Biostar has announced the B660MX-E motherboard based on the Intel B660 chipset. The Micro ATX form factor is used, which makes the new product suitable for relatively compact desktop computers.

Four SATA 3.0 ports are available for connecting drives, and the M.2 connector allows installing a 2240/2260/2280 solid state drive with a PCIe 3.0 x4 or SATA interface.
The equipment includes an Intel I219V Gigabit network controller and an ALC897 7.1 audio codec. A separate graphics accelerator can be installed in the PCIe 4.0 x16 slot. There is also a PCIe 3.0 x1 slot for an optional expansion card. The M.2 connector (E Key) allows you to connect a wireless Wi-Fi 6 or Wi-Fi 6E adapter.
