BIOSTAR has outfitted this motherboard with two metal reinforced PCI-E 4.0 x16 slots that supports 16GT/s and PCI-E M.2 4.0 for 64Gb/s in bandwidth with M.2 cooling protection. It also supports 4-DIMM DDR4 for up to 4400(OC). All these specifications are not frivolous, as the BIOSTAR RACING X570GT8 is designed to work in complete harmony with the new 16-core AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors. This masterpiece of a system board is designed for gaming and overclocking enthusiasts in mind!

Feature Highlights

PCI-E 4.0

PCI-E 4.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. At 16GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance bandwidth is doubled that of PCI-E 3.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.

PCI-E M.2 4.0

PCI-e M.2 4.0 is the latest storage interface, it delivers the highest bandwidth and lower latency. It’s two times faster compared with PCI-e M.2 3.0. What is more is that the BIOSTAR RACING X570GT8 supports three of them.


Dual BIOS technology offers a backup BIOS chip to take over the failed main BIOS and recover the system automatically without factory repair. This enables the gamer and the overclocker to go further and faster than ever before.

Tough Power Connectors

Tough Power Connectors are very robust that have larger area to ensure stable and reliable power supply. They can pack more power and durability to make your PC last longer.


The new VIVID LED DJ provides RGB LED lighting zones independently, whilst users can control color, speed and brightness for different modes at ease. Moreover, VIVID LED DJ provides more possibilities for users to create unlimited creativity with LED ROCK ZONE which comes with dual RGB LED products along with RGB Memory Sync to also keep your DRAM synced up with ease.

RAZER Chroma

Compatible BIOSTAR RACING motherboards utilize BIOSTAR VIVID LED DJ to sync with the Razer Chroma to integrate the intelligent lighting system into our RACING series motherboard.


LED ROCK ZONE comes with the RGB 12V LED header and Digital 5V LED header which offer more colorful lighting options for anyone that wants to go full RGB.


The new Racing Armor comes with I/O and Audio Armor to protect the I/O interfaces and audio electronic components from static electricity. What’s better, it exclusively features the on-board RGB full-color LED lighting. This has the remarkable BIOSTAR VIVID LED DJ application for DIY enthusiasts to create their unique personal styles by changing PC color schemes.

Digital Power+

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.

Lightning Charger

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.
