BIOSTAR Unveils a Trio of Socket LGA1150 Motherboards

BIOSTAR unveiled a trio of socket LGA1150 motherboards at CeBIT. Unlike ASRock's creations, its boards appear more complete, with heatsinks and finalized board color scheme. All three feature the company's Puro HiFi technology, a high-quality on-board audio with a focus on physically improving audio quality, rather than artificially. Among the boards are the HiFi-B85S2, the HiFi-Z87X3D, and the HiFi-H87S3+.

Biostar TZ77XE3 Motherboard Pictured

On Feb. 14, Biostar stumped everyone by officially launching the T-Series TZ77XE4 Motherboards. At CeBIT, it unveiled the rest of the Z77 chipset-based lineup, including the T-Series TZ77XE3, TZ77MXE3, and TZ77A. The TZ77XE3 is a notch below the TZ77XE4, which will likely be Biostar's top offering based on the Z77 chipset. The TZ77XE3 does away with swankier VRM heatsinks that are interconnected by a heat-pipe, and quite surprisingly, even angled SATA ports. Its CPU VRM is just as strong as the one on the TZ77XE4, the expansion slot layout even adds on an extra PCI-Express 2.0 x1. All six SATA ports from the PCH are wired as internal ports. There are no eSATA ports. The display output loadout lacks DisplayPort. The audio uses a more cost-effective CODEC. Everything else remains the same.
