The Chinese company Biostar has released a multifunctional motherboard TZ590-BTC DUO. One of its applications is cryptocurrency mining.
- At the heart of the device is used chipset Intel Z590, compatible with processors Intel Core 10 and 11 generations.
- The board has eight PCI-Express 3.0 x1 slots connected via the Z590 PCH. There is also a separate PCI-Express 4.0 x16 slot, which is connected directly to the CPU.
- An additional four M.2-2280 slots create a wide range of options for the user. With M.2 adapters, up to 12 PCIe graphics cards can be connected to the motherboard.
- “This makes it an ideal base for a mining farm,” the developers note.
- Other connection options include a number of conventional ports, including D-Sub for iGPU video, HDMI and a PS/2 keyboard port.
- The board also has 10 SATA III ports with a total bandwidth of up to 6GB/s.
- The manufacturer does not disclose information about the price of the new product, but the site is available for pre-order.
- Recall that in early September, Nvidia’s top-performing CMP 170HX series mining chip successfully tested for Ethereum, Raven, and Conflux mining
The new BIOSTAR TZ590-BTC DUO motherboard features 8 PCIe 3.0 slots and one PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, as well as 10 SATA III ports and 4 M.2 Key M slots for Chia Coin cryptocurrency mining.
There is support for Intel’s 10th and 11th generation processors on the LGA1200 socket, with support for up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM. This is actually quite a beastly motherboard for mining cryptocurrencies, considering the number of connectors, ports and even RAM support that the BIOSTAR TZ590-BTC DUO motherboard has.
There are four USB 3.2 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and even a good old PS/2 port for a keyboard or mouse. There is also a LAN port, VGA output and HDMI output, as well as the usual 3.5mm audio outputs.
