100th : Chip results successfull
Chip results are successful. This was the most important and risky milestone of the project. Preliminary test results were posted on Bitcointalk by Bitfury (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=228677.msg2515472#msg2515472).
Unfortunately the chip does not perform as planned. We optimistically assumed a hashrate of 3.5GH/s at 0.6V. The chip is 2 times slower and if overclocked can run at 2GH/s. Further overclocking would be to expensive in terms of hardware prices (power supply).
Because of the lower hash rate we will have problems to deliver the full 104TH/s performance in the next weeks. Only 35296 chips are expected to be available for the mine next week. This corresponds to only 70TH/s. We are still waiting for the other packaging company to provide us with the estimation of the date for the completion of packaging.
We expect a delay of 1-2 weeks in launching the mine. We assume the initial launch will include only 70TH/s and few days later additional 34TH/s will be installed.
