ASIC Performance and Terms -


If you’re in the market for an ASIC, knowing two terms will help you narrow down what ASIC is right for you. Those 2 terms are $/GH/s ratio and a mining calculator.

$/GH/s ratio, in simplest terms, is how much compute power you are getting for the dollar. Also known as, “bang for your buck”. If we take famous the Antminer S1, and divide its price (0.428 BTC ~ $222.3) by its hashrate (180 GH/s) you get a phenomenal ratio of 1.235.

This means for every $1 and 23 ½ cents, you are getting gigahash of compute power; Antminer S1 is a great entry point for people that want to get into mining.
