ASUS offers new gamer-oriented motherboard

Most gamer-oriented motherboards are large pieces of hardware that include numerous slots for memory, peripheral devices and video cards. While this is usually a good thing, the fact is that the more hardware you have on a motherboard the more prone to failure it is. Besides that why bother with large motherboards when you really don’t need them?

ASUS has offered a solution to all these issues with the debut of the new micro-ATX form factor B85M-Gamer motherboard. This piece of hardware offers all the features a gamer would need, yet the motherboard is small-sized and can be even used in small form factor PCs.

As you can see from the name of the product, the B85M-Gamer is based on the Intel B85 Express chipset and offers support for Intel’s LGA 1150 Haswell and Haswell Refresh processors. The board comes with four memory slots for DDR3 SDRAM (up to 32 GB), which means you can satisfy your hunger for RAM with no worries. The motherboard is also provided with one PCI-E 3.0 x16 slot, two PCI-E x1 slots, four SATA 3.0 ports, two SATA 2.0 ports, four USB 3.0 ports and six USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, D-Sub/VGA video ports, Gigabit Ethernet, AMI UEFI BIOS and PS/2 jacks for mice and motherboards. One thing worth noting is that the B85M-Gamer comes with high-quality 8-channel HD sound produced by a SupremeFX chip, so if you are not an audiophile, this sound chip will do great for you. Moreover the motherboard features various protection features such as protection against electric spikes and more.

There’s no information on when the B85M-Gamer will be on the market and how much it will cost.
