MSI Rolls Out 890FXA-GD70 and AMD 800 Series Motherboards
MSI unveiled its 890FXA-GD70 and AMD 800 series mainboards. 890FXA-GD70 features AMD's latest SB850 Southbridge chipset support and server-grade, Military Class specifications. Also included is the OC Genie intelligent overclocking utility, designed by MSI especially for the AMD platform, and the Unlock CPU Core function.
The 890FXA-GD70 (check the price at Amazon) also fully supports the latest generation USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s transfer technologies. In addition, the environmentally conscious and economical DrMOS design is also included (on selected models only).
The MSI 890FXA-GD70 and AMD 800 series mainboards (including 890GX/880G/870) all fully support the Unlock CPU Core function, not only boosting CPU performance, but also saving money by letting you buy a triple-core CPU instead of a quad-core one. BIOS updates for the next generation AMD Phenom II X6 CPU can also be fully supported.
The MSI 890FXA-GD70 and AMD 800 series mainboards features server-grade "Military Class" components. Certified by the Department of Defense, these components ensure that you are using the highest grade components to power your board. Hi-c CAP (highly-conductive polymer capacitor), Solid CAP (solid capacitor), and Icy Choke (low-temperature inductors) enhance product lifespan, heat-resistance, and stability.
To meet the overclocking requirements of gamers, the MSI 890FXA-GD70 and AMD 800 series mainboards have MSI's proprietary OC Genie automatic overclocking utility built in. Consumers don't need a deep knowledge of computing concepts and configurations. By utilizing the BIOS interface to allow automatic adjustment of the CPU clock, CPU performance may increase by 26% or probably more, MSI claims.
In a few easy steps, Unlock CPU Core can unleash CPU's hidden cores. When unlocking 2 cores to 4 cores, CPU performance increases by over 104%, MSI promises.
