Rumour has it that ASRock may be making its official entrance into the graphics card market. To be precise; the motherboard maker may enter the market with its own custom-cooled AMD Radeon RX series GPUs.
The rumour first cropped up on DigiTimes; which reported that ASRock’s decision stems from the booming resurgence of GPU mining, along with the market’s insatiable demand for the core component. While there isn’t any concrete evidence, the DigiTimes report also states says that insiders informed them that ASRock may be entering the market sometime in April.
This move wouldn’t be ASRock’s first foray into the world of cryptocurrency either. Prior to this, ASRock has release a motherboard dedicated to GPU mining: the H110 Pro BTC+. Unlike conventional motherboards, the H110 Pro BTC+ comes with a total of eight PCIe slots, allowing miners to fit the same number of GPUs on the board.
Again, this is simply just a rumour, and as such, we do ask that you take this bit of news with a large pinch of salt. At least, until ASRock themselves makes an official announcement.
