Bitmain, the cryptocurrency technology company and advanced chipmaker, has expanded its in-demand Antminer 17 series of miners with today’s launch of two new models – the Antminer S17e and Antminer T17e. The company also published specifications along with selling times.
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 power efficiency of 55 J/TH.
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 has also introduced its compensation strategy for any 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).
The Antminer S17e and T17e will be released in three batches and will be available for sale on Bitmain’s official website according to the following timings:
