Our miners have multiple advantages over traditional GPU or even ASIC miners:
- Low power consumption (just a fraction of GPU/ASIC power usage)
- Minimal requirements for the host computer
- Completely reconfigurable (unlike ASICs) and constantly updated
With under 20W of power consumption, you will get comparable hashing power to, as of right now, stock 1070Ti GPU which would draw approximately 150-175 Watts depending on the algo.
Another downside of using GPU miners is the price of the host computer, which is recommended to have at least i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and at least 4-6 PCX lanes to plug in mining cards.
Most of the computer systems won't let you host more than 8-10 GPU card at once. AM01 miner is solving this problem in a graceful way: any computer board (ARMv6 or better) with
internet access, USB and Linux OS can be used to control up to 64 miners at once, which will drop your total price of the PC hardware to almost 0. Our test shows that a
single Raspberry Pi 1 ($10-$20 USD) board is good enough to control miners and provide true scalability.
Another benefit of using AM01 miners is that our AM01 miners can be easily setup in the office or even in the living room because they are not producing heat and noise.
The Bottom Line
Typical entry level mining rig could cost you about $4900+USD (6x1070ti GPU, power supply, motherboard, CPU, RAM, risers, HDD; prices are based on the average price from Amazon at the time of writing),
while you can get similar hashing power with AM01 at approximately $3700 USD.
By switching over to AM01 you will not only save on your electric bill, but can also cut the need of mid-grade control computer unit and expensive power supplies while keeping your
mining space chill and quiet.
