Biostar today announces the new generation of TA970XE series motherboards for AMD AM3+ CPUs. The TA970XE board sports the ATX form-factor (305 x 225 mm) on the AMD 970 chipset with the SB950 Southbridge. It provides stable and high performance with any Socket AM3+ CPUs of the Phenom II, Athlon II and FX ranges. The TA970XE board features the latest UEFI BIOS which directly supports HDDs over 2 TB. The TA970XE board has four DDR3 DIMMs and supports up to 32 GB dual-channel DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600/1866 MHz and experimental overclocking memory modules clocked up to 2000 MHz. Two PCI-E x16 2.0 slots deliver full-featured support for the most powerful configurations of discrete cards in the ATI CrossFire X mode.
The TA970XE easily supports up to five latest speedy storage devices of the SATA3 6 Gbit/s interface and supports SATA RAID 0,1,5,10 arrays. Besides, the board has one eSATA, two USB 3.0 (ASMedia ASM1042 chip), eight USB 2.0, one FireWire IEEE 1394a (VIA VT6315N chip) ports, a 10/100/1000Mbit/s LAN controller (Realtek RTL8111E chip) and 8-channel HD audio codec (VIA VT1828S chip). Additional peripherals can be connected to two PCI and two PCI-E x1 2.0 slots. The board uses a 5-phase voltage regulation and high-quality solid capacitors.
The board features all Biostar proprietary technologies including the Biostar G.P.U (Green Power Utility) for power optimization at a low load, the exclusive overclocking Rapid Switch utility for quick restart, the Rapid Debug for hardware debugging with a LED light, the BIOS Flasher and the BIOS RELIFE for BIOS update or recovery from a USB drive and the BIO-Remote 2 for remote control of home media system components control from Android or Apple mobile devices. The TA970XE features Clean Tone 2 technology developed by the engineers from Biostar which helps you deliver sound with minimal distortions in the high-frequency range. As there are independent capacitors for each line, the Clean-Tone 2 allows you to achieve a NSR of around 98 dB.
