Biostar TB85 is Ready for Work, Play, or Bitcoin Mining

Based on the Intel B85 chipset, the TB85 supports Intel's 4th gen Core i7/i5 processors in the 1150 package. On top of incorporating features that are useful for IT departments, the new motherboard also allows for "Bitcoin Mining" with six PCIe slots for users who wish to create a dedicated mining machine. With the TB85’s PCIe slots, you get a board that can be loaded up with graphics cards for mining.

Boasting 100% solid capacitors, it integrates Intel RST for fast system boot and application load time, and Intel SBA, which delivers business-centric security protection, such as after-hours virus scans and data backup, and blocks recognition of unwanted USB drives.

For entertainment, the TB85 comes with support for Direct3D 11.1, HDMI, Blu-ray audio DRM, and provides the higher audio output of 24bit/192KHz rather than the 16bit/48KHz from typical motherboards. Windows-8 ready, the board also features proprietary Biostar technologies like BIO-Remote2, BIOS Online Update, as well as Charger Booster function.
