Long Lifespan and Stable Operating for M.2 Storage
M.2 heatsink features ultra-high cooling efficiency to protect the M.2 connector area and the chipset area from thermal problems and extend the M.2 lifespan for long-term and stable operation.
The 1st Intel Z270 Platform with Intel 10GbE LAN
The Intel X550 chipset supports 10GbE LAN, delivering 10 times faster than a traditional LAN, bringing lower power consumption and compatible with existing GbE devices. It can allow heavy load applications, such as cloud drive, high-definition video, or network-attached storage (NAS), to operate without any latency.
Stable Power and 100% Fixed Voltage for Overclocking
Digital Power+ uses IR's digital PWM controller and PowIRstage™ IC, offering the excellent precision in delivering stable power and 100% fixed voltage to critical components of the motherboard with the maximum performance and reliability. The PWM controller allows the CPU VRM to adjust power delivery speed much more quickly and the PWM spectrum supports power delivery rated up to 60A for each phase, providing enthusiasts with exceptional control over the maximum overclocking potential of the CPU.
IR's IR3555 PowIRstage® are more power efficient and operate cooler than competing MOSFETs, resulting in longer component lifespan and more head room for greater overclocking performance.
The 1st with QC and Faster Charging Time for Mobile Devices
BIOSTAR new H/W design Lightning Charger supports the functions of USB port and quick charge with the amazingly fast charging time to help your mobile devices achieve up to a 75% charge in just 30 minutes; meanwhile, it supports QC2.0 (up to 12V/1.5A output), APPLE mode (5V/2.4A), and BC1.2.
Lightning Charger Utility
* Users can switch from quick charge mode to data transfer mode via Lightning Charger Utility.
