AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CoinTerra, the market leader in ASIC Bitcoin mining solutions today revealed the GSX I, an affordable PCI Express mining card that sets new standards in both performance and price for enthusiasts, hobbyists and system builders.
Building on the phenomenal success of the TerraMiner™, the highest performance Bitcoin miner ever released, CoinTerra has now announced their second product with the introduction of the GSX I PCIe Card Bitcoin miner.
"Having delivered the TerraMiner, the most powerful Bitcoin miner ever released, we decided to turn our attention to designing an affordable solution for the folks who kick-started the mining revolution – enthusiasts and hobbyists looking for an affordable path to ASIC-based Bitcoin mining. At just $1,599 and delivering over 400 gigahash per second, the GSX I combines a low cost of entry with exceptional performance," said Ravi Iyengar, CEO - CoinTerra, Inc.
At the heart of the GSX I is CoinTerra's proven GoldStrike™ I ASIC processor mated to CoolIT's DCLC™ direct contact liquid cooling unit with a 120mm exhaust fan. The GSX I package is designed to fit a wide assortment of PC mid-tower and full-tower cases, enabling the seamless integration of a dedicated high-performance Bitcoin mining processor into a standard PC form factor.
The GSX I is controlled by the same software as the TerraMiner, running on the host PC and connected via the card's USB ports. This architecture allows for maximum flexibility, including the exciting possibility of building expandable mining solutions with non-PC controllers.
"An additional benefit of this design is that an entirely standalone system comprised of multiple GSX I cards could be driven by an off-the-shelf controller, such as the BeagleBone Black found inside the TerraMiner. We would be thrilled to see the community explore this kind of solution," said Jim O'Connor, VP Engineering – CoinTerra, Inc.
With its high performance, an attractive price of $1,599, and a flexible, expandable design built on tried-and-tested industry leading technology, CoinTerra is once again poised to revolutionize the hardware Bitcoin mining space with the GSX I.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?
