Miners Doubt The Efficiency Of New Technology From Bitmain
By Anna Martynova

In early 2021, Bitmain will release mining equipment with a 5nm ASIC chip. Miners have expressed their concerns about their efficiency and performance. The company's current lineup uses relatively larger chips of 7 or 12 nm.

Potential buyers confirmed their lack of interest in 5nm mining rigs. Thomas HELLER, former director of F2Pool, added that betting huge on new 5nm machines is risky as there are other alternatives and even used options are still available in aftermarket and from ASIC manufacturers themselves.

However, if it is managed to launch 5nm ASIC miners, it will create serious competition, since the new equipment will provide significant savings in power consumption, with the same hash rate as the latest flagships.
