台湾地区电子企业华硕(Asus)正在试图让加密货币挖矿变得更简单,他们推出了一款专门用于处理挖矿所需复杂运算的主板。

这款在5月底亮相的新主板支持多达20种显卡以及提供高性能图像的硬件,这一特性对加密货币矿业至关重要。此外,新主板的设计使得用户可以方便地将USB集线插在印刷电路板(PCB)上。

许多加密货币矿工都自己装配电脑和主板,而主板是电脑的核心部件,也是运算的核心部分。华硕称,其新主板可以缩短挖矿前的设置时间,同时降低了其他主板经常出现的意外断开的机率,还能让故障诊断也变得更方便。

华硕在一份声明中称:“省下维护的时间,就意味着有更多时间挖矿。”

这款新主板将在7月至9月间上市销售。尽管华硕尚未公布价格,根据科技信息网站 The Verge的消息,这款主板的价格区间应该在50至400美元,与其他厂商已经上市销售的同类型主板价格相当。

这并不是华硕首次试水加密货币采矿业。去年9月,华硕发布了B250矿机专业主板,目前该款主板在亚马逊(Amazon)网站上的售价是141.98美元。

华硕声称,他们基于对早期主板的了解,对新款主板进行了设计上的改进。

华硕甚至认为:“随着我们的矿机主板的概念被市场所接受,加之对矿工需求的更深认知,我们的第二代产品可以说又重新定义了矿机主板业。”(财富中文网)

Taiwanese electronics company Asus is trying to make it easier for crypto miners by introducing a computer motherboard built specifically for handling the complex calculations necessary to dig, so to speak, for digital tokens.

The new motherboard, unveiled on late May, will support up to 20 graphic cards, or the hardware that lets computers produce advanced videos and images, that are essential to crypto mining. Additionally, it says the design makes it easier for users to plug in USB riser cables directly into the printed circuit board (PCB).

Many crypto miners build their own computers and the motherboard, one of the principle components of a computer, is an essential part of that process. Asus claims that its motherboard will shorten the time it takes to set up for mining while also reducing the chance of inadvertent disconnects common in other boards and make diagnosing problems easier.

“Less time maintaining your machine means more time mining with it,” Asus said in a statement.

The motherboard will be available sometime between July and September. Although Asus has not yet disclosed the price, according to tech news site The Verge, the motherboard should be in the same $50 to $400 price range of similar boards made by other manufacturers that are already on sale.

This is not the first time Asus has dipped into the cryptocurrency mining market. In September, the company launched the B250 mining expert motherboard, which now sells for $141.98 on Amazon.

Asus says that it used what it learned from its original motherboard to update the design for this latest launch.

“With the concept proven in practice and more insight gained on what miners need, we redefined the formula for a second generation,” said Asus.
