when talking with BFL the other day it was mentioned that the rig box was using the same boards but newer chips, and to make the 50Gh 34-36 boards would be required...

Maybe we will see a 1400Mh Single soon?

based on the guesses, is there a chip that would be a drop in replacement but faster?

Two EP3SL340 should do the job. No idea how expensive they are today.

http://www.buyaltera.com/scripts/partsearch.dll

Around $11,000 from the manufacturer

Thats super over priced though I doubt anyone would ever pay that with the new chips out

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/345918367/EP3SL340_ALTERA_IC_Integrated_Circuit.html This supplier sells it for $100 a piece and less. Just so you know...

I've seen this website. Not sure how legit they are... anyone know? They seem to have pretty expensive electronics for absurdly low prices. I'm skeptical.

I suspect - based mostly on the vagueness of the descriptions and the prices - that they're full of BS. Alibaba.com is basically a marketplace where a whole bunch of different companies can list their products and services, it doesn't do that much in the way of checking, and some of them have most likely just grabbed a big list of components and created entries for them all regardless of whether they can actually obtain them in the hope that they can source them if someone is willing to pay them money. Then of course there's fake components and outright scammers...

Alibaba used to be rife with scammers and fraud, but they have worked hard to improve that, by validating sellers and offering built-in escrow via Escrow.com. However, just because something is listed does not mean that it is available, or even that it is available at that price. You can't buy anything directly like eBay, as far as i can tell, you must contact the seller to arrange it.

Not only arrange it, but get a brand holder's permission to sell their product in your country. I'm sure it should be easy to arrange, but you can't just import lets say 1k BMW's and screw with an official dealer and a distributor in your country. I've tried to get quotes for AMD Radeon 5850 and 5870's, but got a reply from Alibaba's supply manager that I have to get a brand owner's permission. Luckily I didn't go for it, as I discovered FPGA's
