Chinese mining equipment manufacturer Innosilicon launch the high-end ASIC miner A11 8GB, which be one of the most effective way to mine ETH and ETC.
Innosilicon A11 is a mining equipment that focuses on mining Ethereum cryptocoin. It has built-in 8GB RAM and 3000W PSU. The miner is capable of generating a record 1500Mh/s hash rate and only consumes 2500 watts of electricity.
The main function of the A11 is 8 GB of RAM, which will allow its owners to mine the second largest cryptocoin in years.
The Ethash consensus algorithm uses DAG files, which are blocks of data loaded into RAM before mining starts. On the Ethereum blockchain, the size of the DAG file increases by 8 MB every 30,000 blocks, and is currently 4 GB. Therefore, as time passes, ASIC miners with a small amount of RAM will no longer be able to process crypto coin withdrawals. Innosilicon A11 8GB is designed with long-term considerations, so the owner does not need to worry about the size of the DAG file.
A11 can be rewarded in just a few months. This miner will be more popular among large mining companies with millions of dollars in cryptocoin mining companies.
The Innosilicon A11 ETH miner is the other upcoming next-gen ETH ASIC miner. Supposedly the A11 Ethash miner will be delivering 1500 MH/s Ethash hashrate with just 2300W of power usage and should come with 8GB memory. Innosilicon is probably the better choice if the final end-product specifications turn out to be as the values we are expecting, as even though it may be slower in terms of hashrate, and more expensive as a price, but is also more power efficient and better equipped for long term use with enough on board memory.
You should also consider the fact that Ethereum (ETH) will be switching from PoW (Proof of Work) to PoS (Proof of Staking) or with other words moving from mining to staking as a model of generating new coins. This transition has already been started, even though mining is still active and will be for maybe 2 years at least, but when looking for a long-term investment in mining hardware you should have things like that in mind
