Canaan Creative has announced heir second generation 7nm AvalonMiner ASIC – the A10 that should be capable of delivering 31 THS SHA256 hashrate with 1736W of power usage (56 W/THS energy efficiency). The 30 THS efficiency with 1700 Watts of power usage was supposed to be delivered last year with the announcement of the first 7nm ASIC miner – the Canaan Avalon A9, however the first generation 7nm hardware was not able to deliver what was promised. Not to mention it came at a bad time for the mining and crypto in general – a declining profit and the whole crypto market going down, so the demand for the new devices was really low. Instead of 30 THS, the AvalonMiner A921 was only capable of delivering 20 THS at 1700W of power usage, so the new 2nd gen A10 devices should finally be able to deliver that level of power efficiency. No word yet on pricing and exact availability dates, the official website still does not list the new devices and Canaan is talking about March availability and they just made the announcement at the end of the month, so we should wait a bit more for additional details…

The Canaan Creative has released some information about their upcoming next generation Avalon A9 Bitcoin ASIC miners based on 7nm technology that will supposedly provide 30 THS hashrate with 1720 Watts of power usage. This will make the Avalon A9 much more interesting that the recently announced GMO B3 as well as the Innosilicon Terminator 2 Turbo that will not be able to provide such level of efficiency. Of course we are yet to see what will Bitmain be offering as they are still not responding to the competition with a more up to date product in the 20-30 THS range, but for now the new Avalon seems to be the most interesting efficiency wise. The price of the Avalon A9 is also going to play an important role and we are yet to see when it will be available and for how much…

Another interesting information coming from the company is their upcoming line of TV sets – LB4318 with built-in ASIC mining chips. The TV set is with a 43-inch 4K panel and features 26x A3210 16nm mining chips providing 2.8 THS hashrate with 100 Watts per THS power usage. It is definitely an interesting product with different purpose that comes with built-in mining capabilities and will show if there is going to be interest in such a range of devices in general. There has been talk about connected consumer-oriented devices with built-in crypto mining capabilities for quite some time, but we are yet to see them on the market.
