BIOSTAR Introduces RACING B450 GT3 Micro-ATX Motherboard

The RACING B450GT3 motherboard is built for gamers that require high-performance on a micro-ATX form factor. Fitted with the B450 chipset that supports AMD's Ryzen 3000 Series processors. The RACING B450GT3 motherboard is packed with loads of functions and features that are found in most high-end gaming AM4 motherboards and is designed with BIOSTAR's signature premium black Racing themed PCB style.

The RACING B450GT3 supports 4-DIMM DDR4-1866/2133/2400/2666/2933/3200 (OC) with up to 64G maximum capacity, 1x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port (10 Gb/s), 1x USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A port (10 Gb/s), 1x M.2 (32 Gb/s) and 6x SATA3 connectors. Gamers will also appreciate the Hi-Fi 7.1ch HD Audio for truly immersive sound quality that is enabled with the Realtek ALC1150 7.1-Channel Audio, Dual BIOS for auto-recovery, and Iron Slot Protection for a much more stable and durable port composition.
The RACING B450GT3 motherboard is equipped with the exclusive utility FLY.NET, which combined with Realtek RTL8118AS Dragon gaming LAN has the capability to optimize the internet connectivity for a much faster and safer gaming experience.

The motherboard also comes equipped with a full array of RGB LIGHTING modes that can be fully managed and customized with the VIVID LED DJ and 5050 LED FUN ZONE software providing complete control of user build customization.

Despite everything else being mediocre, this board does have a good sound chip for B450.

Biostar is making a comeback. I like the layout. The lack of heatsinks on the upper VRM's is a bit worrisome though. Likely isn't an issue.

D-sub and DVI, really? Why not a DP port and a couple of extra USB ports instead?
I don't get these "budget" boards that keep these old connectors alive. It's not hard to get a DP or even HDMI to DVI adapter or even D-sub if you got an ancient screen.
I mean, this isn't even that much of a budget board considering some of the inclusions.

Now can one of the other board makers come up with a reasonably high-end mATX board for Ryzen?

Some people actually want them natively supported. Makes for a great board to use with an older screen/HDTV.

Adapter cables can be hit or miss. A board like this takes the guess work out of the equation.

Never had a single problem with adapters, apart from maybe when DFP was a thing. Not even VGA to BNC, as long as you got the right count of BNC connectors on the other end.

I've encountered a few, which is why I said "hit or miss".

So why is this "news"?
The board was introduced way back in 2018 ...
I'd understand, if this was at least a new revision, but it's the exact same model.

Actually, a few of the problem cables have been the "Amazon Basics" brand.

I just looked on the Biostar website. No it isn't.

I also went and looked at their site, and there is no other B450GT3 listed.
Even under "support" they only have this one model... B450GT3 ver. 6.x.

Which IS the same model you could buy since 2018.
You can go ahead and check since when it's listed: geizhals.eu/biostar-racing-b450gt3-a1859190.html

You know what, you're right! This is the same one. I didn't look close enough earlier.

Um, don't want to sound rude here, but what's up? This board has been out for a while. It's labeled a "Press Release", but it's a little late to the party eh?
