BIOSTAR Debuts AMD AM4 Crypto Mining Motherboard

BIOSTAR first and only brand to offer cryp짯to mining mother짯board lin짯e짯up for all platforms

May 5th, 2017 Tai짯pei, Tai짯wan BIOSTAR is thril짯led to wel짯co짯me the latest addi짯ti짯on to its expan짯ding lin짯e짯up of spe짯cia짯li짯zed cryp짯to짯cur짯ren짯cy mining mother짯board with the intro짯duc짯tion of the BIOSTAR TB350-BTC. This mother짯board sup짯ports AMD셲 latest AM4 socket desi짯gned to work with the latest AMD AM4 APUs. With Bit짯co짯in mining ret짯a짯king a more attrac짯ti짯ve pri짯cing late짯ly, both old and new miners are still see짯king ways to impro짯ve the effi짯ci짯en짯cy and per짯for짯mance of their mining sys짯tems. Add to this the addi짯ti짯on of other cryp짯to짯cur짯ren짯cy like Ethe짯re짯um, Zcash and more which have pro짯vi짯ded so much more for the mining com짯mu짯ni짯ty to work with. With new GPUs offe짯ring more effi짯ci짯en짯cy than pre짯vious gene짯ra짯ti짯on, more GPUs can now be uti짯li짯zed for fas짯ter ROI. This trend in uti짯li짯zing mul짯ti짯ple VGA cards can cau짯se extre짯me짯ly hot ope짯ra짯ting con짯di짯ti짯ons which may affect sys짯tem sta짯bi짯li짯ty which may lead to ope짯ra짯ti짯on dis짯rup짯ti짯on with break짯downs and failures.

With this latest mother짯board, BIOSTAR is the first and only brand to offer a com짯ple짯te cryp짯to mining mother짯board lin짯e짯up for any appli짯ca짯ti짯on making it the stron짯gest fami짯ly of spe짯cia짯li짯zing mining mother짯boards out right now. Not to men짯ti짯on, BIOSTAR TB350-BTC is the first pro짯fes짯sio짯nal cryp짯to mining mother짯board for AMD AM4 plat짯form. This is spe짯ci짯al짯ly desi짯gned for AMD Ryzen lovers. They offer a per짯for짯mance and cost effec짯ti짯ve solu짯ti짯on to make cryp짯to mining easier for all.

BIOSTAR TB350-BTC with six PCI멷 slots for enthu짯si짯asts who wish to crea짯te an ulti짯ma짯te mining rig to be loa짯ded up with six gra짯phics cards to boost up the mining speed for hig짯her hash rate and make the mining per짯for짯mance most effi짯ci짯ent. The uni짯que짯ly desi짯gned two extra AUX power con짯nec짯tors sup짯port the suf짯fi짯ci짯ent power to enhan짯ce the per짯for짯mance of gra짯phics cards for more sta짯ble operation.

TB350-BTC is desi짯gned to with짯stand extre짯me ope짯ra짯ting con짯di짯ti짯ons that can cau짯se sta짯bi짯li짯ty issues on tra짯di짯tio짯nal com짯pon짯ents. The enhan짯ced natu짯re of the BIOSTAR PRO Series gua짯ran짯tees its mother짯board can endu짯re and avo짯id issues that can cau짯se down짯ti짯me and pro짯fit loss.
