From everything i've read it sounds like Bitmain have created a pretty efficient machine.

In terms of any 'next' product from them, is it possible for them to improve upon the machine from a technical standpoint?

For example smaller chips etc?

Would be great to get an understanding of product cycles etc but guess there's too many factors that come into it.

Thanks

We don't know more about it than public info is, how would we?

I just say that there is a long way from the current 16nm node process to the next one (10nm,  7nm ?) .

We can always speculate, but I don't see the specific point with this thread?

^ SO yeah this is exactly what i'm after actually and the point of the thread. What info do you have that makes you think this? Based on this we might be able to work out rough times for next batch.

Thanks

It is widely known that when it comes to the chip manufacturing, Bitcoin ASIC chips, Litecoin ASIC chips, CPU chips, GPU chips or what ever, we are currently at best in the 16nm process.

With all the problems in the current 16nm process, I'd say even big companies like Intel, Samsung etc. are a long way from smaller node process like 10nm, 7nm..
And Bitcoin ASIC chip manufacturers like Bitmain, Canaan, BW..  and Litecoin ASIC chip manufacturers like Bitmain, Innosilicon, BW ... are in a much smaller position compared to these guys.
It is going to take time for ASICs to get to those smaller node processes.

We are going to see more current generation Antminers for some time.
