MSI gave us a rundown of all its offerings at Computex 2012. Check them all out in our coverage below:
Motherboards for AMD Trinity (socket FM2):
A85-XA-G65: 4 slot DDR-1866 (max 32 GB), 2 slot PCIe x16 2.0 (SLI and CrossFire compatibility), 4 USB 3.0 connectors, 8 SATA 6 Gbps connectors. Military Class III, OC Genie III, ClickBIOS II.
A85IA-E53: Motherboard for HTPC (it's a mini-ITX) with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, chipset A75, 2 slot DDR3-1866 (max 16 GB), 1 slot PCIe 2.0 x16, 4 USB 3.0, 4 SATA 6 Gbps.
A55M-P33 (F2): chipset A55
A85MA-E35: chipset A75
Motherboard for Intel processors:
Z77 MPower: socket LGA 1155, 16 PWM phases, 4 slot DDR3 (2800 Mhz max in OC, 32 GB). The mainboard have a 8 pin connectors for CPU and 6 pin connectors for VGA. There are 3 slot PCI Express 3.0 x16. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Military Class III components. Availability: July.
X79 MPower: socket LGA 2011, 8 slot DDR3 max 2400 MHz and 128 GB, 3 slot PCIe 3.0, 2 slot PCIe 2.0 x16. Six USB 3.0, Six SATA 6 Gbps. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, Military Class III components. Availability: July.
Z77IA-E53: mini-ITX, LGA 1155, 2 slot DDR3, 1 slot PCIe 3.0 x16, 4 USB 3.0, 2 SATA 6 Gbps. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ClickBIOS II, OC Genie II. Availability: August
GTX 680 Lightning: $549 dollars. There's a button to disable all the protections (OCP, APS, etc) to improve overclock. GPU Reactor, an add-on to improve the capacity of manage currents. It is essentially an add-on PCB that holds a battery of tantalum capacitors, which further conditions power for the GPU.
MSI create a fan-module that you can apply on R7770 or R7750 Power Edition to improve cooling. If you stack two fan you’ll improve GPU cooling; if you slide the whole heatsink you will have a solution with 2 fans to improve the air flow on VRM and other components.
GTX 670 Power Edition with Twin Frozr IV, 2 PWM fans (8 cm), nickel-plated copper base. Core: 1019 MHz; GPU Boost: 1079MHz, Memory: 6008 MHz
The external graphics card that you connect to a laptop through Thunderbolt connection.
That's going to end well, especially for newbies.
Do they even make 16GB sticks of RAM, because you'd need 8?
I hope to read more about this later.
Ya gots ta be waiting 4 da Xtreme Edition!!!!
