Notes: BitFury Group considers this their Gen 1, Rev 1 product.
It was originally designed at 65nm but die-shrunk down to 55nm[7].
It was widely released in at least 3 different packages/markings: The 'beta' / 5Ghash (estimated hash rate before practical tests) markings on a sawn package, BioInfoBank and CCCP markings on a punched package.
High efficiency claims were made by BitFury[8] that at this time seem unrealistic. BitcoinTalk user vs3 holds a large collection of technical information about this chip in his NanoFury repository[9]
