1  Bitcoin / Hardware / March 30th BFL ASIC update on: March 29, 2013, 05:20:16 AM
Just relaying what I saw in the chat. You can check the BFL chat archives for yourself.

The units are working, but the last issue is fixing the power drain. Some units are using more than 2x as much power than necessary and they think they know how to fix it very soon. They have to fix the drain issue, because despite the power consumption still being low, it's causing heat issues.

If the power/heat issues still exist with the BitForce Single SC(60GH unit), then BFL will option to ship two  Little Single SC(30GH units) in its place until the problem is resolved.

Once this is fixed, units are expected to ship. The rough projection is 2 weeks. In an absolute perfect world, units might ship next week. They can build about 400 units a day. If you're an early pre-order, and have a FPGA unit getting traded up, check the site to find out when.

Take the news or leave it.   I'm not a BFL apologist, but I was curious.
