much BTC? They couldn't even afford to pay the taxes on it if they tried to "cash" out. I think having Gox sink or swim and thinking about it is just paranoia. It's just another company in the blackhole of shit fraudulent bitcoin companies. They're old news now and I think their impact on the bitcoin community is pretty much over. Maybe just a tiny little bit repercussions and that's all now.

I think that you intentionally distort the comparison here. Spondoolies ALMOST have the Sp-30, they are 30-45 days away (maybe even closer) while KnC collected the pre-orders in November and still did not deliver until late June (at best), which is full seven months later. In addition, KnC played a clever mindtrick by saying that first batch will be delivered in Q1/Q2 (in some older documents or comments they even said spring). Calling this a possible Q1 product was an exaggeration because they certainly knew that it will NOT be done in Q1. I also find it appalling that they keep making these legalese tricks-like we are not consumers, for example to get from under the consumer protection in EU law.
Whatever they will come up with-good for them, but I will not play the game on these terms.

Of course we know that wafers have left the building. What you don't know is that it appears that there will be some problems. Let me refresh your memory about obstacles:

No "Official" press release, but sounds like they will begin shipping the Neptune next week according to their forum and Twitter.

So you admit that spondooliestech was talking shit when he said that the 20nm wafers would take at least 4 months? (maybe it wasn't a lie but he was simply wrong.)

No, that wasn't my intent Biodom. The intent was to dispute that KNC forced anybody to do anything. They didn't, people voluntarily purchased pre-orders.

My secondary point was really just an allusion to the obvious … pre-orders seem to be a necessary evil at this stage of the mining equipment game and it isn't only KNC who uses them to fund future products.

I am waiting to see what KNC and Bitmain do in the next month or so before I commit any more money to equipment.
The SP30 could well be still born ...

What mining equipment do you own right now?



RoadStress, you are the one who needs to answer my question. I'm not selling anything here.
Will you or will you not SP30 match KNC $/GH on the Neptune they ship and include a 100% refund guarantee ?

Don't rush into anything RoadStress, I'll check back later to see what you have to say

~L)L~

I'd love to pre-order an SP30 ( september deliver ) but too chicken right now. Too many variables out there and margins too thin. $5095 and shipping is $100 more then what the SP10 was, so shipping is $300 now.  Boils down to a non refundable $5395 for a 90 day wait. http://daycalc.appspot.com/09/25/2014
I don't think I'd lose out completely, I would get some return back, but not really knowing how much or if bitcoin will rise is putting me in a circling pattern right now. I'd just rather buy a bunch of bitcoin and hold then go through the purchase process and all that. Since I won't be running a 6TH machine in my home because who has 2400 of watts all ready to go and that is like a monthly car payment figure. Hell, I'm talking myself out of it right here. Tsssk, tssssk, tssssk.
