Have you been waiting for the GPU prices to decrease? Maybe your luck is just around the corner. Bitmain is about to release their new Bitmain Ethereum ASIC Miner. As a response to that news the valuation of AMD stock by Wall street analyst Christopher Roland plummeted from $ 10,44 to a $ 7,50 price target (-29%).
Not many details have been released regarding this Bitmain Ethereum ASIC miner, but what we do know is that the device features “three motherboards and each of them will be packed with six ASICs along with 32 x 1GB DDR3 memory chips.” Rollout of this new hardware from Bitmain is excepted during H2 2018. Start saving if you want one because they ain’t going to be cheap.
