I'm sure a lot of people bought more GPU lately.  With profitability down, do you think they will just switch off their equipments?  Will the difficulty actually lower?!

Well, until we get more power-efficient ASIC, we may well lose a few tera-hashes from GPU...

What do you think?  Is there some miner here facing a difficult time?

BTW: I myself mine at 2.2GH/s with FPGA (custom design/miner), taking 450W (soon to be upgraded to 3.3GH/s).  I still make profit, like 10$/day, but I just can't imagine what it is to draw a few KW with GPU, especially where electricity is higher than here in Quebec...
