I highly doubt November will happen. I was beat to the punch.

Is there any way to tell what process was used to make the device just from pictures? 130nm?

The physical package dimensions won't really tell you anything  Undecided

That's what I figured. Although, I was only guessing because I know next to nothing about the subject.

It's becoming interesting.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)

It's either smaller than I expected or the hand model is a giant.

Its theoretical maximum output is even higher, but the decision was made to limit the computing power of each chip to provide quieter operation.

I'm putting this in a server room.  It will be around several 60db+ fans.

BFL, please allow me to increase it to the maximum safe non-quiet mode.

Based on the standard stacking connector size, de board seems to be 70x70 mm.

Each of the eight black squares on the board is a chip capable of computing 7.5 GH/s. Its theoretical maximum output is even higher, but the decision was made to limit the computing power of each chip to provide quieter operation.

This is what I'll be tracking. Reminds me of the old governors we had to put on cars that could go faster but weren't allowed.
Hack.

lol?

You do realize that both the word "chip" in "RAM chip" and the "IC" in "ASIC" mean Integrated Circuit, don't you.
And as they are both integrated circuits, it is not really surprising (or humorous) that they look similar when soldered onto a board.

Is there any way to tell what process was used to make the device just from pictures? 130nm?

Nah, from the shade of gray I'd say it's most probably 65nm.

Wow. Just wow.
The level of ignorance on this Forum sometimes astounds me.

They're friggen dark grey squares with no markings, how the hell is anyone supposed to determine the technology used.
(X-ray vision does not work over the Interwebs.)

If the parts were even ever marked at some point (and early engineering samples often are not) you can be sure that BFL would have sanded the markings off like they did with the Atratix chips in their previous generation products.

And yes, I know it's "Stratix", not "Atratix", I just find it funny how people have been quoting the original typo without ever realizing it.
