1)    BitForce SC Jalapeno: a USB powered coffee warmer providing 3.5 GH/s, priced at under $149
2)    BitForce SC Single: a standalone unit providing roughly 40 GH/s, priced at $1,299
3)    BitForce SC Mini Rig: a case & rack mount server providing 1 TH/s, priced at $29,899

This is going to completely decimate the FPGA and GPU industries, if Butterfly Labs is able to keep up with the demand.

*Looks at my poor little 5770 at 220 MH/s, and then at BitForce Jalapeno at 3.5 GH/s at 'approx' same price*

If history has taught us anything, it's that we won't be seeing an actual working unit from BFL for some time. 

That aside, speculating that this is real:  With the reward drop, it only makes sense that the average miner's hash rate will have to more than double to see the same rewards, so this would provide an avenue for that to happen.  However, that 1TH at 30G... 

I wonder if the delay in shipments has something to do with BFL's plans to announce this, but given history it seems unlikely.

Tl;dr: Game Changer.

Nothing like paying for a press release on yahoo news before updating your frakking website.  What are the expected ship times on those? LOL

We have officially announced our upcoming ASIC based SHA256 products today.  Here's the press release with most of the relevant details:

http://news.yahoo.com/butterfly-labs-announces-next-generation-asic-lineup-054626776.html

Note:  We're currently focused on the shipment of our Mini Rig product and won't be able to field questions for a few days but we'll be back with answers to any questions.

Kind regards,
BFL

3)    BitForce SC Mini Rig: a case & rack mount server providing 1 TH/s, priced at $29,899

This strikes me as very odd. You could make a much higher profit margin. Why on earth would you price these this low?

You seem to have delivered, if a bit tardily, so far, but this just leaves me stunned. Pricing this low cannot make any sense for your bottom line.

1. A USB port can deliver 2.5 Watts.

2. This means they are claiming 1,400 MH/J.

3. The current record is under 25 MH/J, so they are claiming a 5600% improvement in power efficiency.

Does anybody here believe this?

I call bullshit.


The printing press heralded the end of the Dark Ages and made the Enlightenment possible, but it took another three centuries before any country managed to put freedom of the press beyond the reach of legislators.  So it may take a while before cryptocurrencies are free of the AML-NSA-KYC surveillance plague.

Yeah, I'm kind of amazed that Yahoo just blindly reposts PRWeb's paid advertisements.  Including those with mysteriously-omitted surnames.  And unnamed VC's.

I have to keep reminding myself that it's not the first day of April, I'm torn between the fact that it's on a legitimate news site, and the facts that the main site has not been updated, you called it a "coffe warmer" and it has 3.5GH/s at 22MH/s/$.

Other than the obvious wondering when they'd be scheduled to ship and the details of the buyback program, what's the power use?

They pretty much guaranteed market dominance. Maybe they want these devices sent out to as many people as possible to protect the network sooner from the possibility of interference. With all the venture capital they have received they will want to protect their investment and that means protecting bitcoin.
