Extending their coverage of motherboard form factors with the latest chipset and motherboard technology, BIOSTAR has released their newest mini-ITX motherboard based on the Intel B85 chipset, the “Hi-Fi B85N 3D”. Designed for small form factor (SFF) computer systems, mini-ITX boards can often be passively cooled due to their low power consumption architecture, which makes them useful for home theater PC systems, for example.
The “Hi-Fi B85N 3D” supports the Intel 4th generation Core i7 and Core i5 processors in the 1150 package using the Intel B85 single chip architecture. It has 2-DIMM DDR3-1600/1333 slots for up to 16G maximum RAM capacities. The on board DVI+VGA+HDMI supports 4K/2K resolution for a high-definition image display.
BIOSTAR uses in-house technology, such as audio and power regulation upgrades such as Hi-Fi Power and Hi-Fi AMP, a built-in headphone amplifier. With the Intel chipset you get Intel SBA 2.0 (Small Business Advantage) Technology as well as Intel Rapid Start Technology and Intel Smart Connect Technology
The video output includes HDMI which allows full video & audio support via standard DVI output and the “Hi-Fi B85N 3D”, like all BIOSTAR motherboards, boasts 100% solid capacitors. The “Hi-Fi B85N 3D” is Windows 8 ready and has BIO-Remote2 and BIOS Online Update feature for easy management of the system BIOS.
