Even though we didn’t report on the weekly udate from ZeusMiner last week, that doesn’t mean we have lost interest in the company. They made some new announcements yesterday, so let’s recap what’s been said!
As promised, ZeusMiner has started shipping out their first units. A very impressive feat, especially concerning they shipped nearly 6 weeks ahead of their original schedule. My hat off to their entire team!
This also means that , for the people who had an order number between 1 and 500, and who didn’t pick up their order in person, you should have received a tracking number via email. Delivery should only take a few days, depending on customs of course.
The ZeusMiner assembly staff has been tripled, and are working 24 hours a day (in 2 or 3 shifts) in order to get all products assembled and shipped out as soon as possible. In order to speed up the manufacturing, all models are created in waves, and the staff are going through constant rotations (Blizzards, Lightnings, Thunders,Cyclones,Blizzards,Lightnings,….)
One a batch of a certain model has been assembled, your miners undergo a mandatory 48-hour pressure testing in the ZeusMiner heat room. This is done in order to ensure every device is running smoothly.
Given the recent thread with Coinotron having 51% of the Litecoin network, ZeusMiner wants to assure everyone they are not testing their miners on Coinotron. Everyone who receives their miner, should seek out other pools in order to spread out the Litecoin network hashrate.
ZeusMiner has encountered some hardship as well though. One of their PCB board casing suppliers failed to produce these in time. This has lead to ZeusMiner being forced to use their original PCB board case designs, but with improved PCB configurations.
The downside of this is that it creates quite some inconvenience in regards to space and power supply for us miners. But have no fear, as ZeusMiner will compensate everyone by increasing your total hashrate AGAIN.
Lightning Package consists of 4 * 4 blade miners (each 800 W) with a total of 88+ Mh/s
Existing Thunder customers will have their hashing power increased to 44 Mh/s
Thunder Package consists of 2 * 4 blade miners (each 800 W) with a total of 44+ Mh/s
Cyclone Customers can enjoy an increase to 22 Mh/s
Cyclone Package consists of 1 * 4 blade miner (800 W) with a total of 22+ Mh/s
You may have noticed that the Blizzard devices are notably absent. That has a simple and positive reason, as these devices have already undergone extensive testings and are meeting the team’s expectations.
In order to smoothly run your newly assembled ZeusMiner hardware, we need mining software to use them. The controller source code has been sent out to to different developers, and the binaries for all platforms are expected to be released soon.
All in all, I’m absolutely impressed with how the ZeusMiner team are handling their business. Shipments ahead of time, no delays despite some adversity with production and suppliers,….. Wow. I can’t wait to get my Blizzard!
