ASRock Launches H510 Pro BTC+ Motherboard with 6 Full-Size PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots

ASRock has been accommodating the mining craze and the company is today launching its H510 Pro BTC+ motherboard designed to host a suite of GPUs. More precisely, the company has released a motherboard with six full-size PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. Measuring at the huge 50.1 x 22.4 cm, the motherboard is anything but small. There is room to install any triple-slot GPU with ease, as the slots are spaced out nicely. However, to feed all six GPUs at full speed, you would need as many as 96 lanes. That is why only the first slot runs at full x16 speed, while others are stuck at x1 speeds. The H510 chipset can not support 96 lanes naturally.

To power the board, you need a double 24-pin PCIe power connector. The power is regulated by four-phase power delivery with 50 Amp chokes. There is one SATA III connector and an M.2 PCIe 3.0 slot for M.2 SSDs that are up to 110 mm long. The motherboard is available for purchase at Newegg at the price tag of $279.

What an ugly turd of E-waste. Mining sucks.

And in a article a few entries down, ASRock also thinks crypto mining will reduce in the latter half of this year, sounds like good product planning then!

You have a really good point right there.

I don't see the market for this. Pretty much any motherboard can run 6 GPUs with risers, in a much more convenient ATX format.

They missed the boat.

And how much do risers cost again? At least 3 of them are needed, still don't see a market. Form factor is debatable since running 6 gpus isn't convenient in the first place. It's just that outside of mining there is no point to this.

Wait til linus does a review on it, with 6 3090 Ti's in NV link and benches CSGO on it

You can also use this sort of thing as a set for FAH, just saying :D

I could imagine that being nice base for machine learning mini-farm and similar. For BTC it doesnt even make sense. ETH and clones maybe.

In few weeks this will be discontinued like other mining motherbards were. Nothing survives in the bear market.

I'm wondering what's the point with 1x16 and 5x1? If it was some sort of mining-specific HEDT board with a ton of available PCIe lanes for a bunch of "bestselling" RTX3060s - it would've been a killer product (3-4 months ago, though :D ). With mining limiter circumvention most miners have been selling their old H110/H310/B150/B250/B350 mining boards in favor of old HEDT/WS x99 boards, or at bare minimum x470 and Z370 with x8x8 mode. Used market is oversaturated as is, no one needs another generic board that can only save you $10 on risers and cables.

Risers are not that expensive, quick search of amazon, about 7-9usd each. Its the same price from when I was mining.

Mining can be done with x1 just fine. Get a dual core processor and 6 risers or 8 per motherboard. Or get this

The point is not mining on PCIe x1, but having marketable feature other than what literally every cheapest "gaming" or any old mining board has. Might as well get a shitty GB Z390D for $85-90 and call it a day.
The reason I mentioned PCIe x8 is RTX3060. It's the cheapest 30-series card (comparing to other 30-series, I mean), it's the easiest to find, and the most brain-f#$%g to work with due to mining limiter. Right now you'll either have to shell-out upwards of $600 on a decent workstation combo in order to run 3+cards in a rig, or waste lots of money, space and energy on having a dedicated rig for each pair of 3060s. Just make a big-ass board like this on an aging x299, route 5x8 + 1x4 and you have a best-selling mining board. Hell, people are still willing to pay upwards of $450 for an old used Asus X99-E WS or severely overpay for upmarked Huanan x99 boards cause it makes more financial sense than building 2 or 3 rigs.

Mining is'nt affected from X16 or X8 to X1.

Do you guys even read what I'm writing? RTX 3060 with soft hashrate limiter can only be circumvented if they are at bare minimum on PCIe 3.0 x8 and have an active display connected.
It will mine on x1, but at half speed. The most you can get is around 60% of its capabilities on HiveOS w/ a new tweak.

you clearly havent paid attention to what he's saying, the new cards with the hashrate limiter have specific conditions that need to be met
