Bitmain Releases S19 XP Hyd – Most Power-Efficient Model To Date
Bitmain in mid-March released the Antminer S19 XP Hyd, a new liquid cooling miner that is its most power-efficient model to date, delivering 255 TH/s at 20.8 J/T.
Being the world’s largest manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining equipment, Bitmain’s new S19 XP Hyd has the greatest power efficiency among all of the company’s rigs.
It boasts 255 terahash/second (TH/s) of computing power at 20.8 joules per terahash (J/T) of power efficiency, running on 5,304 watts.
It costs roughly $19,890 per Bitmain’s website, and will begin to ship in Q1 of 2023.
The new liquid cooling miner narrowly beats out their previous Antminer S19 XP, which brought 140 TH/s at 21.5 JJ/T, but cost $11,620. It also edges competitor MicroBT’s Whatsminer M30S++, which brought 112 TH/s at 31 H/TH.
The specific hydro cooling design is used in Bitmain’s very own containers, with coolant liquid going through pipes, to release heat from the machine. Bitmain have recently released new containers, the ANTPACE HK3, which can accommodate 210 mining rigs, consuming 1 megawatt of power.
The release of the S19 XP Hyd follows Intel entering the cryptocurrency mining industry, thus it’s not hard to realise that Bitmain’s recent release of this hardware is not a counter-punch.
So what are the differences to prior miners in the series? The S19 XP Hyd will have an improvement on the current 7 nm chips used for other Bitmain machines, utilising the use of a 5 nm chip. As the chip size is compressed, this allows for increases in the amount of computation that can be done on a board, resulting in greater hashrate.
In doing so, the S19 XP Hydro becomes 25% more efficient and 28% more powerful than the S19 Pro+ Hyd.
Mining Store looks forward to stocking these in the next 12 months!
