Evaluation on Bitcoin Miner Antminer S15 IMG 52

As a scientific company dedicating to high-speed, low-power customized chip design and development, Bitmain has successfully designed and mass-produced multiple models of ASIC customized chips and all-in-one systems. Bitmain was established in 2013 and introduced the first-generation bitcoin miner of Antminer series, Antminer S1, in the same year. With over five years of development, the bitcoin miner of Antminer series has undergone iterations of multiple models of S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S7 and S9. The latest models are S15 and T15, which were on sale on November 8, 2018.

Antminer S15 adopts a brand-new 7nm chip manufacturing technology and the official website evaluates model S15 as Long-term Mining, Energy Efficiency, which emphasizing the features of “high performance with durability and energy efficiency with less power consumption”. According to the parameters on the official website, Antminer S15 has two types of built-in mining modes: High-Performance Mode and Energy-Saving Mode. As per the official parameters, the energy/hash ratio is 57 J/T in High-Performance Mode and 50 J/T in Energy-Saving Mode. Compared to the bitcoin miners on current market, such an energy/hash ratio has set a record high.

Install AsicBoost Firmware with Ultra Detailed Graphic Instructions IMG 23

Bitmain has recently released its firmware for the popular Antminer S9 to enable what is called “overt AsicBoost”. What is AsicBoost? In short, AsicBoost is best described as a “mathematical trick”. Instead of taking a huge amount of computation, miners can use the technique to whittle down their choices of potential hashes that enable them to solve a puzzle and claim bitcoin’s rewards.

Antminer A3 BLAKE2b ASIC Miner for Siacoin Mining IMG 31

This tutorial is intended for the Antminer A3 BLAKE2b ASIC Miner for Siacoin Mining which is a BLAKE2 miner manufactured by BITMAIN. BLAKE2 is a cryptographic hash function faster than MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2, and SHA-3, yet is at least as secure as the latest standard SHA-3. BLAKE2 has been adopted by many projects due to its high speed, security, and simplicity. The Antminer A3 supports all the crypto coins based on the BLAKE2b algorithm, such as Siacoin.
