Biostar Reveals Lineup of Socket AM1 Motherboards
Biostar has announced three socket AM1 motherboards.
Biostar has announced a triplet of socket AM1 motherboards, which are also the first AM1 motherboards the company has built. The three motherboards are largely identical to each other, with a couple of subtle differences.
They'll be known as the AM1MHP, AM1MH and AM1ML. All three motherboards come in the Micro-ATX form factor, though lack one or two expansion slots from the reference format. They all use a 2+1 phase VRM circuit to power the CPU, feature two DDR3 DIMM slots, feature a single PCIe 2.0 x16 slot, a single PCIe 1x slot, and feature two SATA3 ports.
The AM1MHP features an additional PCI slot, which the AM1MH and the AM1ML lack. The AM1MHP and the AM1MH feature VGA and HDMI ports as display outputs, while the AM1ML lacks the HDMI port.
There was no official word on pricing for these motherboards, though we expect them to be very affordable given the objectives AMD has with the AM1 platform.
