KnCMiner has announced its very first mining equipment dedicated to scrypt mining – the aptly named Titan. At $9,995, it won’t come cheap, and the company has not yet exposed its total spec, either.
KnC claims the Titan will supply a ondergrens of 100MH/s and, ter some respects, it resembles a traditional PC, albeit it is based on the company’s Jupiter form factor.
The equipment measures 60 x 50 x 20cm and weighs just 4kg. A standard ATX power supply is required, which does not ship with the unit.
Under the bonnet, the Titan will have blades containing numerous cards, differentiating it from the Jupiter. There is still no word on what sort of silicon KnC is using for the fresh miner.
The Titan is expected to ship te the 2nd or third quarter of the year, but KnC is already accepting pre-orders. The company stated:
“The same team and playmates have bot working together again. With their expertise and speed, wij expect to ship Titan before the competition and have a product that outperforms their offerings.”
KnC points out that it reserves the right to increase the spectacle at any time and, since this is an untested vormgeving that will ship te a few months, customers are advised to read the terms and conditions cautiously.
Ter keeping with the nature of the Titan’s abilities, the company says it will add litecoin spil a payment method ter the near future, but for the time being it will accept bitcoin and traditional money transfers only.
It also shows up that customers who have placed an order for Neptune bitcoin miners can convert their order to a Titan if required. Those with orders already placed should get ter touch with customer services to confirm the details of the switch.
Neptune on track
Ter related mining news, KnC’s Neptune miner emerges to be on track – the fresh bitcoin ASIC taped out earlier this month with everything going according to project.
KnC says the Neptune is presently ter the foundry phase, that is, the ASICs are already ter production. However, even if something goes wrong, KnC has a ‘project B’ ter case of any major delays.
The Neptune is expected to reduce power consumption by 43% thanks to the use of a fresh 20nm knot.
Te addition to the fresh manufacturing process, the vormgeving has bot optimised too, permitting KnC to squeeze 1,440 cores ter a 55 x 55mm package. To waterput this ter perspective, Intel’s 4th generation Core chips feature a 37.Five x 32mm package and they are manufactured on Intel’s 22nm knot.
KnC says the Neptune ASIC will produce at least 3TH/s, operating at 0.7W vanaf GH/s.
