ASUS has this week announced a new addition to its range of motherboards with the unveiling of the new B150M Expedition motherboard which expands the Expedition range even further and follows on from the recent launch of the ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 Expedition graphics card.
The ASUS Expedition range of hardware has been designed to provide a durable and rugged selection of components that are suitable for Internet gaming café’s, yet are still at an affordable price point.
Specifications for the B150M Expedition include a socket LGA1151 motherboard with DDR3 memory support, offering two memory slots that support up to 16GB of dual-channel DDR3-1866 memory.
The narrow micro-ATX board draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, and conditions it for the CPU with a 7-phase VRM. Expansion slots include one PCI-Express 3.0 x16, and two PCI-Express 3.0 x1. Storage connectivity includes four SATA 6 Gbps ports. USB connectivity includes eight USB 3.0 ports (six on the rear panel, two via headers). Networking is care of a single gigabit Ethernet interface driven by a Realtek RTL8111GR controller. ASUS deployed the gaming-grade Crystal Audio 2 onboard audio solution, with a Realtek ALC887 6-channel HD audio CODEC, ground-layer isolation, audio-grade capacitors, and a headphones amp. The board also features a PS/2 port for legacy input devices.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by ASUS for the new B150M Expedition Motherboard, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
