    the date code is the 32ed week of 2013!

    That chain out section looks interesting. Cascade expansion ?

    Whoa your hands move just as fast as Data’s did on TNG!

    T4D #84 – Pt 2 Bitcoin Mining, BFL ASIC vs FPGA VS GPU vs CPU

    In this video I take a look at Bitcoin mining hardware. I compare the
    performance and power usage between BFL SC ASIC vs FPGA vs GPU (Nvideo GTX
    560 Ti and AMD ATI Radeon HD 8950) vs CPU (Intel Core i7 3930K).

    I demonstrate these in the Bitminter mining client and measure the power
    with a Kill-A-Watt.

    I then take a look inside (teardown / review) of the Butterfly Labs ASIC 5
    GH/s Bitcoin Miner:
    BitForce 5 GH/s SC
    Model: BF0005G

    Pictures of the teardown on my forum: Link to be posted soon

    0.75MH/s on CPU?
    Then BitMinter Client seems not to use the SSE2 extensions..
    your CPU should hash at about 20 to 60MH/s or faster …

    Good presentation

    Mh, the difficulty is today: 707408283. I become with my CPU i5-3470
    4-Cores and 3.2 GHz Base = 1140 Khpp and my GPU Geforce GTX650 with 1.2GHz
    and 384 Cuda Cores but only with 2 cu (low power consume) = 30 Mhps. So we
    notice the compute units made on Bitcoin mining the power of Nvidia Cards.
    This part: OpenCL 1.1, GeForce GTX 650 compute units:2@1058MHz and the AMD
    Card have 28 cu

    useful little video..

    Nice hardware, useless now tho… Cloudmining is the next big thing:

  11. avatar zelo533 says:

    now there is a more efficient way, it’s called Cloud mining

  12. avatar Jean Jay Quitayen says:

    Oh!!! its Atmel.

  13. avatar Calvin Seetin says:

    Nice video. Don’t believe that cloudmining stuff unless you want to trust
    someone you never met to pay you regularly. Otherwise, there are plenty of
    platforms on which to buy and sell bitcoin. I say DIY.

    You need to add the computer idle power ~85W to the ASIC running power of
    35W when you calculate the Performance/Watt since you need to computer to
    be on and the program running for mining.

    lol! I got 380mhps with a Titan! :D… Still bad… Better use a asic :)

  16. avatar Scorpion51000 says:

    http://cur.lv/6m77l If u need Bitminter :))))

  17. avatar Toto Guy says:

    interesting information i enjoyed watching that. i was looking at a rig
    claiming a guaranteed 30GH/s running 200w for reasonable cost to buy. i
    think putting the cost to buy the rig asside theres potential to make a
    good income from such a rig.

    This video is great thanks :)

  19. avatar BonhommeRichard91 says:

    Best look at mining and mining hardware I’ve seen anywhere on YT. Thanks

  20. avatar Pr. Nizar says:

    Why are you using pools? What about solo mining?

  21. avatar Rafael Ramirez says:

    wow, dificulty raised to .90 in two weeks this is getting harder to do isnt
    it..

  22. avatar Teppei9asone says:

    There seem to be 6 other BGA footprints, and butterfly labs actually sell
    the ICs, does it mean you can upgrade by buying and reflowing it yourself? 

  23. avatar Mark Engbretsen says:

    What is the mining software you are using in this video?
