When I started mining with bitminter.com a couple weeks ago, their hashrate was around 2.5Gh/s, and the top miner, carpo446, had about 330Gh/s.  Within the last week, bitminter's hashrate has doubled and is now at 5.5Th/s, and there are two people above carpo446 now... testtest and Karlson, both having about 700Gh/s.  Testtest fluctuates from 600-700Gh/s every couple minutes and is currently at 750. 

My question is, short of having a bunch of new ASICs (700Gh/s is roughly 160 Jalapenos) *cough* BFL... HOW can someone blow away 300Gh/s and get up to 700Gh/s?  And with a name like testtest... is it possible that's BFL "testing" their ASICs?

They said they would use a testnet to test and not mine with them

Having said that, they would probably use Inaba's pool if they were going to mine.

some miners in bitminter are mining with Avalon. I don't know about testtest but or Karlson but some from 90 to 200 Ghs have one or more Avalon.

If you have that much power, why use a pool at all! Just mine yourself!

Do the math and it will be clear.

Did your friend have his Unicorns and Leprachauns configure them properly, need to make sure they are hashing away properly you know....  Unicorns and Leprachauns are the only ones that can configure that little sucker to get over 9000 Gh/s...

I did the math.

With 700 GH/s, you will mine a block every 15 hours on average. That is low enough that you can just mine yourself and keep your whole block.

If it were weeks, well than you could get unlucky and not get a block, but a 15 hour average is short enough that it should even out after a couple of weeks/months.

Maybe they're happy to pay the pool fee just to show off how big their hashing e-peen is?
