I'll tell for 40 BTC!  Do I hear 50? Smiley

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

I believe my prediction of 65nm will be shown to be right Smiley

Smart thinking.
I believe you are right about this, after reading BFL posts.
45 is still too expensive, even AMD is stuck at 32.
Only Intel is capable to do 22 at the moment

Inaba, you cannot get paid for that, because...

Both of these bounties become null and void if BFL releases the figures themselves.

It was very craftily formulated to not let you earn a single satoshi. Wink

If Inaba tells me the figures but not in public then I can collect.  I'll only charge 50%, how about it Inaba?

Maybe 45nm? That could be why Josh sees these as penultimate without room for much improvement.

There is ALWAYS room for improvement, if not we would all still be living in caves eating rocks.

I will offer a 20BTC bounty to anybody who posts a measurement of the size of the die used in BFL's "SC" devices.  I'm assuming they all use the same chip.  It's really easy to get the die measurement from a broken device -- just grind off the plastic/ceramic top using a dremel and pull out a ruler.  I will be happy to escrow the bounty with a well-known forum member if you can present credible evidence that you're serious about this -- that way you can be sure you'll get paid before you totally wreck your already-broken device.

I need this figure in order to compute the η-factor for their product.

I will also offer a 20BTC bounty for knowledge of which process node BFL is using.  However, I caution in advance that it's not as easy to be 100% certain about that -- you can't just measure it with a ruler -- so claiming this bounty will be more difficult and will involve more verification (which might not even be possible) than the raw die-size bounty.  Please post here if you have any questions about what would be sufficient to claim this bounty; I don't want any hard feelings.

I have offered bounties like this in the past and have a history of paying promptly.

Both of these bounties become null and void if BFL releases the figures themselves.

Hi Elden, the node and method are detailed in the upcoming issue of bitcoin magazine.   (Issue #4).

It'd be funny if BFL won this bounty.

LOL Josh mails him a Jalapeno.

lol. good one.

I don't see a die-size prediction. I'm going with 24mm^2

From the board pictures, the chip packages appear to my eyes to be 11x11mm.

Not that that says a whole lot about the die size.
