Innosilicon is also joining the game with CryptoNight ASIC miners as the company has just announced their new Innosilicon A8+ CryptoMaster. An ASIC miner for CryptoNight capable of delivering 240 KH/s with 480 Watts of power usage with delivery time starting from 16th April, 2018. No official word on pricing yet announced, thouhg they should be cheaper than What Bitmain is currently selling their X3 miners at in order to be competitive since Innosilicon is slower, but will start shipping earlier.

Here are the official specifications of the Innosilicon A8+ CryptoMaster CryptoNight ASIC miner. Innosilicon advertises the device as suitable for mining many currencies on the CryptoNight, including XMC, ETN, KRB, DCY… so just 4 of the “many”. Do note that Monero (XMR) has already forked to the new CryptoNightV7 POW and will not be compatible with these ASIC miners, other coins using the old CryptoNight algorithm have akso forker or are planning to fork soon to the new V7, so by the time you get the device the many coins may be just a few.

Innosilicon has announced an upgrade to their 30 GHS A5 DashMaster X11 ASIC miner from last year in the form of a new 65 GHS X11 ASIC named Innosilicon A5+ DashMaster. The new device seems a lot like just two of the older devices joined together and the specifications also suggest something like that as well. Anyway, Innosilicon A5+ DashMaster promises 65 GHS X11 hashrate at 1500 Watts of power usage in a single device that will cost you $4200 USD or the respective value in LTC or BTC (the price does not include a power supply). The X11 ASIC market is pretty crowded already and the profitability for mining DASH especially is not very high anyway, but you could look for altcoins that might give you better results.

Innosilicon A5+ DashMaster Specifications:
– Hash Rate: 65GH/s(+/-8%)
– Power Consumption: 1500W +/-8% (at the wall, with 93% efficiency PSU, 25°C temperature )
– Chip Type: A5+ DashMaster ASIC
– Dimensions: Double tube, 265mm(L) x 250mm(W) x 155mm(H)
– Net Weight: 6.02KG(without PSU)
– Operating Temperature: 0°C—85°C (device junction temperature)
– Network Connection: Ethernet

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
– Cooling: air-cooled with 2 fans per tube, 4 fans in total
– Internet connection: Ethernet
– Power supply connection: 2 PCIE port per power board
