NanoFury NF6, fast USB-based Bitcoin Mining ASIC
Since 2009, the Bitcoin mining industry has completely transformed itself several times, and modern ASIC-based (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) Bitcoin mining devices offer much better price per hash and electrical efficiency than even the most efficient GPUs and FPGAs, which used to dictate the pace of Bitcoin mining until ASIC mining took over. The NanoFury NF6 consists of six NanoFury NF1 ASIC miners reaching an hash rate of 11 to 14 GH/sec, all mounted on a single printed circuit board and powered from any USB port that can supply at least 1.2 A. Considering that a single NanoFury NF1 miner often sells for over $100, there’s really no reason not to get the NanoFury NF6 instead. To set up and use the NanoFury NF6, you’ll need BFGminer, which is a modular ASIC and FPGA miner written in C. BFGminer features dynamic clocking, monitoring, remote interface capabilities, among many other neat features, and it runs on Linux and Windows. Arch, Debian, Gentoo, and Ubuntu users can install BFGminer straight from official repositories with a single command. And if you prefer the convenience of GUI over CLI, you can install a front-end such as EasyMiner.
