New Products


A lot has happened in the last few weeks, so we thought it was time for a new update. The main focus of this newsletter will be around the following topics:

  •          Jupiter’s performance increase.
  •          A new product called Saturn.
  •          More information on our approach to Litecoin mining devices.
  •          Things we are working on in the next few weeks.

 

Update of Jupiter performance

                We have previously announced that Jupiter will have a minimum performance of 250GH/s. We can now be a little more accurate and say that it will be above 350GH/s. A few improvements have allowed this to happen. One of them is that we are now able to use the 28nm technology in our standard ASIC design.

Delivery is also important to our customers so we can also narrow down from saying autumn to the latter part of September 2013. This is still a compressed timeline but we are very confident we can meet our deadline. (Which in terms of Standard cell ASIC design is a very aggressive time frame.) We are able to commit to this deadline because of the experience that ORSoC brings.

The last update around Jupiter is the price. We previously stated that it would be between 7000 and 8000 USD per device. The final component costs are all in and we can confirm that the price will be 6995 USD.

So to recap. Jupiter now comes with:

  •    350 GH/s.
  •    28nm Standard Cell ASIC chips.
  •    Shipment in September 2013.
  •    6995 USD price tag.

 

Announcement of Saturn    

                We have had many people asking for a cheaper ASIC device, which would still give great value for money in terms of hashes per dollar.

So we have listened. We have created Saturn, Saturn is a 4 blade device. (Jupiter is an 8 blade device) Saturn still offers great value in terms of hash per dollar, but has a much more favorable purchase price of 3795 USD. It will have a minimum performance of 175 GH/s and because it’s based on the same modular design as Jupiter, they will ship alongside each other in September 2013.

So to recap on Saturn:

  •    175 GH/s.
  •    28nm Standard Cell ASIC chips.
  •    Shipment in September 2013.
  •    3795 USD price tag.

 

Litecoin device

A common request arriving on our desks is around us producing a Litecoin mining device. We have stated that we are looking into it, to see if we can develop a device that would make sense for the Litecoin community. What we would like to say at this stage is that we are removing things form our plate which in any way delay the shipment of our ASIC based Bitcoin mining hardware, having said that if we have any space in our resources. (Which we may increase in the near future) They are being targeted at producing a Litecoin device. So as of today it’s on the plan but is second only to the ASIC Bitcoin devices.  We will continue to conduct research into Litecoin devices and see exactly how challenging it would be to produce an FPGA type setup for mining Litecoins.

 

The coming weeks

Next week we will have a demo video of our Mars device uploaded for everyone to see. So at this point we would like to invite the community to select people to come to our offices. Those people would be able to meet the engineering team and have a look at our prototype. If you would like an invite please send us an email. We will try to accommodate as many people as we can.

Above all we would like to say thanks again for all of your feedback. Keep it coming it allows us to produce better and more targeted products.
