Mining hardware comparison/New format
See also: Non-specialized hardware comparison
Below are some statistics about the mining performance of various hardware used in a Bitcoin mining rig. For GPUs, CPUs, and other hardware not specifically designed for bitcoin mining see here. Only specialized equipment that has been shipped will appear in this list.
- Mhash/s = millions of hashes per second (double sha256 raw speed performance; may not be very energy efficient with some models)
- Mhash/J = millions of hashes per joule (energy efficiency; 1 joule of energy is 1 watt during 1 second: 1 J = 1 W*s)
- W = watt (maximum power consumption, i.e. energy per unit of time: 1 W = 1 J/s)
Be sure to research any of these vendors and machines intensely before spending any money.
