- A super ECO mode which further undervolts and underclocks the Apollos for folks with high electricity costs and in readiness for the Litecoin halving in August to squeeze the efficiency. Although I hope the price doubles to compensate.

You can always experiment with this on your own. Just go to custom settings and start lowering frequency/voltage.

You can't "break" anything when undervolting/underclocking. The ASIC chips will just produce a lot of HW errors if you undervolt too far. Things only get dangerous when you start over-volting.

FYI Eco mode defaults are ~740mV voltage and 600MHZ clocks. So there is still plenty of headroom to go even more efficient. I think the best i have gotten is ~ .9 W/MH at around 80-90MH


could you  add

to this

Eco default =  740 mv  600 mhz
Balanced default = ?
Turbo default = ?


I went in and set

735.3 mv and freq 598

my errors are 0.4%

my hash is 98

I'm running my newest Apollo now, I used the image in the original post to flash an SD card, it works, I'm mining. However, it's v0.0.1 in the dashboard, whereas on my first Apollo it's v0.0.2 ... where's the latest image available at?

That worked thanks, not sure why I kept thinking it was apollo_final.img.zip showing up there.

Yea it’s sold out, bitshopper.de in Europe might have a few units left.

I’ll be starting batch 2 next month.

Perhaps a novice question, but in the past couple of weeks my Apollos haven't been producing the same 24 hours rewards at litecoinpool - it's dropped. Please tell me it's not because of anything with the Apollos. The only change I've noticed is the difficulty has gone up from 8,917,884 to 10,360,375. Am I right to conclude "difficulty" = more work required of the Apollos and therefore less payout in a given 24 hour period?

Hey - like I said, I'm a novice but confirmation would be nice.

Yeah difficulty has gone up, but check the litecoinpool account settings to ensure you're still getting shares, and the reward is still increasing; it should be shares * pps rate. It probably is going up slower, because the pps rate has changed, yet your hash rate is the same (or similar).

Your still getting the same amount but due to the difficulty level going up and the PPS rate changes with the difficulty level but overall $ wise its the same.

Yes more miners have joined the network, therefore difficulty has gone up, and your rewards go down the same percentage if your hash-rate stays the same. Nothing wrong with your Apollos, this is how most block chains are designed to run.

Yes, it will be an optional add-on.

I've had my Apollo for about 3 months now and love it. I started with Eco mode, then moved to Balanced mode and finally to Turbo mode. Temps were all good in the three modes except in Turbo, the miner temp raises to over 70c. I was cautious when I first started with Turbo and watched temps closely. After I felt confident things were good, I've left it mining numerous sites using Turbo. I'm currently mining at ProHashing and noticed that my hash rate is considerably less than 140MH/s. In fact I was sometimes averaging 115MH's on Turbo over a 2 hour span. Yesterday I dropped back to Balanced mode. I've watched the hash rate on ProHashing and the hash rate is better than when I use Turbo. In fact, most of the time they calculate it between 130 and 135 MH/s with a few jumps up to 140MH. I'm not sure why Balanced works better than Turbo on that site but I'm happy with the results and I'm very happy with the Apollo.

Thanks jstefanop for your fine work in building the futurebit miners. I'm looking forward to the next batch of Apollos.

Do you have a high error rate under Turbo? You should be averaging around 135 on turbo and 125 on balanced. If your error% is really high you might need to turn up the voltage manually under turbo.

Great thank you so much jstefanop for all the work !
Here is a feature request for next update :

For example, I'd like to have the possibility to set the miner on balanced mode from 07:00PM to 07:00 AM and on another mode for another amount of time set in hours.

What do you think ?

This would be very nice... By night (cheaper electricity) FULL MODE, by day ECO mode... Please jstefanop, think about it...

People (like me) with high electricity prices need this. And this will be a new feature no other ASIC has (pro miners don't need this, but hobby/home miners need it). Sure you are trying to build a "different miner" Wink.

Another small request for Apollo batch 2... What about a on/off switch, just like Baikal mini miner has?. Again, not needed for proffesionals, but I will like to have this option. Maybe not too expensive to add.

I know your are too busy developing batch 2 and software updates, and my requests are not very important. Just to let you know Wink
