Innosilicon has put up for pre-order their new A4+ LTCMaster Scrypt ASIC that should be capable of delivering 620 MHS hashrate with 750W ot power usage according to the official information. This is an update from last year’s Innosilicon A4 Dominator Scrypt ASIC whih was capable of only about 280 MHS and had higher power usage, so a nice improvement for sure. The new Innosilicon A4+ LTCMaster is available for pre-order at a price of $3200 USD (60.355 LTC, 0.631415 BTC) with delivery scheduled for November 30th to December 10th for the current batch. The price is only for the miner with a minimum order quantity of 3 devices and Innosilicon also has offers available with a 1050W 110V PSU or 1600W 220V PSU, depending on the region you live in and the electric network you use. Payments can be made via LTC, BTC or Bank Transfer, there is 6 months warranty and shipping is only with DHL.

If you were surprised by yesterday’s announcement from Bitmain with their 15 GHS X11 ASIC miner, then the new X11 ASIC from Innosilicon will surprise you even more. The Innosilicon A5 DashMaster is claimed to be capable of delivering up to 30.2 GHS X11 hashrate with just 750W of power usage, that is double the performance with lower power usage compared to Antminer D3. Of course we’ve seen before Innosilicon pre-anounce specifications of ASIC miners that end up too much with the actual product not able to deliver what was initially offered, still even if they deliver slower hashrate and higher power usage than what is currently cited it could still be an interesting product. What is really important here is what the price will be as Bitmain did manage to offer a really sweet deal price wise for their 15 GHS X11 miner, no word on pricing for the A5 DashMaster yet though.

For the moment there are still not that much details about the A5 DashMaster ASIC, the information about it is published only on the copany’s Chinese version of the website, nothing on the English site yet. Innosilicon A5 DashMaster should start shipping in early September according to the information on the website, so you can expect that around September time the difficulty of DASH will be already sky high. Other manufacturers of X11 ASIC miners such as Baikal, iBelink and PinIdea are also working on new products or have recently launched such. Of course they are not with the performance of the latest announcements from BitMain and Innosilicon, but could still be interesting products. For example Baikal’s miners support multiple algorithms and not just X11 like most others do.

Update: The information about the new Innosilicon A5 DashMaster X11 ASIC has been published on the English website of Innosilicon as well and there is another interesting piece of information also available. It seems that the miner is capable of achieving about 38 GHS when overclocked with a power usage of about 1250W. The company is taking pre-orders with the shipping expected to start on September 20th and the miners will come with 6 months of warranty.

Litecoin (LTC) is one of the oldest altcoins and it is still alive, although soon after the first wave of Scrypt ASIC miners appeared the interest and numbers of users mining the crypto has started diminising. You can say that LTC was in a bit of a slumber pretty much everywhere besides China at least until a few months ago when Innosilicon has finally released their A4 Dominator Scrypt ASIC miners. So the last few months things have started to move a bit once more and the development of Litecoin has also been a bit more active with SegWit support getting ready to be implemented as well.

The early Innosilicon A4 Dominator Scrypt ASIC miners apparently had some issues according to users that got the devices and they are still being offered, though with the upcoming Chinese new year there could be some delays if you purchase now. The A4 Dominator is supposedly offering 280 MHS hashrate with 1000W power usage and is available for a price of $1800 USD. You will need to get a power supply for the device separately as it is not included in the purchase price of the miner.

Interestingly enough with the increase of the interest in Litecoin (LTC) you can now again purchase Scrypt cloud mining hashrate for mining Litecoin from Genesis Mining. The cloud mining company has been offering Scrypt cloud mining contracts before, but stopped doing so quite some time ago and it now brings back the contracts again. One can easily assume that their new offers are most likely based on A4 Dominators and the pricing is pretty good as an alternative to purchasing the hardware yourself.

You can get 2 MHS Scrypt cloud mining hashrate for $28 USD, 50 MHS for $650 USD of 200 MHS for $2400 USD as a preset packages or any custom hashrate in between. The Scrypt cloud mining contracts are with a duration of 2 years and there is no maintenance fee, everything is included in the price you pay for the hashrate. You can also use our special discount code CryptoMiningBlog5 to get some extra discount and get even better price should you decide to purchase a Scrypt cloud mining contract.
