Asus is developing a new motherboard that can support a whopping 20 graphics cards.
However, the upcoming product isn’t geared for gamers. Asus has specifically designed it for cryptocurrency mining. On Wednesday, the PC maker previewed the H370 Mining Master Motherboard, which will debut at the Computex trade show in Taipei next week.
By offering the product, Asus is trying to help mining enthusiasts get more bang for their buck. Owners can hook up more GPUs to a single card, saving the need to buy another board, and install more CPUs and memory to run their mining rigs.
Other mining motherboards can connect to six, seven or even 12 graphics cards. But Asus decided to up the ante and offer support to 20. The board does this by featuring a large section of PCI Express-over-USB ports that each card can connect to over a cable.
