On April 7, 2019, Bitmain released Antminer S17 series bitcoin miners, which are built with the Bitmain’s second-generation 7nm BM1397 chips.
Being established in 2006, Innosilicon owns 12 years of experience in IP/IC development and design. Recently, it shifts the focus to the development of cryptocurrency mining devices and has introduced multiple types of ASIC miners based on the algorithms of SHA256, Scrypt, X11, CryptoNight, Blake256, Blake2B, Equihash and CryptoNight. The machines have covered the algorithms of the mainstream cryptocurrencies.
INNOSILICON introduced and started shipment of model T2T-32T, a very good tool for bitcoin mining, in early September, 2018. EastShore will review this product in the following part.
Recently, Bitmain has introduced a new miner for the SHA256 algorithm: the Antminer S9 Hydro, which immediately has attracted widespread attention ever since. We finally witnessed the mass-production of water-cooling miners in the real sense! S9 Hydro miner supports BTC, BCH, DGB and other SHA256 currencies. It adapts to Antminer APW5 silent power supply with low temperature, low noise and dust-free.
As a scientific company dedicating to high-speed, low-power customized chip design and development, Bitmain has successfully designed and mass-produced multiple models of ASIC customized chips and all-in-one systems. Bitmain was established in 2013 and introduced the first-generation bitcoin miner of Antminer series, Antminer S1, in the same year. With over five years of development, the bitcoin miner of Antminer series has undergone iterations of multiple models of S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S7 and S9. The latest models are S15 and T15, which were on sale on November 8, 2018.
Antminer S15 adopts a brand-new 7nm chip manufacturing technology and the official website evaluates model S15 as Long-term Mining, Energy Efficiency, which emphasizing the features of “high performance with durability and energy efficiency with less power consumption”. According to the parameters on the official website, Antminer S15 has two types of built-in mining modes: High-Performance Mode and Energy-Saving Mode. As per the official parameters, the energy/hash ratio is 57 J/T in High-Performance Mode and 50 J/T in Energy-Saving Mode. Compared to the bitcoin miners on current market, such an energy/hash ratio has set a record high.
On May 19th, 2019, MicroBT’s new product launch with the theme of “Ultimate Win-Win, Success Reproduction” was held in Chengdu, China. MicroBT officially released the latest generation of Whatsminer M20 series, a total of five models, equipped with Samsung 8nm chips. Meanwhile, the new LOGO of MircroBT was also revealed which was more vivid with better features.
In September 2018, cryptocurrency hardware manufacturer Canaan announced a novel product-a mining heater. According to official specifications: the product with the model name A851H, has a hash speed of 14.5TH/S@1450w/h, the efficiency ratio is 100w/T and it integrates 104 A3210M chips of 16nm.
In this review we will show as many details as possible.
The Ebit miner is the high-hashrate bitcoin miner released by Ebang Communication Co.,Ltd, a NEEQ-listed company in Zhejiang Province, China. The earliest model of this series of miners was released in 2016 with self-developed bitcoin mining chips.
The latest version of Ebit E9.2 bitcoin miner for this evaluation can reach 12TH/s at the energy consumption ratio of 140W/T. Now, EastShore will bring you the latest evaluation as follows.
Fusionsilicon X7, a Dash miner based on X11 algorithm, was released by Shenzhen Fusionsilicon Company in early 2019. Before we start to unbox the miner, we’d better firstly understand what Dash stands for.
Innosilicon has recently released several models of T2T series bitcoin miners in the market: such as T2T+, T2TZ, T2TZS, T2TH, T2THS and T2THU, which can be divided into SI and SII according to different production batches. The model for trial experience today is the latest bitcoin miner Innosilicon T2THU-30T.
