Bitmain has begun making hardware for different algorithms aside from sha-256 (Bitcoin algorithm). They created one for scrypt and now, they've created an incredibly fast miner for the X11 algorithm.
Antminer D3 - Specifications
- Hash rate: 15 GH/s (Variation of ±5% is expected)
- Power consumption: 1200W (at the wall, with Bitmain’s APW3 PSU, 93% efficiency, 25°C ambient temp).
- Dimensions of the miner: 320*130*190mm
- Hashing algorithm: X11
