Bitmain has Announced 16 THS Antminer S9 SE Bitcoin ASIC
Bitmain may not have a stock of their newer 7nm chips for the faster SHA256 ASIC miners, but they apparently have more of the old chips to push new miners, so hence the Antminer S9 SE is born. It is a 16 THS Bitcoin ASIC miner with built-in power supply(?) and a 1280W power consumption (80 J/TH power efficiency). The price of the new Bitmain Antminer S9 SE ASIC miner is set at $351 USD with the first batch to go on sale today scheduled for shipping in 21-31 July, 2019.
Although this may be far from the latest offerings in terms of hashrate, miners like the “new” Antminer S9 SE might be interesting for some people due to their low price and if they can be combined with low priced power it might be a good opportunity. The used market for Antminer S9 ASICs is booming lately due to the price of Bitcoin going up, so we see demand for the new miner for sure. Of course it also depends on the amount of units that Bitmain can deliver…
