The largest manufacturer mining equipment unveiled a new Bitmain ASIC chips built for 7-nm FinFET technology. The new chips are called BM1391 and is designed for cryptocurrency mining at the SHA256 algorithm and will be used in the next generation ASIC miners from the company.

It is reported that each chip BM1391 used more than a billion transistors, and the chip itself is optimized for maximum efficiency. The ratio of performance to energy consumption, according to Bitmain, is 42 J/TH.

Note that Bitmain took a leading position in the market of mining bitcoins through its device Antminer S9. Recently, however, the position of the company deteriorated in connection with the emergence of a large number of competing solutions that use the latest technology and offering the best performance.
