Innosilicon Terminator 2 (T2) Miner is a new SHA256 ASIC miner for mining Bitcoin (BTC) and other crypto currencies using the same algorithm that uses 10nm production process for the computing chips inside the device. It is not the first ASIC miner to use 10nm process, but it seems that is the next step for achieving higher performance without the need for a lot more power. The Innosilicon Terminator 2 ASIC miner should be capable of delivering 17.2 THS at about 1570W of power usage according to the official specifications of the device.

There is no information about pricing and the official website of the company has not yet started accepting orders for the newly announced device. Halong Mining have recently also announced their DragonMint T2 ASIC miner (still not on sale) that delivers 17 THS at similar power usage and is also based on 10nm (this is also the company that was apparently first with 10nm ASIC miner). We are yet to see a new generation of Bitcoin miners using 10nm production process from other larger ASIC manufacturers such as Bitmain and Canaan, but we can surely expect them to join the fun soon too…

Innosilicon has announced an upgrade to their 30 GHS A5 DashMaster X11 ASIC miner from last year in the form of a new 65 GHS X11 ASIC named Innosilicon A5+ DashMaster. The new device seems a lot like just two of the older devices joined together and the specifications also suggest something like that as well. Anyway, Innosilicon A5+ DashMaster promises 65 GHS X11 hashrate at 1500 Watts of power usage in a single device that will cost you $4200 USD or the respective value in LTC or BTC (the price does not include a power supply). The X11 ASIC market is pretty crowded already and the profitability for mining DASH especially is not very high anyway, but you could look for altcoins that might give you better results.

Innosilicon A5+ DashMaster Specifications:
– Hash Rate: 65GH/s(+/-8%)
– Power Consumption: 1500W +/-8% (at the wall, with 93% efficiency PSU, 25°C temperature )
– Chip Type: A5+ DashMaster ASIC
– Dimensions: Double tube, 265mm(L) x 250mm(W) x 155mm(H)
– Net Weight: 6.02KG(without PSU)
– Operating Temperature: 0°C—85°C (device junction temperature)
– Network Connection: Ethernet
