Take this how ever you choose this will likely interest people who have orders already.

While PCB performance specifications have come in above the 600GH we originally projected, we have not yet hit the 1TH/s per PCB mark that we set for ourselves based on the strength of the underlying ASIC chip. We have achieved much higher speeds on test boards, but in order to be able to ship now we have stabilized the board at 700GH/s with power efficiency of 0.70 W/GH (+/- 10%). While we will continue to pursue the 1TH version of the Monarch for subsequent delivery, we want

to get the best product we can out to you now. Shipping of Monarchs will begin next week.

Here is an image of the Monarch ready for shipment to customers right now.
(Please note the form factor with water cooling instead of air cooling)



As a reward for customers' patience and loyalty, we are adjusting the price of the 700 GH/s boards to $1,379 (ONLY $1.97/GH) and will be providing rebates/refunds for the difference. (Does not include cloud mining or Mining by the GH)

For those interested in running cards in power efficiency mode, here is a chart of power consumption at different speeds (@220V):

GH   Total W   W/GH
550   339   0.62
600   368   0.61
650   432   0.66
700   471   0.70
730   530   0.73
780   609   0.78
Specific details about updates to customer orders will be emailed and posted to each customers’ dashboards as boards are ready to be shipped.

You can buy a habanero which runs at 650 gh/s for about 1BTC.

2 S3 for 900 gh/s is 1.1 btc.

BFL is so sad...

Explain to me how paying over twice the going rate for $/GHs right now is a reward for "patience and loyalty".

Am I missing something ?

To be fair $1.97/gh/s is a great deal considering...  the competition is at least $17.50/gh and 2.5w/gh

Kinda hard to believe that horse shit is still up there, Jesus Christ they have balls.

I'd turn down even $0.01/gh/s if it was from BFL. Not worth man.

Jody will "mail" one out to Wired, then one to Reddit, then one to Gizmodo....

The first customers bumping up from their 2012 Single orders should see a Monarch around September....2015.  Just in time to refuse delivery and then get both no refund and no miner.

What happened to their promised leading efficiency of something like 0.4W/GH  Grin Grin

Meanwhile I am sitting here with my miners at (under) 0.9$/GH and am really bummed that I didn´t ride the butterflylabs train to josh/Sonnytown /sarcasm

This time only a little more than half a year´s delay?
That means next time it might be only 4 months delay, which constitutes express delivery for BFL.

Express delivery? They'll dub it Quantum Sonic Delivery, marketing such as QSD charging a premium for the service.
