On April 6, mining hardware manufacturer MicroBT launched its new generation WhatsMiner M50 series at the Bitcoin 2022 event in Miami.
MicroBT brings a more efficient mining product
MicroBT claims to be “different from other mining hardware manufacturers in the industry” by focusing on full-custom chip design and providing Bitcoin mining hardware only. The new WhatsMiner M50S, M50, and M53 have “deep-dive details of its fifth-generation and highly efficient air cooling and hydro cooling mining hardware.”
As per the press release, WhatsMiner M50 is an energy-efficient air-cooling Bitcoin mining hardware. It is powered by the 5nm processor from Samsung with up to 15% higher efficiency than the last generation M30S++ series. The series boasts a computing power of 126 terrahash/sec (TH/s) at 26 joules/Terrahash (J/TH) of power efficiency.
MicroBT has launched the next generation of hydro cooling mining hardware, WhatsMiner M53, with a computing power of 240 TH/s and power efficiency of 29 J/TH.
The company is known for its WhatsMiner brand, whose M20 series was the world’s best-selling mining hardware. MicroBT, which was the first manufacturer to offer a one-year warranty period in the industry, is confident about its quality and stability.
The WhatsMiner M50 series boasts the most advanced thermal architecture in the WhatsMiner series, allowing the system to run at higher power for more extended periods of time, indicating that MicroBT has figured out how to stay in business.
Crypto mining attracting big names
Several big players have been eyeing the crypto mining business amid the ongoing massive digital assets adoption. Crypto mining companies have reported a huge surge in their values in the past few years. A few days back, one of the largest chip makers in the world, Intel, unveiled its second-generation “Blockscale” Bitcoin mining chip to improve the energy efficiency of proof-of-work (PoW) tokens.
