The Avalon 6 Serious Rival to the AntMiner S7

Canaan Creative took over the troubled Avalon brand. They’ve been restoring the brand to its former glory with their recent hardware offerings.

Their latest device, the impressive Avalon 6, contains eighty 18nm A3218 chips, running at 500 MHz to achieve a respectable 3.5 TH/s hashrate which approaches that of the AntMiner S7.

Power Supply

Any good power supply of 1100W and up will run the Avalon 6. The unit draws about 1050 Watts when using a platinum-rated PSU.

Bitcoins Profitability

The imminent halving combined with a rising Bitcoin price may allow the Avalon 6 to turn a profit despite the release of the 14 TH/s AntMiner S9.

Noise

At 55 dB from 1.2 m. / 4 ft., the Avalon 6 is quiet enough to run at home, although not in your bedroom or living room. Underclocking the unit will further reduce noise.

Setup

The Avalon 6 requires either a Raspberry Pi (B / B+) or a TP-Link TL-WR703N as a controller. Up to 50 miners can be maintained from one RPi.

It uses DHCP so it automatically finds an IP address, making for an easy installation.

You can use either Avalon’s control panel or CGminer to setup, control and monitor the device. Basic and advanced settings are easy to access.

Temperature

The frequency of the Avalon 6 can be easily adjusted from its standard 500 MHz and it runs fairly cool even when overclocked.

It is intended for operation at an ambient temperature below 35^C / 95^F. The single fan has no problem cooling the unit due to the unit’s design.
