Latest Shipment of Avalon ASICs Could Increase Network Hashrate By 500% #bitcoin #mining

Latest Shipment of Avalon ASICs Could Increase Network Hashrate By 500% #bitcoin #mining

Although slightly cut off, it appears there are 24 shipping boxes in the first photograph. Each of the large shipping boxes contains 6 smaller boxes that hold 10 trays of ASIC chips. Given that each chip has a standard clock speed of 282 MH/s, with 260 chips per tray the 10 large boxes in the photographs contain over 105 TH/s. There is evidence that chips can clock to over 450 MH/s, so using an estimate of 400 MH/s to leave some margin would result in 150 TH/s for the 24 boxes. Given that the current network speed is 225 TH/s, these chips coming online would constitute a 40% increase over current hashing power, more than the entire network speed at the end of May.
