Bitfury Group introduced a new generation of hardware for bitcoin mining under the control of the integrated microcircuit Bitfury Clarke ASIC.

Five successful generations of Bitfury mining chips are the basis for new Bitfury Clarke ASIC. According to the developers, the new chip has the highest performance characteristics among the bitcoin mining hardware.

14nm Bitfury Clarke ASIC is fully optimized for Bitcoin Mining on SHA256. The hashing capacity is up to 120 Gigahets per second (GH / s) with energy costs of only 55 miljoules per gigahash (mJ / GH). The minimum required mains voltage is 0.3 V.

In addition to selling Bitfury Clarke chips, Bitfury also integrates Bitfury Clarke into other hardware, including its own servers for mining and BlockBoxes, as well as in the mining centers in Canada, Norway, Iceland and Georgia.
