Bitmain, the bitcoin mining ASIC provider, has launched its newest iteration of AntMiner, newbielink: [nonactive]. The new design squeezes 144 BM1384 chips into the same area that the S5 fit only 60 chips into, representing a significant increase in the amount of processing power, as well as electrical equipment efficiency compared to previous versions and other miners on the market by other companies. At 0.445J/GH, the S5+ is approximately 13% more efficient than its predecessor.

 “The problem at the heart of designing chips for bitcoin mining is the careful balance of performance with electrical consumption. With lower power consumption, miners have lower electricity bills, or they can increase their hashrate without increasing their power expense,” said a Bitmain chip designer in a statement.
