It looks like ASUS and NVIDIA are in the mining business now. Over on the ASUS website a mining card was found that is not an AMD product. We already know how well the NVIDIA graphic cards are and now they are taking that to the bitcoin mining community. This will surely help cut the cost and the supply demand for the AMD cards everyone so desperately wants. some one wil have to grab a bunch of these and test them against their counter parts to see who might be the best.
ASUS states “ASUS Mining P106 is designed for coin mining with high-efficiency components – delivering maximum hash-rate production at minimum cost.”
Dual-Ball Bearing Fans run smoother by reducing friction, further improving 2X longer card lifespan and cooling efficiency.
IP5X-Certified Fans for dust resistant and longer fan lifespan.
Industry Only Auto-Extreme Technology with Super Alloy Power II delivers premium quality and best reliability.
GPU TWEAK II allows you to modify GPU clock, memory clock and voltage to gain the best hash rate.
ASUS Mining P106 enhances the megahash rate by up to 36% compared 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.
