Dr5 Miner Description
The Chinese mining hardware manufacturing leader Bitmain never ceases to amaze, with ASIC miners' release of high performance and energy efficiency. At the end of September 2018, the world was in awe of the Antminer Dr3 with a hash rate of 7.8Th/s and 1410W power consumption, when Bitmain launched the new Dr5 model in December.
Specifications of Bitmain Antminer DR5
This ASIC miner functions with the same Blake algorithm (14r) but with a hash rate of 34Th at 1800W power consumption. The Blake top coin is Decred (DCR). Decred is an excellent community-directed cryptocurrency with built-in governance designed to make it a superior store in the future. Decred's hybrid PoW/PoS consensus mechanism and its continually funded treasury was intended to make the coin secure and adaptable. Currently, on CoinMarketCap, the coin ranks No 62.
Dr5 Miner Hash Rate
The Antminer Dr5 has a top hash rate of 34Th/s. This hash rate means the Antminer Dr5 can make up 34 trillion calculations per second. Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) miners are mining devices that solve complex calculations and are rewarded with altcoins. The Antminer Dr5's impressive hash rate can fetch a good profit for the owner.
Dr5 Miner Power Consumption
The Antminer Dr5 for Decred consumes 1800W per unit, which is higher than most earlier Antminers. The peak hash rate for the Dr5 is 34Th/s, which is one of the admirable features of this device from Bitmain. It comes with a PSU and two cooling fans. Its size is about 175 x 279 x 238 mm and weighs 9.4kg. It uses the Ethernet interface to mine, and in standard mining conditions, the noise level is about 76dB. The noise level is above the noise level of a vacuum cleaner, but it still is ear-friendly.
Dr5 Miner Algorithm
Speaking of advantages, one cannot ignore the potential of its mining algorithm. The Blake-256r14 was part of the top 5 finalists in the well-known NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) competition. According to experts, the Blake 256 is higher than the SHA-256, Scrypt, and Groestl.
