Leading ASIC mining device manufacturer Bitmain has revealed a new bitcoin miner that’s even faster than the company’s last machine, which boasts 198 terahash per second (TH/s). The latest model, called the Antminer S19 XP Hyd., is also a liquid-cooled ASIC mining device that claims to produce 255 TH/s at 20.8 joules per terahash (J/T).
255 TH/s and 20.8 J/T: Bitmain Launches the Most Efficient Mining Rig to Date
The application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) manufacturer Bitmain is turning heads with its latest product. The Antminer S19 XP Hyd. is a new bitcoin miner that’s even more powerful than the Antminer S19 Pro+ Hyd. machine Bitmain revealed at the end of January.
The Antminer S19 XP Hyd. claims to produce a whopping 255 TH/s of computing power, which is a lot faster than today’s top machines producing 100 to 112 TH/s. The new ASIC is also much faster than the S19 Pro+ Hyd., which boasts 198 TH/s. While that specific machine won’t be available to the public until May 2022, the latest 255 TH/s machines won’t be delivered until January through March, 2023.
At the time of writing, both machines are available for purchase on Bitmain’s website. Specifications show the hydro-cooling miner will mine BTC, BCH, and BSV, and each unit pulls 5,304 watts off the wall. A single S19 XP Hyd. will cost $19,890 and the company allows bulk orders as well.
Meanwhile the S19 Pro+ Hyd. is also available for $15,048 per unit, but the XP is a bit more efficient in terms of joules per terahash. The hydro-cooling Pro+ has an efficiency rating of 27.5 J/T, while the XP units offer 20.8 J/T.
With both machines unavailable to the public for the time being, the Microbt Whatsminer M30S++ and the Bitmain Antminer S19 Pro are still the top machines today. Bitmain currently doesn’t have any S19 Pros (110 TH/s) available, but the company is selling S19j Pro units with 104 TH/s for $9,984 per mining rig.
At 110 to 112 TH/s the two aforementioned machines will produce just above $10 per day in BTC profits with electricity costs at $0.12 per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Estimates show, with today’s current BTC price, $0.12 per kWh, and an S19 Pro+ Hyd. unit, a miner could get around $19.89 per day in BTC profits.
The ASIC mining device manufacturer is also selling S19 XP units with 140 TH/s for $11,620 per rig. The company seems to have ASIC stock ready to go, as most of Bitmain’s mining rigs were sold out last month. Bitmain’s website notes that the hydro-cooling miners are best used in Bitmain’s custom containers. The firm is selling container units called the Antspace HK3 for $110,000 per container, which holds 210 mining rigs and 1 megawatt (MW) of power.
