Crypto Miner Hive Cuts Computing Power Forecast for Intel Chip-Based Rigs
Some of the machines have already been installed, with the rest expected by the end of January. The rigs’ computing power of about 109 terahahes/second (TH/s) per machine is a little over that of Bitmain’s Antminer S19 Pro, released in 2020. Hive didn’t divulge the energy efficiency or cost of the rigs, key metrics for miners struggling to keep up with high power costs. The Intel chip is touted as environmentally friendly, indicating that efficiency will be its strong suit.
