Biostar iMiner rigs aim specifically at millennials

Biostar launched a new series of iMiner systems for the cryptocurrency mining crowd. These systems feature AMD Radeon RX 500 series video cards in black server-like cases. They're fully equipped and ready to mine, the A564X12 features twelve Radeon RX 560 cards, the A578X6 has six Radeon RX 570 cards, and the A578XD flagship has eight Radeon RX 570 cards. The former two feature Biostar's TB250-BTC Pro motherboard, while the latter uses the TB250-BTC D+.

Each rig has the Intel Celeron G3930 dual-core processor and 4GB DDR4-2400. The flagship has a 120GB SSD, 1600W PSU and seven 120mm fans. The other two systems have a 90GB SSD, 1300W PSU, and five 120mm fans. For Ethereum mining, the iMiner rigs promise 148MH/s, 165MH/s, and 220MH/s, respectively.

Probably the funniest thing about this news is the way Biostar is marketing these rigs. AnandTech spotted the ads and notes Biostar is hoping to flog these systems to millenials who want to make an extra buck.
Biostar has this week released new iMiner systems specifically designed for crypto coin mining. The systems are stuffed with AMD RX 500-series video cards in a "space black" server-like chassis. Biostar positions the iMiner Multi-GPU Mining rigs as "fashionable and easy" along with dapper-looking young gentlemen in the promotional materials who look like they cashed in on the bitcoin bubble already.
