- Bitmain announced the new Antminer S19 and S19 Pro a few hours ago.
- Prior to the Bitcoin Halving in May, Bitmain is thus launching two new models that will clearly outperform old mining rigs.
The times when Bitmain dominated the Bitcoin mining market are already a little while ago. With the new Antminers S19 and 19 Pro, Bitmain has announced two new mining rigs that put the previous rigs in the shade. The Chinese mining giant Bitmain issued a press release a few hours ago presenting the technical data of the new Antminer S19 and S19 Pro models, which will be available in two versions each.
The most powerful rig has a hash rate of up to 110 TH/s, twice the performance of the previous top model, the Antminer S17, which reaches 55 TH/s. The Antminer S19 and S19 Pro of the next generation are available in two versions. The Antminer S19 is equipped with a hash rate of 95 TH/s, while the other variant has a hash rate of 90 TH/s. Both variants have a power efficiency of 34.5+/-%5 J/TH.
The Antminer S19 Pro has a hash rate of 110 TH/s, while the other variant has a hash rate of 105 TH/s, both variants have an impressive power efficiency of 29.5+/-%5 J/TH.
Announcing the #Antminer S19 Series! The #AntminerS19 has 2 variants, a 95 TH/s and 90 TH/s model, with a power efficiency of 34.5±%5 J/TH. The #AntminerS19Pro has a 110 TH/s and 105 TH/s model, both with a power efficiency of 29.5±%5 J/TH. Learn more at https://t.co/2ftncwFOl2 pic.twitter.com/opW7IcZ3yZ

The Antminer S19 series is equipped with a new generation chip from Bitmain, which achieves an energy efficiency of only 23 J/TH. This has been achieved by improving the circuit architecture, resulting in a significant improvement in energy efficiency, according to the official press release.
The Antminer S19 and S19 Pro are expected to achieve improved stability by using a new APW12 high efficiency power supply. In addition, the new firmware is also supposed to enable a faster start-up speed and an intelligent control mechanism.
Finally, the press release from Bitmain states:
The next-generation Antminer 19 series showcases industry-leading technology from Bitmain, allowing miners to efficiently mine Bitcoin under the SHA256 algorithm. The new iteration of Antminers boasts superior performance, enabling miners to optimize earnings and is designed for better operations ensuring long-term operations.
The launch dates and prices of the devices were not disclosed.
