BIOSTAR Reveal New AM4 Bitcoin Mining Motherboards!?



/ 5 months ago

BIOSTAR has just revealed their latest AM4 Motherboards, which have been designed for the Bitcoin-mining market. The two boards are the AM4 TA 320-BTC and the TB350-BTC, each featured on the AMD A320 and B350 chipsets respectively; the new boards support the new Ryzen chips, and 7 Gen A-Series processors.

Bitcoin mining isn’t something that’s mentioned often, even in our tech-loving circles, and it’s certainly a niche in the market now that the hype has died off… quite some time ago. So I’m pretty amazed they’re releasing these boards to a market sector that’s hardly booming, given that there’s not likely to be a huge benefit to upgrading at this time.

For those who do want to invest in these new motherboards, you’ll find they come with a narrow-ATX form factor, and feature a 6-phase VRM, with a 24-pin ATX, 4-pin Molex (optional), and 8-pin power connection setup.

The boards are a little spartan in terms of features, but you’ll find two DDR4 DIMM slots, a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot, and 6 x PCI-Express 3.0 x1 slots. There are just four SATA 6 Gbps ports, 6 channel audio, Gb Ethernet, and DVI/D-sub connections. For USB, you’ll find 5 x 3.0 and 2 x 2.0.

BIOSTAR did not mention a release date or pricing at this time.

    I know that name suggest that, but at least You guys should get facts straight.

    Nobody in right frame of mind will mine BTC off graphic cards. VGAs became completely useless at this good 2-3 years ago. Today VGAs are used for mining alt-coins, something that can’t be mined with designed mining ASICs (BTC).
