What Features Can Users Expect from the Biostar RACING X470GT8?
Like all Biostar Racing boards, the X470GT8 has the VIVID LED armor and 5050 LED fun zone. This adds on-board RGB LED on some areas as well as dual 5050 LED headers for additional strips. These RGB LED options offer a wide selection of customization and personalization options under the VIVID LED DJ utility.
In terms of functionality, the RACING X470GT8 uses a Realtek ALC1220 HD audio codec on an isolated Hi-Fi ground design. Plus, Biostar uses Hi-Fi caps and 15000V ESD proof circuitry for clear audio output. Gigabit Ethernet comes from an Intel i211AT. The VRM uses a 12-phase digital power design and has 100% solid capacitors (with the exception of the audio capacitors) on-board.
As for storage, the X470GT8 has two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (one Type-A and one Type-C) in the rear IO. Additionally, there are four USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, and display outputs for Raven Ridge APUs. This includes a DVI-D port, an HDMI 1.4 port and a DisplayPort connector. Like every X470 motherboard, it also has dual M.2 slots, one of which has a heatsink built-in for thermal management.
