BIOSTAR Releases Micro ATX Motherboard – Hi-Fi H81 S3

October 14th, 2013, Taipei, Taiwan – BIOSTAR has released their newest micro-ATX motherboard based on the Intel

H81 chipset, the “Hi-Fi H81 S3”. The board supports the Intel 4th generation Core i7 and Core i5 processors. It

features Intel single chip architecture with HD 4600Graphics, along with a new integrated memory controller that

will run at speeds up to 1600MHz. The H81 chipset has two SATA 6Gb/s ports (plus four SATA 3Gb/s ports), and

two USB 3.0 headers. The “Hi-Fi H81 S3” supports one DIMM per memory channel for a maximum of two sticks

of RAM for up to 16Gigs. The “Hi-Fi H81 S3” is a great option for small form factor systems where you rarely

have more than one discrete card and two SATA drives. Being Intel based boards, they will also feature Intel Rapid

Start Technology and Intel Smart Connect Technology.

These boards will proudly show off BIOSTAR’s in-house technology, such as audio and power regulation upgrades

such as Hi-Fi Power and Hi-Fi AMP. The video output includes HDMI with HDCP which allows full video &

audio support via standard DVI output.

The “Hi-Fi H81 S3” is also PCI-E Gen 3.0 and USB 3.0 Ready. PCI-E 3.0 is the next evolution of the ubiquitous

and general-purpose PCI Express I/O standard and USB 3.0 gives USB the fastest data transfers at 5 Gbps.
