The Launch of Next-Generation Antminer S7 Bitcoin Miner is announced by Bitmain
“When comparing hashrate to weight, size, or power consumption, the S7 comes out ahead.”
The Antminer S7 is a denser mining rig than previous models.
Whereas the S5 used 60 chips per miner, the Antminer S7 uses 162 of the BM1385 chips.
Each S7 will be able to generate upwards of 4,850 GH/s while only needing approximately 0.25 J/GH of power.
‘We’ll continue to make our machines available to Joe Miner …’
Bitmain has deployed a different strategy than other Bitcoin hardware companies has.
