Below are some statistics about the mining performance of various hardware used in a Bitcoin mining rig. For GPUs, CPUs, and other hardware not specifically designed for bitcoin mining see here. Only specialized equipment that has been shipped will appear in this list.


  • Mhash/s = millions of hashes per second (double sha256 raw speed performance; may not be very energy efficient with some models)
  • Mhash/J = millions of hashes per joule (energy efficiency; 1 joule of energy is 1 watt during 1 second: 1 J = 1 W*s)
  • W = watt (maximum power consumption, i.e. energy per unit of time: 1 W = 1 J/s)

Be sure to research any of these vendors and machines intensely before spending any money.
