The crypto mining market is becoming increasingly competitive with a series of new launches.

Innosilicon Launches Equihash A9++ ZMaster ASIC Miner
This new miner is the successor of the A9 ZMaster from 2018 that had 50 Ksol/s hash rate for Equihash. Now, the new miner comes with 140 Ksol/s hash rate and 1550 W of power usage. As Cryptomining Blog explains, the miner does not seem to be much more efficient than the previous device, however, it is three times faster with three times as much the power usage.
It is worth mentioning that the firm listed the Innosilicon Equihash A9+ ZMaster but it offered 120 Ksol/s with 1550 W consumption. Nonetheless, the firm decided to unlist it due to its inefficiency.
The new Innosilicon Equihash A9++ ZMaster is currently available for a price of $1580 without the power supply. This miner offers very similar specifications to the miner that Bitmain offers with the AntMiner Z11. It is worth mentioning that the A9++ ZMaster could be shipped faster and investors could have their devices much time before than the one released by Bitmain.
Innosilicon is currently increasing the number of chips that the miner has with a bigger device. Moreover, the miner has a net weight of 11 kilograms and an ambient temperature between 0ºC and 40ºC.
Bitmain and the whole cryptocurrency mining industry have been affected by the bear market during 2018 when Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital currencies lost between 80% and more than 90% of their value. Now, Bitmain is trying to recover part of the market lost to other companies selling ASIC devices.
