Introducing the newest quiet consumer miner from GekkoScience, the newest addition to the Terminus pod-miner line, the R606.


Finally, that quiet efficient stackable adjustable 60-120W miner we've been looking for since 2014!

This miner, built as an expansion of NewPac tech, is a significant improvement over the previous Terminus R808 with BM1384 ASICs. The R606 is fully-enclosed in an aluminum shell for better air ducting (including better main regulator cooling for high-end stability). Heatsinking is improved for more efficient ASIC cooling, plus the integrated 80mm quiet fan is a standard size easy to replace or upgrade.

The miner features 12 of Bitmain's BM1387 ASICs (as found in the S9) and an adjustable core voltage (from 390mV to 460mV) using a simple push-button interface to step up or down in 10mV increments with internal calibration and a fairly straightforward LED readout. No screwdrivers or meters necessary!


The Terminus needs an external controller running cgminer, with USB connection to the miner. Every Terminus miner has an internally regulated 5V USB power output (2.5A limit) which can be used to power a small controller like a Raspberry Pi. The miner runs on 12V power from either a standard 2.1/5.5mm barrel jack (rated for 8A) or a PCIe 6-pin jack (rated for more than you'll ever need).

Driver support in cgminer is still in development but VH has made a lot of fantastic progress. We have automatic detection of unresponsive ASICs forcing a string reset, which will prevent damage to underperforming chips and recover from "zombie" conditions. ASICBoost is supported and is now enabled by default (with pool support detection), with a user flag to disable it if necessary. BM1387's implementation of ASICBoost not only improves efficiency by roughly 20% but reduces USB traffic by roughly 70% so it's basically essential for hitting the high hashrates.


The "stock" speed is about 750GH with an estimated 8A-draw hashrate around 950GH with ASICBoost enabled. Early device testing has seen Terminus R606 hit speeds in excess of 1.1TH; however, since we do not bin ASICs and the stability of the entire string is dependent on its weakest chip, maximum speeds are not guaranteed. We're still working on acquiring thorough performance statistics using VH's new auto-tune routine, designed to find the peak stable speed of each device, which is another very exciting driver development.

 

Since I know what you guys love, this miner features BLINKY LIGHTS! The rate of blinking is based on the hashrate, scaled against the voltage setting, to approximate stock NewPac timings. The base light color is orange.

And like all GekkoScience products, the Terminus R606 is Made In The USA.

Approximate dimensions: 3.5 x 4.5 x 6 inches.



SALES

So far, at least three resellers are confirmed to stock this machine.

MinerSupply on Amazon.com (forum user Rockmoney)
MineFarmBuy.com (forum user minefarmbuy)
419Mining.com (forum user 419mining)

Limited direct sales are also available; contact kalahn@gekkoscience.com for information.

The first batch is limited to North America only, in case of unforseen warranty, reliability or support issues. Global sales should be available with the second batch.

The Terminus R606 will include a 6ft USB cable. Kit packages will also include a high-quality 8A DC power brick. Resellers may also put together other package-deal offerings, so shop around a bit. Most resellers should have listings go live within the next 24 hours.

Given that this miner is roughly equivalent to six NewPacs with a hub and fan,

Retail Pricing is around $300 for miner, $325 for miner with 8A brick.

The first batch is still in production, though we're mostly only waiting on accessories like power bricks and fan grilles, and should be shipping before the end of April. Production and shipping should be fairly continuous after that point.

Cool, quiet and up to 1TH pod miner, on sale now!

Great to see the "For Sale" thread starting up and obviously the official announcement. Can't wait to get my hands on one, although I will have to wait until the global release  Roll Eyes

Great work from you, VH and the team and for keeping the home mining dream alive for us all  Grin

Power draw is whatever you want it to be (since voltage and frequency are both adjustable) but due to limitations of the internal main regulator it shouldn't go over about 120W. But it can also go under 20W with the right settings.

Edited my post as I totally missed the power figure under the picture  Wink

Really is great to have something like this available. Can't wait until the second batch.

This is going to be a bundle price, when both are in the cart, a discount will be auto applied. Check out the details here: https://www.419mining.com/shop/power-supply/complete-power-bundle/
when run from 120V, this will produce up to 900 watts of power and is compatible with both the GekkoScience Hubs, and the new R606.

Okay I am testing the compacs for the raffle.

I will post back how many work and we can figure a way to do the raffle.

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

Most re-sellers are still in pre-order at this time. As the units roll out, better screenshots, build out photos, updates to cgminer and step-by-step how-to's and support forums will all be coming. I know your excited, we all are. This is all new for us as well.  I have a prototype demo unit but it doesn't function the same as a production unit, I can post a screenshot of that if it helps.

From 419mining

you know, we could include "raffle tickets" with the purchases, if that would help.

Yes  best  way to do it.  Is that way.  I will post this idea on thread.

This seems like best way.

At the moment

I have 8 working compacs to give away
I have a quasi  working 2 pac to give away  this was a silver color heatsink protype model.

We will do a North America raffle  with 6 sticks  if you buy from a north american dealer

We will do a European-Worldwide Raffle  with  maybe 2-3 sticks if you buy from a non north american dealer

419mining  had the idea of giving the ticket with each sale.  Sale must be for a sidehack pod only 1 prize per customer

At North american dealers please pm me if onboard

rockmoney
minefarmbuy

note if I missed a dealer for North america please let me know

in theory

419mining say gives ticket numbers out from 1-999
rockminey gives ticket numbers out from      1000-1999
minefarmbuy gives ticket numbers out from   2000-2999

I do a random generator for each company  and pick 2 from each.

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

I don't think we've been involved in this raffle thing before. How does it all work?

I have promoted  for sidehack gear.  

I do various give aways  for those that purchase his new gear.

Let us say you do 12 sales  of sidehack gear for the first batch.

You would give  each sale of a sidehack pod a number 2000 to 2999  in your case

2000
2001
2002
2003
2004
2005
up to 2012 since you did 12 sales

if you did 100 sales up to 2100

You would tell me    how many  numbers for pod sales you issued  say you do 37 sales  so 2000 to 2037.
It is a bit of labor for your company to make a list of pod buyers and  the raffle number you give to them.

I would do a random number drawing  for 2 prizes  of compacs  which I would mail to the winners.
I think there are three sellers.

minefarmbuy  I would give away 2 sticks
419mining      I would give away 2 sticks
rockmoney     I would give away 2 sticks

I would mail the gear  so not cost to the dealers  or the winners. I only end up getting  info on the winners to keep privacy issues as best as possible.

I would save two sticks for the Euro/worldwide buyers later on.

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

Do you need a Raspberry Pi for this to work?  Or would it work if I plugged it into my windows 10 mining rig which is
currently running 2 vega 64's ?
