We have recently released a new video demonstrating a working FGPA, as well as additional GoldStrike1 ASIC chip details.

To watch the video and read the full release, please head to http://cointerra.com/cointerra-demonstrates-working-fpga-releases-additional-chip-details/ .


If you can't wait and just want the GoldStrike ASIC specs, here they are!

Global Foundries: 28nm HPP process.Clock-speed: 1.4 GHz (min binning speed) to 2 GHz (max binning speed)

Die size: 3 dies of 10x10 mm for a total of 300 sqmm.

Hash rate: 504 GH/s to 720 GH/s based on binning speed

Hashes per sq mm: 1.68 GH/s/mm2 to 2.4 GH/s/mm2

Power consumption: <0.6 watts/GH/s (@ 0.765 volts)

Architecture: pipelined unrolled hashing units

Tape-out due: 1st week of October

System cooling:  Custom designed liquid cooling by CoolIT Systems capable of 400 watts per chip, though the chip will not exceed 300 watts in normal operating condition. incorporating  3x high speed 12cm fans with 4U sized radiator at the back.  System box was recently upgraded from 2u to 4u to allow for larger fans and radiator to provide significant increase in cooling capacity and reduced fan noise  - 12cm fans are much quieter than 9cm fans.

Logistics: By design, all suppliers (excluding ASIC), including PCB design, board and box assembly provided locally in Austin to reduce shipping delays of parts between locations and eliminate delays due to logistics or customs.

Significant payments made to fab to expedite process from usual 90+ days to 65 days.

Chips expected back, early December.

Systems expected to begin shipping to customers, Mid December.

Thank you for sharing this video.

I for one am pleased to see this hands on demonstration showing the team behind the Cointerra name in action.
This progress video helps instill confidence on them realistically hitting their December 2013 shipping target.

Well that is as long as everything goes according to plan. Smiley

going from a working FPGA to an ASIC isnt a simple task.....    I'd save the bragging for when you have a functional prototype.....


just my 2 cents
