Visually inspect the box when your miner's package arrives. Inspect the miner for cosmetic damage. In announcing the acquisition of the Greenidge S19 XP, Bitmain's business development manager for the NCSA region, Irene Gao, discussed the new S19s. Bitmain is manufacturing a limited edition green S19 XP miner and is offsetting 100 per cent of the carbon footprint associated with the production and first year of operation of these miners by purchasing carbon offset credits.
The journalist wrote that, compared to the current generation Antminer S19, the latest in the model series "is much improved". A much easier way to find the machine's IP address is by using the free IP Reporter software provided by Bitmain. For those who are new to using Antminer machines, understand that they are very noisy and emit a lot of heat. A mining pool is what you will need to connect your Antminer, in order to start mining for Bitcoin.
However, it appears that five bitcoin mining operations have been selected to be the first customers of Bitmain's S19 XP. Bitmain's Antminer s19 XP will also feature 5 nanometre (5 nm) chip technology and the semiconductors are sourced from Taiwan. The S19 XP will not only use 27% less electricity per terahash, but also claims to provide 37% more power per kilowatt-hour (kWh). For 120V it runs a combination L5-20R and L5-20P for the plug and receptacle, so you would have an L5-20P plug and a C13 connector for the miner.
The S19 XP leverages the SHA256 mining algorithm and has a power consumption of 3,010 watts from the wall. After powering up the Antminer device and connecting your Antminer to your local Internet network, you will need to locate the machine's IP address.
