I'm interested.
Again, until someone has confirmed it's authenticity, I will not consider buying.
I suggest you take up some offers from the forums trusted members.

Thanks

Personaly I don't care much for excessive bragging. And so far that's all they've done. All they have to show for is a nice looking logo.

They are at least 6 months behind in research (Jasinlee, Alpha-tech, ...) and still have the nerve to claim they will be first! Mind boggling...

I could be wrong, but it looks like BFL all over again.

Flowertech, make us a 5mh/s unit for $4000, and a 20mh/s unit for $15000.

If you can hit these targets you will make a fortune. If you do as alpha-technology did and try to charge over $1/khs with a long delivery time, you wont see much for business.

Please dont bother selling chips, boards etc. These will just slow down production and spread your company to thin.

I'm not sure your numbers are accurate..  Regardless our machines will be much cheaper than this.  Once we finish masking, manufacturing the actual system is relatively low cost.  This allows us to market our product at under $0.30 per kh/s.

thanks for the response Brock, glad to know you're aiming for fair pricing compared to the ridiculous price alpha tech is trying to sell. Do you plan a pre-launch booking or are you releasing the asics into the market directly in may ?

If things look good, i'm def interested and I'm sure the community will be too.

It is quite difficult to raise funds for a project involving the such high-risk.  We may have to offer pre-orders to help bond the project together, but I'll let everyone know when we've made our decision.

Sign me up for 10mh/s worth. The only hurdle is the pre-order stuff. I would be willing to place a small deposit, but thats about it. Just because its a new company still.

0.30cents a KHS!!! Wow, even the Radeon R9 270x's at $175 come out to 2.5 per KHS.... at that price your product could be ground breaking

Your thinking 2.5 khs/usd. Which is. 40cents a khs. Where did you find cards that cheap?

That comes out to $180 per card, excluding the costs of system overhead.

Add in (conservatively):
$250 PSU
$100 Mobo
$50 CPU
$50 RAM
$10 Milkcrate
$10 USB Stick
$30 box fan
$50 risers

...and you have $550 in overhead. Assuming you can run six cards per rig, that gives you a final cost per kilohash at: ($180 x 6) + $550 = $1630 for 2700 KH/s or $0.60 per kilohash.

Just pointing this out because people seem to always forget to include the cost of overhead in their projections.

And i havent seen any 270xs at under $200. I am totally skeptical that flower tech can pull off these claims.
