New Ethereum Miner Performs Like 32 GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs


Chinese mining firm Bitmain has released a teaser of the company’s upcoming Antminer E9 Ethereum miner. The company stated that the Antminer E9 will launch very soon although it didn’t commit to a specific date.

The Antminer E9 reportedly delivers an Ethereum hash rate up to 3 GH/s, which is equivalent to having 32 of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 (Ampere) graphics cards in unison. If Bitmain delivers on its promise, the Antminer E9 will be the fastest ASIC miner in town and even outperforming Linzhi’s Phoenix Ethash ASIC miner that delivers up to 2,600 MH/s. Bitmain didn’t reveal too many details about the Antminer E9 except that it draws up up to 2,556W and flaunts a power efficiency of 0.85 J/M. Therefore, the Antminer E9 isn’t just faster than the Phoenix miner, but also more energy efficient. For comparison, the Phoenix miner pulls 3,000W, meaning the Antminer E9 has a 14.8% lower power consumption.
