Biostar, the new B450HN is suitable for small builds
It seems like a rather unusual time to launch a motherboard based on the AMD B450 chipset, but Biostar has done just that with its B450NH which supports Ryzen processors from Summit Ridge to Matisse and Ryzen APUs from Bristol Ridge to Picasso.

Biostar B450NH was built in the mini-ITX form factor and offers two memory slots, allowing to reach the maximum quantity of 64GB. Surprisingly, B450NH works perfectly with both non-ECC and ECC memory modules.

Biostar equips the motherboard with four SATA III connectors that support RAID 0, 1 and 10 arrays. However, it is only present one M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 slot for ultra-fast SSDs with a maximum length of 80mm. Also remember that older APUs, such as Bristol Ridge and Raven Ridge processors, only support SATA-based M.2 drives. Finally, there are two Realtek products: the RTL8111H Ethernet controller provides a single Gigabit Ethernet port for Internet connectivity, while the ALC887 audio codec handles all the sound and three 3.5mm audio jacks are integrated.

As for the video outputs, the Biostar B450NH has an HDMI port and a D-Sub port, but, for obvious reasons, to use them it will be necessary to take advantage of a Ryzen APU since Ryzen processors do not have an integrated GPU. The rear panel also houses a PS / 2 combo port, four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and two USB 2.0 ports. For added connectivity, Biostar has inserted a USB 2.0 header and a USB 3.2 Gen 1 header, each of which is capable of providing up to two matching ports.

At the moment, Biostar has not disclosed the price or the availability of B450NH, so you will have to wait a little longer to find out more about it.
