200-Chip Packs Let Miners and Data Centers Accelerate Their Existing Equipment at Below Original Production Cost
STOCKHOLM, Aug. 15, 2014 — KnCMiner (https://www.kncminer.com/), the most trusted brand in Bitcoin mining, announced today that it is making available its 28 nm SHA256-crunching chip from its Jupiter Bitcoin mining equipment available to the public, and at below what it cost KnC Miner to purchase the chips itself—$27 USD per processor. The chips are being sold in sets of 200 at a cost of $5,400 USD and will ship from stock within 48 hours.
“We understand that not everyone had the desire, or even wherewithal, to purchase new miners in order to keep up with hashing demands,” said KnCMiner CEO Sam Cole. “With the release of these chips, it’s possible for miners to configure their boards and see a real-cost of below 15 cents per gigahash per second.”
The chips are shipped with technical descriptions on their ball-map and relevant documentation. PCB boards and DC/DC converters are not included. Orders are non-refundable. Because of yield rate, the number of useable cores varies. Statistically, at least 70 percent of production at this level has contained chips with 100 percent usable cores. Up to 90 percent of all chips have 187 or more usable cores, with the rest of the chips varying below that number.
The specifications are as follows:
· 28 nm TSMC process
· 192 hash engines (cores)
· Designed to run at 0.9V core voltage
· SPI communication interface
· 55×55 mm FCLBGA package (ball count: 2,797)
