BIOSTAR Reveals VA47D5RV42 Mining Graphics Card with “RX 470D” GPU

BIOSTAR posted technical specs of its first graphics card designed for crypto-currency mining, bearing the model number “VA47D5RV42.” This card, which relies on the design of its RX 470/480 graphics playing cards; is constructed across the Radeon RX 470D chip, and endowed with four GB of GDDR5 reminiscence. The RX 470D is a “lite version” or LE variant of the Polaris 10 silicon, which by no means made it to the DIY channel market, however often reared its head within the pre-built OEM market.

It options fewer stream processors than the RX 470, at 1,792 vs. 2,048. The chip is clocked at 1200 MHz (enhance), with 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) reminiscence. Apparently, in contrast to most “mining” graphics playing cards we have seen thus far, this card seems to characteristic a full complement of show outputs, which incorporates three DisplayPorts and one every of HDMI and DVI. The corporate did not reveal pricing.
