ASUS Unveils B85M-Gamer Motherboard

Designed for the budget buyer, the micro-ATX gaming motherboard features an Intel B85 Express chipset for 4th- and new 4th-generation Intel Core processors.

ASUS has released the B85M-Gamer, a new Intel B85 Express chipset-based motherboard that marks the first micro-ATX (mATX) model in the ASUS Gamer series. B85M-Gamer is intended to be used with Pentium, Core i3, and entry-level Core i5 CPUs and NVIDIA GTX 750/750 TI or AMD R7 GPUs. The motherboard features Intel Gigabit Ethernet networking for lag-free online gaming experiences and LANGuard for surge protection. †

B85M-Gamer comes with ASUS SupremeFX technology built in, offering near-lossless audio with a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB. The SupremeFX audio chipset is isolated from electromagnetic interference (EMI) by a protective shield, preserving the integrity of the audio signals. ‘Red-line shielding’ horizontally separates B85M-Gamer’s audio components from the rest of the motherboard. This combination is designed to eliminate analog interference to ensure flawless sound quality. SupremeFX also has a built-in amplifier that drives high-quality headphones all the way up to 300ohm impedance.

Additionally, the new ASUS mATX gaming motherboard includes AI Suite 3, an ASUS-exclusive dashboard-style control panel that lets players fine-tune their B85M-Gamer-based systems through an intuitive interface.
