Apparently not.  I wish they were so we could hear some feedback from those who get them.

Tempted almost to stop by their office in Austin when I go out that way later this year to see what's up.

So will members be able to buy a single 1u, or are we looking at full racks only?

They talked like they will sell individual 1u rigs.  They also said the price per unit can go lower if bought in bulk.

They said they doubt there would be much of a market for them if they could not get them around $2,000 each 1u.  I would pay a bit more depending on the hash rate and power consumption when the new chips come out and if they are able to get SPT's new chips.  That's still an unknown.  I would appreciate more communication...

Are you sure that does not seem right, as that is not an amount that would leave you with full management cards or full racks.  You would wind up with about half a rack of equipment in one cabinet.

Hi All,

Sorry for the silence.  I will fill you in on our current state of affairs.

We have not shipped any units.  At this point profit is extremely slim.  The risk to us, and to you the customer is too great at the moment.    With only a limited supply of ASICs, this limits our ability to fully ramp up production before we would have to stop again.  Limited ASICs and profits mean limited ability for warranty as there may be no way to get replacement parts.

The best way for us to care for our future customers is to stay viable as a company and have a successful launch.

Our current strategy is to work on our next gen hashing modules with the next gen ASICs.

Our plan for the little guys is to open orders along side any large deployments we have.   This will allow you to get the exact same pricing the big guys get!   Your only extra expense will be shipping/handling.  We of course will be ordering extras for warranty replacements and some for immediate sale.

I will see if I can get my mechanical engineer to shoot me some renderings of our air-cooled system.
Also if there are any MUST have features you would like to see in a home miner feel free to shoot them to me.

We did mine live with our system at the Inside Bitcoins New York.  A couple forum members did stop by to witness.  Maybe they can chime in here to verify.

Ill try and stick around on the forums a bit more.  Feel free to shoot any questions to me via skype or email as well.

Hi Nathan,

Thanks for the shout out (update).  It's appreciated greatly!!!

I feel you are making a wise choice with the next generation ASIC's to have a better chance with a good start and continued success.  We need another manufacturer in the mix to help those of us who wish to grow in the mining world.  My plans are to move out to Washington State the 4th quarter of this year or 1st quarter of next year to have access to low power costs and grow as a miner.  I'm not going to do it if I can't buy next gen ASIC's.  It would be pointless to pick up my family and move out there if I can't get next gen ASIC's.

I already have 60TH/s.  I want to start out with 200 Th/s at a minimum when I move out there.  So, I have quite a bit to add when I move out there.  I wouldn't mind the 140 TH/s I add [at a minimum] being your equipment.

Thanks for taking the time to do this right!!!  Patience is a virtue.

David

Wise move to not pursue this current generation.  With market and supply uncertainties, you are more valuable to us consumers in the long run (keeping the hardware industry more diverse) as opposed to taking a risk and having your current gen end up like the last Avalon launch (too little, too expensive, too late).  I hope you guys have the means to stick around in this industry until the next launch (and hope that that launch is available to you!)  It's a lot to be putting out in these uncertain times, but you definitely have our support.

Personally, I have a small farm (30 kW), but for heat management and distribution, this is definitely something I would be interested in.  Ducting heat via liquid is heck of a lot easier than ducting hot air, and would allow me to offset a lot more of my business' heating bills in the winter.  Here's to hoping you'll have something on the market by the fall!

Hi Nathan,

I'm just checking in.  I was curious how it's coming with Miner Edge and rigs with new chips?

Any updates?

Best regards

David

I like that it's water cooled. Interested.
Just caught this thread. Per the requested wish list re: water/fluid cooling. Just make sure the setup can take real-world cooling system pressures. Preferably say 50 psi or more.

Why? So the end user can implement a reliable system using a line powered industrial pump(s) and fans on the radiator(s). The 12-24vDC pumps & reservoirs folks seem to want to use may work for individual miners but.... put a rack full of them together and then one big central system is called for. Make them able to be plugged into a large dry-chiller system or other heat removal sink (possibly a spa?) and you have a winner.

Hate to say it but I doubt this company is still around, the address listed on their website is a UPS Store location and the #302 is the mailbox number.

Just Google the address "2541 S IH-35, STE 200 #302 Round Rock TX, 78664-7357" and you'll see the 3rd entry is a UPS Store.

Ah yes, I remember something to do with rocker box chips wish were Spondoolies kit.

Such a shame as it looked like really good gear, I suppose they could of still gone over to Bitfury chips but after doing all that R+D on the SPT chips then effectively having to bin it and start again I suppose the money just ran out Sad

I think there was just not the demand for it.  A lot of asic data center's are not like standard data center's where you need nice rack mounted device.  Yes they are really nice ... but a lot of asic data center's are going to be shelf's where you can set say a S9 and PSU right on it.   So they are trying to make a premium product, so taking some other company's chip and doing it with that.    With that business model I don't see it happening as what are chances they can buy chip's make a miner and do it with competitive pricing?

So a neat idea but likely something that will remain prototype I don't think they will find the chips currently.  And even if they do I still see price as premium product which means money and less chance of ROI.
