    Woah woah woah woah woah.

    That X370GT3 - that's an mATX board using the top end chipset, right?

    high end mATX mobos straight out the door? Good work Biostar

    If the Asrock Taichi and MSI Carbon series live up to spec expectations and reliability / build quality, and everyone who "just wants a board" pick Asus/ Gigabyte boards without looking, then this theme doesn't fill me with hope for Biostar. If they are the only ones (unlikely?) with mATX X370 that will help, though.

    Disappointed to see so few motherboard manufacturers putting 5GB LAN (or faster) into these top end motherboards.

    Re: Biostar lists five Racing Series AMD Ryzen AM4 motherboards

    It's a shame the voltage regulation is weaker on the biostars though.

    Most of the others are running 8 or (in the case of the top end rog) even 10 phase.

    The biostars are only 6 at the top end.
    Considering what AMD are giving us with XFR (auto-overclocking) and some of the "shocked" pictures of folks under NDA testing the chips (5ghz on air sounds possible), voltage regulation is going to be quite important for crazy clocks.

    Might end up not mattering but it's something I'll be considering in my purchase.

    Best non-flagship board (cos they're always over-done) I can afford + 1400X is my current target.

    As much as they are otherwise useless, WCCFtech have the full board lists including voltage phases:

    I think this one may well be the overclockers board of choice, we'll see though.

    That's still twice as many as you used to get on AM3+ boards claiming 95W CPU support.

    I think just assuming that more phases == better is a bit simplistic: whilst it's likely that the individual phase circuitry is equivalent on each board, it's presumably possible that using a smaller number of better-engineered power phases could be better...?
