All,
 
You have all been waiting for an update on our chips and we can today announce that the Fabrication process has finished and the wafers are on their way to the packing assembly house right now. They will be in the assembly house for a few days before they make their way to us in Sweden  and of course via the fastest method possible.

 While it’s going to be a tight and we always knew it was. Time to market is everything in this business after all. We have also broken a few speed records in this business to bring a design to market in the fastest time possible.  But we are still on track to have Jupiter/Saturn shipping this month.

 We will update this news site as often as we can with news. We will even have some videos this week from our Swedish assembly factory as some of our smaller parts begin to be assembled ready for full production the minute the chips arrive.

 We would also like to take this opportunity to say that while we have remained as silent as possible on our simulations and only promised figures that we know we can meet. we will not down clock our chips to 400 we will release all our machines with the greatest hashing power we can. So yes the rumors are true Jupiter will be greater than 400 by a significant margin as a free gift from us to all our loyal customers. The first chips off of the production line we will run at full speed in our launch video so you can all see exactly how fast we can make Jupiter run.
 
Thanks

hh.)

"we are still on track to have Jupiter/Saturn shipping this month" - this was mentioned about 482x in this thread, almost every day.
"Jupiter will be greater than 400" - this was mentioned about 351x in this thread, almost every day.
"Time to market is everything in this business after all" - this was mentioned 5472x on this board, every day.

numbers should be slightly different

so nothing new, no photos, no videos, no delivery dates for 1st/2nd day of delivery. just couple of already known facts and promise about new video.

A bit early to celebrate. Pretty much nothing could have gone wrong so far, barring the TSMC fab burning down or being struck by an earthquake, once you tape out and start a wafer run, you are going to get wafers. Thats not good news, thats just a given.
 
But you still have no idea how these chips will pan out. They may not work at all, they may not perform as expected, there may all kinds of problems packaging them. You havent been able to test the PCBs, firmware, software, well anything really.

Given the enormous time to market pressure I cant blame these guys for hoping for the best, but there is no other industry in the world where they expect to ship to consumers less than 2 weeks after receiving their first processed wafers. For the record, it took BFL like 6 months or so?

Wafers have to be cut in parts, tested and packaged (5 days or more). They have to customs/fly to sweden (3 days or more, if knc will not rent a charter plane). Then testing boards/software/production line update/packaging  (5 days or more). Then shipping abroad (3 days or more).

They have 16 days in best scenario (if there will be 0 error/perfect work but in IT it is not possible).

That gives 1 october first delivery. It is very unlikely.

...
So either its that, and you get screwed by difficulty,  or you believe most or all of them are exaggerating/lying, in which case, chances are your rig wont arrive in time either.
You are screwed either way, unless you get lucky enough that your miner does ship roughly on time, and almost none of the others. Good luck with that.
Two other ways to do OK:
Be on the hardware development team

or
Be a well known miner dev
Then you usually end up waiting less than most people so you can get things working for when people get the hardware.
We don't get too many "Thanks for writing cgminer - fuck you - ha ha" like KnC have done Smiley

again ?

guys please before posting just skim through the last few pages, usually someone else already posted the same a few mins before you, especially when we're talking about kncminer.com/news.

you know that there are some crazy geeks that had made a script to check knc sites for changes every few secs, don't you?

Xialla has a point.

Normally, when you are buying such a time-sensitive, professional device, as a customer you are updated about every step of the process, as you need as much info as possible to decide wether to go ahead or cancel. You should get to know when they are receiving the critical parts (chips), what's the schedule from now on (exactly: with days), and in which precise day your devices will be shipped.
