Sapphire Launches Specialized 16gb Crypto-Mining Graphics Card

Sapphire Technologies announced on January 22, 2019, that it was launching a new 16gb graphics card that is specially designed to support GRIN coin and other cryptocurrencies.

Cryptocurrency Focus

Sapphire Technologies is one of the leading manufacturers as well as a global supplier of computer components and software management solutions. Earlier this week they announced on its official website the launch of a new graphics card, one specifically designed to support Grin coin and other cryptocurrencies.  The new 16gb Blockchain graphics card is proof that the company has now begun to apply focus on the blockchain/cryptocurrency industry.

SAPPHIRE’s RX 570 16GB HDMI Card is said to be available to order very soon and will give the chance to early grin coin miners to access the highest rewards.

The Global VP of Marketing at SAPPHIRE Technology, Adrian Thompson, stressed:

“The launch of the RX 570 16GB HDMI Card presents an exciting opportunity not just for SAPPHIRE but for early Grin Coin miners and the cryptocurrency market as a whole. Future products will include new 16GB Graphics additions’ to SAPPHIRE’s line of INCA and MGI Series of dedicated blockchain systems. We’re thrilled to be bringing this and future blockchain products to market.”

The blockchain dedicated graphics card is the culmination of 15 years manufacturing professional graphics cards and components for commercial and embedded markets. The new Sapphire graphics card will be available to order on a standalone hardware piece for advanced users and comes with Dual Ball Bearing Fan with SAPPHIRE Quick Connect Fan technology.


GRIN coin is a community-based digital currency that has been around since 2016. GRIN coin is focused on privacy, scalability and fungibility with aims to address many of the flaws other cryptocurrencies tend to have. GRIN coin was designed having decentralized and full democratization in mind. It is an open-source protocol that is being openly developed by developers’ and distributed and supported by a strong community around the world.


Contrary to other graphics cards currently in the market, the SAPPHIRE’s RX 570 16GB HDMI Card is specifically designed for the cryptocurrency industry and can also outperform other products for industrial or professional applications.

Since the new SAPPHIRE’s RX 570 16GB HDMI Blockchain Card will be one of the few solutions that can efficiently mine Cuckatoo 31+, there will be a lot of miners on the network which will eventually lead to higher returns. Moreover, the SAPPHIRE’s RX 570 16GB HDMI Card will also be a gamechanger for early Grin coin miners who move fast and take advantage of the new SAPPHIRE’s hardware.

Two years ago the manufacturer launched its first product specifically designed to the cryptocurrency industry, but the new Sapphire graphics card will be one of a kind; it won’t be comparable to any other nVidia alternative in the market and might mark the beginning of a new arms race on the Graphics card industry.
