Biostar or Biostar Microtech International Corp, is a motherboard manufacturer based in Taiwan, designing and manufacturing of computer hardware products such as motherboards, video cards, barebone computers and industrial PCs, to meet the demands of market development by providing more integrated solutions to customers.

Biostar is an independent company listed on the main floor of Taiwan Stock Market, stock id number TSE - 2399. Biostar caters to the entry-level through mainstream to high-end markets.

The company was founded in 1986, manufacturing XT form factor mainboards and in later years add-on cards. In 1999 Biostar were listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange & also certified ISO 9001 standard within the same year.

Biostar has shifted from the SI/OEM market to the channel market with the portion of branded products close to 100 percent.

To date, the company is the first to allow end-users to modify voltages and frequencies of the video card's GPU and memory to boost performance to extreme limits (overclocking). Those cards are either called "V-Ranger" or "V-Series".

Their mainboards, notably the "T-Power" and "T-Series", have been widely reviewed to be highly overclockable achieving world record FSB overclocks.

In October 2008 Biostar was awarded “Top 20 Taiwan Global Brand” conducted by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) with an estimate brand value of US$ 46 million. Only three companies had a chance to crack the Top 20 list for the first time and Biostar was among them.
