ASRock showed off an upcoming motherboard at Computex that features 13 PCI-Express slots and is aimed squarely at crypto currency miners. The new H110 Pro BTC+ is an ATX board based on Intel’s H110 chipset and LGA 1151 socket (Skylake CPUs). The board is dominated by 12 PCI-E x1 slots and a single PCI-E x16 slot (I suppose for mounting a SAS card and Burst mining or running Storj heh), but it also has slots for two DDR4 DIMMs, a single M.2 port, and four SATA ports. The board also supports Intel Gigabit Ethernet, ELNA audio, USB 3.0 and DVI and HDMI video outputs for the Intel iGPU.

The upcoming board is powered by a 24 pin ATX, 8 pin EPS, and two Molex connectors for the PCI-E slots. The H110 Pro BTC+ appears to have a decent power phase setup for an H110 motherboard as well. ASRock showed off the motherboard running eight GPUs on Windows at Computex, though with Linux it is possible go beyond that and run all 13 GPUs. The H110 chipset does mean that miners would need to spend money on a newer CPU and DDR4 memory, but they would save money by buying fewer motherboards and/or port multipliers.

Exact specifications along with pricing and availability are still unknown, but expect the mining crowd to jump on this so if you are interested in it be sure to set up email alerts for when it will become available so that you can get in before the miners make it go out of stock everywhere like the RX 580s! (heh)

This is the crazy kind of stuff I love the PC industry for. More insanity like this, please.

Can you imagine this with EPYC... since it provide 128 PCIe lanes, could we see one CPU / motherboard drive 100+ GPU ?

I feel like the little kid riding the toy car from The Incredibles.

still waiting for fucking asrock to release the 370 mini itx board they promised us quite a while ago

come on asrock, make it available and we will buy

an x399 mini itx for threadripper would be really sweet and might be hard to pass up; imagine a relatively affordable 16 core chip on mini itx

How much Bitcoin can you mine out of this motherboard?
and how much can you make from it?
