Biostar has 890FX based motherboard on display
Cebit 2010: TA890FXE
Biostar had its TA890FXE motherboard on display and as the name suggests this board is based on AMD's 890FX + SB850.
The board will take AM3 CPUs up to 140W, comes with four PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots, two PCI slots and four DDR3 memory slots for up to 16GB.
This midrange board features SATA3 6Gbps, courtesy of the SB850 but it doesn’t have USB 3.0, which is pretty strange considering that USB 3.0 was on pretty much every motherboard company’s mind on this year’s Cebit. It’s true that such a move might reflect positively on the pricing, but we’re not sure how well will it fare in sales. The board should be reasonably priced when it arrives around April.
