BIOSTAR has announced that they’re getting ready to launch the newest member of their Hi-Fi motherboard series, the BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z97Z7. With a name that already has Hi-Fi in it, we expect it to be have some solid audio functions. And it has, packed with Gold Plated Audio Connectors and Hi-Fi 7.1 channel Blu-Ray Audio.
The board is ATX form factor and features the Z97 chipset and LGA 1150 CPU socket and has 4x DDR3 2900(OC) memory slots. An 8 Phase Power Design and Super Conductive Heat sinks as well as Super Durable Solid Capacitors are among the assets of this board.
The I/O area looks to have 4x USB 3.0, 2x USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet and 6x Audio connectors for the surround sound. HDMI 4k is also supported and there are DVI and D-SUB connectors as well.
In addition, the board will feature new BIOSTAR innovations that improve durability and stability such as Super Rapid Debug3, Super Durable Box Headers, Super Durable Solid Capacitors and Super Durable Ferrite Chokes.
Other features worth mentioning are the PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot and an M.2 slot wired through PCI Express. The press release was very short, but I’m sure we’ll see more news on this board very soon. No word on price or availability yet.
