ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI join the party
As expected, since AMD has now officially lifted the NDA (non disclosure agreement) from its second generation Ryzen 2000-series Pinnacle Ridge CPUs and the shiny new X470 chipset, most, if not all motherboard makers have announced their own versions, with some launching more than one motherboard to cover a wider market range.
With 12 PCIe slots
With cryptocurrency mining creating havoc on the GPU market, Biostar is looking to cash in on the craze by releasing a motherboard based on Intel's B250 chipset and with no less than 12 PCI-Express slots, the TB250-BTC Pro.
Based on X370 and B350 chipsets
Biostar has unveiled its first two socket AM4 motherboards that are based on 17x17cm mini-ITX form-factor, the Racing B350GTN and the Racing X370GTN.
