Big news from Bitcoin ASIC Builder Butterfly Labs: Their next ASIC will be 28nm and will feature a PCIe form factor that should make former GPU miners pretty happy and other manufacturers at least a little envious.

The card will feature BFL’s second generation of ASIC created with a 28nm process. BFL’s current architecture is built around the 65nm process which refers to the size of a single transistor. Smaller transistors mean higher performance for lower power consumption so it should come as no surprise that a chip with transistors less than half the size packs quite a punch.

The card is slated to run at 600GH/s while consuming a scant 300 watts of electricity, comparable to the power consumption of high-end video cards miners are already using. What’s not comparable to high-end GPUs is the price: the $4,680 price tag may put this out of reach for many miners – at least initially.

28nm announced? I think the lab has not cleared the long queue that Better to forget it until the test model tapped out.

The representation may be impressive, but they only just have successfully beamed out the 65nm ones, how bad the management they are.

Let see who can release the first 28nm integer modules first, due to the delay. The BFL may not be able to fulfill themselves.

Reason: Like YiFu's speech , Bad relationship on Production plants like TSMC (http://motherboard.vice.com/blog/engineering-the-bitcoin-gold-rush-an-interview-with-yifu-guo-creator-of-the-first-asic-based-miner ,accessed on 20 Aug 2013), Can be problem.

Really? It wasn't too long ago that 50BTC bought you a 10GH/s ASICMiner blade. Now <50BTC buys you a 600GH/s PCIe card that uses <400W, and you wouldn't buy it?

Tips? 1crazy8pMqgwJ7tX7ZPZmyPwFbc6xZKM9

Not from that group of f-ups I wouldn't.

I am very happy to hear people wont buy from BFL. Those folks will eventually be making an exit from BTC mining. ;-)
