Following the announcement from Intel and AMD over at CES 2022, BIOSTAR has released their own share of offerings in the form of new B660 series motherboards for Team Blue and the Radeon RX 6500 XT from Team Red.
Jumping off the list with 3 distinctive models of B660GTA (ATX), B660GTQ (mATX), and B660GTN (Mini-ITX) from left to right, these boards are the signature mid-tier motherboards that are suitable for the use of business, casuals, content creators, and gamers that are able to harness the power of the 12th Gen Intel Core processors. Aside from their form factor, BIOSTAR has fitted all 3 of them with the same components such as 5000MHz DRAM slots (Yes, these are DDR4 boards), PCIe 4.0, and technically 5.0 support to give them some form of futureproofing. The brand’s power management features can also be found within these parts like the Digital PWM powered by durable inductors and 10000 hours solid capacitors with proprietary Dr. MOS for easy and stable overclocking – all without breaking the bank.
On the other side, the Radeon RX 6500 XT is just another simple job for BIOSTAR of slapping their logo on the dual fan and calling it a day. For those who just want a GPU for 1080p gaming without caring about the rest and eyeing one of the most low-priced variants in the market, feel free to pick this. With the 4GB GDDR6 VRAM coupled with AMD Smart Access Memory and FidelityFX Super Resolution, perhaps FHD is just enough for you and you could extract more value out of it if you run a compatible Ryzen CPU too.
As these are new items fresh out from CES 2022, it’ll take some time to reach Malaysia and the rest of the world so no local pricing as of now.
