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 show you the Bitcoin Wallet software.

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
