Canaan Creative Announces New Flagship Avalonminer

Hangzhou-based Canaan Creative recently announced a new range of planned products at a mining summit in Chengdu, including a new flagship mining rig, the Avalonminer A911.

Canaan’s Avalonminer sales director, Chen Feng, stated that the company’s latest miner will provide a maximum hash rate of 18 tera-hashes per second (TH/s), have a power consumption of 1440w, and perform at 80 Watts per THS of power usage. The A911 will be also be powered by Canaan’s recently unveiled 7nm mining chip.

Canaan Purportedly to Develop 5nm Chip

Just two months after showcasing its new 7nm mining chip, Canaan Creative has supposedly announced that it will seek to develop a 5nm mining chip.

The announcement comes after the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the world’s largest semiconductor manufacturer, announced in June that it plans to launch trial production of its “5nm Fin Field-Effect Transistor process technology” during the second half of 2019, with a goal of mass producing the nodes during 2020. At the time, Reuters reported that the company expects to invest $25 billion into developing the technology.

In contrast to TSMC’s 7nm chip, the company’s planned 5nm chip will adopt extreme ultraviolet lithography “for more critical layers to reduce multi-pattern process complexity while achieving aggressive die area scaling.”

New Canaan Products Seek to Expand Internet-of-Things Appliances

Feng also announced Canaan’s intention to launch several new products seeking to further extend its integration of advanced computing technology into household appliances, including a cloud-computing heater and a mobile mining farm dubbed the ‘Avalon Box’. Canaan will also seek to develop an artificial intelligence chip called ‘Kendryte’.

The announcements follow Canaan’s unveiling of the world’s first bitcoin mining television set, the Avalonminer Inside, which was first showcased alongside the company’s 7nm mining chip at a press conference in Hangzhou on the 8th of August.
