MicroBT WhatsMiner M10 Bitcoin ASIC Offering 33 THS at 2145 Watts

WhatsMiner M10 is a Chinese Bitcoin ASIC miner that is apparently starting to ship just now that promises performance comparable to other top SHA256 ASICs available on the market at the moment. At 33 THS with 2145 Watts of power usage it is surprisingly efficient for 16nm chips available at a price of $2000-1800 USD including a power supply. What is more interesting though is that MicroBT, the manufacturer of the WhatsMiner, has just announced their next product called WhatsMiner M10S that will supposedly be able to deliver up to 55 THS with about 3500W of power usage at 65W/THASH or 44 THS with about 2600W at 60W/THASH power usage.

Whatsminer M10 Specifications:
– Chips: 315 * 16nm ASIC
– Hashrate: 33TH/s (+/- 5%) (depends on cooling)
– Power Consumption: 65 W/THS, 2145 W per miner (+/- 10% )
– Power Supply Unit: WhatsPower P5, 2500w, 93% efficiency 220V
– Operating Temperature: -5C ~ 40C
– Dimension: 34cm x 20cm x 17cm
– Weight: 8.55 kg

The only problem with ASIC miners going forward with higher performance is the increased power usage and that is causing trouble for people that are running smaller mining farms, let alone small home miners that do not have the infrastructure available that is capable of handling this high power usage per device. Anyway, with the current market situation it is arguable what is wiser to do – invest in Bitcoin mining equipment or buy directly BTC and hold, that is if you are investing fiat, not crypto.

Bitmain just launched their 7nm chip. Like I said, they are waiting until the last fool throwing out 14 and 16nm chips.
Now they will show all again that they bought unrentable hardware, if you dont buy with them.

Compare: Halong has 10nm chips from Samsung and is almost same efficient then 16nm chips from Bitmain.
Its about the chip design and just gaining speed with going smaller is nice – but design will win – in this case Bitmain will win.
