Biostar offers new motherboard for audio fans

The Taiwanese maker of motherboards Biostar will soon release the new B85Z micro-ATX motherboard, which is designed for people who love to listen to music.

The motherboard is based on the Intel B85 chipset and hence it comes with the latest Intel LGA 1150 socket with support for all Haswell-based processors. Measuring 224 x 174 mm, the board comes with high quality capacitors and a 4-phase power supply system. There are two memory slots for DDR3-1600 memory (up to 16 GB), one PCI-E x16 slot, two PCI-E x1 slots, four SATA 3.0 ports, two SATA 2.0 ports, a Realtek RTL8111GR Ethernet controller, USB 3.0 support, DVI and D-Sub/VGA ports, a PS/2 port and more. The sound system of the board consists of a 7.1-channel Realtek ALC892 sound chip, a power amplifier for headphones and specially selected capacitors and resistors for superior on-board sound.

The price of the motherboard is unclear but given the value chipset and the small board size we doubt the B85Z will be very expensive.
