Bitmain has just announced two new Bitcoin ASIC miners with improved power efficiency and hashrate – Antminer S17+ and T17+ at the World Digital Mining Summit (WDMS) in Frankfurt today. The Antminer S17+ has a hash rate of 73 TH/s and operates with a power efficiency of 40 J/TH + 10%, while the T17+ offers a hash rate of 64 TH/s and a power efficiency of 50 J/TH + 10%. The Antminer S17+ and T17+ will be available for sale on Bitmain’s official website according to the following timing: pre-sales starting on 11 October 2019, 19:00 GMT+8 and deliveries starting sometime in the 01- 10 December 2019 timeframe. Pricing has not yet been revealed as well as detailed specifications, but they should become clear when the devices are listed for sale in 2 days time. The currently available Bitmain Antminer S17 is 53 TH/s hashrate with 45 J/TH efficiency (2385W) priced at $2322 USD for the next batch and the Bitmain Antminer T17 is 40 TH/s hashrate with 55 J/TH efficiency (2090W) priced at $951 USD for the next batch.
By using dual tube heat dissipation technology, the miners have been designed so that the space between the air inlet to the air outlet has been reduced by 50%, improving heat dissipation effectively as well as reducing fan noise. Besides, a high temperature and fan abnormal protection mechanism has been built in to ensure the stable and safe operation of the miners. Both Antminer S17+ and T17+ use the industry leading Exposed Die package solution and an optimized all-in-one design, making the models easily to be implemented and can adapt to mining farms of different sizes.
