In the Bitcoin mining industry, innovation is the name of the game. The relentless pursuit of higher hash rates, lower energy consumption, and greater efficiency has led to the development of some truly remarkable hardware. The latest entrant to this competitive field is the DesiweMiner K10 Pro, a Bitcoin ASIC miner that promises to redefine the boundaries of mining efficiency and performance.
Unveiled at the Mining Disrupt 2023 conference, the DesiweMiner K10 Pro has been hailed as a high-temperature mining marvel. It combines a high hash rate, low energy consumption, and innovative convenience features, while also adhering to the principles of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance), becoming the focal point of the event.
The K10 Pro surpasses 170TH/s of hash rate, making it one of the top performers among similar devices from competitors like Bitmain and Whatsminer. It sets a new standard for low energy consumption, achieving a remarkable energy efficiency of just 20.5 watts per terahash, allowing miners to save significant power costs and aligning with the ESG commitment to environmental protection.
One of the key features that contribute to the K10 Pro’s efficiency is its cooling system. The miner is equipped with copper heat pipe tubes that directly contact the chips, allowing for efficient heat dissipation. This unique design allows the K10 Pro to fit more chips while maintaining optimal cooling, contributing to its high performance.
The K10 Pro has undergone rigorous testing, ensuring it operates efficiently and stably within a wide temperature range (-10°C to 50°C). Its exceptional performance in extreme high-temperature environments, makes it ideally suited for challenging conditions.
Coindad’s In-Depth Review and Testing
Our friend Coindad recently got his hands on the K10 Pro and shared his in-depth review and testing feedback. It’s important to mention that the first K10 Pro in the world is owned by the Bitcoin Mining Museum, and the initial findings were released by Coindad. We owe a debt of gratitude to Coindad for his in-depth review and testing of the DesiweMiner K10 Pro.
He was particularly impressed by the miner’s performance in high-performance mode, where it achieved a hash rate of 198TH with a power consumption of 4,950W. He also noted the miner’s smart features, such as its ability to recognize when it’s getting hot and lower its power usage and hash rate accordingly. This prevents overheating and ensures the miner continues to operate efficiently, even in challenging conditions.
Coindad also highlighted the miner’s built-in 0.96″ OLED display, a first in the mining industry. This display provides real-time operational status and details, enhancing maintenance and management efficiency.
During his testing, Coindad explored the miner’s SmartBoost feature, which is designed to push the hash rate to 200TH. This feature requires the user to input their own data for an AI algorithm to kick in and achieve the maximum hashrate.
Another interesting feature Coindad noted is the miner’s self-health checks. When you switch from regular mode to high performance, the miner gradually increases its amperage, conducting health checks on the chips at each stage. This process, which takes about 30-40 minutes, ensures that the chips are healthy enough to handle the increased load, thereby extending the lifespan of the miner.
One of the often-overlooked aspects of miners is the noise it generates. This can be a significant factor for miners operating in residential areas or small spaces, where excessive sounds can be disruptive. The DesiweMiner K10 Pro shines in this regard, clocking in at just 64.4db. This is significantly quieter than competing models from Bitmain and Whatsminer. At this decibel, you can comfortably have a normal conversation at a distance of 3 feet from the miner. This makes the K10 Pro not only a powerful and efficient miner, but also a surprisingly quiet one, adding to its appeal for a wide range of mining setups.
In the process of reviewing, tear down and testing the DesiweMiner K10 Pro, Coindad was assisted by the expert team at HMtech. Gerald Wilkie, the CEO of HMtech, generously approved the use of company time for this endeavor, with his lead technicians providing invaluable help. Their collective expertise and dedication played a crucial role in the comprehensive breakdown and understanding of the K10 Pro’s capabilities. We extend our gratitude to Gerald Wilkie and the HMtech team for their significant contributions to this review.
Coindad confirmed that the K10 Pro is a real, working product. The first batch of 1,000 units has already sold out, and the next batch is expected to hit the market in about four months. The manufacturer is already working on a second model, which is expected to exceed 250TH, but that’s a development we’re likely to see next year.
