Abstract : The 5nm products were still in R&D and the verification stage, and did not have the conditions to go to market in the short term.
September 9 (ChainDD) The Antminer sales team today released the "Clarification of Rumors on the Pre-sale of New Antminer 5nm Products". The clarification announcement pointed out that 5nm products were still in R&D and the verification stage, and did not have the conditions to go to market in the short term.
Besides, 5nm is the latest chip production process, and a large number of new technologies applied need to have a new architecture to match it. The mining machine chip developed based on this process will require a large number of detailed and complete design and verification work.
Therefore, although the R&D cost is relatively high, Bitmain's first-generation experimental 5nm product BM1360 chip is only used for internal verification to solve the performance and reliability problems caused by the new process, new technology, and new architecture. There is no plan to release or sell it to the market.
