Now that there is new data on die size, I updated the GH/wafer table:
Code:
wafer(mm)   chip         process(nm)  die(mm^2)   GH/s(per die)      DpW   GH/s(per wafer)
300         KnC              28        441,00          25            128          3200,00
300         bitfury          55         14,44           2           4717          9434,00
300         bfl              65         56,25           4           1167          4668,00
300         asciminer(?)    130         17,50           0,333       3877          1291,04
300         avalon          110         16,13           0,282       4214          1188,35
300         asciminer(?)    130         21,7            0,333       3112          1036,30
(DpW, die per wafer; yield percentage not taken into account)

Die size is less than 336mm2.
I think 18x18mm


Another detail for a better table. As far as I know, 130nm(110nm) are still manufactured based on 200mm wafers. 65nm(55nm) nodes were the first built with 300mm.

Ummmm. KnC is doing a 28nm process and getting only a third of the GH/s per wafer that bitfury is getting at 55nm?

its ok, all the knc supporters tell me that its not an issue. Since they dont care about power i guess, which leads me to the conclusion that they have unlimited power capacity at their mining location. Oh ya they will also say that the power usage predictions are the worst case scenario so it can be better than bitfury when released.

um.... Yeah? If you had read some more in here you would know that they like to understate specs instead of giving specs that look good but can't be made into reality...

BFL had more per wafer also, and they have been getting chips made for a while now... So it most certainly has been "made into reality", for less, at an inferior process node.

What's more concerning is the 25GH/s per die. Where is the data that says they are using 4 dies per package?

Pray tell, where exactly did I mention BFL? funny thing that you mention them... I only told you what KNC stated, which is only that they don't like to give specs they can't deilver,

The answer is no by the way.

Anyway, the most important question regarding the project schedule and the feasibility of the announced start date for delivery is:
When was the tape-out of the ASIC executed? If not executed yet, when is the tape-out planned for?



Be careful dude, I made that question for weeks and I was lynched by the wishful thinkers and wet dreamers

We don't have the numbers in yet to be able to say for sure. But partly Bitfury is doing a full custom ASIC and will likely result in a more efficient chip overall than KNC's, at least for this generation.

opentoe, the last 5 posts are from you.  It's possible that you may wound a little too tight for the pre-order ASIC mining game.

just my 2c

Orders placed now will be shipped in October.  If you ordered in the first week or two then you will get yours in September.

Don't buy a Power Supply yet as the final specs aren't yet known.  They have specifically said they will consume LESS than 1000W and have told those planning on purchasing 1200W power supplies not to purchase until the final specs are published.

As for the pause in shipment, this is a VERY good thing for us.  KnC has the highest capacity to produce mining hardware at the moment, the less they produce after we receive our equipment, the faster we will gain ROI and turn a profit.

The only other thing I can say is calm down, buy a puppy or something.

Apparently since this version of SMF is so damn old your responses are all posted into separate posts. The newer version of SMF has the ability to combine responses into one post. I remember the owner/operator of this website was going to upgrade and even had like a few hundred thousand worth of American dollars in bitcoin, but here we still are....using and old shit ass version of SMF.

If Bitfury are getting so many dies per wafer, why are they charging so much for it? They are basically charging similar to BFL to the prices I have seen, yet they are getting twice as many GH/s per wafer. So far KNCminer seem to be the only ones trying to get the ASIC price a bit more reasonable.

Bitfury august delivery rate is similar to BFL.  Their October delivery rates are similar to KnC.

At the end of the Day, the only thing we need to be concern is can we get our miners in September 2013? ? Can we get them? How many of us are 100% confident without a doubt??

If you are confident without a doubt you are probably insane. There is no 100% guarantee for it (or anything really), but according to KNC they are still on track to deliver in September.

KNC has had many weeks to change their ship date / times. Here it is already almost AUGUST, if they haven't said anything by now hopefully we won't hear anything bad. If they happen to send out a news letter the last day of AUGUST indicating about delays, there will probably be a lot of unhappy campers.

They claim full refunds until they ship, so if they do that then they'll have some cancellations for sure. Wait and see. Their UP;OD (under-promise; over-deliver) stance belies such a reading.

Most likely they've already ordered chips and they're being fabbed right now. They already said everything they needed to order has been ordered.

Simply because there are plenty of people who will pay it.  They even announced a 5 GB GHps USB stick for Nov delivery for -I don't know exactly, I was laughing so hard - $350 or so.  And people were posting about how many they were buying.

I started to comment on the prices per GB on their sale threads, and then thought:  if they can get it, more power to 'em.  Dave is my new hero.

But it won't last forever.  Never does.

On a slightly different track: What about KnC making second generation USB miners? USB 3.0 specs, 0.9A, 1+GHs, priced at around 50-80 dollars. Would it be feasible with regard to production costs, power consumption, heat dissipation?
If yes, that would be a nice entry-level alternative miner to Erupter and K1, which would still be useful at higher difficulties, while promoting decentralisation of hashing. And a great gifting gadget. Smiley
Won't happen for a couple reasons. One, they don't want the shipping and support headache of having thousands of customers buying a cheap device. Secondly, their chip isn't conducive to USB mining--it's large, huge power draw and heat-spreading needs. The two philosophies go hand in hand.

I did not mean the chip that they are currently developing, but another one, which they could develop in parallel, but still on 26nm process.

Quote from: aamarket

Pity. Those LittleFuries was what I was thinking of (without knowing of them) when I suggested a few days ago that KnC should make USB 3.0 miners.
https://store.bitcentury.io/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_30&product_id=42
They would have been cheaper than AsicMiner's USB sticks.

With a 59% or more rise in difficulty next increase (https://blockchain.info/charts/hash-rate) I wonder whether I should cancel my Saturn order?

All manufacturers seem to have large orders due to be shipped before KnCMiner ships so Jumps of 110,000GH/s per fortnight may continue several more times if not each difficulty change.

Current jump is more than total capacity beginning of June!

I had been thinking of upgrading Saturn to Jupiter. Now it's unlikely. More likely I cancel during next few weeks while I still can!

Hopefully their planned March 2014 offering will make a good investment & ROI.
