Thanks for all ; Skills: Alydian filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Asic 1st,only 3 months after being founded by CoinLab. Unknown status, generally presumed to have been dishonest in their presentation and pre sales using bitcoin image of an 20nm that itself was manipulated to remove board markings. This was a mining hardware question. Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!
Not to be confused with Phoenix Technologies Ltd. Used manipulated images of G-Technology G-Safe and G-Speed products, is generally presumed to have been dishonest in their presentation and pre sales. Other than old website claims available through archive. Company supposedly sold hardware incorporating this chip by pre-order for a July delivery. Also known as BitAsic www.
Date is for tech availability. Unknown status, was met with skepticism at various forums. Little is known about this chip outside of its purported use in hardware that could be rented early cloudhashing.
No page appears to have details the now-defunct website mentioned a day delay in tape-out , and the validity of the company's claims have been called into question. The conflicting efficiency data stems from claimed efficiency in text versus apparent efficiency as shown on a purported miner display. It is currently not known if the chip claimed is of their own design. Hash rate and efficiency are derived from 'M20' hardware claims.
Date is first appearance of company's website, chips are claimed to be expected Q4 This company is the subject of several scam allegations at BitcoinTalk.

Sawn QFN56 8x8mm Markings: Top marked Top unmarked. Cobra www BCT Introduced: Not much is known about this chip other than that it existed, was technologically successful, but financially expensive - as noted by Bitcoin entrepreneur Li Xiaolai.
BitFury Group considers this their Gen 1, Rev 1 product. It was originally designed at 65nm but die-shrunk down to 55nm . High efficiency claims were made by BitFury  that at this time seem unrealistic. BitcoinTalk user vs3 holds a large collection of technical information about this chip in his NanoFury repository .
Punched QFN48 7x7mm Markings: BitFury Group considers this their Gen 1, Rev 2 product. This chip is pin- and protocol-compatible with the BFC55, allowing many existing designs based on the BFC55 to be upgraded. BitFury Group considers this their Gen 4 product. BitFury Group have stated that they will not be making chip samples or details available. Bitmain considers this their 'Gen 2' product. This chip uses a custom physical pin configuration that should be treated as a QFN with multiple exposed pads.
Bitmain considers this their 'Gen 3' product. Confidential, not released https: Black Arrow Ltd Facilitators: Top Bottom mockup Layout. Minion www BCT Introduced: Unknown www BCT Introduced: Date is tape-out date.

Although the MCM package shows 4 dies, only 3 are active silicon. Zhejiang Ebang Communication Co. P6P 2C Die: This chip can perform SHA d and Scrypt calculations. The performance figures are strictly for the SHA d portion. The 'GC' in the product code stands for 'Gridchip' .
L0 , T6A Golden Nonce The MCM has four dies with active silicon, and each die is 9x9mm  , giving an 18x18mm total die size. Bitmine AG , Synapse, Verisilicon. This chip uses a custom physical pin configuration that should be treated as an LPCC with multiple power pads. A3 BCT a Jul 14nm chip. This chip is not yet available. Top Bottom Layout Die detail Engine. Jupiter www BCT Introduced: Neptune www BCT Introduced: As this chip is claimed to exist by a reputable party KnCMiner AB , the information in this template requires expansion.
Land Asic Land Asic Facilitators: Land Asic Unknown www Introduced: Die size is silicon area Sawn QFN68 8x8mm Markings: Or is the difficulty just too great now and power consumption too much that its impossible? Somewhere the numbers must add up to return a profit, but I've had no luck in finding the hardware needed to do so.
And other companies have decided to no longer sell to the public and just mine for themselves. But I have a feeling it would be a lot more work to assemble a working rig if one were to drop a few hundred grand. Is cloud hashing a good bet? Hero Member Offline Posts: Hero Member Offline Activity: I have a feeling it would be a lot more work to assemble a working rig if one were to drop a few hundred grand. TheRealSteve on May 30, , I think you can look over at this thread and see current gen still has some promise of more efficiency specifically Bitmains chip used in the S5 - https: Although k is a drop in the bucket most likely.
And really even after they are made I find chances small most companies will tell costs. With luck going your way and BTC value appreciating, you can realistically be looking at making your money back in a short time span.
Please support sidehack with his new miner project Send to: This topic has been moved to Mining speculation will be the next move for this thread one can only hope. Ask the mods or admins to move Dogie's spam or off topic stalking posts to the link above.
I'd need about of them, and might boost it to 1. The problem I run into is that's a lot of colocation space. It may make more sense to host it at home, but I'd need about kW of power Not sure what is needed to get that kind of set up, but hey I do have a 4 car garage with no cars it could all fit into.
I think 9 months is a reasonable return on hardware if I'm between 1. You must really enjoy moving threads, as we're not all hip to each category. This was a mining hardware question. Bicknellski on May 30, , Well, it was mostly a hardware mining question, since I wanted to know which miner was the best bang for the buck one that would be out or coming out soon or even if 16 or 20NM ASICs were available.
So I don't know. I don't think he meant to be mean with his comment. If you were really investing k yes you could very well make a thread about it and your updates It might be put in mining possibly though. People come here asking if I buy X miners what will happen? If I had X amount of cash and bought miners what will happen?
If you ever wondered how hot does the Bitmain AntMiner S1 Bitcoin ASIC Miner get when operating and mining for BTC now you can get a better idea about the temperatures As you can see the temperature on the left is lower than that on the right side of the board due to the fact that the cooling fan is on the left side. Access to your own asic chips - project new 20nm or 28nm ASIC Gh/s or more if can. See example pdf: [url removed, login to view] (but is 28nm Ghash, I want more Ghash if can and 20nm). 2. Boards PCB layout with ASIC chip (for Ghash - Ghash if can more). 3. Fans for chip ASIC. 4. You must have the. I've read 16NM has been in development and I think 20NM ASICs are available. Can one buy That's why I was curious about sourcing the ASIC chips themselves. But I have a Here's a decent play-by-play of getting a chip with just enough information to get it working and designing board(s) around it.
