MicroBT reveals the most powerful bitcoin mining rig to date

During the Bitcoin2023 conference in Miami, MicroBT, a leading manufacturer of Bitcoin mining machines, introduced three new mining rigs, including the market’s current most powerful offering.

According to Zuoxing Yang, the founder and CEO of MicroBT, their latest model, the WhatsMiner M53S++, delivers a computing power of 320 terahash per second (TH/s) while maintaining an efficiency of 22 joules per terahash (J/T). This makes it more powerful than Bitmain’s comparable model, the Antminer S19 XP Hydro, which achieves a maximum of 257 TH/s. However, it falls slightly behind in terms of efficiency compared to Bitmain’s offering, which operates at 20.8 J/T.

Among the new releases, the MicroBT lineup includes the M50S++ and M56S++ models. The M50S++ is specifically designed for air-cooling and offers a computing power of 150 terahash per second (TH/s). On the other hand, the M56S++ is designed for immersion cooling and provides an output of 230 TH/s. Both machines operate with an efficiency of 22 joules per terahash (J/TH).

MicroBT, the manufacturer of these new rigs, expressed their primary motivation for developing these machines as the utilization of sustainable energy sources. This comes in response to the ongoing debate surrounding the significant power consumption associated with mining activities.

In a press release, the company stated that Dr. Yang recognizes the importance of upgrading the power source for Bitcoin mining in light of the recently debated energy crisis and global warming concerns. They aim to find better solutions, such as embracing green energy, to address these challenges.

MicroBT is actively engaged in making adjustments to the voltage and frequency of the WhatsMiner, aiming to optimize its compatibility with solar power usage. Yang believes that solar energy is well suited for the decentralized nature of the Bitcoin network. In pursuit of this goal, MicroBT stated that it is committed to ensuring that its mining machines are well aligned with the utilization of solar power.
