Current board costs are tentatively set to $130 (but paid in equivalent BTC), and are subject to change depending on how many boards are ordered. If you order 20 or more boards, the cost will be $10 less per board.

Is this the cost of the bare board or does it include assembly and/or additional components (heatsinks, standoffs, fans, etc.)?

That is everything you need to run the board except power, so heatsink and fan are included.

How many chips planned for each host board?

It will be a modular design similar to Avalon's, where there are a number of chips per "card" that can be plugged into the board. This makes it so if one piece fails it is easily replaceable, as opposed to boards where everything is together Smiley

Will it be possible to send the chips from you to the manufacturer of the boards and then have them shipped to us?

Yes, this is exactly what the plans are.

Are you still going to use the 16 chip board design?

Stress-testing on the real blockchain or testnet? And for how long? Sounds like you're hinting that I should buy some more cog shares :p

Anyway btc for 20 chips headed your way, going to wait to see how difficulty and price fluctuates as well as your plans before considering more.

On a side note, and this is probably the wrong thread to ask you, but do you have any plans to put some asic boards into action for cognitive?

Either you own the bitcoins(private keys) or you don't. However with moneroj, nobody knows what you own.

Testing will be done on both the real bitcoin blockchain. There's no sense in boosting the testnet diff and not making money... that's a lose-lose!

Thanks for your order Smiley

And yes, the Cognitive boards are a part of this group-buy (actually the first in queue) so they will be online as soon as the rest of these!

Best,
Garrett

I am interested in purchasing some chips and a board but am a bit new to the ASIC DIY stuff. I am familiar with soldering boards and surface mount, however. I have seen various DIY board discussions, is this different from the other DIY board discussions and group buys?

I have seen this thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=161715.msg2426942#msg2426942

And a few others.

Then my question is, how many chips designed for each "card"?
Hope I understand your answer of the hosting board somehow  Smiley

Yes this is entirely different. We are using a custom overclocked board that will use the same chips to achieve a better hashrate, blowing the competition out of the water which achieving over 340mh/s per chip.

Then my question is, how many chips designed for each "card"?
Hope I understand your answer of the hosting board somehow  Smiley

Yes, you should purchase chips in increments of 16 or 80. Currently we can host 80 chips per controller, between five hashing cards of 16 chips each. We hope to modify our power controls to be able to host 300+ chips per controller, but that will depend heavily on parts sourcing which is being taken care of this week Smiley

Cheers,
Garrett

So, there aren't going to be any K64 boards only K16s (standard/OC'ed) for $130?

These overclockable boards are not K16s or K64s. They're designed by a private developer I am working closely with, not BkkCoins.

The boards will house 16 chips and cost at most $130 per 16 chips, probably less when we finalize parts sourcing Smiley

Garrett

Don't tease us like that!  Tongue

Do you have a rough total as to the number of chips/boards queued for production thus far? Has anything been mentioned about a different assembly completion timeframe from the new private developer?

Separate from this group-buy, I have over 1000 boards that I will be producing in conjunction with this developer. Design should be finalized and in full-scale production in mid July, which is still before our Avalon chips will even arrive Smiley

So, you would be selling just the bare PCB or boards fully assembled with chips? (ie. chips I've bought from this group buy).

Would be curious about timeframe also. I.e. "1 week after chips delivery" or 2 weeks or 3... Based on your fab capacity.

I will be selling fully assembled boards, chips + heatsinks mounted and ready to go, to group-buy participants only. I expect there to be a 5 business day maximum lead time, but these numbers will not be solidified until parts sourcing has been taken care of.

Shit if you want to pay me in pcb boards ill drive up and help pack up/ship orders!  Grin

Sounds like plans are coming together, cant wait for some finalized details. I'll be ordering more chips next week when coinbase clears.

Note: Due to the extremely competitive offering here, I will be raising the price per chip to 0.2 effective Saturday, June 22.

If you are in MilkyLep's situation, waiting for money to clear, I will work with you to secure a deposit to lock in the lower price.

I'm already outsourcing all of that work, but thanks for the offer Tongue

MAn, I was waiting to see what my eta was from TH before deciding on a refund and purchasing from you at BTC.1.

Also, 350 MH/s is not 150% more than other boards. It is 25% more or 1.25 times.

Aw, man. Didn't notice the price increase to .2, yet. I don't have that much to put in for 16 chips. No way to get the .1 rate, still?
