ASIC producer Bitmain announced two new S17 miners in a press release. The two new mining ASICs, namely the S17e and the T17e, will both be launched today September 9th. The company claims that both the new models feature improvements, which should translate to higher efficiency, more stable operation and more longevity.
The company released the specifications of the newly announced mining machines. The S17e has a hash rate of 64 TH/s and operates with a power efficiency of 45 J/TH, while the T17e offers a hash rate of 53 TH/s and a power efficiency of 55 J/TH.
Both the S17e and the T17e feature a dual tube heat dissipation system, which reportedly improves how efficiently the machines can dissipate heat. This should enhance the longevity of the hardware and its stability.
Bitmain went on to claim that the software embedded into the two new ASICs has higher cybersecurity standards to prevent malicious attacks.
The S17e and T17e will be released in three batches. The first will be available for sale on September 9th 19:00 GMT+8, and expected to be delivered in the first 10 days of November. The second batch will be sold on the same time on the next day and will be delivered starting from November 11th and ending on the 20th of same month.
