Computex 2018 - SAPPHIRE moved into the crypto mining space in a big way this year, unveiling their new INCA CS-14 Mining Solution that uses something you can't buy in Radeon form: dual-GPUs based on the RX 470.

The system itself runs an AMD Embedded G-series FP4 SoC, 8GB of DDR4, 128GB M.2 SSD, runs Ubuntu, and then rocks the huge 7 x dual-RX 470s with 8GB for a total of 14 graphics cards.

In order to power the system SAPPHIRE has used two 1600W PSUs, but I asked what power consumption the system will typically use and they said just over 2000W or so. Not bad at all, considering that it pumps away at over 400MH/s.
