Bitcoin mining solutions company CoinTerra announced their GSX I line of PCI Express bitcoin miners, building on the success of the recently-launched TerraMiner.
“Having delivered the TerraMiner, the most powerful Bitcoin miner ever released, we decided to turn our attention to designing an affordable solution for the folks who kick-started the mining revolution – enthusiasts and hobbyists looking for an affordable path to ASIC-based Bitcoin mining,” said Ravi Iyengar, CEO at the Austin, Texas-based company. ”
The device can deliver over 400 GH/s of mining power, and comes in at $1,599.
The technical details, as outlined by CoinTerra:
The GSX I is controlled by the same software as the TerraMiner, running on the host PC and connected via the card’s USB ports. This architecture allows for maximum flexibility, including the exciting possibility of building expandable mining solutions with non-PC controllers.
“An additional benefit of this design is that an entirely standalone system comprised of multiple GSX I cards could be driven by an off-the-shelf controller, such as the BeagleBone Black found inside the TerraMiner,” said CP of Engineering at CoinTerra, Jim O’Connor. “We would be thrilled to see the community explore this kind of solution”.
Delivery of the units is scheduled to begin in June 2014. For more information, follow this link.
