Biostar Reveals Hi-Fi B85S3+ Motherboard

After announcing its Hi-Fi H81S3 Micro-ATX motherboard, as well as its Hi-Fi B85N 3D Mini-ITX motherboard, Biostar has further expanded its lineup of Hi-Fi series motherboards with the new Hi-Fi B85S3+ Micro-ATX motherboard. This motherboard, as its name indicates, features the B85 chipset from Intel and has the LGA1150 socket, thus providing support for Intel's new Haswell processors.

The motherboard features Biostar's Puro Hi-Fi Audio, as well as its Hi-Fi AMP (which is a little bit of circuitry aboard that is used as a headphone amplifier). Other 'Hi-Fi' labeled features include Hi-Fi Power, Hi-Fi Ground, Hi-Fi Resistor, and Hi-Fi Cap.

Biostar's new motherboard features four DDR3 memory slots, a single PCIe x16 Gen3 slot, two PCIe 1x slots, as well as a legacy PCI slot. Other features include the presence of six SATA ports, as well as a USB 3.0 header and a handful of USB 2.0 headers. It looks like the motherboard also carries four VRM phases.

External connectivity is handled by two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, 7.1 channel HD audio, an old-school PS/2 port, a VGA port, HDMI, DVI, and lastly, a Gigabit Ethernet port.

There was no word on pricing or availability.

    Does biostar has enough sales to keep its R&D going? I have never met a person who owns a biostar board.

    Question is, is that good enough for someone to pick a Biostar MB? I certainly wouldn't mind a decent quality on-board audio, but is it really decent?
