The Bitfury Clarke application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) chip “offers the strongest performance among bitcoin mining chips and is unparalleled in efficiency,” the company claims in a blog post.
The new chip, according to the firm, is customized for the SHA256 algorithm, boasts power efficiency up to 55 mW/GH and a hashrate up to 120 GH/s. It has 8,154 rolled hashing cores, fully integrated controllable clock generation and an integrated power-on-reset circuit.
In a statement, CEO Valery Vavilov said that the company “is looking at all factors, including silicon packaging, chip efficiency, optimal power distribution, cooling designs and speed of development when designing our mining hardware.”
“We think that this will lead to solutions that deliver the best [return-on-investment] to our customers — regardless of ASIC size.”
