The Innosilicon A8+ CryptoMaster was released in April of 2018. These units offer 248 KH/s for an advertised power draw of 480 of power making them the most profitable Cryptonight miners on the market. This miner is slightly better than its competition – the Antminer X3 – but at a higher price point. The Innosilicon A8+ is the current miner of choice for the end of 2018 and beyond timeframe.
At 480W, the Innosilicon A8+ is an ideal choice for colocation. This unit performs optimally when using 208, 220 or 240V power sources which are often difficult or impossible to find at residential locations. The miner produces a lot of heat so it is best run in a location with a managed climate.
