Bitmain Antminer D3 - X11 ASIC Miner

Antminer D3 Miner

The Antminer D3 is Bitmain's ASIC miner for the X11 hashing algorithm.    X11 is growing in popularity so it is natural that the larger hardware manufacturer of crypto-currency miners has decided to enter the market with their commercial offering.  The D3's design is in the same line of all the Antminers since  the S7 miner.  The length is very close the S9 miner.  The miner has the same configuration of: three hashing boards, controller board, two fans and an aluminum case.   The units is a little higher than an S9 but outside of that, basically the same.

The web interface is the same Linux powered setup you find in all of the Bitmain offerings.  There are five mineable coins for the  X11 protocol.   DASH by far is the coin that almost everyone is mining with these units.   With the growing popularity of this miner, we could see the difficult spike significantly when this launch.  Each units takes 1,200 watts a piece.   On a 20-amp you can safely run two miners and potentially three miners but please note you will be 1.3 amps over the normal de-rating of 80% of the breakers maximum capacity.

Overall another solid offering from Bitmain and should do a good job mining for X11.

Baikal Giant+ A2000 X11 Miner Released

Baikal Giant+ A2000

Baikal is a new-comer to the crypto-currency market with a couple miners that support six algorithms.   Baikals support the follow hashing algorithms:  X11, X13, X14, X15, Qubit and Quark.  The Giant+ A2000 is a significant increase in performance from the Baikal 150 units.   The 150 units I would consider more of a hobby miner because they didn't really lend themselves for hosted mining.  I did co-location a number of them for a client but with the stacking method and cording did make me a little uneasy.   The A200 give me none of these concerns.  It is very similar in design to the Avalon and Antminers.

They come with two hashing boards and a Linux based controller board.  The interface is your basic web interface with a performance monitor page and other pages for programming the miner and some basic networking to set it up on your LAN.  It has only a single cooling fan for the miner.  The miner is quieter than your  S9 and Avalon miners.  You can run these in your home without having to deal with a ton of ambient noise during its mining operations.

I do like that these miners have the controller built into the miner compared to others, which have external controllers.  Overall this is a solid miner and would recommend for purchase if you are interested in mining for these crypto-currencies.
