Bitmain Has Announced The Antminer V9, a “NEW” 4 THS ASIC

7 Feb
2018

The demand for Bitcoin mining hardware seems to causing some strange decisions among the ASIC manufacturers and one such is apparently the announcement of the Bitmain Antminer V9. A small 4 THS SHA256 ASIC miner that uses 1 KW of power, so not very efficient, but it comes cheap at just $345 USD. There are already some speculations that this could as well be old hardware renamed and refurbished as a new product to clear up some old mining hardware used by Bitmain in their mining farms in China instead of having to relocate it to a new place. This batch has a MOQ (minimum order quantity) of 5 units and all ordered quantities can only be multiples of 5 (10, 15, 20 units and so on) with the maximum number of units in a single order up to 300. The shipping for all confirmed orders will start after March 1st and payment accepted is only in Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and USD wire transfer.

Bitmain Antminer V9 Specifications:
– Product model: V9
– Hash chip type: BM1580
– Total quantity of hash chips: 135 PCS
– Total quantity of hash boards: 3 PCS
– Total hash rate: 4TH ±5%
– DC voltage input: 11.60~13.00 V
– DC current input @12V DC: 79.59 A +10%
– DC Power @12V DC input: 955 W +10%
– 220VAC Power @25℃, 93% conversion efficiency of APW3: 1027 W +10%
– 220VAC Power efficiency @25℃, 93% conversion efficiency of APW3: 253mJ/MH+10%
– Weight (without package): 3.05 kg
– Operation temperature: 0-40 ℃
– Storage temperature: -40-85 ℃
– Operation humidity: 5%RH-95%RH, prevent condensation
– Noise: 76 dB
– Networking connection mode: Ethernet Cable
– Power connection mode: All three PCI-E ports are required to power the board. You can use one PSU to power multiple boards, but do not attempt to power one board with two PSUs.We suggest to prevent the control board to be powered up before hash boards be powered up.
– Size (Length*Width*Height, without package): 301mm*123mm*155mm

All in all not a very exciting new announcement of a new ASIC miner from Bitmain, efficiency wise the “new” hardware is disappointing for the performance it offers at the rated power usage. So it seems to be targeted at users looking for cheap hardware that have really cheap or even “free” power, otherwise it just does not seem economically reasonable to buy these miners at the moment.

Hi
I cannot find the algorithm of this miner. And hash rate 4THS equal to how much Mh/s?

4 TH/s is 4000 GH/h or 40000 Mh/s

The algorithm is SHA256, the one used by Bitcoin, 4 THS = 4,000 GHS = 4,000,000 MHS

WHere does Bitmain SAY this is a SHA256 miner at all?
If it is, the HORRIBLE inefficiency makes iit pretty much unprofitable RIGHT NOW.

Wow. Remarkably ineffective. If minimum qty is 5, then you could actually look at 5 units as a single unit: 20TH @ 4,775w. That’s like 1.5 S9s, at more than double the electrical cost.

Looks like a refurbish project for sure. Will avoid like the plague.

with current difficulty

if you have cheap power like in Washington state Douglas county at 2.3 cents per kwh, you would have a roi of just 170 days since they are so cheap. s9 have roi of 240 days.

if you are paying 16cents per kwh then don’t buy these.

It appeared Bitmain is emptying its mining facility by refurbishing its older hardware it once used for mining… Sometime odd is happening!

China is forcing the mining facilities out of the country, so it is to be expected for large mining operations to sell their older hardware instead of trying to relocate it and it seems Bitmain is doing just that with the V9…

can the v9 be used on other sha256 coins?

Yes

If you could buy that miner in a Country where the electricity cost y low, will you buy it?

It’s basically an S7 with a new sticker. It’s profitable if you have cheap power.

All brand-new shiny hardware, hashboards are laid out exactly like S7s, case is S7 design too. The controller board uses the ZYNQ like a S9 but a small like an S7. Bought one to become familiar with repairing them. Which I do in the US for less than a hundred bucks. 219.525.7771(txt)
