According to the Cointelegraph, Bitmain CEO Jihan Wu said in his recent speech that the new chip combines “over a billion transistors” using a special technology with low power consumption.
Recall that recently Bitmain announced the release of a firmware update with support for AsicBoost for all Antminer models, which, according to the company, should increase the “efficiency” of devices.
