AMD launched their second generation Ryzen processor back in April and with that we got the new X470 chipset, which for one supports the new Ryzen processors right out of the gate and offers some new features like Extended Frequency Range 2 and Precision Boost 2.

Biostar B360GT3S Motherboard Review

When Intel released their 8th generation "Coffee Lake" processors back in October 2017 they were released alongside the enthusiast-class Z370 chipset. That was the only chipset you could use with these new processors at the time. Now you have the option of H370, B360, and H310. The B360 chipset differs from H370 in a few different ways, first you only have support for a single x16 PCI-E slot, only 12 PCI-E lanes (compared to 24), fewer USB ports, and there is no CPU or memory overclocking. Today we will be checking out a B360 board from Biostar. This is actually our first look at a B360 board, but also our first look at a board from Biostar. The Biostar B360GT3S motherboard is part of Biostar's Racing line, which is a gaming line within their product stack. Let's take a look and see if there is a lower-cost alternative to getting a Z370 motherboard.
