BIOSTAR B660GTA Gaming Motherboard Review

After the successful launch of Z690 based motherboards last year (Q4 2021), Intel have now released their lower-end 600-series with B660, H610, and H670 chipsets. The B660 chipset is dedicated to gamers who don’t need special controllers or additional PCIe lanes, but still want to enjoy the new platform and its improved features. For most users, the difference between the B660 chipset and the Z690 won’t be significant, while for sure B660 motherboards will be much cheaper.

Biostar has already released three motherboards from the Racing series, and this review will focus on one of them – B660GTA Gaming. The tested motherboard is in ATX format and is designed for gamers, so it is full of gaming features and has a unique design.

As usual, we will start with a long list of specifications and features.

I would like to thank Biostar for providing the review sample. This is a snippet from what Biostar has to say about themselves on their website:

 

 

BIOSTAR has enriched its competence in the design and manufacture of products such as add-on cards, multi-media and system products to develop the market and meet the demands of customers for more integrated solutions. In order to expand its capacity to meet customer demand globally, BIOSTAR was the first to establish a manufacturing facility in China in 1990. In 1998, its sales revenues exceeded US$130 million and it ranked 227th among the top 1000 enterprises in Taiwan. Furthermore,BIOSTAR obtained an ISO 9001 certification in 1999 and became a publicly listed company in the same year. BIOSTAR’s future has limitless possibilities.
