Jihan Wu, a co-founder of Bitmain, announced two cryptocurrency mining models – S17+ and T17+ – from the Antminer 17 series at the World Digital Mining Summit (WDMS) in Frankfurt today.
Both new miners will come with improvements to power efficiency and hash rate. 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 power efficiency of 50 J/TH + 10%.
“Our new Antminers are at the forefront of mining innovation. They each represent the future of its rig design and power efficiency. We remain committed to our research and development capabilities and will continue to improve our devices,” said Mr. Wu at the WDMS.
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 have 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 optimized all-in-one design, making the models easily to be implemented and can adapt to mining farms of different sizes.
The Antminer S17+ and T17+ will be available for sale on Bitmain’s official website according to the following timing:
Selling Time: 11 October 2019, 19:00 GMT+8
Delivery Time: 01- 10 December 2019
