Yes there are other companies that are currently shipping devices with efficiency equal or better than 0.75W/G.

Ok. Which companies? What are the products? How much do they cost?

I only corrected a statement. I'm not getting paid to offer you search services. Feel free to find out by yourself.

RoadStress is right. Also, there is a teapot somewhere between Earth and Mars orbiting the sun. I offer no proof to back up either of these statements, but feel free to find out their veracity by yourself.

I guess that he is just paid to be a troll.  Must be nice in a way.

He's not paid to troll, he's paid to sell used cars (overpriced hardware) and damage SPtech's reputation in the process.

Even though he's only here to further instigate his personal crusade against AM he is not wrong in this case.

Here's what's currently available or will be soon:

Shipped but no longer available for order:

- KNC Neptune = 0.55 w/gh @ $2/gh (shipped from july-august)
- SP30 = 0.67 w/gh @ ~$0.8 (shipped last day of august)

In stock:

- None below 1w/gh.

Preorders:

- Bitmain S3+ = 0.77 w/gh @ ~$0.6/gh
- AM Prisma = 0.75 w/gh @ $0.45/gh (October)
- A1 clones = 0.7 w/gh @ $0.65/gh (October)
- Avalon4 = 0.7 w/gh @ $0.55/gh (October)
- SP20 = 0.65 w/gh* @ $0.82/gh (October 31st)
- SP35 = 0.58 w/gh* @ $0.7/gh (November 31st)

* chips not tested and probably inaccurate.
** $/gh is calculated using $400/btc.

Maybe this clause: "currently shipping" confused you?

Now for the painful truth...no matter who you buy from none of it makes you a profit.  Buying any mining gear at retail prices even with free power you lose.

IOW mining is done, time to unplug the equipment, put it on the shelf, and forget about it.  Come to think of it, It's always been this way except for a few suddenly brief periods of huge price rises in BTC and early on whenever a new generation of mining tech was invented for the those first in line. Yet, the network hashrate just keeps going up no matter what. What the hell are we doing?  Huh

Bitcoiners don't seem to be interested in making money, just basking in the warm, transcendent buzz of mining gear.  It must be their cold. dark hearts that drive them to it like moths to a flame.

Several very pertinent posts - just above.

Every period has its own opportunities even for the 'small guy'. The trick is to spot them. For example:

1) an operation like AM could succeed with it's plans and right now one share costs just ~0.15. Yes, predicting it is speculative and shares could go to zero. But believing that large gains can be achieved without appropriate risk is infantile,
 
2) large mining operations are killing my miner's profitability? - what about taking advantage of depressed prices and accumulate btc? Each month, for a fracture of my income. In fact, current low prices are to large extent the merit of those mining behemoths. In a few years I could look very, very smart with this simple approach. If/when the price spikes I could even buy a miner - of course only if appropriate opportunity arises

3) why not to try some arbitrage even if just for fun - serious attempt requires time and dedication.

Eagerly looking for good news from AM  Wink

I don't speak chinese, but if I look at the numbers in the article: I guess this post by friedcat looks like a pretty decent translation of the prisma article

Great summary, thanks. Didn't know that avalon is still afloat. What happened to that AntMiner outfit, or is this one of the lines above?

Well said. The correct timing for purchases of either bitcoins or mining gear can make all the difference. AM has shown they navigate the waters very well in terms of responding to timing, pricing and approach despite extreme challenges in predicting what will happen next. It's been fun if nothing else Smiley

Will check it out and most probably you are right.

EDIT: Looks like they are identical in bullet points structure, which PLUS just simple logic strongly hints that its the same announcement. Posted in the translation thread.

I miss back when Wednesday was the best day of the week.  Now it is just depressing.  It's been so long without divs I'm not even sure how many shares I own.  Undecided

Every Wednesday I come back to this thread hoping that today will be the day that divs come back. Wednesdays used to be a happy time with Lophie boasting about dibs providing fuel for his jet Smiley yeah right...

Oh well I still believe dibs will resume because Friedcat said so but it would be nice for a goddamn update so I wasn't basing my belief off of a statement he made months ago. Things change fast.
