Biostar and ASRock tease Ryzen 3000 X570 motherboards for a Computex 2019 launch
We recently saw lists of Gigabyte and Asus X570 motherboards leak, and now Biostar has officially confirmed that the company's 4th generation motherboards will be launching during Computex 2019. Although the company has not explicitly mentioned 'Ryzen 3000' or 'AMD X570' in its press material, it is obvious as to what is being referred to here.
The teaser image shows off a motherboard that is likely to be from the flagship Racing series. From the image, we see that the board features a full black color scheme with silver accents. The VRM heatsinks, the AM4 socket, and the back panel I/O are also clearly visible. There seem to be three M.2 slots covered by heatsinks with one of them being a full-sized slot and the CMOS battery is seen located next to the I/O cover. The image also shows the Biostar Racing sporting three PCIe 4.0 x16 slots along with three PCIe 4.0 x1 slots. An interesting feature of the board is the active cooling of the X570 chipset by a 7-blade fan, which in all likelihood can be controlled via the BIOS or from within Windows.
Not wanting to be left behind, ASRock too teased outlines of what is likely to be the Phantom Gaming boards based on the X570 chipset on its official Facebook page. The image itself does not offer much information but seems to show off cool heatsink designs and an updated Polychrome RGB lighting system.
The exact features of the AMD X570 chipset are still elusive apart from PCI Express 4.0 support. Of course, top of the line overclocking and support for faster RAM along with improvements to XFR2, Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), and StoreMI can be taken for granted considering that this is the flagship chipset.
Computex 2019 is scheduled to take place from May 28 to June 1 in Taipei. AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su will be addressing the first keynote at the pre-show international press conference on May 27 where she is likely to talk about the Ryzen 3000 CPUs and Navi GPUs in more detail.
