Foxconn H87, B85 series Motherboard Released

              Offering a new Choice for Media Center and Business Platform Building


June 4th, 2013, Taipei, Taiwan--With the successful launch of Intel 8 series chipsets, Foxconn has unveiled a new line of next generation motherboards tailored to consumers--H87 series meant for home and multimedia purpose, commercial B85 series for small office end, to present you a brand new notion of how incredibly and unprecedentedly you could be entertained and marvel at the effectiveness.






Foxconn H87/B85 series, adopting the latest Intel H87/B85 Chipsets and LGA1150 platform of new technology, support the latest 22nm Intel® Core™ processors of the 4th generation, code named Haswell. In addition, the exclusive Intel's Smart Connect and Rapid Start technology, along with Intel® Small Business Advantage bundled, make it possible for users to experience the fastest and most stable and vivid recreation ever. The integrated Intel® HD graphics can offer excellent visual quality which is almost the equal to that a discrete graphics can. Despite the foregoing, the marvelous performance and reasonable price, in all likelihoods, make them the most cost efficient option.

The new Chipsets technology dramatically improved motherboard and the built-in support performance, and further enhances core graphics performance as well, while supporting DirectX 11.1. The flexible IO design, high speed PCIe 3.0 expansion slot, and SATAIII and USB 3.0 connectors offering a multi-choice as traditional or novel as you wish. The dual video outputs (D-Sub, DVI-D or HDMI) make your choice of display flexible and diverse. Hence, H87MX/B85MX is definitely the ideal for your next multimedia rig.



Support the latest LGA1150 Intel® 4th generation processors



Haswell CPU, using 22nm processor, integrates voltage control function--FIVR (Fully Integrated Voltage Regulator), with which an accurate control of the processor's power consumption and heat is possible while high-efficient energy conservation is realized. The auto on and off activation brings you the deeper C-state, a greater energy conservation state.

Intel® HD Graphics which found in the 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors supports 4K, 4096 x 2160 resolution, and integrates high-performance graphics and media processing right. The supported DirectX 11.1 can provide you with ultimate performance in HD video and games.




Rapid Start Technology--More Convenient & Energy-saving

Rapid Start is still supported by the H87/B85 motherboard, with which the system could be resumed within 5 to 6 seconds from a a zero power hibernation state.





Smart Response Technology-- SSD like performance with HDD capacity

Smart Response provides a middle ground between capacious and economical HDD, and a fast, yet expensive SSD. With it, one can retain your high-capacity hard drive, and speed it up using a small SSD. This technology uses the high speed SSD as a cache of the HDD to make booting faster, and the system more responsive overall.




Dynamic Storage Accelerator--The SRT for SSD

This is a powerful technology dedicated to your SSD. It can maximize storage I/O throughput performance by dynamically adjusting power state policies based on load conditions and power profile, and deliver up to 25% storage IO throughput performance improvement in OS maximum performance mode.






The 3.0 Era--Turn over a new leaf for the hard core gamers

Foxconn H87/B85 motherboard supports PCIE Gen3.0, which makes signaling rate nearly twice the Gen2 whose is 5Gbps, securing high speeds, while minimizing crosstalk and skew, which is critical to maintaining high signal integrity.




Dual Channel DDR3--System performance booster

H87/B85 support dual channel DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1600MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications.

image011.pngUSB 3.0 output is fully supported by all the 8 series motherboards, which marks the real coming of USB 3.0 era. Its 10 times the speed of USB 2.0 makes it the best choice for data transfer of mobile devices. The high-speed SATA 3.0 delivers super fast speed of 6Gbps, twice of the data transfer rates of the previous SATA 2.0 (3 Gbps). By dint of which, H87/B85 series motherboards can well address the demanding performance and signal integrity requirements of future high-end computing products.




5.1 Channel High Definition Audio




5.1 Channel HD is capable of delivering high-quality sound for up to six channels at 192 kHz/32-bit, providing you an extremely realistic audio experience.




Fox One, Fox LiveUpdate , Fox Logo--Foxconn Exclusive Technologies Support
