As far as chip dump goes, it could just be that they were saving up the "bin 2" underperforming chips for a while and recently had enough to make an assembly run of T9.  That pricing is obnoxious, though!
Makes sense:
- Hey boss, what do we do with those crappy chips we can't put in the S9?
- Let's put them into T9s, sell them for twice the price
- Genius!

Looked into this and had the same thoughts.  That price for what you are getting is absurd. Supply and demand though I am sure they will sell out quickly which will only add to the price of the next version.

The new miner is rumour to be for btc or ltc?

BTC...theres no real competition for LTC miners right now so no reason to produce anything new.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

I just noticed that these T9+ miners are available for international sales at Eastshore.

https://www.eastshore.xyz/shop/bitcoin-miner-antminer-t9-16nm-asic-miner/

Price: 3999 USD

I've bought hardware from Eastshore in multiple occasions before, and they are legit.

You can buy an S9 for that price. Why settle for less profit?

Well I thought to tell about that, in case somebody wants to buy one.

T9s are more reliable than S9s, but less power efficient.

This sales price is too high for me personally.

I agree. I have no doubts that they will all sell quickly, but I won’t be buying one at that price. I was hoping the price would have been in the 2500.00 area.

According to Digitimes, TSMC has received an urgent order from Bitmain for 100k 12nm HPC (high performance computing) chips at the beginning of 2018. 10k chips will be delivered every month in Q1 2018 and more in Q2.

Yes, I can't make sense of them. You can just buy more S9s to make up for the failures.

Actually a number of forum members have stated they like the T9's specs in that they're basically bullet proof and the chip temps are much lower than an S9.  At least that's how the previous batches of T9's have been.

Oh i know, I manage over 1200 T9s and they are 10x as reliable as the S9. The problem is these are even less efficient then the original T9 at an absolutely insane price. Hence why I said this looks like a chip dump, especially if the rumors of bitmain announcing a new miner this month are true.

Why did you pick T9 over S9 in your farm? Just curious, as T9 is very expensive per TH comparatively speaking.

Fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful. Just HODL.

Wow, they're really trying to milk the puppy, They do realize people are buying at ridiculous price based on ephemeral profitability. They are aware that it will probably have faded before they even have to ship the units. Ruthless.

Yes.
So maybe the T9+ model has something like 159 chips..

@btc-haze
Thanks for the information!
Btw, can you fix the thread title?
I guess you meant to wrote 'T9+' instead of the 'T3+'?

Yes that basically click baited me here. "The fuck is a T3". Tongue

It's 28 t1s! Wahwah.
Sorry. Internet backbone humor.

Damn I was off - I always thought a T3 was .004503 OC-192s

Thanks for that.

PT Barnum was right...and then a bunch of used miners will be on sale in the next few months (when it gets warmer).

 Barnum is outdated - it's more like "every second" now not "every minute".

Quote is not verified to be Barnum's though. Maybe he stole the credit from a more gullible scammer ? Smiley

But you're right, Internet and crypto have made the world a paradise for these people.

I guess people who will be desperate to mine join the bitcoin mining craze will be the first ones to jump in and buy. Funny how like used antminer S9s get sold on ebay for more than $5000 and thats not yet even including the power supply. Its kind of scary that way and I understand why some people are now very skeptical about bitcoin calling it a bubble and all that FUD. Good thing I know better tho. Hodl.  Cool

Yep, and Bitmain took note.  They bumped the price of all their S9 and L3+ march preorders up $200-400 dollars each and they still all sold out.  It was funny.  Bitmain sold the last march batch L3+ at $1900 - $2000 until they sold out, then reduced the price back down to $1500 on their web site after they were already sold out.  My guess is they have all those miners currently running and then send them out after the 45 - 60 day "burn in" testing to make sure they all work according to spec Wink
