AvalonMiner 6.0 has been manufactured and shipped

Through weeks strict tests and improvement on the prototype, AvalonMiner announced that AvalonMiner 6.0 would be the final design. AvalonMiner 6.0 contains A3218 chips, the dedicated Bitcoin chips developed by AvalonMiner. AvalonMiner 6.0 has been shipped in early November. The detailed parameter is as following:

  • Hashrate: 3.5Ths±5%
  • Power consumption: 1050W (on the wall, with assumption of 90% power conversion ratio)
  • Power per hash: 270J/THash (device only) 295J/THash (on the wall, with assumption of 90% power conversion ratio)
  • Overclocking: Support automatically optimization frequency, no need to overclock manually.
  • PSU ouput pin: 4x6PIN dedicated power connector.
  • Fan:12038 Current: between 1.6A and 2.8A. Minimum RPM: 3800.
  • Controller: Raspberry Pi (version B or B+) Raspberry Pi 2 is not supported yet. Each RPi can control approximate 60 devices.
  • AUC: Each AUC can connect up to 6 devices.
  • Dimensions: 340x136x150mm
  • Net weight: 4.8kg
  • Gross weight: 5kg
  • Protection Degree: IP20
  • PSU requirements: Minimum 1100W output, recommend to use high-quality PSU for server with more than 1200W output and high-quality power cable. Input voltage no lower than 11.7V and no higher than 12.2V (numbers take from the controller) Lower voltage leads to lower hash rate and higher voltage leads to possible device burning down. NOTICE: Poor quality cable may result in low voltage.
