The Biostar Hi-Fi A85W 3D is a socket FM2 motherboard that integrates the company’s in-house “Hi-Fi 3D” audio technology.
The tech aims to enable “high definition multi-dimensional sound” and offers a built-in 3D amplifier with over 100 dB load and up to 600 ohm impedance, a sampling rate of 192 kHz / 24-bit, and a Hi-V metalized polypropylene film capacitor for each audio channel circuit with a wide bandwidth and low distortion and noise.
Also included is a suite of software tools including six different types of 3D Sound Fields, Smart Ear 3D that provides “true reproduction of a virtual 3D space using any typical set of headphones” and Smart ?, an exclusive function that automatically assigns a gain and impedance range that is appropriate to your headphones.
Aside from these audio enhancements, the Hi-Fi A85W 3D is identical to the standard A85W motherboard and includes four DIMMs with a support for up to 64 GB of DDR3-2400, eight SATA3 connectors, a Realtek RTL8111F LAN controller, two USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports. With regard to expansion, the motherboard features two PCIe x16 2.0 (x16 + x4) slots, two PCIe x1 2.0 slots and two legacy PCI slots.
