The new ASIC generation from Bitmain makes the miner’s heart beat faster and could cause the hash rate to rise again.
Bitmain, the world’s leading manufacturer of mining hardware, has announced the sale of the new Antminer T19. The new generation of ASICS promises more efficiency in bitcoin mining and could boost the recently struck hash rate again.The Antminer T19 is the third model in the Antminer 19 series. According to Bitmain, the T19 is equipped with a hash rate of 84 TH / s ± 3% and has an energy efficiency of 37.5 J / TH ± 5%. According to the manufacturer, the Antminer T19 uses the same chips that are used in the Antminer S19 and S19 Pro. This “ensures efficient and efficient operation for mining cryptocurrencies using the SHA256 algorithm”. The delivery of the T19 is planned for the end of June.
New mining hardware could boost hash rate
Compared to the previous Antminer T17 series, the T19 is said to significantly increase performance and consequently increase the chances of successfully mined blocks for miners. In addition, the new ASIC generation could lead to an increase in the hash rate, which fell sharply shortly after the halving.
