Biostar condemns and entire shipment of Radeon RX 580 GPUs to Mining despite the ongoing GPU shortage

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

For the most part, manufacturers have pretended that they aren’t supplying GPUs to crypto miners. Even Sapphire, which specialises in GPUs for miners, does not promote them on their website. Both AMD and Nvidia make a concerted effort to get their GPUs into the hands of gamers, but for commercial rather than charitable reasons.

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

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

It’s a sad waste, but things could have been far worse. In our most recent GPU price update, we discovered that the RX 580 was one of the most straightforward cards to come by and that its second-hand pricing was approaching its MSRP. It’s not a terrific deal, but if you want one, you can get one.

The Biostar system isn’t particularly appealing in terms of crypto mining. Even as network difficulty rises, Ethereum’s value continues to decline. And the RX 580 isn’t the best miner; it’s hot and outdated.
