Bitmain has unveiled its new liquid-cooled S19 ASIC mining rig, the Antminer S19 XP Hydro. The company recently announced the Antminer S19 Pro+ Hydro, its previous liquid-cooled ASIC miner. This latest model will now hit a whopping 255 TH/s hashrate, 28% more than the 198 TH/s of the S19 Pro+ Hydro and 82% more than the 140 TH/s of the base model S19 XP.
The latest hydro-cooled device will also be the most efficient Bitmain yet, with an efficiency of 20.8 J/TH and a power consumption of 5304 W. This compares to the S19 Pro+ Hydro at 27.5 J/TH with a power consumption of 5445 W rated while the S19 XP is rated at 21.5 J/TH and 3010W. These numbers also make the S19 XP Hydro more than twice as powerful as the base model S19 Pro.
Miners need as much computing power as possible to maximize their mining profits as Bitcoin only gets harder to earn so this announcement comes at the perfect time as BTC mining difficulty has hit a new all-time high.
More powerful hardware, on the other hand, runs at higher temperatures, which is why Bitmain once again opted for a liquid-cooled solution to keep S19 XP Hydro's temperatures in check, preventing overheating and ensuring peak performance at all times.
