Affordable AMD B450 motherboards from BIOSTAR — priced from just $60!
BIOSTAR has just introduced their latest AMD B450 motherboards, the B450MHC and B450MH. The two MATX motherboards are designed to be as affordable as possible, while not skimping out on too many features that define the AMD Ryzen platform.
The two motherboards feature the enhanced VRM and memory routing specifications introduced with the X470 platform. It supports the latest AMD Ryzen CPUs, as well as RAM up to 3200 MHz. There is also support for the latest PCIe 3.0 x16 graphics cards out there.
For those who want to use this motherboard with the integrated graphics in the Ryzen APUs, there are HDMI and VGA outputs on the back I/O. Aside from the video outputs, you are also getting four USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports.
By now you might be wondering what’s the difference between the two motherboards. Well, the $60 BIOSTAR B450MHC lacks the M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 slot found on the $65 B450MH. The price difference between the two motherboards is just $5, so you would actually be better off with the slightly pricier BIOSTAR B450MH.
