The Antminer S9 is another kind of ASIC miner manufactured by Bitmain, a Chinese manufacturer of mining equipment. It is widely regarded as one of Bitmain's most cost-effective miners. This article will examine the specifications as well as the Antminer S9 mining hashrate. The Antminer S9 model was launched in November 2017 and now consists of four versions.

The hashrate and energy consumption of the models are the most significant differences. The four models are numbered 12.5Th, 13Th, 13.5Th, and 14Th, respectively, based on their hashrate. Nonetheless, it's worth mentioning that the 14th variant might become very hot during operation, rendering it incapable of constantly maintaining the frequency it advertises.

In comparison to the Antminer S7s from the prior generation, the Antminer S9s features a considerable increase in energy efficiency, going from 0.25 W/Gx/s to 0.1 W/Gx/s. Additionally, the Antminer S9 utilizes 16 nm BM1387 chips, making it one of the most sophisticated ASIC miners in 2018. However, you should keep in mind that future generations of ASIC miners have been produced.

The Antminer S9s is optimized for bitcoin mining using the SHA-256 algorithm. The two most well-known cryptocurrencies that utilize this algorithm are Bitcoin and BitcoinCash. Other coins that are mineable include Acoin, Curecoin, Peercoin, and Terracoin.

Conclusion

Although the Antminer S9 was among the most powerful miners in 2018–2019, it is scarcely the greatest anymore. However, some crypto enthusiasts believe that mining Bitcoin with Antminer S9s is still profitable because of their comparatively low power consumption and great power efficiency, which can surely help you save money on your energy bill.

However, if you require a quieter miner, you may wish to investigate the Antminer S9i, the next generation of the S9 series. The Antminer S9i 14Th is more quiet and energy efficient, with a noise level of 76dB and a power consumption of 1320W, respectively.
