Bitmain announced the start date of sales of a new line of bitcoin miners Antminer S17



The company Bitmain, a Chinese manufacturer of equipment for mining cryptocurrency, the company called the release date of its new device lineup Antminer S17, writes Finance Magnates.

According to today's announcement, the miners of the new generation will go on sale on April 9 and will be available to buyers all over the world. The devices are intended for the extraction of cryptocurrency on the SHA256 algorithm, including Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash . The company claims that the energy efficiency of the second-generation 7-nm chips used in the S17 model is 30% higher than that of their predecessors.

“Although the new generation devices are compact and comparable in size to the previous S15 line , they will have a higher hash rate, but the company does not disclose specific values ,” reports Finance Magnates.

As part of the new series will be released three models of devices:

  • Antminer S17,
  • Antminer S17 Pro,
  • Antminer T17.

“Technically there are no limits for development. However, in the short term, the driving forces of the next generation of miner development beyond 7-nm chips face obstacles due to physical constraints. If we take into account the rapid pace of development of this space over the past years, the industry will soon have to find out what the new generation of miners will be. In the near future, 7-nm chips will remain the preferred option in the context of performance and economy , ”said the launch manager for new devices.

According to sources, the Bitmain plan may be to launch a new line of miners in the run- up to bitcoin halving and try to regain lost positions in the market.
