CeBIT: Biostar also unveils Z87/H87/B85 Haswell motherboards

By ,


After ASRock, Biostar also introduced its line-up of LGA1150 motherboards for Intel Haswell. Biostar appears to really emphasize sound quality, judging from the 'Hi-Fi' in the name. It's unclear however what type of audio chip is used, but we do know it provides 7.1 audio and that it has two extra channels. These motherboards are pre-production samples, so the final versions could be different.

A trend we also saw with ASRock, is that the new Biostar motherboards are equipped with Solid Caps capacitors. Plenty of display connectors are also present, which makes it possible to connect multiple monitors to the integrated graphics of the Haswell processors. The SATA ports in the H87 and Z87 chipsets are all third-generation, but the B85 motherboards also has a SATA 2 port.
