Looks like something is going on:

https://blockchain.info/address/16V3hoVfbQmpQQpCSkAirjVHGfSFoDFSbW

Lots of single satoshis being sent to lots of addresses.

The tag clearly says "BtcSmart - Multiply your money" and yet you link that to AM? Are you really that stupid or do you just think everyone else here is?

And what happens if gen4 misses efficiency specs like gen3 did?  ASICMINER is dead in the water.

If AM miss the specs but the chip is still competitive then there won't be a problem. If gen 4 fails to be competitive though then yeah, AM is pretty much dead in the water.

People were saying the same about gen 3 a few hundred pages back.

We're obviously receiving 10 BTC every 58 hours now in the mining address. Combined with the recent difficulty change this perfectly accounts for the 270 TH/s on BTCGuild. I don't know if lophie even reads my posts, or just skims them over and picks out some figures and combines them arbitrarily, but this just adds up perfectly Smiley. I also just can hope that we've got mining income from other sources, since this is very meager. My bets are on gen 4 as of now.

And what happens if gen4 misses efficiency specs like gen3 did?  ASICMINER is dead in the water.

Three strikes and you are out. Gen2, Gen3 (which I haven't thrown the towel in on just yet), and then Gen4 which the company believes it can deploy by years end. One dark winter for AM was brutal enough, another would do the company in. We will not have to wait much longer to find out how this story concludes, and Fried Cat could still surprise us with Gen3.
If gen4 is out, it will be a very long summer afterwards.

So what? Gen 3 may not be as efficient as some other chips, but it's certainly competitive based on price and is certainly not a complete disaster. So, I'm not sure what point are you actually trying to make. AM Tubes actually have a pretty good value (a combination of efficiency and cost) per volume despite BE200 not being the most efficient ASIC. The price and size offset the efficiency.

Hi Guys

My Findings regarding mining addresses:
.......

I know that people will bash me, but I will still state my view. Usually on this forum (especially in the Hardware section) people that come and give any kind of information on their first/firsts posts is usually frowned upon, yet here it's the other way around. I'm not saying anything else and I can't wait to see how will this develop.

I am always suspicious of those users.
The optimist says it was someone in-the-know who was trying to share positive news without really giving anything away.
The pessimist says it was some dick just messing with us - and created a new account so we won't kill them when we find what they said untrue.

What about actually reading what he had to say and drawing your own conclusions?

He never claimed any insider info, he simply pointed out that there is a correlation between those two addresses which anyone can verify via the blockchain.

Can anyone give info on which of AM's chips are in current mining hardware from hardware partners (namely RockMiner)?

Based on the information provided the gen4 is coming along according to schedule. There will be some time span in which it will be evaluated. However, to put things in perspective any new chips will not move the profit margins too much. Profit margins are mainly a function of BTC price, network power and average upkeep costs. The tech has moved quickly in the last 2 years and is hitting Moore's barrier pretty hard. Main profits will likely come from innovative ways to reduce capex and opex, which not necessarily requires the latest chips.

I really don't see why there is such concern for Gen4. From Jutarul's statement it appears the current concerns are with the size of the network, the cost of maintaining what they presently have or will have and the price of BTC.

Whether gen 4 is good or bad, large quantities of chips will be produced regardless in order to cover the costs. As for which of AM's chips are in current hardware, BE200 is in all of them as that's the only chip they're currently making and selling. I don't think that was what you meant to ask though as the answer was simply too obvious. Did you want to know what hardware is BE200 based?

Yep - although looking again at RockMiner's timeline, I'm guessing they're all the same chip.  Gen3 (BE200) or earlier?  For everything they have?
