Watch Now: Video Interview With MSI at Computex 2013

Our international teams are hard at work covering Computex 2013 in Taipei, Taiwan. We recently had the chance to sit down with MSI's Charles Chiang, Corporate Executive VP & GM Desktop Platform Solutions Business Unit, for his thoughts on the industry and how MSI fits into the overall industry. We also ask for his thoughts on Intel's Haswell as well as upcoming offerings from AMD. Check out the video below for all the info:

Also don't forget to check out our first roundup of the initial Haswell Z87 motherboards here.

Marcus Yam served as Tom's Hardware News Director during 2008-2014. He entered tech media in the late 90s and fondly remembers the days when an overclocked Celeron 300A and Voodoo2 SLI comprised a gaming rig with the ultimate street cred.

    "200 million gamers world wide, 120 million in China alone" that leaves the rest of the world 80million? wow, I didn't realize that the American/Europe gaming market was that small, I mean, other Asian places like Korea, India, Japan, plus the rest of the Americas must have a significant number of gamers too... leaving what? only 20-40million between US and Europe?

    maybe this is only PC gamers?

    This board looks sick... too bad I NEED, yes need, a blue themed motherboard... like the good old days of the last few years... til now. :(
    I'd like to ask the GB, ASUS, and MSI morons why they decided on these horrible and hideous new colour schemes for their motherboards. I mean, bright orange and green? And you put those colours on almost every Z87 board over $150? Someone needs to get shot. I'll keep my P8P67 blue themed EVO, until these motherboard designers get their shit together.

    This interview was kind of interesting. He actually knew one of his motherboards won a Toms Hardware award. He does make a good point about synergy. Probably the strongest trait for ASUS and MSI laptops is they have the resources to do it all in house. ASUS and MSI are also not known for crap motherboards and video cards.

    Damn right you can't compete with Asus, The new Asus Maximus 6 extreme is so damn awesome. The on the fly bus, voltage and multi external controller. Plus the new Ram Bus feature to turn some of your system ram into SSD killing speeds. Now I think getting 2800Mhz 16-32GB of ram so I can turn it into a Ram drive is so damn OP!
    Good luck MSI
    Ram drive alone is the only reason i would really consitter to upgrade my Maximus 4 extreme, 2600k @ 5.1Ghz to a 4770k setup. Motherboards are so damn a the back bone. Don't be cheap people when overclocking!
