Intel® Blockscale™ ASIC (BTC)
Intel’s Blockscale (codenamed Bonanza) is a relatively small, SHA-256 (Secure Hash Algorithm-256) hardware accelerator for blockchain proof-of-work consensus applications. Being an ASIC, the chips have been designed from the ground up with these workloads in mind, sacrificing the versatility of CPUs and GPUs in exchange for much higher throughput and power efficiency compared to other mining approaches.
We have worked diligently and secured an agreement with Intel to provide this revolutionary and disruptive next-gen SHA256 mining solution to customers. Details on pricing, availability and order quantities will be available closer to launch at the end of Q4 2022.

Power Consumption: 4.8 – 22.7 W
Power Efficiency: Up to 26 J/TH
Operating Temperature (Tj): 50⁰C to 85⁰C
