Bitfury Developers Create New Generation Of Bitcoin Miners
Bitfury, a supplier of blockchain solutions and the second largest mining company in the world, has released a new generation of Bitfury Clarke ASIC chips.
This hardware outperforms the previous five models of Bitfury's mining chips, just as other chips for bitcoin mining, by its operational characteristics, developers report on the blog.
The Bitfury Clarke chip is based on 14 nm technology for working with the SHA-256 (Secure Hash Algorithm). The novelty can speed up a hashrate to 120 GH/s a second at low energy costs – 55 mJ per GH/s.
The company will support both corporations and individual users who want to use a new chip for mining.
“Bitfury is looking at all factors, including silicon packaging, chip efficiency, optimal power distribution, cooling designs and speed of development when designing our mining hardware,” said Valery Vavilov, CEO of Bitfury.
In August, the Bitfury team invested in the Russian startup Dbrain, which creates solutions based on artificial intelligence. The mining company promised to provide the project with its DLT platform for the development of private blockchain.
Bitfury also cooperates with the Bermuda authorities in the sphere of public services to register land rights by means of blockchain.
As previously reported, Bitfury reduced the cooling cost with the help of a "magic liquid".
