Any more info about standalone mining algos/estimated hashrate? I'm thinking about selling most/all of my GPUs so I'm hoping I'll be able to mine with these still.

Hi all, So basically, Not sure what to buy. have abuild of 11x RX 560 2gb CN normal (i never mine core intense algo)
Another rig is Cryptonight heavy with Rx 580 8gb High end cards (8 cards)....
I'm intersted in CN normal/Heavy and Maybe Ethereum...
How many CLE101 are sufficient for most of the bonuses to apply.
Is the 215 (not the + variant) worth it, the double memory?
So Basically those cards aren't Card based but more of IO (hash amount based?) so that means a single CLE 101 can boost 4x 560 2gb or 2x 570s/580s ... What about CN heavy, thats massive bandwidth here to make 1150 h/s with an 8gb polaris (when compared to VEGAs tiny 1400 h/s in heavy)

Appreciaste any input.
Also, whats wrong with the shipping? One CLE101 cost 75USD to reach Australia (Business class 50 gram item Smiley?) my concerns are all about the feasibility of mining the cost of these things are what you can pay right now for 3-5 Ethereum!

The pricing over at squirrelsresearch is indeed completely absurd for shipping. Right now, i'm still waiting for the solo performances to think about buying a few but in any case I will purchase via a Resend company because of this.

Living in UK i was initially shocked by the minimum shipping prices, when i ordered the CLE-215+ in late July.

My initial thoughts being they are using shipping as additional profits.

But on reflection, I'd rather see this start up company suceed in their endeavours and provide the community with further products and support.

People don't work for free.

Good luck guys. and can't wait for my product in september.

There's an update on Acorns:



This is the first Acorn CLE101 off the PCB production line.
Quote from GPUHoarder a few minutes ago
Quote
Well they’re coming off the line! So we’re at least pretty close to schedule. Heatsinks/fans have to arrive, final assembly, burn in, pack, ship. ...
....Long pole is definitely the heatsinks/fans, which have to come off production and ship in from Asia ~
But having the working boards in-hand instills a lot of confidence in timing....
....Target has always been August 31st. Still looks achievable but short delays can always happen.
I’ll be sure to let anyone (sic) know if we have reason to believe they will.

Questions:

1a) Will either Nest board (2X or 4X) still contribute acceleration if not fully populated with Acorns?

1b) In essence, is the Acorn on a Nest board treated as a shared resource among the GPU's plugged into the USB socket or are they tied to a specific GPU?

1c) Does the Nest board (with Acorns) accelerate GPU's tied to the PCIe buss?

TIA

This is nice to see, not to be a politically correct asshole though but August 31st was never mentioned to us august buyers. It was "end of august" so this was really leveraging the timeline in literal terms. It also more than likely makes september preorders even more lucrative while shafting your first customers on mining time.

Just some thoughts from an early buyer of these. When delays are known post it immediately so we arent wondering why its end of week one September and our acorns are still not delivered.

 I hope the standalone mining of the cle 215+ blows my mind. It was advertised as being stand alone mining vs. The lower spec cheaper acorns , so when i see people ask and the responses the squirrel team gives on its solo mining capability they were less than comforting. Which again was another catch for us early buyers. So i really pray this was a case where you guys are just under promising so you can over deliver. If not then expect major disappointment from 215+ buyers.

If the acorns from august are delivered in September then they are late, buyers bought August expecting August.

I completely agree. Aug 31 is just playing number game. No updates on the CLE 215+ solo mining. No information about SQRL miner a week before the release. Without proper mining pools support (including NiceHash strata) this whole project is not worth anything.

The price for an Artix 7 FPGA with M2 interface is not bad  Wink .
I hope we can buy it soon in the EU.

It was always advertised as a pre-order, shipping late August.  I understand the sentiment - we certainly had hoped late August wouldn’t be quite the very end, but to be honest with the number of issues and supply chain glitches that occurred along the way I am very happy with where we are with progress.

We are very transparent and straight forward as a company - but the updates don’t always get posted here as often as they do in the discord, partially because I don’t prefer arguing with people.

Fair enough, can we get hard numbers on a few algorithms for the 215+ now stand alone. If we are facing delays some info to bide the time would be at least informative.

Interesting that there is no response to (or support for) your post by anyone. People are very "understanding"

originator has said multiple times to join the discord.  I'm in the discord, I've watched and linked videos from SQRL labs in this thread. 

As Seth Estrada said, he didn't want to do testing with prototypes as you don't know if they will be slower or faster than the actual product that gets shipped.

It's a whole new thing and we've never seen companies join together on a common front so join the Discord and be happy  Smiley
