Last month, the company Bitmain has released a ASIC for Equihash called Antminer Z9 mini. Now the largest manufacturer of Asimov presented a “full version” Antminer Z9. If Z9 mini gives 10 000 Sol/s when energy consumption is 250 watt, the Z9 will issue 40 000 Sol/s and it consumes 1150 watts of electricity.

Currently the actual photos of the device no, the company Bitmain has just introduced a simulated image of the ASIC. It can be seen that the miner looks like two slightly elongated Antminer Z9 mini, collected in a single package. The Z9 chips in the Mini are very well dispersed, so that the two miners you can get 30 thousand sols in energy consumption in 700 watts. But if you put three of Asik, then the rate will increase to 45 thousand sols. Given this and the fact that the device has only 7 connectors PCI-E power (6 for circuit boards and the ASIC 1 to control Board), we can assume that Bitmain is maximally dispersed chips, and reduced their number. Perhaps the price of the device does not meet the proposed equipment and further overclocking Antminer Z9 will be impossible.

Sale Antminer Z9 is expected to start in September at a price of 3319 dollars without a power supply. Interestingly, the company Innosilicon introduced a similar device A9 Zmaster Equihash ASIC, which will issue, Hasrat 50 thousand Sol/s when the power consumption 620 Watts. However, the price of this equipment is three times higher, and at the moment the first batch are already sold out.
