On Thursday, the China-based mining rig manufacturer Bitmain announced the launch of two new Antminer S19 series models that process between 95 to 110 trillion hashes per second (TH/s). The Antminer S19 Pro model with 110TH/s and 29 joules per terahash (J/TH) is 24 trillion hashes per second faster than Microbt’s latest Whatsminer M30S model (86TH/s).
Bitmain Launches the S19 Series Processing Up to 110 Trillion Hashes per Second
Bitmain, one of the top mining rig manufacturers worldwide, has revealed two new machines that pack a massive amount of terahash. On February 27, the firm’s official Twitter account announced the launch of the Antminer S19 series, showing rigs that process hashrates between 95-110TH/s.
The company’s website shows the machines currently have an undisclosed shipping date and the site says the dates are “to be determined (TBD).” The two S19 variants cannot be purchased just yet either. The lack of a realized shipping date might be due to the delay in Chinese shipments globally that have affected numerous Chinese bitcoin mining rig manufacturers. The website shows a picture of the two S19 Antminers and offers specifications as well.
The Antminer S19 Pro commands up to 110TH/s and processes the SHA256 consensus algorithm (BTC, BCH, BSV). A single unit pulls 3250W from the wall and has an efficiency rating of 29 J/TH. The S19 Pro looks much larger than the average mining rig today and weighs around 15.5kg. The lower end model Antminer S19 (95 TH/s) weighs 16.5kg and pulls the same amount of wattage (3250W) off the wall.
The reference power efficiency on the wall for the lower end S19 model is also 29 J/TH. The prices for Bitmain’s next-generation miners are also unconfirmed and will likely be announced just before the sale. Besides the new S19 series, Bitmain has the most powerful miner on the market, as the S17+ packs 73 TH/s and only pulls 2920W from the wall. At press time using the current BTC exchange rates on February 27, the S17+ captures $5.72 a day with electrical rates at $0.12 per kWh. Read More
