So i just read a topic about this brand new miner the avalon 741 and im trying to find which one would be a better investment everything points to the bitmain's miner as you are getting 13.5Th/s

So we have the S9 13.5 TH/s for 1099$
Vs
The avalon 741 7.3TH/s for 714$

So it my math is ok on the S9 you are paying 81$ Per TH/s (1099$/13.5)

instead of the avalon that you're paying 97.8$ per TH/s (714$/7.3TH/s)

If anyone has something to say about this im all ears! Also not to mention that the power consumption is similar so if we are talking of large scale i don't find sense of an Avalon occuping a scpace that coould be used by a S9.

Try skimming through Bitmain's s9 thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1493601.0 looking at the reliability issues with them and then decide for yourself.

For the most part the Avalons run with near-zero issues. The same cannot be said about the s9's.
Plus, the Avalons are readily available from Canaan whereas Bitmain now sells using pre-order, produces in batches that sellout in a day or 2 and are not scheduled to be delivered for over a month or more.

You have to look at the 0.16 Joules/GigaHash at the wall the avalon 741 is 60% less efficient. So it really depends on your electricity per kw/h
false

no s-9 does .1 watts

the do .12  and avalon does .16  that is 33 percent not 60%

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

apparently ASIC manufacturers are going the way of car manufacturers in that some of them are advertised way over-spec and some others are advertised under-spec.

I will have a real comparison for you in 2 months. But so far, I can say that the Avalons are much faster from buying-->shipping-->getting started. as compared to the S9s. I don't think I understand the way Bitmain runs business but they don't seem to be an ASIC manufacturer so much so as a mining company that also sells ASICs on the sideline
