New Asic Miner from Japan

Post by Lestat9 » Sun May 20, 2018 5:14 pm

There is a company in japan that has invented a 10TH chip that consumes 300 watts..
They start taking orders in some months if not next month
It looks like about the size of a video card and looks like pci connection slots
so its like a green card with a chip in the middle.
So this card basically makes anyone with a asic miner that consumes 1600 watts look like an idiot..
The question is how much will it cost...I bet that stock is hot also...
So this thing does 10Th and only uses 300 watts and you can put it inside your computer maybe able to put a few in one computer.

So if your thinking of getting a miner maybe you should hold off..
V1 of the chip starts taking orders next month and v2 in a few months after.

These are 7nm chips vs Bitmain's 16nm. This is slightly over the *expected* gain from such a node shrinkage. Personally expecting Bitmain to release new miners in July, but we'll see what happens :)

I do look forward to the competition in the space though.

they have been claiming release for almost a year...was supposed to be the end of the year last year...token sale was going to fund it etc
cost? they won't be priced less than anything out there....if they actually make it to market they will be outrageous and they have to pay 2 other partners with IBM in there.
