Asustek launches H81 series motherboards based on Intel H81 chipset
Press release; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 20 August 2013]

Asustek Computer has announced six new entry-level motherboards based on the Intel H81 chipset in ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX form factors. Designed for fourth-generation Intel Core processors, the Asustek H81 series features Asus 5X Protection technology for reliability and is available in a range of specifications that cater for a variety of PC needs.

The H81 series comprises the H81-Plus ATX motherboard; the H81M-Plus, H81M-A, H81M-C and H81M-E Micro-ATX motherboards; and the H81I-Plus Mini-ITX motherboard. All models feature two DDR3 (1600MHz) DIMM slots for up to 16GB RAM, one PCI-Express x16 slot and two SATA 6Gbit/s ports. All models also include the latest Asustek UEFI BIOS, Realtek 7.1 audio and USB 3.0 with USB 3.0 Boost technology for data transfer rates up to 1.7 times faster than ordinary USB 3.0 with industry-standard UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) devices.

The Asus H81-Plus, H81M-Plus, H81M-A and H81M-E motherboards feature Asus 5X Protection technology for reliable, long-term computing, the vendor said. DIGI+ VRM digital voltage regulation enhances system stability, while resettable fuses protect I/O ports and DIMM slots from short circuits and voltage spikes. Electrostatic-discharge (ESD) guards also protect sensitive components from electromagnetic interference. 5X Protection is capped by chromium-plated stainless steel I/O ports that resist corrosion and last up to three times longer than standard ports, the vendor added.
