The motherboard is designed for cryptocurrency mining and will be released in the third quarter of this year.
Asus is developing a new motherboard that can support a whopping 20 graphics cards.
The upcoming product is not intended for gamers. Asus has developed it specifically for crypto currency mining. On Wednesday, the PC maker unveiled the H370 Mining Master Motherboard, which will premiere next week at Computex in Taipei.
With the product, Asus wants to help mining enthusiasts get more money for their money. Owners can connect more GPUs to a single card, eliminating the need to buy another board, and installing more CPUs and memory to run their mining rigs.
Other mining motherboards can connect to six, seven, or even 1
"Mining is a numbers game, it's only worth it if the value of the cryptocurrency you produce exceeds the cost of manufacturing it." it in the press release from Asus.
In Support In all mining, the H370 can be connected to three power supplies via three primary 24-pin power connectors. The board also has an onboard diagnostic feature called "GPU State Detection," which scans the graphics cards for boot errors.
Asus has not said how much the new motherboard will cost, but it will fall the third quarter of this year for the North American market.
The product is a successor to the company's B250 Mining Expert board, which supports 19 graphics cards and is available for $ 250. The demand for this board exceeded the company's expectations and reached a "six figure" turnover, Asus said in a separate post.
Where you can buy 20 graphics cards is another matter. With cryptocurrency persisting, the industry faces a shortage of GPUs, fueling a price boost for newer graphics cards.
