Before you go crossing over Intel's Ivy Bridge, which the Santa Clara chip maker is ever-so-close to laying down, you have to make sure you have all your ducks in a row. It starts with the proper foundation, and if you're still shopping a compatible motherboard, Biostar hopes you'll give its brand-spanking-new TZ75B motherboard more than just a passing glance. The TZ75B is a socket LGA 1155 motherboard built on top of Intel's Z75 chipset. That means it's ready to rock and roll with upcoming 22nm Ivy Bridge processors. It also means native SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support, as opposed to previous chipsets,... Read more...
Biostar this week rolled out its new TPOWER X79 motherboard, which is apparently "the most powerful motherboard on the planet" (Biostar's words, not ours). Part of the reason Biostar is marketing its motherboard as such is due to its "extreme overclocking" capabilities, a notion that might have seemed silly coming from Biostar a few short years ago when the focus was primarily on budget boards, but not so much after the company racked up several overclocking records. Getting down to the nitty-gritty, the new TPOWER X79 boasts a 9-phase power design, 100 percent solid capacitors, a 2-ounce copper... Read more...
Though AMD's AM2 socket might be new technology, getting a motherboard that supports AM2 isn't as expensive as you might think. Biostar has released a very capable motherboard that's based on Nvidia's nForce 550 chipset, the Biostar TForce 5500. Though it might be light on features, you can't argue against a stable and well performing $80 motherboard. "At stock settings the Biostar TForce 550 proved to be an excellent motherboard that delivered great benefits at a small price. If you are looking for a value motherboard that... Read more...
For the last few years, there has been an undeniable trend towards packing all the functionality and performance of a full-fledged desktop system into a smaller form factor. As one of the chief pioneers of this new form factor, Shuttle enjoyed having dominant market share as they were one of the only true contenders in the SFF category. Fortunately for consumers, several new vendors have begun to show interest in SFF systems and are now offering some very viable solutions of their own. Biostar is one such company and they are attacking the SFF segment with a vengeance. Today, we'll be looking at... Read more...
Velocity Micro Gamer's Edge 1500 Evaluation @ HardOCP: "We chose the Gamer's Edge 1500 because yours truly is addicted to Battlefield 2 and can barely stand having only 1GB of memory (and 512MB is unthinkable). Therefore, we ordered the 1500 instead, and we did not change one part. I think that if Velocity Micro is going to put their best foot forward in their initial configuration, and bill it as the best value gaming configuration available for $1500, then we should test it exactly as it is configured."

LG LRY-517 VCR/DVD Recorder Combo Review @ Designtechnica: "The LG LRY517 Super-Multi DVD recorder not only raises the bar for stand-alone DVD recorders, but with the integrated VCR and memory card slots, it runs away with it. Whether you are transferring old family movie tapes to DVDs, copying new digital camcorder recordings to DVD, recording your favorite TV programs, or displaying photos or DviX movies from a memory card or CD, the LRY517 will be the tool of choice. " Biostar's iDEQ 330P small form factor system @ The Tech Report: "Biostar's iDEQ 330P is the latest small form... Read more...
The AOpen EZ65 & Biostar iDEQ 200T Shuttle Isn't the Only OEM Making SFF Systems... By, Marco Chiappetta December 16, 2003        With all of the buzz surrounding Shuttle's popular XPC line of small form factor systems, you'd think they were the only company producing these diminutive machines, which obviously is not the case.  Over the past year or so, virtually every major player in PC hardware has brought their version of the mini-PC to the market.  Some of them have been viable alternatives to the XPC product line-up, while others simply can't hold a candle...
