Bitmain Launched Two New S17 Bitcoin ASIC Miners

Leading specialized integrated circuit (ASIC) application developer Bitmain announced two new S17 miners in a news release shared with Cointelegraph.

The two new ASICs, the S17e and the T17e, will be released on September 9th. The company claims that both models show improvements, which should translate into higher performance, more stable operation and longer life.

ASIC specifications released
Bitmain has also released the specifications of both recently announced mining machines. The S17e has a hash rate of 64 TH / s and operates at a power output of 45 J / TH, while the T17e offers a hash rate of 53 TH / s and a power output of 55 J / TH.

Both the S17e and the T17e have a dual-tube heat dissipation system, in order to improve the material’s longevity and stability.

In addition, Bitmain also claims that software embedded in the two new ASICs has higher cybersecurity standards to prevent malicious attacks.

Sales and Delivery Times
The S17e and T17e will come in three batches. The first batch will be available for sale on 9 September and is expected to be delivered in the first 10 days of November. The second lot will go on sale on September 10 and will run for the period starting on November 11 and ending on November 20.

The third and final batch will go on sale on September 11 and its delivery is scheduled for the period beginning on November 21 and ending on November 30.

As Cointelegraph announced in August, Bitmain will increase its capabilities by 50% over the next six months thanks to the giant hardware order.

The delay program has been announced
The company also announced compensation for delivery delays. As part of this new initiative, customers whose deliveries are delayed will be compensated by Bitmain with coupons for each day that their order is delayed. The compensation is based on the pay per share of the mining organization, with the cost of electricity being deducted.
