what's the tl;dr answer to March shipping of these units?  Weren't the first batch promised to ship by March?
Well I'm not privy to what's going on in the factory but I also never sign any NDAs so I can tell you there is a mad scramble to get hardware out ASAP and they've been leaning hard on me to try and make sure the first firmware it's being released with works as reliably and solidly as possible. There will definitely be firmware updates in the future but for now things seem to be pretty close. I got involved very late in the piece and I've worked very hard in the last couple of weeks but there are limits to my time and just what I can achieve to get working code out.

One thing I have managed to achieve is to add tuning to the driver. The driver has a 5 stage tuning process to try and set the lowest stable voltage possible for minimal power consumption and then it tunes each chip individually to the highest frequency it will tolerate to try and optimise the hashrate. It also has a PID type fan controller to try and maintain optimal temperature with minimal fanspeed. There are a few emergency things included too in case of fan failure, chain dropouts etc.

So auto tune  like the s-9  with no option to down clock  or over clock?

Or do I misunderstand you?

Btw in no way  am I  voting for or against auto tune

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

There is a plan to implement options for tuning frequency or for power or efficiency but not in the first firmware. From what I've seen of the web interface it will be pretty sparse to begin with. I also believe that first silicon is probably going to be less efficient while they finalise manufacturing.

By the way anyone mining on ckpool.org would have noticed a transient rise in hashrate there today. This is burn testing the first batch of hardware.

Cool.
That's a nice thing from Halong supporting the ckpool.org by having it as a factory default for burn-in testing purpose,
similar to what Canaan is doing by having kano.is as the factory default in their burn-in test process.

Totally agree! Very cool indeed! Big props to Halong for supporting -ck's pool. It's truly Great to see these newer companies give
something back to the community.

It is indeed the community since there's no fee on my pool and only the miners on ckpool.org stand to benefit.  Not directing more hashpower at a large pool is great for decentralisation.

It only makes sense for them to use a smaller pool. CKPOOL would be the obvious choice as they already have a working relationship.

I don't know if there is extra data they are looking for besides the burn in rates for their machines. If they are why not use the pool run by the person writing code for you.

It's not like their were going to go and point them at Antpool; and start mining for the competition  Grin

I figured something related to that is why Canaan don't talk to me any more.  These days they only send me advertisements like any other customer. Cheesy

Canaan certainly wants to keep their customers happy, and with their warranty,  and reliable products they do. Going back "on topic" before the mod deletes our posts Wink, it would be nice to see that amount of Customer Service and Support from Halong too. It would certainly repair their reputation from the way the Dragonmint was shrouded in secrecy. The #1 reason people believe that it's real is because of YOU -ck. Had they not chosen you, the only other reliable, trusted information would come from philipma's inquiries.

Do you know if Kano.is will be supporting version rolling asic boost and the DragonMint T1?
I like the idea of a smaller pool but too small like 1 block a month scares me, I would be happy to join kano.is if they supported the T1.

You should ask Kano that question.

Kano said he'll support it if someone gets one and points it to a test pool so he can tune the pool's code and test ASICBOOST. I'll do that when mine arrives, if no one else beats me to it.

Awesome.

I'm eagerly waiting to see deep inside a DragonMint unit.  

I'm so glad it worked out great for you Phil,
thumbs up for mr. Yoshi Goto.  Smiley

Halong has not made any further contact with me after our latest messages and the retail price is too high for me,
so most likely I won't be having a DragonMint unit for a review.

Until Phil or someone else that isn't Halong makes an actual review of this hardware that shows these miners actually running with substantial proof, this is fine in Mining Speculation.

Keep us updated and put the review in Hardware when you get it, Phil! Can't wait to see how the DragonMint actually mines, and the moment when people realize Halong isn't an absolute scam after all Cheesy. It's been a while since anything of note that is legit has been released.
