  • Best Bitcoin Mining Equipment 2017

    In this article we have compiled a list with the best mining equipment Bitcoin of the present time . If you want to enter this 2017 mining Bitcoin, you have arrived at the place indicated.

    ASIC Mining Equipment

    First of all, we must clarify that they are the ASIC mining teams . An Integrated Circuit for Specific Applications (or ASIC) is a custom integrated circuit for a particular use, rather than intended for general purpose purposes. They are used for a specific function and little or no use for other tasks. An ASIC mining team is exclusively used to solve blocks of Bitcoin.

    Therefore, specialized Bitcoin mining systems can solve Bitcoin blocks much faster and use less electricity or energy than other solutions such as CPUs, GPUs or FPGAs.

    But, is it profitable to mine Bitcoins with these equipments? To answer this question we have to take into account 2 factors: the cost of the equipment and its electricity consumption. If the cost of electricity in your country is low enough and you can get the right hardware at a good price, then Bitcoin mining is for you.

    Another aspect to take into account before deciding for one of these teams is their Hash rate . The hash rate is the unit of measure of the processing power of the Bitcoin network. The Bitcoin network must perform intensive mathematical and cryptographic operations for security purposes. For example, when the network reaches a hash rate of 10 Th / s, it could do 10 trillion calculations per second. Thus, mining equipment with the highest hash rates (computing power) are able to complete a Bitcoin block in much less time than equipment with a low hash rate.

    In conclusion: the higher the hash rate, the greater the number of mined Bitcoins and the less time required to achieve this.

    Without further ado, let's start:

    Bitmain Antminer S9
    antminer s9

    Hashrate: 14 TH 
    Price: approx. 1500 $

    The Antminer S9 is the latest product line of the company Bitmain. With a hashrate of 14 TH / s and a price of $ 2100 this is one of the best machines on the market  for the mining of homemade bitcoin. We estimate that throughout 2017, the S9 will remain one of the most competitive machines in the cost curve.

    The 16 nm manufacturing process used in the manufacture of S9 is a major improvement over the 28 nm design common to other modern mining devices. Although a 10nm process is on the horizon by the end of 2017, further increases beyond that remain theoretical. In addition, the design and manufacture of any 10nm Bitcoin mining hardware is likely to take at least 1 or 2 years.

    The S9 has more hashing power  than any previous device; A massive 14 TH / s (TeraHash per second). With a total of 189 chips, distributed in 3 circuit boards, combine to achieve this phenomenal hashrate. A single S9 drive has a hashrate equivalent to the maximum capacity of the entire Bitcoin network from its bootstrapping to mid-2012.

    The state-of-the-art manufacturing process is what makes the S9 the most energy efficient mining device to date. It uses just 0.1 jules per Gigahash, making it about 2.5 times more efficient than the Antminer S7. The total power consumption of the device runs at around 1350W. (Consumes about 300 W more than the S7)

    The price of an S9 unit is around $ 1500 (power source not included)

    Canaan Avalon 741

    Hashrate: 7,3 TH 
    Price: 818 $

    The bitcoins mining market has been stagnant in the last 12 months for a number of reasons, requiring users to remain more patient than usual due to the scarcity of new options in this already limited showcase. But at the beginning of the year, news can change the landscape for those who did not expect major changes in 2017, and it is precisely the return of the Avalon miner, this time from the Chinese company Canaan.

    The AvalonMiner 741 is a 4.8 kg unit with dimensions of 40 x 21 x 22 cm, which makes it a practical, lightweight miner ideal for running bitcoins mining both at home and on a large scale.

    The team has a total of 88 chips of 16nm each, to add a processing power of 7.3 TH / sec and an energy consumption of approximately 1150 Watts. The launch price is US $ 818 and has a guarantee of 90 days from the moment the user receives the miner.

    Bitmain Antminer R4

    Hashrate: 8,6 TH 
    Price: approx. $ 1100

    The Antminer R4 is the latest and exclusive product of the company Bitmain. The R4 reaches 8.6 TH / s with an efficiency of 0.098 J / GHs, making it the second fastest miner behind Antminer S9 and just ahead of Antminer S7. The R4 uses 126 16-bit Bitmain BM1387 ASIC chips. The BM1387 chip is built using TSMC's latest 16MM FinFET technology.

    One of the most unique features of Antminer R4 is that it was designed to ensure the minimum sound possible with maximum hash speed. The Antminer R4 replaces the traditional fan with a system of rotary blades. The traditional fan has been the biggest source of noise for other mining equipment. The R4 fan is similar to the fan of a quiet split air conditioner and reduces the noise of a standard miner by 50% to a noise level of 51 db. The fan speed is controlled automatically, ensuring that the noise is regulated.

    With a hash rate of 8.6 TH / s, the R4 is the second most powerful miner on the market, behind the Antminer S9. It has an energy consumption of approximately 845 W using an APW5 PSU power supply.

    Leaving aside the price we have that the R4  is the best bitcoin mining equipment for the home that there is today. Consider an investment of approximately $ 1,100 for the R4 and $ 240 for the PSU of APW5.

    Canaan Avalon 721 (7)

    Hashrate: 6.0 TH  
    Price: 681 $ 

    The return of the Avalon miner to the market breaks the monopoly that Bitmain has inherited until after the departure of the rest of the manufacturers, so that we can begin to dream of a competition in the sector that can offer us better options every time.

    In a very unusual move, Avalon, the company that first introduced ASIC chips to Bitcoin mining, launched a new miner at the end of 2016. The AvalonMiner 721 (or more commonly known as Avalon 7) seems to be a minor upgrade from its predecessor, the Avalon 6.

    The AvalonMiner 721 incorporates the latest A3212 processor using the 16 nm TSMC process with Smart Layout, the AvalonMiner 721 contains 72 A3212 chips in each unit providing a consistent 6 Terahash per second (THS) at 900 Watts, all designed for long-lasting operation.

    Any good 1100W power supply will work with the Avalon 7. The unit uses about 1050 watts when using a platinum rated PSU and is quiet enough to run at home. It is also possible to reduce the base frequency to reduce the level of noise and heat generated.

    Canaan sells the Avalon 721 for $ 681 from its website.

    Bitmain Antminer S7

    Hashrate: 4,73 TH   
    Price: approx. $ 700 

    The BitMaster S7 AntMiner has proven to be so popular since its launch in mid-2015 that it has now reached its 19th production batch. The S7 assumed market dominance for a good reason: It offers a high hashrate for the amount of energy it consumes. In fact many industrial mining farms still continue to operate with AntMiner S7s racks. The S7 is also a popular choice among amateur miners for its reasonable price and good performance.

    The S7 is powered by a 28nm BM1385 ASIC processor. 135 of these chips are distributed through 3 boards and are kept cool by double fans (a single fan in the case of the most recent version). The strong metal housing features a tongue and groove system that allows the orderly arrangement of multiple miners.

    The AntMiner S7 reaches a hashrate of 4.73 TH / s (5 in its most recent revision) and consumes a minimum of 1293W. Its price is around 700 $.

    Canaan (Block C) Avalon 6

    Hashrate: 3.5 TH   
    Price: approx. $ 400

    Recently the Canaan Creative company took over the problematic brand Avalon. The company is back with great desire to offer equipment of good performance and that are competitive in the market, something that the users of the mining will surely be grateful for.

    The AvalonMiner 6 , contains eighty 18nm A3218 chips, running at 500 MHz for a respectable 3.5 TH / s hashing approaching the AntMiner S7. The Avalon 6 requires a Raspberry Pi (B / B +) or a TP-Link TL-WR703N as controller. Up to 50 miners of a Raspberry Pi can be kept.

    Any good 1100W power supply will work with the Avalon 6 . The unit uses about 1050 watts when using a platinum rated PSU and is quiet enough to run at home. It is also possible to reduce the base frequency to reduce the level of noise and heat generated.

    The Avalon 6 is available from $ 400 through Amazon.

    Bitmain Antminer S7-LN



    Bitmain Antminer S7-LN


    Hashrate: 2,7 TH  
    Price: approx. $ 480 

    The AntMiner S7-LN is the "lite" version of the S7 and comes with an Enermax power supply of 1000W. The S7-LN has fewer chips (90 BM1385 chips instead of 135 regular S7 chips) and as a result, you get just over half the hashrate with about half the power consumption.

    The   S7-LN has a hashrate of approximately 2.7 TH / s, uses about 700W of power and comes with its own power source, priced at $ 291 USD is one of the best options to get started in the mine.

    CONCLUSIONS

    In recent months the market for Bitcoin mining equipment has been dominated by Bitmain and its  expensive Antminer S9 . However, earlier this year the Chinese company Canaan has launched what we believe is the best Bitcoin mining equipment today: the Avalon 741 , which you can purchase from the manufacturer's website for $ 818.
