Motherboard BIOSTAR Z790A-SILVER – Digital PWM, SMART BIOS Update…

The Z790A-SILVER motherboard is the flagship model of BIOSTAR’s SILVER series, which it is proud to announce. BIOSTAR is a major manufacturer of motherboards, gpus, and storage devices today.

The Z790A-SILVER, a brilliant piece of technology built on the Intel Z790 architecture, is intended to provide devoted service to gamers, content makers, and casual users.

With support for Intel CoreTM CPUs from the 12th and 13th generations, a quad DIMM DDR5 memory interface, and a PCIe 5.0×16 slot specifically designed for that monstrous new graphics card, it’s the perfect option for a tough gaming setup that elevates regular players to true champions.


The Z790A-SILVER is an addition to BIOSTAR’s RACING line of motherboards. It features the same sturdy design and aesthetics as its predecessors, including the familiar RACING stripes on its PCB and Silver-colored cooling blocks.

The Z790A-SILVER motherboard’s chosen storage technologies are SATA III (6Gb/s) and PCIe M.2 4.0. With improved USB 3.2 (Gen2) type-C and type-A connectors for lightning-fast data transfers, they are incredibly stable and effective for any task.

The Z790A is no exception to BIOSTAR’s SILVER series motherboards’ standard inclusion of intelligent safety features. Superior power delivery, improved power economy, and improved performance at higher switching frequencies are provided by BIOSTAR’s ground-breaking DIGITAL PWM technology and Dr. MOS integrated driver ICs.

Furthermore, M.2 Cooling Protection, ESD Protection, and OC / OV / OH Protection keep the system from overheating and critical electrical malfunctions, extending its hardware lifespan greatly.
The Z790A-SILVER motherboard uses Realtek’s RTL8125B LAN chipset supported by BIOSTAR’s 2.5Guard, featuring 2.5x higher data transfer speeds with electrical surge and lightning discharge protection.BIOSTAR Z790A-SILVER

Some of the standout features of the Z790A-SILVER motherboard’s rear I/O panel are the provision of 1 x HDMI Port (HDMI 2.1) and 1 x DP Port (DP1.2) for rich, 4K video output. With one SMART BIOS UPDATE Button and a SMART BIOS USB Port, BIOSTAR has given special attention to user-friendly functionality so that users can easily update their vital BIOS patches.

In conclusion, the Z790A-SILVER is the best-selling gaming motherboard from BIOSTAR. It was created for customers who are fiercely competitive and seek out the highest-performing motherboard capable of maximizing the performance of the newest CPUs, graphics cards, and RAMs available.BIOSTAR Z790A-SILVER
