Who would have thought that Bitcoin mining is surging ahead, and this has caused the price of graphic cards (as well as shares of Nvidia and AMD) to increase.
Yes, there were some scares a couple of weeks ago where Bitcoin price fell from its peak of $2,890 USD per 1 Bitcoin to $2,264 USD per 1 Bitcoin.
But that doesn’t stop the momentum or the interest in Bitcoin at all. In fact, the price of graphic cards has been on the rise as more and more demand for powerful graphic cards versus supply that is slowly trying to keep up.
This is because most modern graphic cards are more powerful and faster than mainstream processors that you can find in the market at the moment.
And because of this, most manufacturers are now shifting their focus and will be coming out with dedicated graphic cards that only serve to do Bitcoin mining while providing the stability to be running round the clock.
In particular Asus, they have come out with www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/MINING-RX470-4G/overview with the below features:
1. NON-STOP DURABILITY
Dual-Ball Bearing 0dB Fans - Without the problem of oil drying common in sleeve-bearing fans, the dual-ball bearing fans on ASUS Mining RX 470 last 2X longer. With reduced friction, they also run smoother, further improving card lifespan and cooling efficiency.
2. IP5X-Certified Dust Resistance
Longer Fan Lifespan - The fans in ASUS Mining RX470 graphics cards are certified under the International Protection Marking (IP code) as IP5X dust resistant for improved reliability and a longer lifespan. This stringent certification process ensures ASUS Mining RX470 graphics cards provide optimal fan performance, even under severe conditions.
3. Auto-Extreme Technology with Super Alloy Power II
ASUS graphics cards are produced using Auto-Extreme technology, an industry-first 100% automated production process, and features premium Super Alloy Power II components that enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, decrease component buzzing under load, and lower thermal temperatures for unsurpassed quality and reliability.
Meanwhile, for Asus MINING-P106-6G, it is said to provide up to 36% more hash-rate performance compared to cards in the same segment that are not tailored for mining. The new card is also engineered to be seriously durable, enabling 24/7 operation for uninterrupted coin production.
With GPU Tweak II also included for easy clock-speed and voltage tuning, ASUS Mining P106 provides the vital hardware and software tools cryptocurrency miners need to succeed in their quest to make a profit — making the new cards a great choice for building mining systems with the best possible cost-performance ratio.
This is just an example of the effects of the digital currency or cryptocurrency on the current environment. With Bitcoin mining gaining popularity each day, more and more people will be joining the bandwagon.
It seems that graphic cards manufacturers are among the few who will be reaping the benefits of these.
