Intel Launches New Bitcoin Mining Chip, Blockscale


  • Intel has announced details for its upcoming bitcoin mining chip, the Intel Blockscale ASIC, which will ship in Q3 2022.
  • Intel’s chip, focused on energy efficiency and sustainability, will operate with up to 26 J/TH of power efficiency.
  • The chipmaker will supply customers with only the ASIC ship itself, instead of shipping a fully-fledged mining system as currently common in the industry.

Intel today announced details for its new bitcoin mining chip, the Intel Blockscale ASIC, which seeks to increase energy efficiency of Proof-of-Work (PoW) mining through the company’s decades of research and development in related areas, as per a press release sent to Bitcoin Magazine.

“The Intel Blockscale ASIC is going to play a major role in helping bitcoin mining companies achieve both sustainability and hash rate scaling objectives in the years ahead,” said Jose Rios, general manager of Blockchain and Business Solutions in the Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group at Intel.

Intel will provide its customers with only the ASIC chip itself, instead of delivering a complete ASIC mining system as is currently common in the industry.

Each Blockscale ASIC chip will deliver up to 580 gigahashes per second (GH/s) of hash rate with up to 26 joules per terahash (J/TH) of power efficiency and support up to 256 integrated circuits per chain, in addition to featuring on-chip temperature– and voltage–sensing capabilities.
