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 ethereum miner

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.

A ph! have half-time denied the news section of the news. On the one hand, 800W does not consume power, but consumes 800W. So you still have to get the power you need to get your current power consumption 850-900W; and so it will not be 800 $ but a bit more. It has so much power consumption and a well-set 570-580 rig over 200 MH / s. What is a real advantage is the concept of 'start-up' (home, launch, and counting - and then do not have to deal with it), and the price (the aforementioned rigs are somewhat more expensive - though they can still be sold ' raw material 'price, but this box is not very).


I did not read this, it's an interesting addition to the thing. Say goodbye to the current level with a huge advantage (a piece of RX 570 300 is around and its speed is known to be around 30 MH / s). Selling will certainly be difficult, but if you can produce it faster than GPU, you can still do it.
