It is reported that Bitmain, one of the world’s top 10 fabless chipmakers is going to expand it’s in demand Antminer 17 series of bitcoin miners with two new models. The new models are Antminer S17e and Antminer T17e respectively. The scheduled launch date is 9th September this year.
Bitmain claims that its upcoming miners Antminer S17e and Antminer T17e are specially designed to be value for money. Antminer S17e comes with a hash rate of 64 TH/s while Antminer T17e comes with a hash rate of 53 TH/s. On the other hand, Antminer T17e operates with a power efficiency level of 45 J/TH while the T17e operates with a power efficiency level of 55 J/TH.
Over the years, we have seen that Bitmain has come up with significant improvements from time to time in terms of power efficiency and hash rate.
Bitmain has designed these two bitcoin miners with a long term goal. They are not only designed to offer more stable operations but also to reduce long term maintenance costs. The dual tube heat dissipation technology integrated into the miners improves the efficiency of the heat dissipates and reduces the long term maintenance cost. The bitcoin miners are integrated with a more secure software system to prevent malicious attacks.
Along with these technological improvements, Bitmain will also introduce a set of compensation strategies to increase customer satisfaction rate. The compensation strategy is that if bitcoin mining machines are not shipped within a certain date, Bitmain will provide a coupon for the delay of a day.
The bitcoin miners will be released in three batches on Bitmain’s official website following this time schedule:
