I’m at a crossroads.
I have an order for (32) 3060ti’s that ships out next week from shopblt.com
Do I pre-order an A11 or do I build this 32-card rig (really 3-4 rigs).
The 32-card rig would be around 1920MH and the A11 is projected to be around 2000-2100MH.
Will the A11 be profitable beyond PoS? Will it work with ProgPoW? As I understand it, it would since it’s an 8GB machine.
Long-Term, there is obviously more flexibility with the 32-card setup, but 3 small children and both my wife and I working full time leaves little time for me to get it up and running quickly. Clearly, worst case scenario, PoS happens in 1year. Best case is ProgPoW. And likely scenario, per several sources, is 2 years of mining left.
Cost of the A11 looks to be around $20k delivered in May.
Cost of the 32-card rig is around $18k.
So payback looks equal with regard to time.
The A11 is far easier and almost twice as efficient.
But the long-term use and flexibility from the 32-card rig makes it really attractive.
