Bitmain AntMiner K5 ASIC Miner for Eaglesong used by Nervos (CKB)

It seems that the Todek TODDMINER C1 is not going to be the only Eaglesong ASIC miner out there, Bitmain is also joining the fun with their Bitmain AntMiner K5 ASIC miner. The TODDMINER C1 promises to deliver 1.6 TH/s hashrate with 1100 Watts of power usage with $4100 USD price and supposedly already shipping, while the Bitmain AntMiner K5 is rated at 1130 GH/s hashrate with 1580 Watts of power usage and a price of about $1400 USD or significantly cheaper. Bitmain plans to start shipping the K5 Eaglesong ASIC miners in the first half of April and they are only available on their Chinese website for the moment. Eaglesong mining has started with GPUs and has relatively quickly moved onto FPGA mining and now it seems the transition to ASIC mining is starting to take place. Hashaltcoins BlackMiner F1+ does 22 GH/s and F1-Ultra does manage t get you 26 GH/s hashrate at the moment, so ASIC miners will really offer much faster performance when they become available and will significantly increase the total network hashrate.
