Benefits of GPU Rigs vs ASIC Miners

Often we are asked, should I buy an ALL in one unit from the likes of Bitmain such as an Antminer S9+ or L3++ Unit or even the upcoming (July 2018, E3)

Let’s have a look at some comparisons :

We have based this on current AUD Value of GPU components. Note the Antminer E3 price is not landed and you will need to pay customs tax and duties + GST on this once landed.
