Biostar A68N-5000 Review – Conclusion

We noted earlier in the review that Biostar are looking to offer a more simple approach to entry level computing than is offered by AM1. On that front they have succeeded. For some users the thought of buying an APU/CPU and then installing it could be daunting, here we get it pre-installed and then just need to  screw it into a case and add memory (push the modules into slots, thats it). So really a very simple process. The built in graphics core means we don’t need an additional card and nothing is more simple than connecting a screen to HDMI, picture and audio quickly and simply for novice users.

The BIOS used by Biostar is reasonably easy to use, though most users can set the default options and everything will function fine. When in Windows the additional software is also decent. Biostar give us the phone app to act as a remote control which will please some, we thought the internet configuration tool would appeal to most of the target audience too, quick and simple to use.

In terms of performance the A68N-5000 gives us exactly what we would expect. We can play basic games like Minecraft without issue, even some higher level games like DOTA 2 are playable with medium settings which is great. HD video plays without problem and as we noted the latest version of Windows runs fine. There is also enough power to perform basic content creation tasks like converting music.

Would we change anthing about the board? Keeping in mind the price point Biostar are trying to hit, not much. It would be nice to have a couple of extra native USB 2.0 ports. And the four USB here are a bit too close together for our liking, larger USB devices such as flash drives can be a tight fit. The 4x PCIe slot means it is ok for some entry level graphics upgrades, not mainstream, and potentially a slot capable of Wi-Fi would have been appreciated.

In summary. A well priced product which offers decent media and productivity use with the ability to perform some basic gaming. All with low power use and in a form factor which is simple to build a system around.
