Kolink PCIe x1 to Quad x16 - Quad-Mining / Rendering Upgrade Adapter

Kolink PCIe x1 to Quad x16 - Quad-Mining / Rendering Upgrade Adapter The Kolink PCI-E x1 to Quad x16 - Quad-Mining Rendering Upgrade Adapteris the ideal accessory to build or extend a mining rig with up to four graphics cards and considering the available bandwidth can be used with separately available riser cards for other systems and applications such as Altcoin Ethereum or Ether or Zcash as well as for Distributed Computing Rendering and Boinc Bitcoin is a virtual payment method launched in 2009 that is created and managed by all participating clients of the decentralized Bitcoin network Like many other proof-of-work cryptocurrencies bitcoins are generated by computer-solving cryptographic computational tasks that consume a lot of energy called "mining"Meanwhile GPU-based mining for bitcoins is no longer worthwhile due to the immensely increased demands As a result new cryptocurrencies so-called Altcoins such as Ethereum are constantly being launched which continue to be profitably mined with GPUs In principle normal computer processors (CPUs) are capable of scrapping new Altcoins but they can only calculate a few (kilo) hashes per second and are therefore not suitable for mining in relation to the time and energy used for this purpose In terms of efficiency they are significantly beaten by graphics processors (GPUs) especially graphics chips of the Radeon series from AMD have proven to be particularly powerful As so-called mining rigs PC systems are referred to from commercially available hardware components whose sole task isCalculate crypto currencies using multiple graphics cards In order to counteract the resulting high heat generation and to operate as many graphics cards as possible in parallel these GPU-Miner systems usually use very open housings (comparable to benchtables) or partly adventurous self-built housing creations As with AMD CrossFire or NVIDIA SLI gaming PCs the system boards do not usually use all PCI Express slots as powerful graphics cards usually have wide dual fan or even triple fan coolers and so the space required for other GPUs is missing or in the case of many mining PCs all PCIe slots must be routed based on the respective graphics card constellation This is where the handy quad-mining adapter comes in and allows four graphics cards to be connected to a PCIe slot on the motherboard when combined with separately available riser-card (or "to-rise") adapters The quad adapter has four USB 30 ports and can be connected to as many riser cards The USB 30 standard ensures sufficient bandwidth for the PCIe x1 output slot to which the quad adapter is connected to the motherboard Since only calculations are performed by the GPU during mining and unlike video games no textures or shader data have to be transported to the graphics memory the bandwidth available here is completely sufficient for this application Technical detailsConnectorsPlug PCIe with 1 lanejacks 4x USB 30
