Gridseed will Produce A2 chip based Scrypt ASIC Miners Exclusively?

MinerEU, Gridseed official distributor, has just informed us that Gridseed has signed an exclusive contract with Innosilicon to produce and distribute A2 Scrypt ASIC chips and miners globally. The advanced 28nm Scrypt ASIC A2 has 1.6-1.8 MHs hashrate and 10W on each chip. With a 1000KW PSU and the right cooling fans, a new A2-based miner can achieve up to 150 MHs hashrate.

The A2 chip is developed by Innosilicon’s teams based in Silicon valley and China and is the first 28nm Scrypt ASIC to hit the market. The global exclusive contract with Gridseed, the first Scrypt ASIC chip manufacture in the world, means the two most advanced ASIC producers will be able to provide better products and services for our mining community.

This new partnership will most likely mean that these new miners will be able to beat the competition that has also been working on 28nm Scrypt ASICs such as KnCMiner and Alpha Technology in terms of delivery time. We still don’t have official information about expected delivery dates, but we consider that end of May may sounds like a reasonable and optimistic date to start deliveries of first units. We’ll see how things go, but the battle on the Scrypt ASIC market is already seriously heating up.

Update: It seems that this deal with Gridseed might have not been finalized as Innosilicon has published the following updated information on their website (the link above):

Up to this point (May 5th 2014), Innosilicon has not signed any deal on official reselling or distribution rights with anyone so any announcement from an non-Innosilicon source claiming any rights on A2 is false.

Update: And the above sentence has been removed from Innosilicon’s website and has been replaced with the following:

Gridseed is one of our strategic customers and partners in virtual currency area, we share the responsibility of building a healthy environment for this innovative and exciting market place.

Proven false.

http://gridseed.com/en/news/14.html – Looks like production of the 5 chip Gridseed has ended. Kind of sad but inevitable with higher and higher hash rates needed to mine Scrypt coins. I’d think Gridseed needs to offer more than just the blade though. It’ll be interesting to see how all this turns out.
