Blitz review of Antminer S17e and Antminer T17e (price, specifications, payback)

Bitmain has released two new ASIC models for mining bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies based on the SHA-256 algorithm. We are talking about the models Bitmain Antminer S17e and Antminer T17e.

Specifications of Antminer S17e

Antminer S17e should go on sale on September 9, 2019. It is made in the standard form factor for the latest models of the manufacturer - two ASICs seem to be located one above the other, and the power supply is fixed to the right.

Algorithm / coins - SHA-256 / BTC, BCH, BSV, BSA, etc. (over two dozen cryptocurrencies in total);

Hashrate - 64 Th/s;

Power Consumption - 2,880 W;

Energy Efficiency - 45 J/terahesh;

Dimensions (length, width, height) - 338x175x304 mm;

Net weight - 10.5 kg;

Chips - 7 nm, 144 pieces on three boards;

The number of fans - 4;

Noise level - 80 dB;

The date of first shipment is scheduled for November 1-10, 2019.

Price and payback period

The cost of the new ASICs is $ 2,700. With an electricity cost of $ 0.05 per day, ASIC will bring $ 14.5 at the current BTC rate. This exceeds $ 435 per month. The payback period of ASIC in this case will be more than 6 months.

Specifications of Antminer T17e

The Antminer T17e will also officially go on sale on September 9, 2019. It also consists of two integrated ASICs with a side-mounted power supply. Unlike the S17 model, this ASIC is smaller, lighter and less energy efficient.

Algorithm / coins - SHA-256 / BTC, BCH, BSV, BSA, etc. (over two dozen cryptocurrencies in total);

Hashrate - 53 Th/s;

Power consumption - 2 920 W;

Energy Efficiency - 55 J/terahesh;

Dimensions (length, width, height) - 298x175x304 mm;

Net weight - 9.5 kg;

The number of fans - 4;

Noise level - 80 dB;

The date of first shipment is scheduled for November 1-10, 2019.

Price and payback periods

The price for the “T” model is still unknown, but based on the optimistic scenario, we can assume that it will be $ 1,660. With an electricity cost of $ 0.05 per day, ASIC will bring $ 12.1 at the current BTC rate. It will replenish the wallet by $ 365 in a month. The payback period of the ASIC will be just over 4,5 months in this case.

According to the manufacturer:

“Both new models were designed to work more stably in the long run with the goal of lowering customer service costs. This is possible thanks to the heat dissipation technology with two tubes, which increases the efficiency of heat dissipation. The models also feature a more secure software system to prevent malicious attacks”.
