Popular video card company Sapphire Technology, the major supplier of video cards based on AMD-chipsets has announced the launch of its very first cryptocurrency mining rig. Sapphire has named it INCA CS-14 Block-Chain Compute System with a powerful 14 x RX 470 GPUs based on Linux operating system. The system is designed to provide a hash power rate of 410 MH/s and consumes 1950 watts in doing so. It is fully optimized for high-efficiency Ethereum blockchain application.
