Title: Mucho gear coming out in next few months.
Post by: philipma1957 on August 05, 2018, 06:23:21 PM
Note this is me quoting my own post on another  thread


well a lot of   gear coming out

Bitmain >>>>>>>>>>>>>  s9j    Tweak of the s9i
Avalon  >>>>>>>>>>>>>   851   Tweak of the 841  I will be reviewing this soon



Innosilicon>>>>>>>>>>> T2 turbo Tweak of the T2   70 watts per th I will review this
Pangolin/Whatsminer >>>> M10      New chip            65 watts per th I will review this

GMO >>>>>>>>>>>>>> B2         New chip            82 watts per th

Avalon >>>>>>>>>>>>>  A9         New chip            65 watts per th 2-3 months out



I don't have an s9j  and do not plan to review it
I am trying to find a good seller of the GMO to review it.
I will review a s11 if it comes out.


Locking this until the Avalon 851 arrives.

I got my hands on a pair of Avalon 851's  I tested them for about a week


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4811227.0


I prefer the 841's  over the 851's.

If you want an Avalon right now look for the 841's

Or wait until later in the year and get the next gen A9 model  Maybe late Oct or early Nov.

My Innosilicon  T2 turbo comes on Monday the 20th of August.

I will do a full review with multiple tests  all next week.


I hope it is better then the Avalon 851 was.

Okay this has arrived minefarmbuy got a model for me.

I just programmed it with ck pools
and I am waiting for its numbers.

https://i.imgur.com/Eo5lvK3.png

it did about 22.5th and 2100 watts on factory  say 93 watts a th very fast test.  as I don't want to use 2100 watts with this unit in current spot.

checking efficiency  it seems to pull only 1467 watts  vs 2100 watts. I don't know how much hashrate drops.


okay 1455/17300 hash = 84.1 watts a th = very good. early test number  but good.

1455/18410 = 79.03 watts a th  = really good   still an early test on efficiency

My Innosilicon  T2 turbo comes on Monday the 20th of August.

[...]

so  it  is doing about 17.5 or so?

Post by: philipma1957 on August 21, 2018, 11:40:52 PM
so  it  is doing about 17.5 or so?

The innosilicon T2 Turbo on efficiency does about 17630  and 1445 watts  which is  around 81.9 watts a th  at the wall.
fans were 50%
temps were 53c

https://i.imgur.com/YvtFgHg.png
https://i.imgur.com/XkU5f6s.png
https://i.imgur.com/S9QdS0Q.png

next test is on balanced.

they supply the psu  and I am not going to run it at factory or preformance

factory  used 2100 watts ,

I don't want to pull that much power

performance would be more like 2450 watts  which is worse.

I hope balanced is good.  power wise  it is only about 1700 watts  which is a lot lower then 2100 watts.  if I do 20th  it would be around 85 watts a th.
It is still tuning as I type.

As of now this is more efficient then any other btc miner I have used.

now it is an asic boost which means you can not mine every pool and you can not mine most alt coins.  like ppc or bch.

solo.ckpool.org
pool.ckpool.org
kano.io
slushpool.com
f2pool.com
bitminter.com   they give nmc coins and btc coins
some india based pool  don't remember it

anyone know more please list them.

You're going to review the M10, what are the other two reviews you're thinking of?

You're going to review the M10, what are the other two reviews you're thinking of?

well I am waiting on info on the M10 yet to get it.
the avalon A9  maybe in late Sept I hope

the avalon 851 was not much

I like the avalon 841 better.

I am hoping to get a gmo from japan
I am hoping to get a s-11 from bitmain

I know people don't like the T series since there are pool restrictions.
It is a no brainer if you want to mine at either of ck's pools or kano's pool.

My self I favor Avalon gear because of warranty and support.

My 5 T1's  
2 good
2 have a flaky board
1 has a dead board

1 of 5 psu's died

they ran since april 3rd or 4th
hot spot rugged setup still my avalon 841's same place are flawless

I didn't know the the canaan A9 was that close. Only issue I have had with canaan was. . .. nothing. Then I've had good luck with both s9's (one is s9i). Was thinking the new canaan was further off so I guess I may skip the T2T. Unless I get antsy if I can get the exhaust in soon.

Well I will get the avalon a bit quicker to demo and review.

They build them really well and they have always some type of downclock  which comes in handy.

With my solar array setup we want  gear that is bullet proof  and with good warranties , good service.
Avalon  does that.

So far the T2Turbo  had very good numbers at efficiency   about 82 watts a th at the wall/ac

but at  balanced  it looks to be about 89 or 90 watts a th which is so so.

I will wait for overnight numbers.

Can you also post prices beside the miners?

Maybe the price per TH would be useful.

I actually have no idea  what the T2 costs, can you even buy a single machine?

I Purchased   it from minefarmbuy

https://minefarmbuy.com/

https://minefarmbuy.com/shopbtc/innosilicon-t2t

I used a cc

I have a 6 months no interest deal on the cc.

cost was 1800  and I had a 81 dollar discount  so cost was 1719

Not cheap  but  I try out most everything  on the market and do reviews on them.

I am bullish on btc price  and using a cc with time payments  gives me extra protection

https://i.imgur.com/GO5lBvm.png
https://i.imgur.com/oZRksvZ.png


bitmain is practically giving away  the s9

 about 600 for 14 th  at 100 watts a th with psu

while this is 1720 for 18th at 82 watts a th  efficiency speed setting

but it is the most efficient btc miner I ever tested at that setting.  it saves you 1600 kwatts a year or 160 usd at 10 cent power.

320 at 20 cent power at that setting while giving you 3.2th extra hash.  that is worth about 307

so if you have 10 cent power  you get back 467 in a year  you paid 1120 extra  takes 2.4 years
if you have 20 cent power you back 627 in a year you paid 1120 extra takes 1.79 years

If btc does a bull run  you can crank this up  to 22 or 24th    and do well
I used a cc with 6 months to pay  more protection and if btc does a bull run a score
It is quieter on efficiency then the s9
Form factor is compact.

Do I recommend buying it maybe maybe not a lot depends on your setup
But I am going to buy another one this week.

Why not buy direct from innosilicon. $1350 + $242 shipping.


Title: Re: Mucho gear coming out in next few months.
Post by: Trinislacker on August 22, 2018, 01:16:47 PM
Buying direct means you pay in crypto. And no benefits of the CC

Yeah my bank does not allow me to send a transfer to China.  So I need to open a new bank account with a new bank.

Also if I send btc  innosilicon  does bad  conversion and you don't pay  1592  you pay 1700 or 1800

If I do btc right now I need to send 0.269052 btc which is about 1793.15 usd at coinbase price

so I paid 1720  with 6 months to pay

vs  1793 in btc

pretty much a no brainer for me

Any idea of how Avalon A9 will be priced?

Simplest phrasing is: "to market". With a Q4 release pending bull or not it would be more of a matter of speculation. I can't recall if they released specs yet, but without physical product performing it's hard to say. My expectation for any asic right now is 25+ TH/s at about 1500- 1600w to trend inline with current industrial modeling and have enough ROI to entice mass market.

Post by: philipma1957 on September 11, 2018, 12:50:00 AM
I do exchange emails with steve from canaan time to time.

So  the M10 preorder in Nov is 1588 + shipping or 1650

the avalon a9  may be better may be worse may be the same in hash and watts per th.

it 70 watts per 1th and the m10 may be just that.

Canaan will be close to the price of the M10

not the price so  1000  fo 28th doing 1960 watts seems not so likely


My hopes are it does 30th at 2000 watts for 1400usd and ships in late Oct.

I can't see it doing much lower .

My M10 arrives soon maybe on friday of this week

From the whispers I get it should be the new king in terms of efficiency

at the moment the Innosilcon T2Turbo  I have does 19.5th at 1716 watts or  about  88 watts a th on balanced setting

tracking number from dhl for m10 it will come this friday the 14th.

I have no info on this gear. 
to be fair I did not contact:
GMOgmo as the preorder was more then 100 days.
Pandaminer has yet to be specific

triple-1 rejected me but I think they did not understand that I was willing to pay for the gear. I am working on getting it.

gmo
gmo b
gmo b2
gmo b3

triple-1
Eco Spec Machine
hyper spec machine


pandaminer
no info yet but they claim they will be selling one

their are some clever scammers with water cooled gear so be careful  about buying from people selling them.

I am working on developing this list.

At the moment my M10  does 2350 watts and 34350 gh = monster

but I really want to test the bittech and the triple-1


Title: Re: Mucho gear coming out in next few months.
Post by: philipma1957 on September 22, 2018, 01:35:50 PM
so the list gets longer

Ebang  says they have a 44th 45 watt per th at the wall miner

Bitmain  says they have a chip that can do as good as 42 watts a th .


whatsminer announced a m10s miner  that can do 44th and 55th

Avalon A921  is said to do 20th at 1700 watts

Innosilicon  T2turbo 24th does 4 speeds  19.6 at 1720 watts for balanced they announced a T2turbo +32t

GMO

bittech

Triple-1

Pandaminer



I got my Whatsminer m10  a beast does 34.5 th at 2350 watts
