Would it not be gen 2. Huh  The original block erupters where BE100 and these are BE200.  Why does everyone refer to it as gen 3?  Did something come before the

BE100?  Maybe FPGA?

Can anyone enlighten me?

Chips on the V1/V2 blades were BE100 - gen 1. Chips on the V3 cubes were BE100 but shrunk - gen 2. Chips on Tubes are BE200s - gen 3.

Hmm.  What process where the V3 cubes?  65nm?  I always thought they where the same chips.  But I have never seen a V3 cube in person.

V3 cubes.. huh?  I've never heard of that.  I was under the assumption that they started developing Gen2 (~65-90nm) and it got scrapped in favor of 40nm.

Cubes... Its just what I called them [regarding V1 and V2 blades]. Even if there wasn't a shrink, the W/GH dropped from 10 to 6.5 which was large enough to consider it a non incremental step. Anyway, why do people get so hung up on my unofficial, colloquial naming schemes?

I was just curious.  I am a hardware guy so the details of this stuff interest me.
