Biostar are back with their latest motherboard based around the Intel B85 single-chip architecture. The new Hi-Fi B85S2G motherboard supports Intel’s latest 4th generation Core i7 and Core i5 processors (LGA 1150).
The new board is aimed at the professional market, ideally for businesses and small firms who need business rich features and a very competitive price to keep their budgets in line. Although the new board is still consumer friendly, and may even prove popular with those who still mine virtual currency thanks to its plentiful selection of PCI-E slots.
All the popular features are here too, including dual gigabit LAN, including load balancing to allow much better networking capabilities. 100% solid capacitors, Intel RST, and most importantly Intel Small Business Advantage for added security.
The Hi-Fi B85S2G comes with support for Direct3D 11.1, HDMI, Blu-ray audio DRM and provides the higher audio output of 24 bit/ 192KHz rather than the 16 bit/ 48KHz from typical motherboards. They’re also Windows 8 ready and have BIOSTAR’s BIO-Remote2 and BIOS Online Update feature for easy management of the system BIOS as well as BIOSTAR’s Charger Booster function.
More details and prices will likely follow soon, but given their target market we expect them to be very competitive.
