Is this small box "bringing up" the VGA from the mines?
Bitmain announced the Antminer E3 mining machine. Why is this interesting? Let's say right away!
Bitmain is not an unknown name in this genre, formerly a bitcoin's "virtual slice". The new machine, Antminer E3, was created for the production of crypto money under the name Ethereum. The item's price is expected to be $ 800 (AMD Radeon RX 580 in January), so much money is the 180 MH / s hash-rate - it's a fraction of the card mentioned above. An important factor is the consumption of 800 watts.
Bitmain has begun to pre-order pre-orders on the mining machine, delivery is expected sometime in July. As you can see, Antminer E3 is much more economical than GPU-based mining, so we expect it to be a serious demand for it.
