Bitmain is teasing with the apparently soon to be launched new Ethash miner called Antminer E9 that is supposed to be offering 3 GH/s mining hashrate with 2556 Watts of power usage and 0.85 J/M power efficiency. This is what they claim to be the equivalent of 32 RTX 3080 graphics cards and it roughly is in terms of performance. So, the Antminer E9 is going to be offering similar performance to 32x Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU mining rig mining Ethereum with GPUs optimized for close to 100 MH/s hashrate, but with power usage at just about 1/3 of what the GPUs will need. Hopefully with a price that is much less compared to how much these video cards will cost you currently, though there is still no exact launch date or pricing information released…
Bitmain however is not the first to upgrade their already outdated dedicated Ethash miner, namely the Bitmain Antminer E3 that has been around for ages. There are other competitors on the dedicated ETH miners market, namely Innosilicon and Linzhi. Innosilicon’s new ETH miner – the Innosilicon A11 is supposedly going to deliver 2100 MH/s Ethash hashrate with just 2300W of power usage, while the newcomer Linzhi and their Linzhi Phoenix ETH miner is supposedly capable of 2600 MHS hashrate for Ethash with a power usage of 3000-3500W. So, Bitmain is going to be doing better in terms of performance and with lower hashrate if the specs of their AntMiner E9 ETH miner end up to be right on the spot. It is very likely however that the price will also be reflecting the better hashrate and lower power usage as well, so it could be more expensive than the slower alternatives.
