Bitfury Launches New Suite of Bitcoin Mining Hardware

New “Bitfury Clarke” ASIC Brings Heightened Bitcoin Mining Performance, Profitability

AMSTERDAM — September 19, 2018 — The Bitfury Group today launched a new generation of bitcoin mining hardware, led by its newest bitcoin mining ASIC chip, Bitfury Clarke.

Building on Bitfury’s successful five generations of mining chips, the Bitfury Clarke ASIC offers the strongest performance characteristics among bitcoin mining chips and is unparalleled in performance and efficiency. Aside from selling Bitfury Clarke chipsets, Bitfury is integrating Bitfury Clarke into its other industry-leading bitcoin mining hardware, including its mining servers and BlockBoxes, as well as in its own bitcoin mining centers in Canada, Norway, Iceland and the Republic of Georgia.

“Bitfury is looking at all factors, including silicon packaging, chip efficiency, optimal power distribution, cooling designs and speed of development when designing our mining hardware,” said Valery Vavilov, CEO of Bitfury. “We think that this will lead to solutions that deliver the best ROI to our customers — regardless of ASIC size.”

The 14nm Bitfury Clarke ASIC is fully customized for SHA256 bitcoin mining. It can execute a hashrate up to 120 gigahashes per second (GH/s) and a power efficiency rate as low as 55 millijoules per gigahash (mJ/GH). The supply voltage required by Bitfury Clarke can be as low as 0.3 volts.

Bitfury is the first bitcoin mining provider to include both a full datasheet and reference design with its chipsets. The company will offer enterprise-grade professional customer support and design consulting to any customer looking to integrate the Bitfury Clarke ASIC into their mining operations.
