Computer hardware giant Asus has debuted a new product aimed specifically at cryptocurrency miners.

The H370 Mining Master represents a follow up to last year's B250 Mining Expert, with Asus saying that it "redefined the formula for a second generation" of crypto-related products. The Mining Master notably boasts the ability to support a total of 20 graphics cards (GPUs).

As of press time, it's not clear how much the company will charge for the motherboard or when exactly it will be released. That said, Asus indicated that the hardware will be available sometime in the third quarter of this year. Asus is planning to showcase its self-proclaimed "blockchain behemoth" during the Computex 2018 event in Taiwan next week.

Other elements of the Mining Expert include a built-in monitoring system that allows users to keep track of the status of the 20 graphics cards plugged into it.

"Less time maintaining your machine means more time mining with it, which is why the H370 Mining Master includes a suite of diagnostic features designed to make your platform easier to manage," Asus wrote in an announcement post published Wednesday.

Asus is one of a growing number of hardware companies looking to capture some of the interest coming from the market for power-hungry crypto miners. As previously reported, ASRock – another maker of motherboards – is moving similar products to market, and GPU makers AMD and Nvidia have both seen their bottom lines boosted thanks to demand from miners for graphics cards (albeit to the chagrin of gamers).
