The new device can generate a 3% higher hash rate of 84 TH/s with a 5% increased power-efficiency of 37.5 J/TH. The device will work on the new APW12 power supply which comes with upgraded firmware. This helps in getting better start-up speeds and optimize mining for the users. However, this is only the capability of the lowest end model. The Antminer S19 Pro and S19 are able to generate more hash power. The S19 has a hash power of 95 TH/s while the S19 Pro generated 110 TH/s.
