Biostar Condemns Full Shipment of Radeon RX 580 GPUs to Mining Despite Continued GPU Shortage

Biostar, a company that makes money off the backs of miners, has started selling a new mining system featuring eight Radeon RX 580 graphics cards. It claims to ensure wide-scale availability for interested parties, implying that he has a large number of GPUs for sale.

For the most part, manufacturers have claimed that they do not provide GPUs to crypto miners. Even Sapphire, which specializes in GPUs for miners, doesn’t promote it on its website. AMD and Nvidia are making a concerted effort to get their GPUs into the hands of gamers, but for commercial rather than charitable reasons.

The unfortunate exception is Biostar. During the GPU shortage, as VideoCardz pointed out, the company made motherboards for mining rigs. Due to a need, it had previously been unable to offer GPUs in quantity to miners, but that seems to be changing now.

It’s a shame that AMD provides GPUs to Biostar. AMD’s goal, as far as we know, is to prioritize OEMs selling to gamers, though its options may be limited. Biostar’s new system, which we won’t name because you shouldn’t be buying one, features eight RX 580s, an Intel G4900 processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory. The RX 580s are gaming cards, according to Biostar, with proper cooling hardware and display outputs.

It’s a sad mess, but things could have been so much worse. In our latest GPU price update, we found the RX 580 to be one of the easiest cards to find and its bargain price approaching its MSRP. It’s not a great deal, but if you want one, you can get one.

The Biostar system is not particularly attractive in terms of crypto mining. Even though the difficulty of the network is increasing, the value of Ethereum continues to decline. And the RX 580 isn’t the best miner; it’s warm and old fashioned.
