There may be some sort of language barrier going on here...

Quote
I wanted to take our 800M/hash miner to the market place but with a top end GPU or FPGA unit 800M/hash was nothing special.
...
April 3rd , Finally some success We had almost had it right for months , We made 4 of the 800M/hash boards and eventually managed to get them all working properly together, after running the miner for 20 days non stop. We deiced to start ordering more parts.

The 3.1 – 3.3 G/hash ASIC miner was born.

4 * 800 Mh/s = 3.2 Gh/s. I think they might be under the impression that an ASIC miner is simply a multi-gigahash miner...

Which actually makes this sound even more like a scam. If they spent about a year building this thing, shouldn't one of them have caught on to the fact that ASIC is an acronym (just like FPGA) for a completely different technology?

Can anyone see a simple adsl modem motherboard in that picture on the main site? i can see a phone line plug (the grey port) next to a inductor coil (the yellow and black box next to it) the yellow network connector, next to a switch, next to a barrel type power plug? with the caption under the picture: "mage above: main control board + my ipod and mouse for scale." and that soldered aluminium can is EMS shield for the SoC...

sorry, when i looked at the post, clicked the link, passed all other posts and went eh, no, obvious fake...

Doesn't matter if they are a scam. Read the FAQ. 155.2W at 3.3GH/s at best.

So, 21.26MH/J. An X6500 FPGA has better efficiency (23.25MH/J).

With such a sob-story in "About Us," it's pretty clear they are a scam. Not to mention that board seems to have some things I don't think it should have.

If it's all true though, they failed pretty hard when they could have mass-ordered some Spartan 6 FPGAs, built some boards and had better efficiency miners with those.

And for a "graduate of Napier University in Edinburgh" he has really shitty English skills. The grammar. It burns my eyes.

That aluminium(?) plate shield near the top taking 1/3 of the board space looks like something from a telecommunications board. I've seen it is modems, cable phone equipment. Yellow ethernet slot...

Yeah I don't buy this for a second.

Look at it. Row of green LEDs on the front, single yellow phone/ethernet in and power, no cooling solution of any kind. This is a broadband modem motherboard. I'm searching around to see if I can find this exact one somewhere.


EDIT

Yeah they must think we are pretty stupid...

Please don't send your money to these people, people...they barely even put in the effort to scam you of your coin.
