Biostar Introduces Two Affordable AM4 B350 Micro-ATX Motherboards

Biostar is introducing two new AMD Ryzen AM4 B350 chipset motherboards to the market in the form of the Racing B350GT3 and Racing B350T2. Both utilize a micro-ATX form factor for a compact build while having the convenient and aesthetic features of the Biostar Racing line. Both AM4 B350 micro-ATX motherboards have the Biostar Vivid LED DJ feature and 5050 LED Fun zone for users and modders who want to customize their build with RGB LED lighting. Vivid LED DJ allows users to select from multiple presets and customize color schemes and effects so the build can be shown off in style.

The Biostar Racing B350GT3 is the higher end of the two micro-ATX motherboards having dual-BIOS capability for redundant safety. Should the first BIOS get corrupted, the secondary chip can be manually selected so the corrupted can be reflashed as well. The Racing B350ET3 also has the USB music power feature to ensure the best audio quality when USB audio devices are plugged in through delivering stable and precise power through an independent +5V power. The AM4 B350 Racing B350GT3 also gets Fly.net bandwidth management which automatically optimizes network performance.

Both motherboard come bundled with a World of Tanks Premium gift exclusive for Asian servers. The Racing B350GT3 however, gets a Biostar VIVID LED fan as a bonus. The Racing B350GT3 has an MSRP of $109 and the B350ET2 has an MSRP of $79.
