AMD to create eight new crypto mining rigs

AMD, a leading manufacturer of graphics cards (GPU), has partnered with Sapphire, ASROCK, ASUS, MSI, Biostar, TUL and Rajintek to provide the next best crypto mining rigs. The mining rigs to be created are expected to cater to the varied expectations and purchasing power of each client.

Companies-partners will offer eight different crypto mining rigs ranging from solutions such as the stability-focused ASUS I to high-performance options such as SAPPHIRE INCA CS-14 Series powered by 14 AMD Radeon RX 470 GPUs. Prices of these miners have not yet been unveiled on the website.

The new mining rigs to be rolled out by AMD and its partners are expected to yield more profit for miners using GPU to mine.

Unlike ASIC-based miners which deliver much higher computing power but can only mine bitcoin, GPU-based ones are capable of mining different coins such as Ethereum-based coins, Monero, Bitcoin Gold, Zcash, and many others. Many amateurs thus prefer GPU miners since there’re a large variety of coins they can mine and are more versatile since they can be used to other things such as gaming and are much easier to resell.
