With the AvalonMiner 741 we updated the number and quality of power connectors
Canaan AvalonMiner 741: The ROQSolid Miner, Refined. AvalonMiner 741 through a series of internal circuit optimization, the number of external power supply interface is adjusted to 6. This change improves the power compatibility, and enhance the user experience. Meanwhile, integrated Airforming Cooling technology, which not only can better protect the fan, but also better gather and export the heat inside to improve the efficiency of heat dissipation. More reliable, open, and even higher quality. Designed to last for the long hash.
As is being reported in Cryptocoinsnews and Breakit, Canaan has opened and is scaling a new datacenter in Boden, Sweden. With 10 Megawatt (MW) capacity to Grow the Blockchain, Canaan’s CEO N.G. Zhang said:
Canaan Creative is expanding to Europe to continue developing blockchain technology for new markets and applications. We came to the conclusion that Boden is the best location for us to drive blockchain technology to the next level.

The Canaan AvalonMiner 741 (A741) is Reliable. Integrated around our latest A3212 processor using TSMC’s 16 nm process with Smart Layout, the AvalonMiner 741 loads 88 A3212 efficient chips into each product providing 7.3 Reliable Terahash per second (RTHS) at 1150 Watts, all designed for long lasting operation for your datacenter. Now, with Airforming Cooling Technology, your A741 runs cooler over its long life.
The AvalonMiner 741 is Open. From Open Source firmware to using Off-the-Shelf Simple power supplies, controllers, and AvalonMiner Management Software (AMS), Canaan is your partner in helping you manage your datacenters, not machines. With flexible open operation, the AvalonMiner 741 is designed to scale. You are in control of your datacenter.
The AvalonMiner 741 is Quality. The AvalonMiner 741 is a datacenter miner. With aluminum printed circuit boards (aPCB), aluminum case, Smart Cooling, and Smart Frequency Adjustment, the AvalonMiner 741 is the Smart Miner.
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.
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.
