The TA970XE board features the latest UEFI BIOS which, in particular, directly supports HDDs over 2 TB. The TA970XE board has four DDR3 DIMMs and supports up to 32 GB dual-channel DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600/1866 MHz and experimental overclocking memory modules clocked up to 2000 MHz. Two PCI-E x16 2.0 slots deliver full-featured support for the most powerful configurations of discrete cards in the ATI CrossFire X mode.

The TA970XE easily supports up to five latest speedy storage devices of the SATA3 6 Gbit/s interface and supports SATA RAID 0,1,5,10 arrays. Besides, the board has one eSATA, two USB 3.0 (ASMedia ASM1042 chip), eight USB 2.0, one FireWire IEEE 1394a (VIA VT6315N chip) ports, a 10/100/1000Mbit/s LAN controller (Realtek RTL8111E chip) and 8-channel HD audio codec (VIA VT1828S chip). Additional peripherals can be connected to two PCI and two PCI-E x1 2.0 slots.

The TA970XE board reflects usage of the most up to date production lines with the very strict quality control. The board uses a 5-phase voltage regulation and high-quality solid capacitors. The board features all BIOSTAR proprietary technologies including the BIOSTAR G.P.U (Green Power Utility) for power optimization at a low load, the exclusive overclocking Rapid Switch utility for quick restart, the Rapid Debug for hardware debugging with a LED light, the BIOS Flasher and the BIOS RELIFE for BIOS update or recovery from a USB drive and the BIO-Remote 2 for remote control of home media system components control from Android or Apple mobile devices. Overclockers will be pleased to see the T-overclocker utilities for the Windows which will let them do fine system tuning.

The newcomer is the unique Clean Tone 2 technology developed by the engineers from BIOSTAR which helps you deliver the finest sound with minimal distortions in the high-frequency range. As there are independent capacitors for each line the Clean-Tone 2 allows reaching an excellent NSR around 98 dB which ideally fits a modern system based on the Windows 7 OS.
