Bitmain’s Antminer T17 Available for Purchase, Claimed to Improve Profitability

On April 28, Bitmain, the world’s leading bitcoin mining hardware manufacturer, launched its latest mining model, the Antminer T17, which promises high-cost performance among its Antminer 17 series.

According to the company’s official website, the Antminer T17 can mine SHA256-BASED cryptocurrencies and offer a maximum hash rate of 40TH/second.

It boasts power consumption efficiency as its biggest improvement over previous T models. Equipped with the BM1397 chip adopting 7nm semiconductor manufacturing process, it promises more income for users at its advertised 55J/TH energy efficiency ratio.

Priced at $1,270, it is categorized as the entry model in the Antminer 17 series, though its hash rate and power efficiency fall short of the S17 Pro and S17 machines, while it offers similar features in stability and heat dissipation.

The ASIC miner is currently available for purchase on Bitmain’s official website, with its shipping time from May 5 to 20, 2019, the same as S17 and S17 Pro.

As the crypto market seems to be springing back to life after a long winter, a bunch of newly improved mining rigs have been released by various manufacturers this year. Bitmain has released S17 Pro and S17, T17 is the mining giant’s third next-gen mining rig rolled out this month; Canaan rolled out its Avalonminer 10 series with 31-33 TH/s; MicroBT claims its latest Whatsminer M20S could process a maximum hashrate of 72 TH/s; Small player StrongU’s 46TH/s miner Strongu Mining’s STU-8 (known as the U8) is also in the pre-sale…

While the bitcoin hashrate seems to have not yet responded to the recent bitcoin price rally, which has led to the increase of ASIC miners’ revenue these days. According to BitInfoCharts, the bitcoin hashrate has hovered around 45E without much surge since the start of 2018, while mining difficulty has seen small rise month by month from 5.6T in January to the recent 6.37T in April. With these next-gen mining rigs to be shipped out and put into use, will the bitcoin hashrate and difficulty surge? Leave your comment below.

    Thanks for the update! I have checked, the series of Antminer includes S17, S17 Pro, T17 are available on many online stores at an affordable price with improved features. The basic difference between S17 and S17 Pro is the presence of three modes of operation (Low Power, Normal and Turbo).
