AntRouter R3-LTC 3-in-1 Wi-Fi router, alarm clock and miner
It seems Bitmain was fascinated by the production of more compact and less powerful miners that besides cryptocurrency mining are able to perform other functions. New AntRouter R3-LTC — another proof of that. The company had previously released Wi-Fi routers for bitcoin mining, and then the device for mining litecoin. In the new AntRouter R3-LTC improved performance of mining litecoin, and "duties" Wi-Fi router it also copes better. Also on the front panel added to the clock.
The device is based on a specialized Scrypt ASIC chip BM1485 from Bitmain. The potential of the gadgets that perform multiple functions, is quite high, however, they must be well thought out and constructed so that mining does not affect other options.
According to the characteristics the device offers data transfer rate up to 300 Mbit/s 2.4 GHz 802.11 g/n as Wi-Fi router and features six ASIC chips BM1485 for mining that allow to obtain 9,9 of megahee algorithm Scrypt power 23.2 W. It is equipped with an led clock, and, in fact, is a product of 3-in-1, which will look great on the desktop, providing a connection to the Internet and showing time. There are significant drawback: the noise level of 50 dB at a distance of one meter from ventilation ducts at an ambient temperature of +30°C in a quiet room.
