What is known about the new miners? The devices do not have any marking or data about the manufacturer. The prices of different models are at the level of $550. Most likely, these are custom miners of their own design, which are supplemented with a special mobile processor.

Graphics cards allow you to mine Ethereum, bypassing the Nvidia blocking, which reduces the mining power by half. Nvidia made this decision to focus its products on the gamers’ market. However, miners have learned to use various tricks to circumvent this restriction, including methods such as mining two different coins simultaneously or using a special mobile processor.
