GPU Mining Machine VS Asic Miner Machine

May, 10, 2023

At present, the most mainstream mining equipment is GPU mining rigs and ASIC miners. The GPU miner needs to run on the computer, and the graphics card determines the mining speed of the GPU miner. The motherboard and power supply largely determine the mining stability of the GPU miner. ASIC miners use advanced hardware technology, which can make miner maintenance easier and provide high-performance computing power.


When mining cryptocurrency, a higher hash rate means easier revenue, while lower energy consumption means less electricity bills. Therefore, computing power and energy consumption are reference indicators to measure the capacity of mining machines.


GPU Mining History


From bare hands to mining pickaxes to mechanized equipment, the tools used to pan for gold have developed quite maturely. Similarly, cryptocurrency mining equipment has also gone from GPU mining to FPGA mining to ASIC mining. GPU mining, as a product iteration of CPU mining, first entered the mining market in 2013. Compared with the CPU with only 64 cores at most, the GPU is up to several thousand cores, and the mining advantage is significant, which can greatly improve the computing power. In order to further improve the computing power, the graphics interface of GPU miners has also increased from one to hundreds. However, in terms of R&D investment in computing power, GPU miners are much less than ASIC miners. Even so, GPU miners still have a place in the mining industry.


ASIC Mining History


In order to solve the problem of the high cost of GPU miners, ASIC mining was born in 2013. Since then, the computing power of the entire network has risen sharply due to the addition of a large number of ASIC miners on the market. Based on the average computing power in July 2013, all CPU miners can no longer generate any revenue, and FPGA miners are close to zero revenue. With the further decline of Bitcoin mining production, the computing power of GPUs is becoming more and more difficult to support the needs of miners, and ASIC mining machines are gradually beginning to dominate Bitcoin mining. It is worth noting that the energy consumption ratio of ASIC mining rigs has also been greatly iterated year by year, with 100J/T in 2016, 40J/T in 2019, 30J/T in 2020, and 20J/T in 2021.

This figure shows the iteration of mining products from 2008 to 2022. The performance of the mining machine here refers to the ratio of computing power and energy consumption.


The antminer s19 series is one of the most popular bitcoin mining equipment. It is famous in the mining industry for its top computing power and ultra-low energy consumption.
