@ yxt: Thanks for posting your p2pool results - it confirms what others have said here. The massive swings in hash rate as well as the spikes in DOA/Rejects is truly abysmal, at some points there are more DOA's than there is good hashes!

@ Bitmain: The S4 is terrible with p2pool. You should change your statement about them being compatible with p2pool until these issues, and others, are fixed.

We will try to connect 1 S4 your way.  It should take at least a few more away before it can be done, but planning to point 1 S4 in about 4-6 hours.

PM you!

Anyone want to try one of these on a ckpool (kano's or my solo pool) and see how they fare? We don't have user selectable diff at the moment but it's just out of interest.

My S4 is also stable at 2 TH/s as well.
What is your pool?

It is solo.ckpool.org

I guess I have my answer?

Just one question in case I skipped it: Has the problem with the "underperformance" of the S4 been solved?

I am aware that the miners works with BTC Guild, but even after installing the posted "firmware" which updates cgminer I still only get ~110GH/s @ghash.io and other pools.
Thank you

I just connected 3 , and they seem to work fine on this end …

This issue is that the S4 can't communicate it's need for higher share difficulty to the pool. Btcguild and ghash both work perfectly fine share difficulty manually set to 2048.

Great. Sounds good, but I suspect it's because our pools' starting diffs are 1024 rather than any intrinsic awesomeness of the pool itself.

Here try these as an experiment. I've set up extra solo pool nodes so the same conditions as the solo.ckpool.org (ie solo mine to your bitcoin address)

First runs diff of 2048:
s4.ckpool.org:3333

Second starts at diff 1 like ghash would:
s4.ckpool.org:3334

Bear in mind that ckpool adjusts diff VERY quickly so it may still work okay.

They shouldn't need to "communicate their need". It just means they're broken for lower diffs presumably because they can't keep up and just constantly overload when sending 15000 shares per second.

In that case then I will take credit for it in the ckpool code itself Smiley Thanks for testing, there is no need to keep those pool nodes online as they're identical to the solo pool just with a different starting diff so I'll be taking them down tomorrow but i'll leave them up in case others want to do similar tests. Note that you shouldn't mine long term on the diff1 node as it's not optimally set up for block finding.

Bitmain, are you planning on resolving these issues for the 2nd batch? I am immensely dissatisfied with my batch 1 miner.

I'll be back in a bit now that's done to go through the last 15 pages or so to check for questions and to gather feedback.

So I worked with the bitmain guys just now on a workaround for the pool diff issue. Hopefully they'll post a fix for you to use. This should allow you to mine at other pools. While the hashrate will appear wrong when you first connect to them it should ramp up slowly to the correct value.

Is it better to mine on a p2pool?  What's the difference from mining at btcguild?

I'm quite sure you could use these on p2pool if you added +1500 to your username per client.

The difficulty issues are firmware related, not batch related and will be fixed shortly.

Ok - this is the worst batch of product I have ever gotten from Bitmain.  What is going on??  So far I have had 3 units with bad PSU's.  (One of them almost caught on fire) All of my settings are factory stock. NO overclocking.  One of the units has the amber "alarm" light on the PSU blinking and one unit has what appears to be asci code on the LCD.  So of 33 units purchased 5 are down.  That's 15 % of my units not running within a few days of implementation.  Bitmain I hope you're reading this and thinking of a resolution......

Contact Bitmain support for replacements.
