Bitmain Releases New 140TH Bitcoin Miner

The new Antminer S19XP will provide up to 140 TH/s and uses 27% less electricity per TH than the most efficient and profitable bitcoin miner today.

The new Bitmain Antminer S19XP was officially announced at the company’s World Digital Mining Summit in Dubai this week. Bitmain’s new miner will pack a lot of computing power as 140 TH/s will be the most powerful mining rig released on the market to date. The new rig’s specifications show the miner’s efficiency is 21.5 joules per terahash (J/TH), which is considerably more efficient than the S19 Pro’s 29.5 J/TH. The S19 XP not only will use 27% less electricity per terahash, it also claims to provide 37% more hashpower per kilowatt-hour (kWh). The S19 XP leverages the SHA256 mining algorithm and has a power consumption of 3,010 watts off the wall.

Bitmain has started taking preorders for the machine with a starting price of $10,500 per unit (which is roughly 10-15% less than other top models), and it estimates that it will begin delivering the first batch sometime in Q3 of next year. For reference, the most powerful Antminer currently available, the S19 Pro, produces 110 TH/s, and Bitmain’s 2016 model, the still-widely-deployed Antminer S9, launched at 11.5 TH/s.
