BIOSTAR Unveils The TB150 PRO Motherboard

BIOSTAR has a rich pedigree in the motherboard sector and released a huge range of products with contrasting colour schemes. During the past year, the company modernised their styling and updated the software package. BIOSTAR’s latest creation entitled the TB150 PRO is designed for cryptocurrency mining and has the appropriate components to maintain reliability 24/7. More specifically, the BIOSTAR PRO Tough Enhanced improves ROI. The BIOSTAR TB150 PRO supports the latest 6th-generation Intel Core processors and employs the B150 chipset. As a result, memory support is limited to a maximum speed of DDR4-2133 and can accommodate capacities up to 32GB.
Also, the BIOSTAR TB150 PRO has 2 PCI-E x16 slots, 3 PCI-E x1 slots, 6 SATA 3 connectors and utilises a Realtek RTL8111H networking controller. The audio segment revolves around the Realtek ALC887 codec and benefits from high-quality Japanese capacitors. In terms of the rear I/O, the motherboard has a PS/2 mouse port, PS/2 keyboard port, 4 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 DVI-D connector, an RJ45 port and 3 audio connectors. If you want to add a high-speed storage device, it’s possible to deploy the motherboard’s M.2 connector which supports type 2242, 2260 and 2280. Overall, it’s a really solid product although I’m not quite sure how many people are still invested in mining. This craze appears to have subsided some time ago as shown by the devaluation of certain AMD cards which initially received price hikes due to their usefulness in mining applications.
