Conclusion: One of the big pluses with the AMD platform is the ACC or Advanced Clock Calibration. BIOSTAR motherboards have the ability to use ACC to turn “On” the locked cores on an X3 or an X6 CPU with the push of a button. This value added feature is excellent, allowing a 960T CPU to be unlocked to 6 cores from 4 cores. BIOSTAR’s TA890GXB HD motherboard will be available for around $89 making it an excellent choice for the person that wants to build an inexpensive 6 core system.
Conclusion: Biostar is a name that has been around in the motherboard industry for a very long time. Some of the first motherboards I ever came in contact with were manufactured by Biostar. They have a lot of experience in the industry and have had a lot of time to iron out any wrinkles in their production. With the TA890GXB-HD, Biostar offers a solid entry into the world of the 890GX chipset.
