It is about the basics of Bitcoin, it might change your perspective.
Is it worth mining bitcoins with the R4 if electricity is free? I in no way want to get into the business, just curious: How does profitability correlate with quantity? I mean are two miners together more effective then simple just two times the output of one? Is it more cost effective to think big?
As far as I know you would just get twice the mining power at the twice the cost. The only way you can make this more effective is if you can use some sort of cooling system to cool them both at once. Last updated on October 14th, at Notify of new replies to this comment.

The traditional fan has been the biggest source of noise for other mining hardware. Its fan speed is controlled automatically, ensuring that the noise is regulated. Bitmain recommends the use of an APW5 power supply. It also uses 28nm Xilinx programmable logic.
It supports Gigabit Ethernet to ensure that mined blocks are submitted instantly. Not only are the devices expensive but they also generate a lot of heat and noise, not to mention the amount of electricity they consume. Some of these problems mentioned above have been addressed and as a miner you can do it as a hobby while also making some money.
