The 2nd-gen BIOSTAR PRO Series boards featured an enhanced power design that ensures stability and durability for secure, long-term usage. Backed with a metal retention backplate, this improves board integrity and makes it free from deformation made from large coolers. Nichicon high-end audio capacitors also make the 2nd-gen BIOSTAR PRO series boards a great choice for entertainment offering improved audio over competing models by offering superb sound quality for a great listening experience. 

BIOSTAR PRO Series Features

 

 

Nano Carbon Coating Heatsink – 2nd-gen PRO Series exclusive feature that improves overall cooling effect compared to traditional aluminum-extruded heatsink. Mesoporous carbon material expands the  heat dissipation area and increases heat conductivity efficiently better than traditional heatsinks.

 

Audio Art Capacitors – high-end Japanese Nichicon audio capacitors bring audio to life to offer a whole new artistic dimension and clarity to your listening experience.

 

 

Tough Power Enhanced – high-endurance power design allows the BIOSTAR PRO series motherboards to endure high-current with consistent full energy output without additional energy loss.

 

Iron Heart Protection – a reinforced CPU backplate protects PRO series motherboards from bending and stress caused by heavy CPU coolers. This protects the motherboard from potential circuit damage and serves to conduct some heat away from the CPU and VRM area as well.

 

The BIOSTAR A320MH PRO features HDMI connection for modern devices that support the interface and support resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 @24Hz or 3840 x 2160 @30Hz.

The BIOSTAR A320MD PRO has a built-in DVI-D connector supporting resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 @60Hz.
