Mine For Crypto Faster and More Efficiently With the New Bitmain Antminer S19

Antminer S19 Review

When it comes to mining for cryptocurrencies, it’s common knowledge that a miner’s investment in equipment directly relates to their profitability. This is why we’re introducing the new generation of Bitmain ASICs, the Antminer S19, which is more reliable, efficient and profitable than previous editions. A vast improvement on its predecessor, the S17, the manufacturer has listened to user feedback and made the following changes to the latest iteration of the product:

Radiator System Redesign

One of the biggest user complaints with the S17 Antminer referred to the inefficient way the radiator operated when the device was overheating which often dumped heat directly onto the chips in some instances. The S19 solved this problem by replacing the several small radiators with a larger, more powerful singular radiator and physically attaching them to the device more securely with screws. The only con that can be seen with the new design is that they only attached the larger radiator to one side of the device as shown in the below image.

Thermal Interface Redesign

The second most encountered issue with the S17 was related to the thermal interface adhesive. At high temperatures, the TIM glue that was being used began to deteriorate and lose its original thermal transfer properties. Bitmain has fixed this completely in the S19 model, which now features a TIM paste on the chip side. This change single-handedly increased the thermal transfer between the chips and the fan making the average operating temperature of the S19 clock in at an optimal 77-78 degrees fahrenheit in an optimized room.

Power Supply Redesign

The third most common user complaint about the S17 was the failure of the power supply to the device; and while Bitmain repeatedly addressed this issue under warranty, the process was very time consuming. The new S19 edition device features a PSU APW12 v1.2 INPUT 200-240V 10A X2 C13 that will not start the fan if just a single power cable is connected, a great improvement over the last edition.

Firmware Dashboard Redesign

A welcome change to the latest Antminer miner was a completely overhauled firmware redesign for the S19 model; a common complaint being that previous interfaces looked very outdated and unprofessional. This modern and simplistic dashboard allows users to track the key metrics they need to closely monitor their hardware in order to maximize profit margins and efficiency.

Increase in Overall Profit Margins

Of course the biggest driving factor for the creation of the S19 model is obviously to put more crypto in the wallets of their users. The S19 outperformed the S17 at a two to one ratio, with the new specifications of 95TH +-3% 2500W 34J\TH.

In terms of profit, the S19 earns approximately 30% more than its predecessor at the current yield and cost of $0.05 per kw. Keep in mind, however, that the prices and returns, like the market, are constantly fluctuating.

The design changes and vast performance improvements to the Antminer S19 over the S17 show that Bitmain is at the forefront of Bitcoin mining technology. The new Antminer firmware and changes in device design and structure over the previous model will ensure a much more reliable and durable device over time. From doubling product performance to the 30% increase in average profitability, the next generation of crypto miners by Bitmain are made to continually improve the mining income of its users.
