The fabless semiconductor manufacturer HashFast Technologies today announced that they will start manufacturing their application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) mining chip, the Golden Nonce (GN). Uniquify has been signed to layout and manufacture the extreme performance chip that will be housed in their Baby Jet rig.
The 28nm chip performs 400 gigahashes per second and consumes less than 1.0 watts per gigahertz. If users wish, they can underclock the GN chip to maximize power saving, or overclock it via on-die thermal controls for maximum performance.
