Really, they could be ANY chip with the identifications sanded off.

Or just 54 heatspreaders with no chips.  cost about $26. Smiley

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

Your sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion has not helped you conjure up the absent BFL singles, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the Rigbox power specs...


If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Just in case anybody's interested in some E-Mail dialogue I had with Sonny at BFL:

Quote from: My E-Mail to BFL on Jan. 24th
Hello,

I'm writing to inquire about two things.

First, can you give me a rough guesstimate of when the Rig Box might be available for shipping?  Even something as vague as "at least 12 more months" or "in 1 to 6 months" would be helpful.  More specific would be even better.  I would like to know so I can have a better idea of when I might need to make funds available to purchase one.

Second, I would just like to have a clue as to whether there's any hope that I'd be able to afford a SuperComputer when it becomes available, depending on its capabilities, of course.  Can you tell me whether it's likely to be closer to the $100,000 mark or the $1,000,000 mark?


Quote from: BFL's Response on Jan 30th
We are awaiting the completion of our first production run of Singles before we focus on the Rig Box product.  Until then, I can't give you an accurate time estimate.  Once we're through our current tasks, we will make public announcement with timing expectations and accept orders for the Rig Box.

With regards to the SuperComputer product, that is too far away to even speculate on.

Kind regards,
Sonny K
BF Labs Inc.

I'm surprised that they can't even give me a guesstimate on the rig box when all I asked for was a vague answer.  I'd have to see strong evidence that the rig box performs as well as they claim before risking that amount of money on equipment for BTC mining, not that I even have it other than through a line of credit.

Likewise, not that I have $100k or $1 million, but I was hoping to get something out of them about the Super Computer since their website says, "If you would like more information about this institutional grade system, please contact us with your inquiry."  I didn't think an answer on whether it's closer to $100k or $1 million would require speculation.

They've given me more cause for doubt, but I'm also still hopeful that they're just slow at production and reluctant to answer questions.  Time will tell.

I imagine they've learned their lesson with regards to giving out information that may change in the future, and cause geekdom itself to implode on this forum.  Smart move Smiley

No no, you got it backwards. The Empire is about GPUs, its the silly Jedis obsessing over FPGAs. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age my ass.

I am really, REALLY glad I spent my cash on a bunch of 5970's back in November rather than throw down for a bunch of the bitforce.  Those cards are now nearly paid for.  Much better choice, it retrospect.

So what's the deal? You guys have your units yet? Tracking info? Shipping date, even?

Goddamn...apparently, their assembly ninja is slow as fuck.

I believe it's referred to as "testing".   It's usually a good idea before you send out a product.   

Got your order in yet?  You must have as you're so concerned about delivery Smiley
