The firm “committed to securing the Bitcoin Blockchain as one of the industry’s leading infrastructure providers for bitcoin mining”- Bitfury Group was thrilled to announce it has launched a new Bitcoin mining ASIC dubbed “Bitfury Clarke”.

Bitfury becomes the latest company to release a Bitcoin mining ASIC. According to an official press release, the new product know as Bitfury Clarke has the purpose of boosting Bitcoin mining due to its advanced assembly process and an advantageous price/quality ratio:

“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.”

Additionally, the company will provide consulting services as well as “enterprise-grade professional customer support” to any user who chooses to use the new ASIC within their mining business.

The new ASIC has no obvious flaws

CEO of Bitfury Valery Vavilov is excited about the company’s new product. In his opinion, ASIC’s design process was carefully developed so that it would be faultless.
