SG10 – Copper Edition Update

When we launched the SG10 Copper Edition pre-orders, we knew the choice of compatible GPUs was limited, which is why it was critical for us to collect customer choices and have an extended lead time to evaluate how best to cover the widest selection of graphics cards. Today, we would like to elaborate on this and answer some of the questions that are most commonly asked about the SG10 Copper Edition.

Expanding the Compatibility List

Our initial list of compatible cards consisted of just six cards, chosen at the time of product development based on popularity (from sales figure data). Obviously, that has somewhat changed, but fortunately, they represented a good starting point for ‘comparable’ board layouts, which allows our modular cooling solution to be quickly adapted to the minor variations between cards.

We have already identified 12 additional requested cards that appear to be suitable and, once validated, will be added to the list of cold plate options. As we collect more customer requests and validate more cards, we will continue expanding on this list. Our goal is to cover the majority of popular cards and continue to add compatibility wherever possible.

With this in mind, we have also decided to modify how we collect card choices; previously, when placing an order, you would enter your first choice and then choose a backup option from the short list of compatible cards. As we aim to expand the list of compatible cards, knowing a customer’s second card option will provide more valuable data on which cards we need to add.

Free Cold Plate Upgrade

Another question that often comes up is compatibility with new cards, and whilst we can’t guarantee next-generation GPUs can be supported until they have been released and are able to test them, we are firmly committed to ongoing compatibility expansion. Whether it’s a new generation of GPU, or you decide the card you chose wasn’t the right one for you, every SG10 Copper Edition will include a free cold plate upgrade, valid for the first two years from delivery.

This offer for the free cold plate upgrade only applies to the Copper Edition, as we appreciate the current choice of compatible cards is limited and excludes shipping.

Other SG10 Copper Edition FAQs

  • Why do I need to buy a voucher from Calyos first?
    As part of our commitment to refund all Kickstarter backers who no longer want the product, the pledge voucher is our mechanism for making this happen.
  • Is the SG10 going into production now or does it need to reach a minimum number of units pre-ordered?
    The SG10 Copper Edition is going into production irrespective of how many units are sold and many parts have already been ordered.
  • When will the regular SG10 be available for purchase?
    The regular (non-copper edition) SG10 is planned for release towards the end of 2024 with a retail price of €1000
  • Will I be able to buy the Copper Edition again in future?
    The SG10 Copper Edition is a one-time production product; only 500 will be made, and it will NOT be produced again in future.
  • Where is the SG10 being manufactured?
    While many of the components are sourced in China, the final assembly of the SG10 will take place in Belgium, as integration with the evaporator must be done by Calyos.
