With a user friendly interface, you can easily adjust the volume of every speaker to make a well balanced surround sound. And of course, the built-on-board amplifier always gives you a super powerful sound compared to other motherboards.
Upgrading your Audio performance in the easiest way is choosing BIOSTAR ultimate Motherboard. It does support Blu-ray audio DRM (compatible driver/software) and provide the higher audio output of 24 bit/ 192KHz than that of the 16 bit/ 48KHz from the normal MB. You will experience the high quality sound effect with pure Blu-Ray Audio.
Audio power is an important factor in audio quality. Most AV equipment isolates the power supply for each analog and digital signal to gather high-quality sound reproduction. Equipped with BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Power technology, it will utilize audio components with independent power design for a significant reduction in electronic noise and superb sound quality.
BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Ground (Golden Line) is noise-blocking multi-layer PCB design to isolate analog audio signals from digital sources. Unique PCB layout is ideal for exceptionally clear and high fidelity sound.
BIOSTAR Hi-Fi series motherboards have a sampling rate of 192kHz/24-bit which delivers a high quality audio through an analog connection to your home theater system, multi-channel speakers and high-end headphones. You can enjoy real Blu-ray grade high-definition sound that you’ve never experienced before.
The built-in amplifier can drive major high-end headphones with over 100dB loads and offer high band-width, low noise, high slew rate and low distortion audio from the front panel I/O. Gaming enthusiasts can enjoy a fuller range of dynamic sound with crisper details and less distortion.
Smart EAR is a windows-based audio utility which allows you to easily adjust system volume. With its user-friendly GUI, you can also increase or decrease impedance setting (Low/High Gain) to optimize your headphone performance. You can easily enjoy high-quality and awesome sound.
Metal-oxide film resistors are made of metal oxides such as tin oxide. The electric characteristics are greater stability and reliability than regular metal film resistors when operating in an extremely broad working temperature range. This special component is used in applications with high endurance audio demands.
BIOSTAR Hi-Fi series motherboards come with high quality ‘Non-Polarized Electrolysis Electric audio capacitors’ for each audio channel circuit. The customized audio capacitors deliver low noise, low distortion, and wide bandwidth to achieve the highest sound resolution and sound expansion. The critical component will ensure the most realistic sound effects to gaming enthusiasts.
The new 4K2K resolution enables high-definition image display with four times the resolution of full HD. 4K2K display faithfully expresses bright, highly detailed content that fills the entire screen with lifelike images. Connect with PCs via a single HDMI cable for displaying 4K2K data.
DVI is better than VGA for LCD displays since it is digital while VGA is analog. For LCD displays, the picture is digitized pixel per pixel. Through DVI, the panel gets data for each pixel, so the picture generated in the Graphics device matches the pixels on the panel itself.
DirectX 12 introduces the next version of Direct3D, the graphics API at the heart of DirectX. Direct3D is one of the most critical pieces of a game or game engine, and it has been redesigned to be faster and more efficient than ever before. Direct3D 12 enables richer scenes, more objects, and full utilization of modern GPU hardware.
USB 3.1 Type-C
USB 3.1 doubles the data transfer rate from 5Gbps to 10Gbps compared with USB3.0, and also is backward compatible with all existing USB3.0 & USB2.0 devices. The Type-C connector is fully reversible which makes it convenient, and it also can save your charging time on portable devices up to 50% compared with Type-A connector.
USB 3.1 is a new standard known as SuperSpeed +, in order to highlight the improvement from USB3.0 (SuperSpeed) transmission speed. The new standard doubles data transfer rate from 5Gbps to 10Gbps. It is also backward compatible with existing USB 3.0 connectors and all the USB 2.0 devices.
PCI-e M.2 32Gb/s
PCI-e M.2 32Gb/s is the latest storage interface, and delivers the highest bandwidth and lower latency. It's 3 times faster compared with PCI-e M.2 10Gb/s.
AMD AM4 RACING motherboards come with the whole new Gaming LAN-DRAGON, and the exclusive utility FLY.NET.
PCI-E Gen 3.0
PCI-E 3.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard. At 8GT/s bit rate, the interconnect performance bandwidth is doubled over PCI-E 2.0, while preserving compatibility with software and mechanical interfaces.
Experience fast data transfers at 5 Gbps with USB 3.0. USB 3.0 transfers data 10X faster and is backward compatible with previous USB 2.0 components.
The primary advantages of DDR4 over DDR3, include higher module density, lower voltage requirements, coupled with higher data transfer rate.
The working environment is getting deteriorating and moist (rural, coastal, etc.). The PCB will be oxidizing easily by damp or absorbed moisture, and ionic migration or CAF (Conductive Anodic Filament) will be generated. Moisture-proof PCB meets high density and high reliability requirements for moisture proof.
Low RdsOn P-Pak MOS
Low resistance design can significantly reduce the current out of energy loss. Low temperature, small size, and excellent thermal conductivity.

Dual BIOS technology offers a backup BIOS chip to take over the failed main BIOS and recover the system automatically without factory repair.
Super Anti-Surge Protection
BIOSTAR exclusive Anti-Surge design provides the best protection of board and extends the product life. Having the latest model of "Transient Voltage Suppressor" on-board can effectively protect the board circuit, reducing the shocks caused by ESD as well as other damages arising from overvoltage transients to enhance system durability.
Super LAN Surge Protection
Super LAN Surge Protection provides LAN port with more advanced antistatic protection capabilities by adding an integrated chip to strengthen electrical stability and prevent damage from lightning strikes and electrical surges. SLSP (Super LAN Surge Protection) series motherboard upgrades the existing system protection standards with maximum 4X protection compared to other board makers.
ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) is the major factor to destroy PC by electrical overstress(EOS) condition. ESD occurred when PC users touch any devices connected to their PC, which may result in damage to motherboard or parts. ESD protection is designed to protect the motherboard and equipment from damage by EOS.
On-board dedicated power fuse helps prevent USB port failure. It prevents USB Port overcurrent and safegurands your system and device lifespan.
