Biostar's microATX H110MD Pro is the company's latest foray into the Skylake motherboard space. This board carries a budget-friendly $54.99 suggested price. Unlike most Skylake boards, the H110MD Pro only supports 16GB of DDR3L 1600 MT/s memory, but it can still accept a wide range of Skylake CPUs with TDPs up to 91W.
For expansion, the board sports one full PCIe x16 3.0 slot and two more PCIe x1 slots. Storage devices can hook up to four SATA 6Gbps ports, but this board omits next-gen options like M.2 and SATA Express. A Realtek RTL8111H controller provides Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, and builders get four USB 3.0 and 6 USB 2.0 ports to work with if internal headers are included in the tally. Those relying on integrated graphics will be restricted to DVI or VGA ports.
While the H110MD's feature set may not appeal to the enthusiast, the price point and microATX form factor may prove appealing for budget-minded gamers and less demanding use cases. Biostar says the board will be available in its eBay store soon.
