maybe the world's first public FPGA mining cluster system? or maybe the largest now?

6X Icarus mining borad (12X SX6SLX150) @ 360M/board. 2.16GH/s -peak/total.

power consuming: 115W (MAX) on the wall.

epic!

how much did you pay?

They are self manufactured.

Now if only we could buy these boards for $100 a piece... I'd buy 100.

What was the cost of manufacturing them (including and excluding time which also has value)?

far too little in my eyes, even the two LX150 are 300$. a six-layer pcb isn't cheap either, so i would add another 200$

Looks great ngzhang! Can't wait to hear the price.

catfish: to compare to ztex, our dual FPGA boards are $560 each, or $280 per FPGA. His boards are $460 each with one FPGA. That's a big difference, eh?

It really just comes down to the design of the board that you prefer, though. I think all these boards look awesome, and it's great that people have some options, depending on their needs!

Well no it all comes down to MH/$.  While you may have 2 FPGA you are getting what 240MH/s combined.  
Ztek gets 190MH on a single FPGA.

Also he offers significant bulk pricing.  I wish he had a 4x FPGA design though.  Building a 10GH cluster with 50 boards is kinda repetitive.  Anyone looking to buy FPGA is looking to buy big.  Whoever make the highest capacity board w/ lowest price per MH will be the one who gets the lions share of the business.

Good luck to everyone.  May the best capitalist win.

True, but like I said before, that isn't the hardware that's giving the higher hashrates. I'm confident that it's just a matter of time before we get similar hashrates on our board. Unfortunately, our focus these past weeks is on getting the hardware built instead of on code. That should change soon.

As for bulk pricing, we've already provided bulk quotes to inquiring minds via PM, but I'll publish a price scale very soon.

EDIT: Also, even if we assume that the X6500 will never reach higher than 250 MH/s, we still have the ztex board beat in $/MH, in small quantities at least:

X6500: $580 / 250MH/s = $2.32/MH (with early payment discount, it's $2.24/MH)
ZTEX: $460 / 190 MH/s = $2.42/MH

If you're not so pessimistic, and assume that we will reach the same hashrate, that would be 380 MH/s, or $1.52/MH.

Sorry for the off-topic! I hope to make an on-topic post here very soon, when I get a few more X6500 boards here. Smiley

Yeah like I said may the best capitalist win.  I hope you can improve the throughput that would only make your product superior.  Still on an investment basis that isn't a risk I am willing to consider.  I am interested in the design that has lowest cost per MH based on a $4000 or $10,000 investment.  If that is your board then I am interested.

Do you have a link for Ztek?

Sorry, off topic too.

X6500: $580 / 250MH/s = $2.32/MH (with early payment discount, it's $2.24/MH)
ZTEX: $460 / 190 MH/s = $2.42/MH

You forgot to mention that there are volume discounts, see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=49180.0, e.g.:

5 x UFM-1.15x:  $2100 /  950 MH/s = $2.21/MH
10 x UFM-1.15x:  $3900 /  1900 MH/s = $2.05/MH
25 x UFM-1.15x:  $9000 /  4750 MH/s = $1.89/MH

Summary: our bulk prices are yet to be published. But, even our single quantity is better than your 100 if you optimistically assume we will get close to the performance you are getting eventually: $1.53/MH at 380 MH/s.
