there was some kind of dif increase factored into that but when a new gen of ASICs hit LOL it just goes nuts
not really, now that we are on custom bare metal the easy gains are had
from here on we have die shrinks and incremental tweaks to architecture, expect future gains more in line with Moore's law, not the kind of quantum leaps we saw from CPU to GPU to ASIC
I fully expect to purchase 28-25nm 4u rack infrastructure late this summer that will operate profitably, albeit marginally so, for 3 years or better.
