Bitmain Mining Company Presented Antminer Z11 For ZCash

The largest crypto currency mining equipment producer Bitmain presented Antminer Z11 allowing to mine ZCash and other crypto currencies based on Equihash algorithm. The company claims that a new miner is 3x more powerful than its predecessor.

Thus, Antminer Z11 hashing power is 135 KSol/s. Its energy performance is 10,50 J/KSol.

Note that the miner is based on a 12 nm chip developed with the use of Bare Die casting technology.

To recap, the previous version of Antminer – Z9 mini – was presented in May, last year.
