The 34 New AMD Ryzen 7 Motherboards Revealed

The new AMD Ryzen 7 processors will hit the stores on March 2, 2017, with pre-orders open on the Ryzen 7 1800X, the Ryzen 7 1700X and the Ryzen 7 1700 right now. But what about the motherboards? Let’s find out what AMD’s motherboard partners have in store to pair with the AMD Ryzen 7 processors!

 

More Than 82 Motherboard Models

AMD promised that there will be at least 82 different AMD AM4 motherboards for the AMD Ryzen 7 processors by launch day. They listed their five motherboard partners – ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, BIOSTAR and ASRock, but did not mention the actual motherboard models, or their chipsets.

Together with the AMD Ryzen 7 processors, AMD also launched the AMD X370 chipset. This is an enthusiast-class chipset designed for use with the Ryzen 7 processors. However, the Ryzen 7 will work with the AMD B350 and A320 chipsets that were introduced with the earlier AMD 7th Generation APUs (Bristol Ridge) processors. If you have an existing AMD B350 or A320 motherboard, they just require a BIOS update to support the AMD Ryzen 7 processors.

 

The 34 AMD Ryzen 7 Motherboard Models Currently Available

AMD did not reveal the whole slew of 82 AMD Ryzen 7 motherboards, but we have pictures and some details of the 34 motherboards that will support the AMD Ryzen 7 processors on launch day. Check them out :

BIOSTAR TB250-BTC Mining Motherboard Announced

Taipeh, 26 January 2017BIOSTAR proudly announces its latest B250 motherboard to join its product line this generation with the introduction of the BIOSTAR TB250-BTC mining motherboard designed for dense bitcoin mining operations. The new BIOSTAR TB250-BTC motherboard features enhancements provided by the new Intel 200 series as well as improved efficiency by the latest 7th-generation processors.

The BIOSTAR TB250-BTC is designed to be the newest, most stable and durable foundation for bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining. Bitcoin mining and other cryptocurrency have become more widely known these days and the recent resurgence in Bitcoin price has awaken interest in both old and new miners in establishing themselves again in the mining scene.

With new GPUs offering more efficiency than previous generation, more GPUs can now be utilized for faster ROI. This trend in utilizing multiple VGA cards can cause extremely hot operating conditions which may affect system stability which may lead to operation disruption with breakdowns and failures.

That said, the new BIOSTAR TB250-BTC focuses on improving stability and endurance for extreme operating conditions that can cause potential downtime or similar problems stemming from maintenance issues stemming from unstable motherboards due to extended usage.

 

Crypto-currency trends for Bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrency require dedicating a system that can run for long periods of hours under stress which can easily deteriorate motherboard components. With the BIOSTAR TB250-BTC motherboard, this deterioration is reduced and the rate of which is is slowed down providing less maintenance cost which gives you the benefit of improved ROI. BIOSTAR achieves this by using its expertise in developing high-endurance and stable components for this application.

The new BIOSTAR TB250-BTC motherboard will support processors for the LGA1151 socket and will have native support for RAM with up to DDR4-2400 speeds and 32GB in total capacity. The motherboard will feature high-reliability LAN ethernet solution with Gigabit speeds for faster network utilization. Built-in M.2 connector allowshigh-speed storage support allowing you minimal cable use for maximum cabinet utilization for cards.

 

Choosing Your Hardware

There’s a lot to consider before getting started in setting up your bitcoin mining rig. We highly recommend starting with AMD graphics card like the Radeon RX 470. After which, other components are chosen and the necessary parts are ready including PCI-e risers and if you’ll be using around six graphics cards, we highly recommend two separate power supplies. The BIOSTAR TB250-BTC features two dedicated AUX power connector for reinforced power delivery for superior system stability and enhance GPU performance.

BIOSTAR Braswell Refresh Motherboards Announced

May 6th, 2016, TaiwanBIOSTAR proudly announces a new line up of motherboards featuring the new 14nm Intel Braswell Refresh SoC processors that feature many improvements from its older 22nm counterpart Baytrail SoC. The new 14nm processors offer a more efficient yet powerful experience than its predecessor whilst consuming less power and producing less heat. The various improvements also introduce new performance enhancements for both CPU and GPU guaranteeing a more refined visual experience.

 

Braswell Refresh

New Features

With the new processor architecture comes new enhancements over the older-generation of processors. Besides improvements in processing speed, Braswell Refresh boasts a new 14nm fabrication process which gives the SoC a smaller die that needs less power (6w) and produces less heat.

A heavily improved 8th-gen Intel HD Graphics processor with 12 Execution Units (EUs) is baked into the SoC compared to the 4 EUs of the older gen model. Connectivity is also improved with native support for DDR3L-1600 speeds, SATA3 and up to 4 USB3.0 devices.

14nm Processor

Intel’s die-shrink allows the new Braswell Refresh SoC processors to operate with less current while improving performance and allows more clock rate headroom for frequency increases on lower workloads when necessary along with the other technical advantages brought on by the die-size reduction.

Improved HD Graphics

An improved Intel HD Graphics GPU will be baked into the new SoCs which improves performance for multimedia tasks such as watching HD videos and better desktop graphics for productivity allowing for a richer experience with an increase in execution units to handle today’s more demanding visual processing.

More Memory Bandwidth

Native support for DDR3L-1600 allows the new Braswell Refresh SoCs to access memory at a faster rate for improved system responsiveness.

Here’s a quick rundown of the older generation models versus the new Braswell Refresh SoC processors:

This changes results in up to 40% power savings and double graphics performance. There is also 20% more memory bandwidth in the new DDR3L-1600 versus the old DDR3L-1333, plus twice the speed for storage against the older SoCs.
