British webshop Overclockers UK is now listing a bunch of Radeon RX Mining Edition cards from Sapphire. I posted about the NVIDIA GeForce mining cards earlier this month and now we have firm information about the cryptocurrency mining cards from AMD. These can be used to mine Ethereum or other cryptocurrencies that can still be mined economically using GPUs.
The pre-order lineup shown by OCUK includes one Radeon RX 560 model as well as four RX 470 cards. The latter lack display outputs while the RX 560 variant retains one DVI port.
Sapphire's Radeon RX 560 Pulse MINING Edition 4GB promises hashing power of 12-15MH/s and a power consumption of 60W. Next there are two Radeon RX 470 Mining Edition 4GB cards, these consume 122W and have hashing power of 23-26MH/s and 24-27MH/s (Samsung memory), respectively. The 8GB variants of the RX 470 Mining Edition have a 128W power consumption and promise 24-27MH/s and 25-28MH/s (Samsung memory) hashing power, respectively.
Pricing of the RX 560 Pulse Mining Edition is £169.99 while the 4GB and 8GB RX 470 Mining Editions cost £248.99 and £289.99, respectively. The RX 470 models with the Samsung memory chips cost an extra £10. FWIW, one year ago the UK launch price of the RX 470 was £164.99.
Also worth noting is that these cards have a warranty of just one year, whereas the regular Radeon RX gaming video cards from Sapphire come with a three year warranty.
