The situation on the crypto-currency market stabilized again, which will positively affect the demand for mining devices. In anticipation of this, the Chinese company Zotac, a partner of the Nvidia graphics card developer, recently presented the B150 Mining motherboard.
The board runs on the Intel B150 chipset, supports Intel Kaby Lake and Skylake microarchitecture processors on the LGA 1151 socket. The most necessary thing this motherboard can boast to fans of virtual currency production is the number of slots for connecting video accelerators. There are seven PCI-Express 3.0 x1 ports and one PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slot. The design also provides four SATA 3.0 slots with a capacity of 6 Gb/s, and two slots for installing DDR4-2400 memory, which support a maximum capacity of 32 GB modules.
The rear panel has a right amount of different connectors: HDMI for image output, four USB 3.0 ports, two PS/2 sockets for connecting peripherals, RJ-45 for network connection and three ports for Jack 3.5 mm. Dimensions of the device are 311mm x 201mm.
B150 Mining is a budget solution in its segment. The retail price of the innovation is about 80 dollars.
