Canaan Avalon A1166 Pro Review
The Avalon A1166 Pro is hardware that uses an SHA-256 algorithm for mining cryptocurrencies. It was released recently in August 2020. The amount of power it consumes when plugged in is 3400 watts. The maximum hash rate of the Avalon A1166 Pro is 81TH/s. This equipment is also known as A1166 Pro within the community of miners dealing in cryptocurrency.
The A1166 Pro comes from the company Canaan. Canaan is one of the leaders in the super-computing segment. They are a service provider company that largely depends and bases their hardware solutions around blockchain technology, using Artificial Intelligence and mainly Machine Learning to develop cutting edge technologies. In 2016, Canaan successfully managed to launch the manufacturing on the first chip in the 16 nm size range and has also been awarded a prestigious certification, making them China National High-Tech Enterprise.
A miner can mine coins like Acoin, Crown, Bitcoin, Cure-coin, and few others, based on the device’s compatibility with them. The dimensions of the device are 306 x 405 x 442 mm. The noise from this device is 75db. A 12 V is necessary for the device to run effectively. Humidity should be around 5% and 95%, a normal standard by all means. The efficiency one can expect from Avalon Miner 1166 Pro by Canaan is 0.042 j/Gh. It comes with four fans that help with cooling.
Noise level of the Avalon A1166 Pro
The Noise level of the A1166 Pro, just like the other devices, is on the high side. It has a noise level of 75db. The device contributes to high noise pollution, and this is something to be considered for the miners purchasing this device.
The Noise level shows that the device takes a lot of hash rate to mine the coins. This is an indication for miners not to set up this mining device in any residential area. The Avalon Miner 1166 Pro was created as one of the most profitable Bitcoin miners in the market, and by this, it requires a substantial amount of power to mine the coins. The hash rate is at 63Th/s with an efficiency of 0.052j/Gh. The efficiency shows that the mining device is profitable and can mine coins at an efficient rate.
Power consumption of the Canaan Avalon A1166 Pro
The power consumption of the AvalonMiner 1166 Pro is 3276W. It has one of the highest power consumption rates in the mining community. The power consumption indicates that the device consumes a lot of power supply, and for this, it affects the production cost. For any miners willing to join the mining community, the electric cost must be looked into before buying any device.
The electric cost differs from location to location and can affect the profitability of the mining device. A location that requires a low electric cost will increase the profitability of mining any coin. In contrast, a location that requires a high electric cost will affect the profits that come out from mining any coins.
