New Ethereum ASIC Mines Like 32 GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs

Chinese mining firm Bitmain has released a teaser of the company’s upcoming Antminer E9 Ethereum

Chinese mining firm Bitmain has released a teaser of the company’s upcoming Antminer E9 Ethereum miner. The company stated that the Antminer E9 would launch very soon, although it didn’t commit to a specific date.

The Antminer E9 could be the answer to gamers’ prayers. If cryptocurrency miners jump on this new ASIC miner, they could forgo buying Nvidia’s Ampere offerings, and maybe, just maybe, gamers will finally be able to pick up a gaming graphics card. The shelves won’t magically fill themselves since cryptocurrency miners aren’t the sole cause of the graphics card shortage; we can also blame the pandemic for that as well. Perhaps we could see more stock on the market, though.
