No way. We're back to earning $1/card/day and your talking about over 1 year ROI on this ASSUMING mining doesn't get any less profitable but looking at network growth over the last 2 months you'll never get your ROI on these.

I would also say do not buy these. Better to spend money on their ASIC equipment or build your own gpu rig.

Yeah it's safe to say you can forget about these. Its much cheaper and way more profitable to build your own rig in the long run. A big plus to building your own rig is the resale value of the GPUs. If and when mining eventually becomes unprofitable you would be stuck with this big behemoth of a machine that can't do anything.

Agree. I can build those same rigs for $1K less than what they are selling. Plus all mine have value throughout their life cycle.

Since buying BTC with CNY is illegal in China now, most likely people will be buying these and even mine at a loss just to earn BTC.

Agree for that. We all know how long the warranty process, its better to buy part from local shop and build it yourself, and its fun too.

Agreed with most of the opinions that building GPU rigs is way more fan,rewarding and economical, with the help and participating in philipma's Thread i will built both Onda motherboard based 6 GPU rigs and Colorful motherboard based 8 GPU rigs.

Meh - just too much hassle and risk to order these from China. So much more fun building your own - and cheaper in any case. Nice try Bitmain, but NO thanks.

I run several different models of Pandaminer and personally love them. I get that one-off home miners want to build theirs to save money but if you run volume the simplicity of pre-built custom systems is a blessing.

FOR RENT.

50 in a good room with venting and good psu's  can be setup in a day.  So for a larger farm you are correct.

I wonder what all those PCIE power connectors are for? I get one to power each slot but the second set?

Yah - I saw that as well.  16 PCIE on the motherboard and then add another 16 for 8x GPU cards (at least for the 1080ti cards) for a total of 32 PCIE.  That's quite a lot.

99 percent sure


the 16 on board are 8 input  on the end.

the other eight go into your gpu

they may want you to use  1060's in the board.

if that is the case  it would be a nice  board not a great one.

eight of these

https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=06G-P4-5161-KR

may be what the board is designed for.

What's to stop you from tearing the unit down and parting it out, same as a home built rig?

These are worth the extra $ compared to buying a pandaminer, especially if your dual mining.
