Bitmain, the world’s top 10 fabless chipmaker, has expanded its in-demand Antminer 17 series of miners with two new models – Antminer S17e and Antminer T17e, – and is announcing specifications as well as selling times ahead of the launch date on 9 September, 2019.
The Antminer S17e and T17e models have been designed to offer the best value for money. The Antminer S17e has a hash rate of 64 TH/s and operates with a power efficiency of 45 J/TH, while the T17e offers a hash rate of 53 TH/s and a power efficiency of 55 J/TH.
Significant improvements to power efficiency and hash rate have been achieved from Bitmain’s comprehensive strength accumulated over the years in the field and relentless technological innovation.
Both new models have been designed for more stable operations in the long-term to reduce maintenance costs for customers. This is made possible through the dual tube heat dissipation technology which improves how efficiently heat dissipates. The models are also equipped with a more secure software system to prevent malicious attacks.
Bitmain also introduces its compensation strategy for delivery delay. If mining machines are not shipped after a certain period of the specified delivery date, Bitmain will compensate customers by coupons for each day of delay, based on PPS rewards of the mining pool (electricity cost deducted).
