All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The Scrypt ASIC race continues as KnCMiner has just updated their Scrypt ASIC miners’ hashrate again, not long after their supposed main competitor Alpha Technology has also increased the hashrate of their Viper units. Now the KnCMiner Titan is supposed to come out with 400 MHS hashrate and the mini version should offer 200 MHS hashrate. KnC has also just announced they have finished with the tape out of their Scrypt ASIC chips, meaning that the design of the chips has been finalized and they can be sent for manufacturing. KnCMiner says they should be able to deliver in Q3 and since the tape out has been finalized at the start of this month a end of July for shipping still seems to be very optimistic and the more realistic time is August. KnCMiner has also announced that they have started accepting orders for a second batch of Scrypt ASIC miners that will be shipped abut a month later than the first batch, so an August/September probably. The Batch 2 miners are priced at $3795 USD for the Mini Titan and $6995 USD for the Titan without VAT.
