Bitmain released their AntMiner S5 Bitcoin miner in late 2014. At that time, it was one of the fastest and most efficient ASIC miners available, rivalled by the Spondoolies-Tech SP20.
As a product of a 28nm fabrication process, the S5 can’t be reasonably expected to compete with modern 16nm or 14nm ASIC designs in terms of hashrate or power efficiency.
