Asus has added a new product under its Expedition brand, the new B150M Expedition mATX motherboard. Like the other Expedition branded products from the company, the new motherboard is mainly targeted at gaming iCafes that have become really popular in China.
The EX-B150M-V5 D3 motherboard has been engineered with non-stop durability to prevent damage from moisture, corrosion and overvoltages – for immense longevity. Like other Expedition products, the B150M Expedition has been tested to the limits, with 144 hours of diskless-system tests and extensive checks for compatibility with top games and over 100 gaming peripherals. The motherboard comes equipped with a premium 30-micron-thick gold-plated LAN connector, 15-micron-thick gold-plated PCIe x 16 port, USBGuard technology with 120% higher overvoltage protection, anti-theft memory, and 5X Protection II.
In the audio department, the B150M Expedition board utilizes a Realtek ALC887 6-channel audio CODEC with Crystal Audio 2 technology, audio amplifier, audio shielding, De-pop circuit, and premium Japanese-made audio capacitors. For networking, the board offers a single gigabit Ethernet that is driven by a Realtek RTL8111GR controller. It includes 2 DIMM slots, with support for up to 32GB DDR3 1866 (O.C.)/1600/1333 MHz Non-ECC un-buffered memory. Back I/O ports include 1 PS/2 port, 1 DVI-D, 1 LAN (RJ45), 4 USB 3.0 Type-A, 4 USB 2.0, and 3 audio jack(s).
