Innosilicon has announced another new product in the form of a more powerful Scrypt ASIC miner called the A6 LTCMaster supposedly capable of delivering 1.23 GHS mining hashrate for Scrypt-based cryptocoins with 1500W of power usage. The new miner device is up for pre-order with January 20th to February 10th shipping, the price is $6300 USD or the equivalent of about 23.5 LTC or almost 0.4 BTC. The new device does seem like it just combines two of the previous Innosilicon A4+ LTC ASIC miners both in physical appearance and in terms of specifications as the new Innosilicon A6 LTCMaster essentially doubles the hashrate and the power of the previous device at just $100 less price than what two A4+ miners would cost. What Innosilicon should work a bit more on however is not the release of new miners all the time, they are doing pretty good with that, but instead on their service and customer support as a lot of people buying their devices do seem to complain of trouble in the communication with the company.

Innosilicon A6 LTCMaster Specifications:
– Part Number: INNOSILICON A6 LTCMaster
– Hashrate: 1.23 Gh/s (+-8% performance, can be over-clocked at user’s risk)
– Power Consumption: 1500W (+/-8%, normal mode, at the wall, with 93% efficiency PSU, 25°C temperature)
– Size: (L)350mm*(W)500mm*(H)155mm (dual tube)
– Net Weight: 7.55KG (without PSU)
– Voltage: +12V
– Required rated PSU: 1600W or above, 17 * PCI-E 6Pin

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 remember a while ago we have talked about the 550 MHS BW-L21 Litecoin (Scrypt) ASIC Miner as an interesting alternative to Bitmain’s AntMiner L3+ Scrypt ASICs. Unfortunately back then these were hard to order as there was a minimum order quantity of 100 units and not an easy and straightforward way to order them. This is apparently about to change as the manufacturer of the devices Biwang Electronic Commerce Co. (BW) has appointed the Australian company Block Assets Limited trading as HyperBit as their Worldwide Retail Distributor for the L21 ASIC miner. So finally some competition for BitMain in the home mining segment and more options for the small miners to get back into the Litecoin mining…

You can currently order the 550 MHS BW-L21 Litecoin ASIC miner from HyperBit at a price of $2690 USD in single unit quantities and get it delivered worldwide with a shipping set to start on 30th of November for the current batch of miners. The L21 is apparently the current leader in terms of performance Litecoin Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) miner on the market with 550 MHS hashrate and with just 900W of power usage. It is not clear what the situation with the power supply is at this point however, is there one included (no mention), but a PSU does appear on one of the product photos. Most likely you would need to buy the PSU separately, one that does provide at least 1000W of power and comes equipped with at least 6x 6-pin PCI-E power connectors. Do note that all orders are being shipped directly from the manufacturers location – Shenzhen, China.

BW-L21 Scrypt ASIC Specifications:
– Hash rate: 550MH/s (+- 10%)
– Power consumption: 900W (+- 10%)
– Cooling: 2pcs @ 3000 RPM
– Dimensions: 329mm * 127mm * 159mm
– Network connection: Ethernet
– Technology: 28nm ASIC chips
– ASIC chips quantity: 144 chips
– Operating temperature: 0 to 40 Degree Celsius
– Warranty: 6 months
– Weight: 4.8kg
