China's media informed that Bitmain, which produces mining equipment, is creating a device for the extraction of Ethereum blockage. According to the IBTimes portal, with which Chinese sources shared information, 3 motherboards with 6 video cards will be integrated in the ASIC-miner Antminer F3, each board will be equipped with 32 RAM modules according to the DDR3 standard of 1 GB each.
Already known technical data of the new miner, in particular, the hashtet will be 200-220 MH / s, which for the specified configuration is of low importance. It is possible that as a result of further development, this indicator will increase with time. Several issues remain unclear, namely, why manufacturers use outdated memory modules, and the type of video chip used for Ethereum mining remains unknown. The date for the release of the new ASIC-miner to the market is unknown, but if production is expected to start in late February, then mid-year, enthusiasts of the crypto currency will be able to purchase the device. The preliminary cost of the miner is expected to be in the range of 2500-3000 dollars.
