There's not much substance, but a little blurb about 1:30 in the vid on the next gen controllers.

"Due to the success that Bitmain has had with Xilinx Zynq SoCs in it’s Antminer S9 Bitcoin mining machine, the company is now exploring the use of Xilinx 20nm and 16nm devices (UltraScale and UltraScale+) for future, planned AI platforms and products."

Don't want to rain on anybody's parade, by the Xilinx SoC (System on Chip) is the controller for the S9, not anything related to the SHA-256 hashing chips. They could readily replace the Xylinx with something compatible and still retain the rest of S9 frame and hashing boards.

I don't think this says anything about a possible S11 miner.

Absolutely, which is why I simply stated future. It's just nice to glean some (any) sort of news about our favorite vendor Smiley
