Bitmain announced the sale on Twitter and Wechat on Nov. 6, 2018.

The company’s website has one preview photo of the machine, which looks far different than the previous Antminer series. At the moment the website overview, pricing, specifications, and photo gallery is unavailable for public viewing. However, the company’s announcement on Wechat explained that the S and T series are SHA256 miners that can mine bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin core (BTC) with the mining capacity as low as 42 joules per terahash.

“The next-generation of chip integrates up to 1 billion transistors and is optimized algorithmically — With a unique circuit structure and low power technology, the chip energy efficiency ratio will be as low as 42 J/TH,” the Bitmain announcement explained on Wechat.

Of course, the difficulties of both the BTC and BCH chains coupled with the S and T series pricing will determine how profitable the new devices will be mining these cryptocurrencies. Further, Trump’s latest tariffs may affect prices for those who are importing Antminers to the U.S. There’s also a lot of competition that’s been announced over the past few months as a few other manufacturers are planning to launch next-generation machines. For instance, Canaan’s Avalon 911 will be powered by a 7nm semiconductor, and the firm claims it will perform at 18 terahashes per second (TH/s) and have a power consumption of 1440w.
