Questions are still popping in my mind...

@cablepair:
  • When will you be able to take orders ?
  • Will you offer a warranty on delivery time like the one you gave for the ModMiner Quad ?

@cablepair:
  • do you have an expected power figure ?
  • Will the hardware be p2pool-friendly ?


the prototype board we are testing on is only for development purposes and is not going to be an accurate representation of the power usage of the production device, I can tell you that it will be very energy efficient and certainly more efficient than the ModMiner Quad. I can also tell you that the 27Gh/s we are currently quoting is the minimum to be expected, it is likely to increase with software optimizations.

about p2pool, our software developer (Luke-JR) has not even begun to work on the mining software yet but I will make sure we make this a priority to allow for p2pool compatibility.

As of today we are taking pre-orders for shipment in November/December

If for some reason we cannot ship on time we will certainly offer full refunds to those who request them.

Do you already have asic samples in your hand or are you estimating hash output as well? If you are estimating what is this based on?

I understand, from the kind of connector you use (dc barrel) I suppose you can't go above 150W (and the actual usage is probably much less), so I assume I could use existing power supplies with appropriate adapters. I'd love to be able to purchase a PCI-e or molex to dc barrel connector with the bASIC

there are certain details that I am not going to release just yet, at least until we are done prototyping. All the specific details you could want (and more) will be available in the near future, and don't worry this is going to be an open source project just like the ModMiner Quad, I just need a little more time before we really commit everything to public record.

27Gh/s is not an estimate its based on real testing of a real prototype

and again we are using very basic software at this point, the speed is likely to increase once my software guys get to work on the firmware and mining software

I look forward to more news and am eagerly awaiting more solid details before I plunk down the cash.  It's great that we have a solid competitor to BFL.

Yeah I'm saving up for a third ASIC and glad to have this option which if you pre-order now may ship before a BFL if you pre-ordered now.  With BFL only promising for shipping to start late October for June pre-orders and now being over 7000 pre-orders later.

seeing cablepair and luke-jr being the guys behind, and they seem to be one of the driving forces behind bitcoin in mining regard. well more like jumped on it Smiley

I just wish some hardware would already arrive, with all these bloody preorders >_<

The truth is it just takes time to have these kind of chips made, and then you still have to have the boards assembled. its a lengthy process. I am just happy we finally have a prototype that works that we can move forward with this is something that has been in the works for awhile.

I guess if you have a prototype working you wouldn't mind throwing a quick video up showing it running on a pool.

I will when BFL does the same.

When will you have the details about the modminer upgrade program? I'm sure I am not the only one who recently purchased a Modminer (and am still waiting for it) and would like to make a decision regarding waiting or taking delivery asap.

Hi Tom,

To my knowledge, BFL has never stated that they have a working prototype. You just made a statement that you DO have a working prototype.

If you are going to make such statements, it should be a pretty simple task to make a video showing it working.

Thanks,

Sorry I was not more clear on this, if you have ordered up until 09/01 your modminer quad will be shipped on the next production run which I will have by the end of this week.
If you have not received the unit yet - you can swap your MMQ order for a bASIC order directly.

If you already have a MMQ and wish to trade it in closer to the ship date we can do that as well, I am thinking of issuing a rebate - but I still have not nailed down how much I can afford to give on a trade-in just yet. I am looking into ways to sell refurbished fpga chips at the moment and will get back to you on that.

Pics and video or it didn't happen.

or I have a 20 TH/s ASIC I made last night, cost is 5000 BTC.

it is absolutely ridiculous and asinine to try and bully someone into revealing photos and video of a prototype in a market such as this. I am sure BFL does have a prototype, if they do not have a prototype there is no way in hell they will be shipping anything in November.

I do not know for what reason I would make this up, I have never scammed or done wrong to anyone on this forum ever, I delivered on the ModMiner quad and I will deliver on this, if for whatever reason you think I am making this up please by all means do not buy it. I will not be bullied into doing something I do not feel comfortable doing.
