It will be interesting how this will make me split up my puny 9x1060 rig. 3 rigs with 3 cards (directly on MB) + acorn each I guess, since risers does not give enough bandwidth.
"the SQRL Dual M.2 + USB-Based PCIe Riser Host Board (Coming Soon)" sounds interesting?

The classic 12GPU rig build appears to be different with the Acorn in the mix.

For those of you who are familiar with the Octominer board, would the "Acorn CLE 101" work on this board? (Along side RX580's/Vega 56 on cryptonight v1).

The main goal is to reduce power consumption.

I think the board uses an older M.2 slot but its hard to find info on the specifics.

This might be an obvious answer for some, but I am not the most technical person. Thanks Smiley

good info (to start with anyway).

at least i can start basic planning. looks like iwill have to bring my old z97 miner board out of retirement and move a couple cards from the onda b250 d8p (with its pcie x1 slots) over to take advantage of the z97s pcie x4/x8 slots. the bcu1525 will also go into the z97 board, so the z97 would have come out anyway.

This looks like a great project.  However a little daunting to sort out what will be needed to support the best configuration.  All my gpu rigs are older configurations so this would require a complete retool to optimize for this.  I looked that the web site and the FAQ with the good, better, best configs, and the recommended hardware has yet to be spelled out. 

So does it mean you buy 1080ti's for this rig, or what is going to give you the best bang for your buck?  Then the mobo support and getting the best acorn to gpu mix for optimum performance.  Looking forward to the updates.  Just scratching my head trying to figure out the specifics we should have in place for the acorn to give us the biggest cost benefit ratios.

gpuhoarder, thanks for all the hard work you are putting into this.

Good starting point but I am hoping to see how Acorn (different models) is going to impact the performance of GTX1080Ti with ETHlargement pill (53.5 MHs). Also, PayPal or Crypto payment options is the must, for me (I have enough of international bank transfers - I live in Canada).

This... looks amazing! I do have my doubts, considering the number of scams out there. Hopefully you will take escrow BTC payments or at least PayPal.  Wink

Currently, they accept ACH/wire and crypto. PayPal took themselves out of the picture - claiming chargebacks (PayPal does not like crypto). Squirrels is working on other payment options. I don't think forum escrow will be one, though.

Just looked at the Blackbox and that looks pretty slick.  Is that the ultimate config to get the empty chassis and then just keep adding Acorn and FPGA boards and expand in that chassis?  Not sure how doable that is and would love some feedback on that idea.

I just realized that the biggest problem to incorporate Acorn into existing rigs is this:

"At launch, Acorn will work exclusivity with SQRL Miner. We'll provide an SDK and API documentation later this Fall for other miners to integrate Acorn support." I am not sure how this miner is going to to work with various pools or NiceHash, for instance.

Also, the longer I look at options the more confused I am getting about how Acorn (any model) is going to improve my ethash mining for GTX1080Ti with ETHlargement pill (53.5 MHs).
Could I please, get advice on this? Simply put, I am mostly interested in Ether mining with high end GPUs

the answer is there is no protection here.

I will take some.
I will offer assistance to op at no charge.
If op needs a pre order run I will do it at no fees for me.
I no longer do escrow but for this project I offer free escrow other then the tx fee.
At op do we need intel CPUs ?
Are higher end CPUs better?

Can you clarify what you’re offering?
Higher end CPUs can be interesting, but system memory matters more if you’re trying to use the accelerator with CPU***

as free escrow service is pretty much as  clear as possible.
And the render is pretty but still no real proof of concept.

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

It isn’t. It is not going to help you in a profitable way (other than maybe operating costs). You are looking for the wrong solution. Smiley

Saying it again - the same thing I said in the first post. ETH is supported but not the target. You will not see the 30 MH gain potential on ETH in the majority of cases. You can see it on Lyra2Rev2, X16r, and other algorithms where 30MH is a lot more.

I did that and they have been around a longer time.

I am still trying to be sure the two are linked.

I prefer to not have to do this but such is crypto mining.

Airsquirrels checks out at 100 on webutation.net

And most ratings are at 100

So I am a lot more happy with airsquirrels.com

It’s a picture - touched up because of production PCB color and to remove FPGA specific info,  but an actual picture Smiley

I know you’re trying to watch out for everyone here, and it is appreciated.

It is frustrating to constantly be thrown up as some kind of back alley deal man by you, as someone who has run a multi-million dollar company for coming up on 10 years, who has gone on camera, met people in the group in person, shown them all our hardware and labs, taken phone calls, posted our address and contact info, been vouched for by OhGodAGirl/OhGodACompany, amongst many other things to show how legitimate and serious we are in this space. I suppose the joint press release with Xilinx soon won’t help you either.

We have over 40 people in house and 75 people working directly with us on this specific project. I appreciate your offer of escrow, and presales, but we are an established company - we don’t really need someone else to run our store for us. In addition, orders pay for production and production of this many things has to be scheduled and forecast far in advance. We already have millions of our own dollars  out on this project to source all the components that are nearly impossible to procure right now.

The Acorn  exists, it has been tested and verification made of claims. I’m not going to go above and beyond trying to “sell” every skeptic for preorders. Skeptics will be fine once thousands of people have these in their hands. I’ve been very clear on how it works, other devs can easily run the numbers and simulate or confirm.

What doesn’t exist?

1. Production volumes of product - we need preorder volumes to know how many to fully ramp, though slots are scheduled and initial volumes in. A few hundred are being produced for end of July for 3rd party dev and reviewer testing - these are expensive, north of $400 in small batch.

2. Full implementations of the miner UI,  designed but needs added to our underlying miner core.

3. Fully tuned implementations for future supported algorithms we discuss.

4. Production ready mining software, driver installation, and the software polish to make it plug and play.

5. Final production heatsinks, due to ongoing work to have the best possible thermal management and therefore performance. We already have the largest power supply I know of for these chips.

What does exist?

1. A dozen or so development verification devices, we hand build a few more here and there.

2. All the parts and components excluding bare PCBs to build 10k+ of these, to ensure initial production ramp is smooth.

3. Locked in supply chain and manufacturing timeslots for upcoming production.

4. The base SQRL Miner core as well as verification and testing tools with a developer UI.

5. Initial heatsinks that work but could still be improved.

Higher end CPUs can be interesting, but system memory matters more if you’re trying to use the accelerator with CPU***

as free escrow service is pretty much as  clear as possible.
And the render is pretty but still no real proof of concept.


It’s a picture - touched up because of production PCB color and to remove FPGA specific info,  but an actual picture Smiley

I know you’re trying to watch out for everyone here, and it is appreciated.

It is frustrating to constantly be thrown up as some kind of back alley deal man by you, as someone who has run a multi-million dollar company for coming up on 10 years, who has gone on camera, met people in the group in person, shown them all our hardware and labs, taken phone calls, posted our address and contact info, been vouched for by OhGodAGirl/OhGodACompany, amongst many other things to show how legitimate and serious we are in this space. I suppose the joint press release with Xilinx soon won’t help you either.

We have over 40 people in house and 75 people working directly with us on this specific project. I appreciate your offer of escrow, and presales, but we are an established company - we don’t really need someone else to run our store for us. In addition, orders pay for production and production of this many things has to be scheduled and forecast far in advance. We already have millions of our own dollars  out on this project to source all the components that are nearly impossible to procure right now.

The Acorn  exists, it has been tested and verification made of claims. I’m not going to go above and beyond trying to “sell” every skeptic for preorders. Skeptics will be fine once thousands of people have these in their hands. I’ve been very clear on how it works, other devs can easily run the numbers and simulate or confirm.

What doesn’t exist?

1. Production volumes of product - we need preorder volumes to know how many to fully ramp, though slots are scheduled and initial volumes in. A few hundred are being produced for end of July for 3rd party dev and reviewer testing - these are expensive, north of $400 in small batch.

2. Full implementations of the miner UI,  designed but needs added to our underlying miner core.

3. Fully tuned implementations for future supported algorithms we discuss.

4. Production ready mining software, driver installation, and the software polish to make it plug and play.

5. Final production heatsinks, due to ongoing work to have the best possible thermal management and therefore performance. We already have the largest power supply I know of for these chips.

What does exist?

1. A dozen or so development verification devices, we hand build a few more here and there.

2. All the parts and components excluding bare PCBs to build 10k+ of these, to ensure initial production ramp is smooth.

3. Locked in supply chain and manufacturing timeslots for upcoming production.

4. The base SQRL Miner core as well as verification and testing tools with a developer UI.

5. Initial heatsinks that work but could still be improved.




Good I finally got a direct reply for my concerns.

My research has shown airsquirrels.com to be a fully legit company.

I would have zero issues using airsquirrels.com

I have heard you on YouTube say you are a subset of airsquirrels.com

And all I am looking for is the airsquirrels.com  website to show it is the parent company of squirrelsresearch.com

https://store.airsquirrels.com/

takes cc and paypal and has been in business for years

The founders of Squirrels LLC joined forces in 2008 to form a company called Napkin Studio. Together, they released one of the first 100 apps in the App Store. Napkin Studio created several successful apps and completed contract work for partners from coast to coast.

The company took a new direction in 2012 when it released two of the first screen-mirroring apps – Reflector and AirParrot -- into a large untapped market. The apps were a hit, and Napkin Studio became Squirrels LLC as the founders and employees focused their efforts on wireless collaboration and presentation technology.

I just realized that the biggest problem to incorporate Acorn into existing rigs is this:

"At launch, Acorn will work exclusivity with SQRL Miner. We'll provide an SDK and API documentation later this Fall for other miners to integrate Acorn support." I am not sure how this miner is going to to work with various pools or NiceHash, for instance.

Also, the longer I look at options the more confused I am getting about how Acorn (any model) is going to improve my ethash mining for GTX1080Ti with ETHlargement pill (53.5 MHs).
Could I please, get advice on this? Simply put, I am mostly interested in Ether mining with high end GPUs

It isn’t. It is not going to help you in a profitable way (other than maybe operating costs). You are looking for the wrong solution. Smiley

Saying it again - the same thing I said in the first post. ETH is supported but not the target. You will not see the 30 MH gain potential on ETH in the majority of cases. You can see it on Lyra2Rev2, X16r, and other algorithms where 30MH is a lot more.

Thank you very much for the clarification, GPUHoarder. Very much appreciated.
As it was said before, Acorn (any model) is not going to help much with ethash or CryptoNight. In reality, in case of someone only mining Ether it may be cheaper in a long run (and less hassle free) to add another GPU (especially with the low cost of electricity) than to get an Acorn. I like the miner though and I am going to get a CLE-215+ and a couple of CLE-101 to play with

and this is exact what is my problem  and why I have been posting here over and over and over and over


this proves squirrelsresearch.com  claims to belong to airsquirrels.com


but it does not prove airsquirrels.com  acknowledged that is true.

squirrelsresearch.com  is the company I question  They claim this




they came to exist this year 2018
the op gpuhoarder started this year 2018

the good legit company   airsquirrels.com

is much older   like 2010 or something.


and this quote from their website talks about  stuff that happened years ago.

dates like 2008 or 2012
