Creating a serious custom cryptocurrency mining rig requires specialized hardware and that includes crypto-specific motherboards, GPUs, power supplies, and for Chia farmers extra storage options. Biostar has today presented a motherboard dedicated to mining multiple cryptocurrencies, using Intel’s high-end Z590 chipset.
Called the TZ590-BTC DUO, at the heart of this beast, lies a Z590 chipset connected to the LGA 1200 socket, capable of housing all of Intel’s 10th and 11th generation of Core processors. It connects up to 128GB of DDR4 memory running at 3200 MHz, which was proven to be an important factor for Chia coin mining operations. But this board is not a one-trick pony as it can be used to mine many different cryptocurrencies.
A single PCIe 4.0 x16 slot and an additional eight PCIe 3.0 x1 expansion slots provide multiple opportunities to add your choice of GPUs for Ethereum mining. Just don’t forget the cables.
