AMD A520 chipset
AMD A520 chipset provides a simple, stable platform and more than enough connectivity and bandwidth options to satisfy both demanding home users and
Provides high quality sound with minimal loss of audio fidelity.
BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Ground ( Golden Line ) is noise-blocking multi-layer PCB design to isolates analog audio signals from digital sources. Unique PCB layout is ideal
for exceptional clarity and high fidelity sound.
The new 4K2K resolution enables high-definition image display with four times the resolution of full HD, 4K2K display is faithfully express bright, highly
detailed content that fills the entire screen with lifelike images. Connectivity with PCs via a single HDMI cable for displaying 4K2K data.
DirectX 12 introduces the next version of Direct3D, the graphics API at the heart of DirectX. Direct3D is one of the most critical pieces of a game or game
engine, and we've redesigned it to be faster and more efficient than ever before. Direct3D 12 enables richer scenes, more objects, and full utilization of
modern GPU hardware.
Integrated HDMI with HDCP
Onboard HDMI connector allows full video & audio support. It has industry leading high definition video quality.
PCIe M.2 32Gb/s is the latest storage interface, it delivers the highest bandwidth and lower latency. It's 3 times faster compared with PCIe M.2
PCIe Gen 3.0
PCIe 3.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. At 8GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance
bandwidth is doubled over PCIe 2.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.
SATAIII 6Gbps provides a higher bandwidth to retrieve and transfer HD media.
With this super speed data transfer, SATAIII allows an incredible data boost which is 2x faster than the SATA II.
The primary advantages of DDR4 over DDR3, include higher module density, lower voltage requirements, coupled with higher data transfer rate.
USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
USB 3.2 Gen1 delivers a compelling performance boosts and can be used to connect multiple devices without worrying about compatibility. It is capable of
data transfer speeds up to 5Gbps and backwards compatible with all existing USB products.
Super Durable Ferrite Choke
Super Durable Ferrite Choke brings the benefits of higher current capacity, lower energy loss and better power stability.
Super Durable Solid Caps
The best quality solid state capacitors with ultra low ESR design, the Super Durable Solid Caps doubles the lifespan.
Moistureproof of PCB
The popularity of PC usage and working environment is getting deteriorating and moist (rural, coastal, etc.). The PCB will be oxidizing easily by damp or
absorbed moisture, and ionic migration or CAF (Conductive Anodic Filament) will be generated. Moisture-proof PCB meets high density and high reliability
requirements for moisture proof.
Super LAN Surge Protection
Super LAN Surge Protection, providing LAN port with more advanced antistatic protection capabilities by adding an integrated chip to strengthen electrical
stability and prevent damage from lightning strikes and electrical surges. SLSP (Super LAN Surge Protection) series motherboard upgrades the existing
system protection standards with maximum 4X protection comparing to other board makers.
OC / OV / OH Protection
OC / OV / OH Protection design detects overvoltage conditions and prevents voltage surges from spreading in real time. It also actively cuts off the
overvoltage supply to protect your system.
