This doesn't seem too far-fetched actually. I heard some rumors about it being a dual Spartan6-LX150 board, bitstream-compatible with Icarus, running 250-300MH/s per FPGA.
Which would actually be great news for all current Icarus owners...

Judging by the interest in Lancelot on these forums, the first batch from the new design better have a large number of boards, they're gonna sell like hot cakes Tongue.

Solution: the first batch (call it batch zero) goes to Xiangfu and me since we are really close Tongue
(after debugging we send them back to you to refurbish)

OK , and l have to charge you 999$ pre board for the refurbish cost. you know, labor cost is rising in China at the moment.  Sad

We must know... Don't make us beg. ;p

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

The location WHERE you sell them is also of public interest, because transportation costs could be significant.
If you are located in Thailand, I am interested.

I'm in the US. I was looking for 210 btc shipped to US, but I don't know what the demand is for this so I'm willing to negotiate.

Hmm, yeah, it's a bit hard to value the Icarus boards now that the new Lancelot boards are about to be released.

Also may I ask why you are selling them? Looking to replace them with BFL Singles?

Good luck selling your FPGAs. It's what I have been saying ALL along but some of you don't listen.

Once the new generation like Lancelot comes out then your Icarus becomes useless but now since mining is profitable it is OK but good luck selling Cheesy

If a new generation of fpga's would make the old ones useless, wouldn't the new generation gpu's the old ones useless?

Maybe you can explain why Icarus becomes useless ? It is bitstream compatible to Lancelot and uses the same fpga's.
