Pros in mining generally prefer ASIC. ASIC stands for application specific integrated circuit. It may be voice processing or mathematical data processing. But may be also for mining.
The most important criteria for buying an ASIC for crypto currency mining is the return of investment. And the most important proof of this return is hashrate. Hashrate is a computational power measure.
To calculate if a mining device is good for you, you may need to calculate some metrics. For those things coinwarz has a real good tool.
By entering into like hashrate, power consumption and money paid power power, you can calculate how much revenue you will get from your specific hardware. Especially, BTC earned power day calculation is great. You may easily see your revenue.
It seems like there is no much difference compared to last month. But there is an important news from Fortress Technologies that says they bought 4500 machine from Bitmain. The complete model is Bitmain Antminer S19j. They say they increased their hashrate from 195 to 645 Petahash / second. Also before that Fortress also bought 180 Whatsminers M30S. As you know Fortress is a industrial range mining company, meaning they are digging big.
ANTMINER S19j pro (0.0338TH/Wsec)
Antminer is a series from Bitmain. S19j is the latest version. And it has the most THs per second. According to Bitmain, 100TH/sec is possible. 2950w is used to reach that hashrate. So with this model Antminer is getting higher rate of hashrate per second and watt.
75 dB noise you have with this device which seems same for most devices.
WHATSMINER M30S++ (0.0323TH/Ws)
Miner that uses 8nm Samsung chip. 110TH/sec. It consumed 3410 watt for that. There good thing is that it comes with on top power supply so you don’t need extra. The company says that anyone can start mining in half an hour with this asic. Because you just need power and internet then you can enter its GUI via its IP address. That is all to start working with Whatsminer asic.
AVALONMINER 1246 (0.0263TH/Ws)
One of the different feature from Avalon miner is that it had artificial intelligence chip inside. It makes 75dB noise and it is acceptable. Power supply is within enclosure.
Ebang EBIT E11++ (0.022TH/Ws)
It has 44TH/s with almost 2k watt power consumption . This also had power supply included. 10nm cost is running inside. Noise level is 75dB which is ok for these devices. Please be careful, 75db is acceptable for asic devices but may be high for you. Make sure before buying.
DragonMint T1 (0.011TH/Ws)
According to Halong Mining (producer of the machine), DragonMint T1 is the most efficient mining machine on Earth. But according to TH vs Ws it may not be that much. Definetly in our list from now on but seems like not possible to order from Halong Mining these days since you can only added to waitlist. Another thing is that you can only make payment with BTC on that site. Another rumour on this device is that they spent 30 million dollars on development of this machine. But their website has no SSL and give some warning. On the other hand you can buy this device from another website https://intelionmine.ru/en/catalog/halong_mining/dragonmint_t1_16th_s/
Hope you liked our list. Please keep following for latest mining device news…
