BIOSTAR launched the Intel’s 6th-generation processor powered motherboard designed for for gaming and entertainment featuring Hi-Fi Audio, Hi-Fi Power and 3D Hi-Fi to fully maximize the listening experience.
The BIOSTAR Hi-FI H170S3H comes with an optimal power design with MOSFET cooling for sturdier power delivery to the CPU to enhance performance, coupled with Crossfire support with 2x PCI-E X16 slots gives you more flexibility in upgrading later on with another GPU. The board also supports onboard dual-HDMI, both are 4K ready. The Hi-Fi H170S3H is certified BIOSTAR 6+ Experience board covering BIOSTAR’s expertise: Audio+, Video+, Speed+, Protection+, Durability+ and DIY+.
The BIOSTAR Hi-Fi H170S3H targets upgraders, new system builders and budget gamers who want to jump in the Skylake platform without spending for a complete system overhaul. Now gamers can use your their older DDR3 modules and plug in another graphics card for more gaming horsepower.
Intel’s latest technology helps it deliver bandwidth and connectivity options and enables it for more expansion. It also offers integrated graphics, PCI-E M.2, PCI-E RAID0,1 support as well as more USB3.0 ports.
In addition to its wider-array of connectivity and expansion support, the Hi-Fi H170S3H features more power-phases, completely 100% All-Solid Capacitors used in the board with included MOSFET heatsink for cooler operation.
For music lover, the Hi-Fi H170S3H comes with Hi-Fi Technology built inside, delivering Blu-Ray audio, Puro Hi-Fi features an integrated independent audio power design with a built-in amplifier. The technology utilizes audio components with an independent power delivery design for a significant reduction in electronic noise producing superb sound quality.
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, the Hi-Fi H170S3H utilizes audio components with independent power designs for a significant reduction in electronic noise and superb sound quality.
For online game lovers, The Hi-Fi H170S3H supports DirectX 12 which 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 we’ve redesigned it to be faster and more efficient than ever before. Direct3D 12 enables richer scenes, more objects, and full utilization of modern GPU hardware.
With PCI-E 3.0 technology, there is 2 times the bandwidth of PCI-E 2.0 and allows for up to 1GB/s of bandwidth per lane per direction.
