It seems that not only Bitmain it getting back in the game with a more powerful Equihash ASIC miner, but Innosilicon also has a new offer for such device. The new Innosilicon Equihash A9++ ZMaster is the successor of their original A9 Zmaster ASIC from last year that offered 50 Ksol/s hashrate for Equihash. The new Innosilicon Equihash A9++ ZMaster comes with 140 Ksol/s hashrate at 1550W of power usage, so efficiency wise it does not seem much better than the original A9 Zmaster – it is almost 3 times faster at almost 3 times the power usage. Innosilicon listed briefly Innosilicon Equihash A9+ ZMaster (with just one plus) with 120 Ksol/s at the same 1550W, but it is not available anymore.

The Innosilicon Equihash A9++ ZMaster is available for order at a price of $1580 USD (without a power supply). It is very similar specifications wise to what Bitmain is offering with their AntMiner Z11, however the A9++ ZMaster could ship faster and be in your hands a bit early. The problem is that unlike Bitmain that caught up with their new product, Innosilicon seems to have just put more of the chips into a bigger device as they were ahead of Bitmain specs wise already with their A9.

Innosilicon Equihash A9++ ZMaster Specifications:
– Hashrate: 140Ksol/s +/-6%
– Power Consumption: 1550W +/-10% (normal mode, at the wall, with 93% efficiency PSU. 25°C temperature)
– Dimensions: 360mm(L)*250mm(W)*155mm(H), dual tube
– Net Weight: 11KG
– Ambient Temperature: 0°C to 40°C
– Network Connection: Ethernet

The new Bitmain Antminer Z11 ASIC offers a hashing power of 135 KSol/s for the Equihash algorithm used by ZCash (ZEC) and other crypto currencies and is essentially the successor of the Antminer Z9 from the last year that offered 40 KSol/s and the Antminer Z9 mini that was just 10 KSol/s. The Antminer Z11 uses Bitmain’s latest proprietary 12nm chip, which is made using advanced Bare Die molding technology for better heat dissipation and has a power-efficiency of 10.50 J/KSol, so it is with significant improvement over the older hardware. The recommended power supply for this miner is 1800W, though the actual like the APW7 PSU from Bitmain, though the actual power consumption is lower (1418 W power consumption claimed). The current price of the Antminer Z11 is $1242 USD and shipping should start around the end of April (20-30).

– Model No.: 240-Z
– Crypto Algorithm/Coins: EquiHash/Zcash
– Hashrate, KSol/s: 135
– Reference power on wall, Watt: 1418
– Reference power efficiency on wall @25°C, J/Ksol: 10.50

– Quantity of hash chips: 9
– Quantity of hash boards: 3
– Networking connection mode: RJ45 ethernet 10/100M
– Miner Size (Length*Width*Height, w/o package), mm: 242*134*302
– Net weight, kg: 5.40
– Noise, dBA @ 25°C: 70

The latest EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner v0.5 comes with some performance optimizations and fixes for various variations of the Equihash algorithm it supports for GPU mining on Nvidia-based rigs. You can expect to see a speed increase of 3-15% depending on your mining hardware for Equihash 144,5 as well as 2% for Equihash 210,9 with the latest update. The new version also fixes the problem with cropped performance on fast (1080 Ti, Titan) gpus for Equihash 96,5 as well as the “low difficulty shares” problem, on Aion pools for Equihash 210,9. So if you are mining any of the Equihash Equihash 192,7, 144,5, 96,5 or 210,9 variants yo umight want to give this miner a go. Do note it does not support the Equihash 200,9 that was originally the algorithm called Equihash and used by ZCash (ZEC) that is currently mineable by ASIC miners. We are also reminding you that the EWBF Cuda Equihash Miner is a closed source miner, there are CUDA 8.0 and 9.1 binaries available for Windows and Linux and there is a 2% developer fee built-in by default.
