Bitmain, a leading ASIC mining equipment maker, has announced a new bitcoin miner that is even quicker than the company’s previous machine, which has a hash rate of 198 terahash per second (TH/s). The Antminer S19 XP Hyd., a liquid-cooled ASIC mining device that claims to produce 255 TH/s @ 20.8 joules per terahash (J/T), is the most recent model.

Bitmain, a developer of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), is making waves with its latest product. The Antminer S19 XP Hyd. is a new bitcoin miner from Bitmain that is even more powerful than the Antminer S19 Pro+ Hyd. machine that was announced in late January.
The Antminer S19 XP Hyd. claims to have a processing speed of 255 TH/s, which is significantly faster than today’s top machines, which only produce 100 to 112 TH/s. The new ASIC is also far quicker than the S19 Pro+ Hyd., which has a throughput rate of 198 TH/s. While that machine will not be available to the general public until May 2022, the most recent 255 TH/s machines will not be delivered until January through March 2023.

Both machines are now available for purchase on Bitmain’s website at the time of writing. The hydro-cooling miner will mine BTC, BCH, and BSV, according to specifications, and each unit will draw 5,304 watts from the wall.
A single S19 XP Hyd. will cost $19,890 and the company allows bulk orders as well.
Meanwhile the S19 Pro+ Hyd. is also available for $15,048 per unit, but the XP is a bit more efficient in terms of joules per terahash. The hydro-cooling Pro+ has an efficiency rating of 27.5 J/T, while the XP units offer 20.8 J/T.
The Microbt Whatsminer M30S++ and the Bitmain Antminer S19 Pro are still the top machines today, despite the fact that both are currently unavailable to the general market. Bitmain doesn’t have any S19 Pros (110 TH/s) in stock right now, but it is offering S19j Pro units with 104 TH/s for $9,984 each.
Meanwhile, the S19 Pro+ Hyd. costs $15,048 per unit, but the XP is slightly more efficient in terms of joules per terahash. The hydro-cooling Pro+ units have a 27.5 J/T efficiency rating, while the XP units have 20.8 J/T.
