Bitmain Introduces A New 7nm Antminer Hardware
Bitmain, the biggest cryptocurrency mining hardware producer from China, decided to submit a new crypto mining machine. Using special ASIC chips working with SHA256 algorithm, based on 7nm Finfet technology, is ssurely one of the most efficient miner devices of all time.
Bitmain – the giant
We have already written about the Chinese giant Bitmain this year. It’s one of the main companies specializing in mining crypto. It was founded by Jihan Wu and Micree Zhan in 2013. In just a couple of years it managed to become the world’s largest designer of ASIC chips for Bitcoin mining. The company also operates Antpool, one of bitcoin mining pools.
Now, the giant has decided to take a step further and created a new seven-nanometer miner. The release has been announced on the official Twitter page of Bitmain.
We are officially announcing the release of our new 7nm miners which possess industry-leading hash rates designed to mine with the SHA256 algorithm. Two models will be offered, the Antminer S15 and T15. Available for purchase on 11/8. pic.twitter.com/m6HbWGZS1O

The new machine is equipped with next-generation Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) chips. Bitmain assures that these devices use SHA256 algorithm, based on 7nm Finfet technology. The company also outlines that the chips are highly efficient due to their special circuit structure and low power-intensive technology.
The mining leader
Yesterday’s news has been preceded by another announcement on Bitmain’s blog. The company then shared the news about realising a new firmware for one of their existing miners, Antminer S9. It was also said that many other miners (Antminer R4, S9i, S9j, T9 and T9+) would receive this development shortly. Bitminer stressed that all of those improvements were made in order to increase efficiency. It seems like the Chinese giant decided to take over the mining world.
The new miner will be available in two versions (Antminer S15 and T15) after November 8th.
