Biostar Racing Z590GTA

The last of the trio of motherboards from Biostar is the Racing Z590GTA. Based on its competitive racing themed series, Biostar has opted for a premium controller set on the ATX Z590GTA, with features including support for DDR4-5000 memory, a Realtek 2.5 GbE controller, and three PCIe M.2 slots.

Adopting a modern and interesting aesthetic, the Biostar Racing Z590GTA has diagonally imprinted blue and gray accents across the rear panel cover and M.2 heatsinks. The rear panel and chipset heatsink looks like it includes integrated RGB LEDs. For storage, the Biostar Racing Z590GTA uses a trio of M.2 slots, including one PCIe 4.0 x4 and two PCIe 3.0 x4/SATA slots. When using SATA drives in the supported M.2 slots, these will share bandwidth with the SATA ports, with six in total that can accommodate RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 arrays.

Providing power to the CPU is an 8-pin and 4-pin 12 V ATX CPU power input pairing, with a 24-pin 12 V ATX motherboard power input on the right-hand side. Above this is four memory slots capable of DDR4-5000 memory, with a maximum supported capacity of up to 128 GB. Towards the board's center is a full-length PCIe 4.0 x16 slot, with a second full-length PCIe 3.0 x4 slot and two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots. 

The rear panel includes one USB 3.2 G2x2 Type-C, two USB 3.2 G2 Type-A, two USB 3.2 G1 Type-A, and two USB 2.0 ports. There is a trifecta of video outputs consisting of a DVI-D, HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort, with three 3.5 mm audio jacks powered by a Realtek ALC1220 HD audio codec. Biostar uses a Realtek RTL8125B 2.5 GbE controller, with two antenna ports for an unknown wireless CNVi, while a PS/2 combo port and pre-attached rear I/O shield finish off the rear panel.

Biostar hasn't shared any information on pricing at the time of writing.

    I'm a bit surprised they went to an x8 3.0 link on the chipset instead of an x4 4.0 one, even if everything coming off of the chipset is still limited to 3.0 speed. Reply

    Might be because it makes routing the traces easier, they don't have to adhere to the PCIe 4.0 signal requirements. Downside would be that more pins are required. Reply

    Other being quite boring platform , there is noticeable lack of M-ATX offerings. Reply

    Also it seems like even with properly finned heatsinks Gigabyte Aorus master requires a fan to cool VRMs which is not a good sign. Reply
