New Biostar TB150 Pro motherboard targets Bitcoin miners

The perfect motherboard for another day at the digital coalface.

Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency miners place some unique demands on their hardware. PCs set up for mining need to be always on, and very reliable - time is literally money. Biostar's new TB150 Pro motherboard aims to tackle that challenge, with a range of stability and endurance features.

The TB150 Pro supports 6th-gen Intel processors and uses the B150 chipset. It can handle up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 or DDR4-1866 RAM, and boasts Biostar's Tough Power Enhanced designs for high-current operation. 


And if you want a little bit of entertainment beside your mining operations, the TB150 Pro also features Japanese-made Audio Art Capacitors by Nichicon.
