More and more users are mining cryptocurrencies like Ethereum. To simplify the process of building an Ethereum and other cryptocurrency mining rig, Biostar has released a dedicated motherboard. The manufacturer Biostar has announced the launch of the motherboard for mining TB560-BTC PRO socket LGA1200.
We should note that Ethereum is expected to ditch proof-of-work consensus for proof-of-stake. Ethereum 2.0 will change consensus and mining rig they will no longer be needed. Although it is true that mining with graphics cards is expected to move to other cryptocurrencies such as Ravencoin, GRIN or Ethereum Classic. Hence, this Biostar motherboard is quite interesting.
Biostar TB560-BTC PRO MINING, an Ethereum mining motherboard with LGA1200 socket
A long time ago Biostar launched TB560-BTC PRO motherboards with LGA1151 socket for Intel 5th and 6th Generation processors. Since then, this manufacturer had not updated its range of Ethereum mining motherboards, until now. this new LGA1200 socket motherboard It is compatible with Intel 10th and 11th Generation processors.
The motherboard in question has support for a total of 12 graphics cards. One PCIe 4.0 x16 slot has been provided and a total of 11 PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. Of course, for the PCIe 3.0 x1 slots we will need the riser adapters.
This motherboard seeks to meet the demands of users who wanted a complete solution for Ethereum mining. It is updated to support the latest processors.
This Biostar TB560-BTC PRO motherboard has been manufactured to offer great robustness and durability. It has two DDR4 RAM memory slots supporting working frequencies of up to 2933MHz. It integrates the Realtek RTL8111E LAN chipset and also has an M.2 slot for storage units.
Specially optimized motherboard
It seeks to offer this motherboard for Ethereum mining, a high quality and performance solution. The design is greatly simplified, not counting the VRM phases of a passive heatsink. One of the reasons is that the processor will hardly have a load in the mining process.
It features basket motherboard with good connectivity to meet the needs of miners. A PS/2 port has been integrated to connect conventional keyboard or mouse. In addition, it has four USB 3.2 Gen1 ports and two USB 2.0 ports.
It also integrates an HDMI 1.4 port and a VGA output for video, although in principle we will not use them. It also has audio outputs managed by the Realtek AL897 controller. Although for cryptocurrency mining these connection ports are not especially necessary.
Biostar has not yet revealed the availability and price of this new TB560-BTC PRO motherboard. Of course, they emphasize that this is a solution to obtain the maximum return on investment. They also highlight that it is designed to offer great durability and offer a high-quality after-sales service.
