The crypto ASIC miner manufacturer BitMain has just announced a new product, this time not a high-powered new miner, but a low power WiFi router with a built-in Scrypt mining functionality. The new AntRouter R1-LTC is very similar to the already available Bitcoin oriented product AntRouter R1, but instead of an ASIC chip capable of mining BTC it contains one that is designed for mining Litecoin instead. The mining functionality is powered by the company’s BM1485 ASIC chip allowing you to mine any Scrypt-based crypto coin and not only just LTC. Of course the single Scrypt ASIC chip inside the router is not going to make you rich overnight as it mines with a hashrate of just 1.29 MHS, but still it is a nice and interesting idea for a multiple functionalities built inside a single portable device. There is no price announced yet, but the sales of the device should start tomorrow 28th of April and we are going to see the price then, though you should expect that it will be very similar to the one of the R1 BTC model that is being sold for $39 USD. Unlike the BTC WiFi router that is only for solo mining BTC, the LTC version should be able to be used for mining with just about any Scrypt pool according to BitMain, so it will be a bit more flexible and usable solution.
