Asus, one of the world’s largest technology hardware makers, has unveiled a pair of new graphics cards designed for cryptocurrency mining.

Asus Mining RX 470 and Mining P106 both use NVIDIA GeForce GTX technology to run as efficiently as possible to mine the most cryptocurrency for the smallest cost. The Mining RX 470 is a customized Radeon RX 470 (with 4GB of video RAM), whereas the P106 appears to be a re-purposed GeForce GTX 1060 with no video output provided whatsoever (the RX 470 does have a single DVI connector).

Asus Mining P106 is designed for coin-mining with high-efficiency components, delivering maximum hash-rate production at minimum cost. Asus claims that Mining P106 enhances the megahash rate by up to 36% compared to cards in the same segment that are not tailored for mining.

Asus Mining P106 also includes the dual ball bearing fans that are IP5X-certified to be dust resistant, thus offering a longer fan lifespan. ASUS also claims that they have used components that enhance efficiency, reduce power loss, decrease component buzzing under load, and lower thermal temperatures for unsurpassed quality and reliability.

The RX 470 will be available worldwide, according to Asus, while the Mining P106 card will be available in China and Eastern Europe only beginning in July.
