Conclusion: Motherboards can relatively straightforward and a joy to work with, or the biggest level of frustration and anguish a system builder or tester can experience. The Biostar TZ77XE4 invokes quantum mechanics in its actions - being either a delight or a terror depending on what you want to do with it.
Excerpt: Biostar has recently been pushing its way into the enthusiasts offerings, and with the new TPower TZ77XE4, they have introduced a board designed for overclocking. Knowing the TPower line’s capabilities and excellent value we should be in for one hell of a show.
Pros: Low price, SLI/CF Capable, Nice Audio solution, Good look, Triple slot spacing for GPU slots, Overclocks well, It just works, Solid VRM design
Cons: BIOS is not very good, Board needs some fine tuning, Not many features, Performance is slightly behind the pack
Summary: The Biostar TZ77XE4 really surprised me with its overall aesthetic design, as well as the chosen onboard components, which really do not cut any corners, either in cost, or functionality.
Pros: Relatively affordable pricing, as we can always expect from Biostar, Support for up to three VGAs in CrossfireX or SLI, Simple, yet very much "up to date" aesthetic design, Onboard display outputs for all current common connection types (HDMI, DiplayPort, DVI, and VGA), Highend Realtek ACL898 Aud...
Cons: Limited USB 3.0 ports (only four), No Digital Audio output, Accessories package is rather small
Summary: I found myself quite surprised with this BIOSTAR offering. So often when we've moved outside the realm of brands like ASUS, ASRock, MSI and GIGABYTE to name the big four, we run into problems.
Conclusion: This board was a perfect chance for Biostar to move into markets that they’d never been able to reach before, such as the UK, US and other mainstream Western countries. Biostar had a good set of launch products for Z77 which seemed to offer some unique aspects that other manufacturers may have...
Summary: For Rs 13,390, the Biostar TZ77XE is good value for money. If you have the budget to upgrade your existing motherboard or buy a motherboard to build a new PC, we suggest you consider this board instead of going in for an older generation Z68 chipset based model.
Excerpt: The Biostar brand doesn’t have a massive presence in the UK, at least not in the enthusiast segment of the market. We consider Asus, ASRock and Gigabyte to be the top three enthusiast brands on the market at the moment but this is something Biostar are looking to change with the release of their new...
Excerpt: Продукция Biostar хорошо знакома сборщикам недорогих систем и экономным пользователям, но энтузиасты долгое время не обращали на нее внимания, пока компания не представила новую серию своих решений.
Обзор материнской платы Biostar TZ77XE4 для процессоров Ivy Bridge
31 May 2012
Conclusion: В сухом остатке мы имеет довольно дорогую материнскую плату с топовым набором логики и некоторыми «фишками», взятыми у более удачных продуктов, однако с учётом проведённого тестирования мы замечали некоторые недоработки.
