Intel Launches Prototype ASIC Miner More Efficient than Competitors

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Intel offers customers 15% more efficient devices than market leaders with its new mining chip unveiled last month, Tom’s Hardware has reported.

During the ISSCC international conference, Intel introduced the Bonanza Mine chip and a prototype of a miner based on it. A representative of the company stated the equipment provides an energy efficiency of 55 J/TH with a hashrate of 47.7 TH/s. This performance is comparable to devices from Bitfury and Canaan, but significantly inferior to the flagships of MicroBT and Bitmain.

As it has been reported, the crypto miner provides a hashrate of 135 TH/s and an energy efficiency of 26 J/TH. For comparison, the Antminer S19 Pro from Bitmain is 110 TH/s and 30 J/TH, respectively. This means that BMZ2 outperforms it by about 15%, and the prototype is almost twice as efficient.
