30 Years of Beyond Better: A Trip Down Memory Lane of BIOSTAR’s Classic DIY Products

More Than Just a Brand

Our Commitment as a Corporation

A mere mention of BIOSTAR will definitely bring to mind our brand to many DIY enthusiasts. A board loaded with excellent workmanship and the usage of advanced technology, it is of little wonder that BIOSTAR’s boards have repeatedly broken world records, especially in overclocking. Even after 30 years, BIOSTAR continues to place heavy emphasis on our product design and development, as well as our unwavering pursuit to innovate and develop to remain the preferred choice of our customers. Today, our customer loyalty is a testament to our commitment.

 

These 30 Years

BIOSTAR MICROTECH INT’L CORPORATION was first founded in Taiwan back in 1986. Over the years, we have continued to focus on our board development and product applications in order to meet our customers’ needs for more comprehensive and integrated solutions to meet the evolving demands of the market. As we celebrate our 30th Anniversary this year, we’d like to express our heartfelt gratitude to those who has been a part of our journey thus far. These past 30 years was certainly not easy, facing countless hardships, stress and competition. However, amidst those trials and hardship over these past 30 years, BIOSTAR has emerged stronger and better with much to be thankful for: success – we were successful in changing according to the market’s needs, and has a large customer base who trust in our unwavering commitment to always provide the best.

 

A Trip Down Memory Lane

Now, let us a take a trip down memory lane to review BIOSTAR’s classic products over the past 30 years:

The Overclocking Era

BIOSTAR TForce 6100 Motherboard- Speaking of overclocking, we mustn’t forget about our classic BIOSTAR motherboard model which is the TForce 6100 motherboard. As the very first batch of C51 motherboard in the market, the TForce 6100 has garnered much media praises with its unique design, superb workmanship and superior overclocking performance, and left a profound impression on the capabilities of BIOSTAR’s T-Series Motherboard on our users. What’s even more noteworthy of our TForce 6100 motherboard is its ability to perform FSB overclocking using a Sempron 2500+ and maintain very high stability to 417MHz, definitely one of our greatest boards with its reputation that precedes itself!

1.jpg

“I’ve never thought that I could break this record, definitely did not expect to actually have a chance to realise my hopes to attain 425MHz overclocking success on the BIOSTAR TForce 6100 Motherboard. I previously didn’t know about the overclocking prowess of the BIOSTAR TForce 6100 Motherboard… BIOSTAR, we’re looking forward to even greater board that are yet to come and I believe that the next goal will be another one filled with miracles. We look forward to what BIOSTAR will continue to bring us in the future.” – Quoted (and translated) from an overclocking expert with regards to the BIOSTAR TForce 6100 Motherboard.

BIOSTAR TA690G AM2 Motherboard — The BIOSTAR TForce 6100 Motherboard experienced the transition era from the 754,939 to the AM2 interface, becoming the motherboard that spans over the longest period with regards to time and socket changes for the T Series Motherboards. The subsequent TA690G AM2 Motherboard also followed the footsteps of its predecessor to clinch a record number of CPU overclocking on the AM2 CPU platform, resulting in the rise of the chipset after AMD acquired ATI. It is of little wonder to say that the BIOSTAR TA690G AM2 Motherboard reigned as the king of the BIOSTAR T Series Motherboards, as well as to incite the rise of AMD chips!

i-Cafe Focused Motherboards

BIOSTAR’s i-Cafe No. 1 Motherboard definitely deserves its promising title of “Air Force One”, and it definitely has an excellent track record to back it up. With our 4 important characteristics of our “Air Force One”: stable, durable, safe and energy-saving, it definitely is the perfect board for all i-Cafes. Coupled with our upgraded and more sophisticated BIOS  and advanced cooling techniques, this board is the embodiment of the efforts ad thought put in by our engineers at BIOSTAR to bring all i-Cafe owners and players nothing but the very best.

Awards: BIOSTAR won multiple awards thanks to our “Air Force One” such as the “2009 China Internet Industry Service Satisfaction Brand” and the “2009 China i-Cafe Best-selling Product”, in which both awards were issued by the Chinese Ministry of Culture. Our “Air Force One” was amongst the most highly recognised in the industry at that time, and BIOSTAR was able to amass significant market shares in the i-Cafe industry!

BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Series Motherboards

Users are usually not too concerned about computer audio and are willing to accept any motherboard that has mediocre sound quality. Even for those who want a better sound quality, most are only willing to purchase an additional speaker or headset to improve the situation. At BIOSTAR, we understand that the struggle is real. In 2012, BIOSTAR started to insert the sound module directly onto the motherboard that has an independent decoding and amplifying circuit and boldly pushed out our Hi-Fi Series Motherboards. Our Hi-Fi Series Motherboard not only provides our users with a much better audio experience, but also from the hardware perspective, a substantially better than many motherboards in the market. One notable motherboard from the series includes our BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X Motherboard.

In addition to supporting the THX theatre sound effect, the BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X Motherboard has a specially cut out independent analog HD sound area on the motherboard which isolates the audio from the high-frequency signal noise from the board. By using professional audio research and development concepts, ideas and materials, BIOSTAR has included an integrated independent audio power supply on the motherboard and a built-in audio amplifier chip to significantly reduce the current noise, allowing users to enjoy a better PCHIFI audio experience.

Awards: The BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X motherboard was awarded the “2012-2013 Annual Billboard Chinese IT Brands Best Technical Design” award. Also, this board sets the tone of a new trend with BIOSTAR’s Hi-Fi technology in the development of motherboard technology.

 

GAMING Series Motherboards

2015 was the year that saw the rise of eSports in the Chinese markets, and was arguably the year with the most rapid development in the gaming field. In 2015, BIOSTAR saw the release of our GAMING Series Motherboards: the GAMING Z97X and the GAMING Z97W Motherboards. Additionally, BIOSTAR also announced its entrance into the gaming circle and released a series of Gaming cross legion designed peripherals to formally enter the DIY gaming market. Although BIOSTAR’s earlier boards has many features suitable for gaming, it was nonetheless focused on overclocking. This time to cater to our gaming users needs, BIOSTAR has specially designed the GAMING Series motherboards and peripherals to specially cater towards our gamers.

RACING Series Motherboards

Following the footsteps of our successful GAMING Series motherboards, BIOSTAR is keeping its momentum and rolled out its new RACING Series motherboards, of which the most notable being the RACING Z170GT7 Motherboard. The RACING Z170GT7 Motherboard boasts several unique features such as the silkscreen printed checkered flag design on the PCB, our superior Hi-Fi for high quality audio, Intel game card and BIOSTAR’s GT Touch touch panel. Also, this board has BIOSTAR’s Dual BIOS for Dual Protection as well as full-colour LED lights that can be controlled using our easy to use VIVID LED DJ to control the LED lights on the board.
