Biostar Debuts New AM4 Motherboards for Ryzen

Posted by at 9:32 am on February 20, 2017

Biostar has announced five new AM4 motherboards for the upcoming Ryzen CPUs.

Biostar’s AM4 flagship is the Biostar Racing X370GT7, which is designed to be the best board for overclocking in Biostar’s AM4 product lineup. The board comes equipped with two large heatsinks that are connected by a liquid-filled heatpipe that’s over the VRMs. It also supports two BIOS chips to guard against mistakes while overclocking that would otherwise leave the system inoperable.

The Biostar Racing X370GT7 also features superior audio compared to the other boards announced today. Although all of these new boards feature EMI shielding and use quality audio capacitors, only the X370GT7 features a relatively high-end Realtek ALC1220 audio codec.

Biostar equipped all the new AM4 motherboards with two 5050 LED headers. All of these boards are also compatible with the company’s Vivid LED DJ technology, which allows you to alter the color and lighting effects of LEDs integrated on the motherboard and attached to the aforementioned headers.

Biostar also implemented USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports and M.2 Key M slots across the entire new product lineup. The company also used Realtek’s RTL8118AS on all of these boards, along with Realtek’s Dragon LAN software. This software functions similarly to Killer’s software suite and optimizes network traffic to give your games as much bandwidth as possible.

When the Biostar Racing X370GT7 is released, it will be bundled with a Biostar M200 M.2 240GB SSD that will come pre-installed on the board. This bundle will also include a free copy of World of Tanks.

Pricing  or release for any of these motherboards is unknown at this time.
