Although we are supposed to be waiting on April 2nd for the official introduction of all B360, H370 and H310 motherboards, Biostar has jumped the gun listing these motherboards on its website, although they have seemed to take the pages down. This still is exciting those looking forward to upgrading to Coffee Lake at a lower price than current Z370 motherboards. Lets take a look at what they've shown off.
Biostar Unveils Two Racing Boards And Two Pro Motherboards For Coffee Lake
The Two Biostar Racing Motherboards are the Biostar B360 Racing GTS5S, and the Biostar B360 Racing GTS3S, while both still pack dual M.2 ports the Biostar B360 Racing GTS5S packs three PCIe 3.0 X16 slots, although it still is a bit of a waste on the mainstream platform, along with three PCIe 3.0 X1 slots. The GT3S is Micro ATX and packs two PCIe X16 slots and a single PCIe 3.0 x1 slot. They feature 6 Sata ports as well and 4 RAM slots. I/O Seems to be the same from the pictures and I can't seem to discern any other changes.
The Biostar B360MHD Pro and Biostar H310MHD Pro seem exactly the same with the only change being swapping of two USB 3.0 ports for cheap USB 2.0 ports. Both boards are Micro ATX with 1 PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots and no M.2 support. They feature 3 Sata ports and 2 RAM slots. Absolute pure basics.
The news comes off the heels of our report on MSI motherboards being leaked for their upcoming release. This comes with the Intel Coffee Lake-S and the entireity of their Coffee Lineup being expected to launch on April 2nd, these boards should pair quite well with locked non K processors finally giving users the ability to build budget systems on Coffee Lake without buying $130+ Motherboards, As always expect more information as it follows.
