The press service of the Japanese conglomerate informs that GMO Internet Group specialists have completed the development of 12-nanometer Min Fin-FET Compact chips (FFC). According to the creators, the chips will not go on sale, but they will become an important transitional link on the way to creating 7-nanometer chips, which the company is going to use to produce ASIC-devices.
The created chips will primarily be designed to increase their own capacities, and whether they will go on sale until it is reported. However, the postscript at the bottom of the official statement on the official website reads "some conditions may change without additional notice", and this definitely means that at some point the developers may change their mind. Testing of 7-nanometer chips is planned to begin in the spring of 2018.
A few years earlier, the company announced its intentions to take the leading positions in the field of mining of crypto-currencies and technologies of the distributed registry. In 2016, developers of GMO Internet reported the launch of the block-platform, which allows building distributed applications based on Ethereum. In the same year the beta testing of the platform began.
A year later the company built its own data center for mining, the feature of which was the use of renewable resources – thus, GMO significantly reduced the costs for the production of crypto currency. The next step was the development of its own mining chips and the widespread introduction of distributed registry technology and the popularization of the crypto currency among employees who were promised to pay part of the salary in Bitcoins.
