ASUS, the Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer has recently announced a motherboard that is specifically built for crypto-miners. It has a density with support for up to 20 graphics cards. The H370 Mining Master enormously replaces its predecessor’s x1 spaces with slots of vertical PCIe-over-USB ports.
A great mining motherboard- H370 Mining Master
The Mining Master is an ATX board that uses the H370 chipset, so it supports Coffee Lake generation CPUs, including the Intel Core, Pentium, and Celeron processors (the latter of which miners are most interested in). It also features support for Gigabit LAN, two SATA 3 6Gbps ports, and two DIMMs of DDR4 RAM (32GB and 2666MHz max).
ASUS is using PCIe over USB in light of the fact that miners tend to utilize PCIe 1x to 16X risers for their GPUs. Mining doesn’t require an enormous measure of data transfer capacity, so 1x openings are bounty. The 1x and 16x riser sheets are associated by means of a USB 3.1 link, consequently expelling the messiness related with 1x risers by simply utilizing a USB space. ASUS additionally asserts this is considerably sturdier also, bringing about less unintentional detaches.
Notwithstanding the help for twenty GPUs, the Mining Master likewise underpins up to three PSUs with its three 24 Pin Power connectors found straightforwardly on the board. This board will likewise accompany ASUS’s GPU State Detection GUI, demonstrates to you the condition of each GPU before booting. It can recognize if a card is working effectively in each port and if there is no card introduced. It can likewise let you know whether there is a blunder and appoints a code to it so you can investigate the issue.
The company explains that: “Mining is a numbers game; it’s only worthwhile if the value of the cryptocurrency you generate exceeds the cost of producing it. Increasing the number of graphics cards per node is a great way to stack the deck in your favor.”
Asus isn’t the first company to make a big appearance a mining motherboard, however it’s been driving with the quantity of GPUs permitted in a solitary board while giving them forceful valuing. Most board available today go from $50 to $400, much like their consistent partners. While Asus hasn’t affirmed valuing, the H370 shouldn’t be too far-removed from that range when it winds up accessible beginning in Q3 2018 in North America.
