Hashnest has recently received a feedback from our mining farms that S17 has a power consumption higher than what is stated on Bitmain. We hereby release the power consumption test result. As stated by Bitmain, S17 requires a power between 1975 W to 2417 W, we will use 2300 W as the actual power value charged.
For all mining contracts which are on pre-order now, Hashnest will use the listed power consumption on the manufacturer’s website as reference. Once the miners are commissioned, we will test its power consumption and take the average as the actual power value. In all fairness, we will publish these data.
Should there be a change in power consumption as a consequence of e.g. firmware upgrade, as long as the hashrates are not affected, we will test the power consumption again and release the results prior.
Please see below for Bitmain’s Antminer S17 specifications:
