Models based on high-end integrated chipsets also deserve attention, because they are becoming more appealing as a basis for the average household PCs. Spring is a time for the biggest clean-up in the garden. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. The products of the latter companies are hard to find to be sure, they have to be ordered in advance. In addition, besides testing Biostar’s board using Catalyst 7.

Biostar TAG AM2 – a Motherboard Based on AMD G (Socket AM2) Chipset

This article specifically concerns such a model. Frequency response 40 Hz to 15 KHzdB: Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Fa690g.

The remaining four are not uniform either. After the board is installed into the chassis all sockets and jumpers are still easily accessible.

They are described as corresponding to “Extra, Extreme and Extraordinary” degrees of overclocking.

All that makes the overall positive impression complete. Overclocking capabilities offered by the board are simply unheard of for models with integrated chipsets.

In case of our processor the bioztar clock rates were 2. The set of brand utilities includes T-Utility suite, which can be installed in parts: BioShock Infinite and Metro: High-quality components are used in power supply circuits. The same is true for Jetway, which is oriented towards low-end products.

The motherboard was provided for tests by the manufacturer Dmitriy Laptev lpt ixbt. The practical goal of our test is to find out if the CPU’s high overclocking potential is hindered by the board and to evaluate the board’s behavior in non-standard BIOS modes. The height of the northbridge heatsink for the new version has been reduced so that there is no tx690g it can conflict with any processor cooler whatsoever.


BIOSTAR TAG AM2 PCSTATS Review – Overclocking the AMD G and Athlon64 +

We could complain about the narrow dynamic range, however, it is not as critical to audio perception as distortions which have la taken care of in this case. Perhaps, a few years ago hardly anyone could have predicted that the list of companies producing full-size PC motherboards would be limited to these. This characteristic also provides sufficient reliability margin in case you decide to increase memory supply voltage to the maximum value allowed by the lxn BIOS. The CPU voltage can be increased 0.

Privacy policy and Terms of Use. It is important, because the probability of a user relying on integrated audio controller for a model with integrated graphics is much higher than in case of a board based on discrete chipset.

This is more likely due to the processor reaching its maximum speed than the motherboard maxing out however. Only the northbridge heatsink, which resides near the processor socket, may in theory obstruct the installation of a non-standard CPU cooler.

Biostar TA690G AM2 – T-series – motherboard – micro ATX – Socket AM2 – AMD 690G

Applying this test procedure, we are able to effectively use all of the test board’s supported abilities, including increasing processor core voltage, and if necessary, correcting multipliers and adjusting system and tz690g bus frequencies.


Spring is a time for the biggest clean-up in the garden.

While this review was still being prepared Biostar has released an updated 5. This is not a record-breaking but a decent result, nonetheless. About Us Employment Privacy Policy. On the other hand, Biostar is not about to give up its ground as a global supplier of motherboards.

For this reason, it is impossible lsn us, and any other review, to determine the overclocking potential of any board with megahertz precision.

AMD G chipset ta690gg we have already mentioned is one of the most efficient of the modern models with integrated graphics. The standard algorithm can be modified for the CPU fan in order to set the 4 temperature thresholds: The details of how the Biostar TAG AM2 motherboard test system was configured for benchmarking; the specific hardware, software drivers, operating system and benchmark versions is indicated below. It seems so, except for a couple of companies, more specifically:
