Canaan AvalonMiner A921 Bitcoin ASIC Miner: Quality Crypto Mining Specs?
Canaan Creative has decided to upload the specifications of its latest miner launched to the market, the AvalonMiner A921. This Bitcoin ASIC miner should be soon available for users to purchase it.
The first model A921 will be delivering 20 THS with 1700 watts of power usage. The hash rate can have a small variation between 5% and 10% and its consumption could reach an increase of 20%.
There are some users that are not giving positive opinions about this miner since the market was expecting better specifications. Nonetheless, the next models that are going to be released might see an increase in power usage and THS.
The net weight of the Canaan AvalonMiner A921 is 5.5 kg, operates with temperatures between -5 and 30 degrees Celsius and has a power efficiency of 0.085 J/GigaHash Wall-Plug.
At the moment, the market is down, which could be determining at the time of purchasing cryptocurrency mining hardware. In some specific cases it can be cheaper to directly purchase the asset rather than mining it. Since the beginning of the year that the virtual currency market is in a bear trend that does not seem to have an end. Companies need to offer good prices rather than just improving the specs.
Other miners such as the recently announced 14nm BitFury Clarke ASIC chip looks much more profitable and interesting than this one. However, the last miners mentioned might not be available for purchasing at least in a short period of time.
