VMC closes deal for 28nm ASIC chips in 24.5 TH/sec miners

Virtual Mining Corporation (VMC) has closed a deal with fabless semiconductor firm eASIC to use its 28 nm ASIC chip in its mining boxes. The boxes will be expandable up to 24.5 TH/sec, VMC says. The Springfield, Missouri ASIC miner manufacturer will use the Nextreme-3 design from eASIC in its Fast-Hash One mining boxes, which it says will ship in the last half of November. There will be three ASIC miners, allowing for different maximum hash rate capacities. The Nextreme-3 chip provides a nominal hash rate of 16 GH/sec, or 20 GH/sec overclocked, and consumes under 12 W per chip, equating to....

Butterfly Labs Monarch miner announcement angers customers

Article updated on 27th August at 14:37 BST. Butterfly Labs has announced a new PCI bitcoin mining card, named Monarch, based on the new 28nm technology. Butterfly Labs claims the Monarch will achieve 600 GH/s and consume 350W. The release has courted controversy with customers who are still awaiting delivery of their longstanding 65nm-based products. The Monarch has been optimised to work when connected to a PCIe slot, however, it also has a USB port, which allows it to be used with Windows and Linux computers and even Android devices. Butterfly Labs boasts that the card will achieve 600....

HexFury: The First 11gh/s+ USB Miner

The HexFury is a new USB miner on the Bitcoin mining scene that throws out the window the 5 gh/s barrier that seemed to be the limit with USB powered miners. It uses 6 BitFury chips and the OneString board design to achieve a high output while drawing the small amount of power available to it through a typical USB powered hub. Rafal from ASIC Runner sent me a sample of one the first production units. HexFury. I have to say I am impressed. It is still tiny. Nearly as small as my BiFury 5 gh/s unit and very cleanly built. I plugged it in and the driver set it up automatically. Then firing up....

KnC Miner Will Build a New 20MW Data Center in The Node Pole

Global Bitcoin mining equipment company KnC Miner announced in a press release that they will grow their business with a 20 MW datacenter in Boden, in The Node Pole region near the Arctic Circle in Sweden. The investment - called Boden 2 - bring their site to a total of 30 MW and 15 000 square meters.

KnC Miner co-founder Sam Cole said: "We have the planet's most efficient bitcoin cloud mining operation. Our Clear Sky....

KnCMiner Delivers Updates on Neptune Miner

KnCMiner customers: pay attention! The company today released a statement on the progress of their highly-anticipated Neptune miners (just to make that point, the company sold $8 million worth of the miner - in one day). The first point in KnC's update relates to the 20nm chips: We over engineer our chips and don't promise anywhere near the actual 100% performance they could possibly achieve. This enables us to use the latest and greatest chips safely. So when you read about much longer timelines for this technology it's important to note they are not our timelines. We have a very....
