I'd be very interested in your experience with the Sophon card(s). I'm waiting for the server solution to be delieverd soon, so I will also know more once that happens.

I have a significant QTY of Sophon SC1 TPUs in deployment for our research customers.
It’s worth noting that the device presents itself to the OS as a Xilinx memory controller with 16GB DDR4.
Bitmain has detailed FP16/32 INT functions available to the Metal API with a theoretical max throughout of 2TFLOPS.

If anyone is interested in getting schedule SSH access to a host with an SC-1, please feel free to PM me.

I watched a Bits Be Trippin' vlog on YouTube a week ago, or so, and he was mining on an AI card - in place of a graphics card - and was getting 90+ MH/s on ETH. Maybe these are for the GPU market?

people who are a bit more silent on this are achieving a factor of at least 3 or 4 on that figure; but dead right, very suitable for mining..

@mindtrip - do you have the SDK/Toolkit available?

I am unable to download it from Bitmain right now.

Have you had any luck or done anything interesting with yours? Wondering as there seems to be no discussion of it anywhere.

@mindtrip and @ gribbliest

So, i don't know if you guys have sophons, but it looks like bytom and the b3 are using the same chips in the sophon GPU cards.

I found what I think is a copy of the b3 firmware that could be ported to run with the sophon cards and their driver.

This is all a bit above me though, wondering if you guys have any thoughts on utilizing the sophon to mine bytom

James, AFAIk, that's the code from the B3 Asic from bitmain which runs using the tensor chips, same chips used in sophon. I'm assuming, at a minimum you can run the same software on the sophon and mine using the sc1 gpus x2 inside. It looks like the b3 makes around 25 bytom a day and i think has 12 chips? so maybe the sophon makes 8 a day with 4? Question is if you can get it to run on the SS1 and have the GPUs work.  Meanwhile I'm still fiddling with facial recognition but dunno wtf i'm doing :/ Would love to monetize this beast besides cpu mining which is not finding blocks still. Best and please update us with any results you have.
