About the Bitmain Antminer KS3
On May 16th 2023 Bitmain officially announced the Antminer KS3 on their Twitter page. This short description will take a look at this first KASPA mining machine from the famous ASIC manufacturer.
With an expected release date in Q3 2023, the KS3 boasts impressive features, including 8.3TH hashrate, 3200W power consumption, and an energy efficiency rating of 0.38J/G. These specifications are likely to position the KS3 as a popular choice for miners seeking to tap into the potential of Kaspa.
When compared to its recent counterparts, the Iceriver machines, the KS3 is anticipated to be more efficient and profitable. The higher hashrate and lower power consumption of the KS3 mean it can mine more coins while consuming less electricity, making it an attractive option, especially for those with budget constraints. On August 21st Bitmain announced the KS3 would actually be supporting 9.4TH/s at 3500W instead of the earlier advertised 8.4TH/s at 3200W.
This miner will need a 220v setup to run. Please consult an electrician if you don't have a power setup for this voltage.
