Manila, Philippines(10th February, 2015) — ASUS today announcedthe B85M-Gamer,a new Intel®B85 Express chipset-based motherboard that marks the first micro-ATX (mATX) model in the popular ASUS Gamer series. TheB85M-Gamer is ready for the latest 4th-generation Intel Coreprocessors, and ispacked with multiple exclusive game-enhancing technologies for the best gaming fun in even the smallest builds.

The B85M-Gamer is engineered to provide the finest gaming experience for its users. It is equipped with the Intel Gigabit Ethernet networking for lag-free online gaming and the ASUS SupremeFX audio technology for flawless reproduction of in-game sounds. The motherboard also has the ASUS-exclusive Gamer’s Guardian, having high-quality components for exceptional durability and reliability. Thisnew mighty mATX motherboard also includes the ASUS-exclusive AI Suite 3 toolbox for customization and efficiency.

Built-in Blazing-Fast Online Gaming Technologies

The B85M-Gamer benefits from Intel Gigabit Ethernetin delivering ultra-smooth online gameplay. This advanced networking technology communicates directly with Intel processors offering exceptionally-high networking throughput, lowering overall processing demands and improving efficiency — delivering more power for games and on-screen action. Using network-assessment tools, ASUS engineers determined that the Intel Gigabit Ethernet in the ASUS B85M-Gamer has an improvement of up to 200% as compared with other competing solutions. The ASUS B85M-Gamer also incorporates the ASUS-exclusive LANGuard as an additional defense against static electricity discharges while also improving speed.

Size-defying Gaming Audio

Built inside the B85M-Gamer is theASUS-exclusive SupremeFX technology, capable of producing near-lossless audio with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB — bringing every detail to life.

The advanced SupremeFX audio chipset is isolated from electromagnetic interference (EMI) by a protective shield, preserving the integrity of the audio signals. An exclusive ‘red-line shielding’ horizontally separates B85M-Gamer’s audio components from the rest of the motherboard. This unique combination effectively eliminates analog interference to ensure flawless sound quality. Premium ELNA® audio capacitors are added to the mix to deliver a warmer, natural sound, completinga unique audio experience from a mATX board.

SupremeFX also has a built-in amplifier that drives high-quality headphones — all the way up to 300ohm impedance — enabling the B85M-Gamer to deliver audio output that is as great as a dedicated sound card.

Ultimate Real-World Protection from Gamer’s Guardian Components

The ASUS B85M-Gamer benefits from high-quality, highly-durable Gamer’s Guardian components for exceptional real-world protection.

The Gamer’s Guardian feature includes onboard resettable fuses that protect the connection ports and DRAM against overcurrent and short-circuit damage, and ESD Guards on the USB ports, audio connectors and Ethernet (LAN) port ensure that B85M-Gamer is actively protected against sudden electrostatic discharge (ESD). The result is that the components last much longer.

The B85M-Gamer also has the Digi+, an ASUS-exclusive voltage-regulator module (VRM) that provides ultra-smooth, ultra-clean power to the processor, enhancing performance, increasing efficiency and ensuring reliability. The motherboard’s resilience is furthered by a stainless-steel back input/output (I/O) panel that’s chromium-plated and corrosion-resistant to last up to three times (3X) longer than traditional panels.

Pumped-up gaming fun with an exclusive tweaking toolbox

The new ASUS mATX gaming motherboard includes the AI Suite 3, an ASUS-exclusive dashboard-style control panel that lets players fine-tune almost every aspect of B85M-Gamer-based systems for the best balance between performance, stability and efficiency — all via a simple and intuitive interface.
