AvalonMiner 721 & AvalonMiner Controller Software Update

Software Update and How to Update Your AvalonMiner & Controller

Canaan engineers have been hard at work to bring a software update to the AvalonMiner 721 and AvalonMiner Controller. As announced previously, our latest software update brings improved hashrate, improved API and bug fixes.

It is simple to update your setup from the AvalonMiner Controller. If you are not familiar with how to update your AvalonMiner 721 and AvalonMiner Controller, please read our FAQ about the topic: How do I upgrade my AvalonMiner and AvalonMiner Controller?

AvalonMiner 721 Power Connectors

With the AvalonMiner 721 we upgraded the number and quality of power connectors.

The AvalonMiner 721 is ROQ Solid. In the AvalonMiner 721 we upgraded the number and quality of power connectors to increase efficiency and reliability of the AvalonMiner 721. The front face of the AvalonMiner 721 now has “8-on-front” 6-pin female power connectors so that an operator connects 8 of a power supply unit’s 6-pin male power connectors to an AvalonMiner 721. In our tests, Canaan has seen a 5-8 % increase in efficiency in our latest generation miner by moving from 4 power connectors to 8. Also, by connecting 8-on-front power connectors with quality cables, an AvalonMiner 721 should run even more consistently and reliably.

Please read more about the AvalonMiner 721 Power Connectors in this FAQ Question. If you have more questions, please do submit a support ticket.
