ASUS B85-PRO GAMER explodes the myth that dedicated sound cards are always better, with integrated SupremeFX technology that achieves near-lossless audio quality with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 115dB — meaning you hear every sound detail. And with exclusive Sonic Radar technology pinpointing the precise direction of in-game sounds you even get a leg up in the game!
SupremeFX is an exclusive ASUS technology that's designed for one purpose — to deliver audio that's in a class of its own.
Horizontally separates SupremeFX audio components from the rest of the motherboard, effectively eliminating interference to ensure flawless sound quality
Drives up to 300Ω load impedance for more impactful output than standard onboard audio hardware, so you can enjoy superb effects and superior surround sound for truly immersive gaming experiences.
A carefully-engineered protective shield isolates the advanced audio chipset from electromagnetic interference (EMI), preserving the integrity of the audio signals.
Added to the mix to deliver a warmer, natural sound to complete the audio experience.
With this exclusive tool you'll benefit from a stealthy overlay that displays the precise direction and origin of in-game sounds, helping you to hone your enemy-pinpointing skills and giving you the edge in first-person shooters.
The difference between defeat and victory can be measured in milliseconds. That's why we've equipped B85-PRO GAMER with networking technology that puts your frags first!
The very latest Intel Gigabit Ethernet means faster, smoother gaming — always. Intel's LAN has the serious double advantage of communicating directly with Intel CPUs and offering exceptionally high TCP and UDP throughput. This significantly reduces the processor's workload, so there's more power for your game and your gameplay!
ASUS engineers used IxChariot, an independent network-assessment test tool, to determine just how much quicker Intel Gigabit Ethernet deals with the UDP data packets that are vital for responsive gaming. The results are in — and with B85-Pro Gamer your game-data packets flow up to two times (2X) faster than other gaming-LAN technologies.
GameFirst II with cFosSpeed traffic-shaping technology adds even more lag-reducing support, with an EZ Mode that lets you lower lag with no expert knowledge – by up to eight times (8X)! If you're a tweaker, use Advanced Mode for hardcore controls.
While you protect your back in the game, B85-PRO GAMER protects all sides in the real world. Great motherboard design is all in the detail, which is why ASUS engineers kitted out B85-PRO GAMER with loads of brilliant protective features. Individually they're tough, together they're unstoppable.
Exceptionally high-quality Japanese-made (Nichicon GT series) solid-state capacitors offer 20%-greater temperature endurance and lifespans that are up to five times (5X) longer that generic equivalents.
B85-PRO GAMER DIGI+ VRM voltage-regulator module (VRM) is one of the finest in the industry, ensuring ultra-smooth and ultra-clean power delivery to the CPU at all times!
B85-PRO GAMER's connection ports and DRAM are protected against overcurrent and short-circuit damage by onboard resettable fuses, extending your motherboard's life.
Crafted from chromium-plated, corrosion-resistant stainless steel, B85-PRO GAMER's input/output (I/O) panel is super-strong — and last up to three times (3X) longer than ordinary panels!
With ASUS ESD Guards your B85-PRO GAMER is actively protected against sudden electrostatic discharge (ESD), meaning the components will last much longer — and you get protection that's up to twice as resilient as industry standards!
B85-PRO GAMER is an epic motherboard, so you'd expect it to boast epic graphics support. From native next-generation 4K/UHD (ultra-high-definition) resolutions to support for multiple graphics cards (multi-GPU), B85-PRO GAMER is a visual master – so prepare to be stunned!
Adore high-definition visuals? Then imagine experiencing your favorite games with four times (4X) the number of pixels. That's what you'll enjoy with B85-PRO GAMER's integrated graphics — gaming resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160 pixels via HDMI for incredible visual clarity, detail and realism.
The fastest graphics cards require the fastest interfaces, and B85-PRO GAMER has the very latest and fastest PCI Express 3.0 expansion slot (not to mention three PCI Express 2.0 and three PCI slots!).
The B85 platform lets you unleash full power of multi-GPU setups with optimized PCI Express allocation for visuals that never stutter!
Exclusive ASUS GPU Boost technology lets you accelerate B85-PRO GAMER's integrated GPU (iGPU) for extreme graphics performance safely and easily via a user-friendly interface – it's a free iGPU level-up!
AI Suite 3 is an exclusive ASUS dashboard-style control panel that lets you fine-tune almost every aspect of your B85-PRO GAMER-based system for the best balance between performance, stability and efficiency — all via a simple and intuitive interface.
