These next-generation mining platforms contain a ton of hashpower
Last week, mining manufacturer Bitmain launched its latest Antminer 17 series. Now Canaan Creative has released its own specifications and pricing of devices for the new Avalonminer 10 series that processes between 31 and 33 billion hashes per second (TH / s). Besides the last miners of Canaan, two more companies based inChina will launch this summer the next generation miners who will exploit amaximum of hashrates between 46-70TH / s.
Avalonminer 10 Series: 31-33 trillion hashes per second
The Bitcoin mining machines that process the SHA256 consensus algorithm are increasingly efficient. Last year, several manufacturers launched a series of recently improved mining platforms and this year there is a lot more on the horizon. News.Bitcoin.com recently reported on the new Bitmain and Canaan miners, butCanaan had not published the latest specifications or prices for Avalonminer10. The new documentation of the Avalonminer 10 series is now available on the company’s website and the Interested buyers can sign up on the waiting list.
There are two models available at the Canaan store: the Avalonminer 1041 and the 1041F. Interestingly, although one unit is a bit more effective than the other, bothare listed for the same price at $ 1,057 per mining platform. Unit 1041processes the SHA256 algorithm at 31TH / s and a power efficiency of 56 joulesper terahash (J / TH). Another thing to keep in mind is that the 10-series models use 16nm chips instead of the next-generation 10nm or 7nm chips used by competitors.
In addition to the chips used, the 1041 machine emits 70 decibels (dB) of sound and weighs around8 kg. The most effective Avalonminer model, the 1041F, processes 33.5TH / saccording to the specifications page of the 1041F. Canaan says the 1041F comeswith a first-class power efficiency by awarding owners 63J / TH. The machine isslightly lighter at 6kg and also emits a 70db sound that Canaan calls a “traditional” output. Each machine has a warranty of 180 days from the reception of the mining platforms.
Model U8 of Strongu: 46 trillion hashes per second
In addition to the latest mining platforms sold in 2019, the three main mining giants, Ebang, Bitmain and Canaan, have smaller competitors trying to advance in the industry.Two models that are sold this summer aim to give the miners a greater interestfor their money. The first mining platform expected to go on sale this July is Strongu Mining’s STU-8 (also known as U8), which claims to have a maximum hashrate package of 46TH / s. The power consumption of the model takes around 2100W from the wall according to the specifications. Some online providers expect the U8 model to sell between $ 1,520-1,883 per unit. The U8 is also a bit higher since the unit’s fan has a noise level of around 76dB. The U8 model will also be sold in pre-sale lots (25 units per order) according to the Strongu website. However, the company based in China does not reveal what type of chipset is used for the latest U8 model.
Microbt Whats miner M20S: 70 trillion hashes per second
Another mining platform that is expected for this summer comes from another company based in China. The manufacturer Microbt claims that the new Whatsminer M20S will process a maximum hashate of approximately 70TH / s. The machine has an energy consumption of around 3360W and has a noise level of around 75dB. Microbt plans to sell the mining platform in August and the official distributor of the Pangolin platform is selling each unit for $ 2,349. The Pangolin website reveals the type of chip used in the new M20S models, revealing that it is a semiconductor manufactured with 12 nm TSMC.
Despite the cryptographic winter, bitcoin mining manufacturers have continued to develop faster models with next-generation chips. Both the BTC and the BCH have increased significantly in 2019 and the global data show that the mining economy continues to boom. It is likely that next-generation machines relentlessly push the envelope into this industry. With the Whatsminer M20S Microbt, Strongu U8 and Bitmain’s new Antminer 17s that produces hashrates of more than 50 billion hashes per second, the competitiveness of mining is guaranteed to increase. Very soon, participants and mining facilities will find that mining platforms with low hash performance will be less efficient to the point that they are not worth running, unless they are combined in large quantities.
