UPDATE:

We achieved 41Mh/s at 225W of power usage on Lyra2z today. The board operated for approximately 20 minutes before shutdown occurred. As reported by whitefire and others, the BMC disables the board when temperature exceeds configured shutdown temperatures. We were operating on a completely unmodified VCU-1525; it has no upgraded cooling or components like the BCU-1525 will have. We are confident enough in the hashrate now to report 40Mh/s as the shipped hashrate for lyra2z. There is still some room for some improvement and we may be able to achieve up to 60Mh/s.


WOW! These figures bring a smile on my face Smiley

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

how many FPGAs Lyra2z can handle before the earnings drop? I remember there was a table on Zetheron website but I can't find it ...

According to whattomine.com the total Lyra2z hashrate is around 600 Gh/s. 5000 units at 60 Mh/s would add ~300 GH/s so this could reduce earnings per Mh/s by 30-40%.

Obviously it's not that simple. GPU miners might start to leave if profitability drops, coins might fork, etc.

I am looking to buy around 8 FPGA cards for mining, does anyone have good advise? I do not have the mining software for it so I will need a full solution not just the cards.

thank you all

When are you releasing the BitStream?

Once the cards start shipping. Possibly sooner for people who have VCU-1525 units.

In addition to the refund units we still have one large mine who ordered 665 boards and never paid for them. If you didn't get a chance to purchase in the first round there will be a large number of units available. I'll set the maximum order qty at 4 to give everyone a chance to purchase enough for chaining.

In other news, we're still hard at work on bitstreams. We've had some trouble with the lyra2z but we're slowly moving forward. We received some positive results this week indicating it may be possible to operate the engine as fast as 350mhz without any overclock. This would work out to a hashrate around 35Mh/s on lyra2z (8,8,8 -- not zcoin). We've also begun work on the PHI2 engine. Based on our lyra2z work it appears we should be able to achieve hashrates in the 100-150MH/s range.

Is Xilinx to ship partial BCUs, but do you know how many concrete it will be?

Also, are shipments given priority in the order number?

If I want for a refund from where can I apply?

Also, in case of refund in crypto, will it be refunded at the current price? Wink Wink Wink

1) We should have more information soon; it's still unclear at this point.
2) I discussed this briefly with David. We could fulfill all the small orders (1-8 units) and then some. We were also discussing a lottery. It's a moot point until we know if we will receive partial fulfillment.
3) If you ordered from fpga.land you can send an email to sales@fpga.land to request a refund if you wish.
4) All orders are in USD. If you request a crypto refund you will be sent crypto at USD conversion rate at the time of the refund. (Yes)






it s been more than 2 weeks since I contacted you to get a refund of 2 VCU 1525 because the delivery time is too long and I still have nothing. When will you refund?

We've been processing refunds as fast as we can. We do have a large volume of them and as a group buy we did send all funds to Xilinx. We have a purchase for crypto pending that will be used to refund all of the crypto orders and bank orders who have requested crypto refund.

I'm interested in buying 1 unit of this FPGA Cryptominer card and found all buying options ran dry now, seeing  https://fpga.land/.

How can I buy it from you? (This is from South Korea.)  Is it still valid unit now or better, newer unit on the way soon?
(I have no cryptocurrencies yet.)


Thanks in advance.

Yeah just put yourselves on the waiting list if you are interested.  I cancelled one, still waiting for refund but it will come.

There are two different FPGAs available for mining purpose:
BCU-1525 and CVP-13

Update:

Our pre-production BCU-1525 units shipped from Xilinx today. Volume production to follow; Current expectations are to start shipping volume units in early Oct. Additional shipping updates expected to follow once we have more information on exact shipping dates. We're hopeful we'll be able to ship all orders before the end of October.

I just sold a dell c4130 on ebay yesterday.  I wish I would have loaned it to you for testing instead.  It gets as loud as a banshee in heat but it would keep your card(s) cool indefinitely while you tested!

I'm happy for you, but when do you expect to pay me back? You changed the status of my order but I received nothing from you.

69% of crypto refunds have been sent out. 50% of wire / check refunds have been sent out. Dimouze, you're 5th on the list.

UPDATE:

I'm currently operating our lyra2z design with 75W power consumption for 40Mh/s at 0.785v and No bad shares. It looks like we should be able to push this up to 70-80Mh/s (But will require a fair bit of work on our end, timeline unknown). In addition, I've noticed that a 7-8c decrease in inductor temperature (at 60-90c temperature ranges) translates to roughly a 5% decrease in power consumption. The colder the fpga and surrounding components are the less power they use and the harder you can push them. Novec, chilled water loops, and other exotic cooling are becoming more interesting by the day.
