400 GH/s Bitcoin Miner springs to life with Raspberry Pi

Bitfury-400GHs

Bitfury’s 400GH/s Bitcoin mining rig uses 16 individual hashing boards controlled by a single Raspberry Pi –

BItfury ASIC chips use a 55nm process and are sold running at an estimated 1.56 GH/s per chip, with demonstrated performance up to 2.7 GH/s. Although they are clocked slower than Butterfly Lab’s 4 GH/s chips, they will run 4x more efficiently at 0.8 Watts/Ghps. Power efficiency will be a deciding factor in a bitcoin miner’s longevity as profitability narrows with increasing difficulty.

  1. I hope the Adafruit RGB Negative 16×2 LCD+Keypad Kit for Raspberry Pi is restocked soon! I’ve been waiting to build one of these!
