ASUS Launches RX 570, GT 1060 GPUs For The Mining Industry
Cryptocurrency mining wasn't that popular a couple of years ago. Thanks to the advancing technology, this concept has made a bit of resurgence this year. This has, in turn, caused a rise in the demand for mainstream, reliable GPUs. Fans can consistently observe products like RX 570 and GT 1060 going out of stock - the reason is this. In order to facilitate the rising demand of the public opting for GPUs, ASUS recently took the wraps off its latest mining RX 470 and mining P106 graphics cards. According to the company, these cards are specially built to last longer and deliver an efficient experience to those in the digital currency mining industry.
The company while making the announcement stated that these recently-introduced versions come with major tweaks. These tweaks are designed to make the maximum hash-rate better. The best part about ASUS' latest innovation is that it is priced at a minimum cost. It's hardly debatable that coin mining is quite intensive by nature. These cards are introduced in order to simplify this intensity. ASUS RX 470 and P106 graphic cards are built using reduced-friction fans, Super Alloy Power II components coupled with IP5X dust-resistance. These factors ensure that the life of the card is long.
The cards also come with what the company described as, "reduced friction fans." These are specially targeted towards making use of a dual-ball bearing mechanism in order to prolong the lifespan of the cards. The importance of IP5X dust resistance is also well-known. This feature prevents any dust from entering the fans, thereby ensuring that the card's operation remains uninterrupted. This is especially beneficial because mining cards are usually running almost 24/7. They hardly stop functioning through extreme conditions. Therefore, the aforementioned factors help safeguard the card. Moreover, these cards not only last longer but also last for a greater amount of time.
The company went on to talk about the performance capacity of the two cards: Mining RX 470 and Mining P106. The company stated that these cards output approximately 36 percent better mega-hash rates. In other words, if users wish to set up a mining rig, then there is no better option than this, especially given the fact that this is among the best in the mainstream graphic cards market. These cards will be available for sale from July onwards. For those who wish to buy mining gear, they can log on to Overclockers UK and choose from a range of mining gear available.
