MSI has been working together with Skype to deliver Skype functions in its new Intel P35 based motherboards:
The new functions allow both traditional telephone and Internet phone (Skype) capabilities together on the new motherboard, the sources explained.
MSI's P35 Platinum motherboard has a built-in SkyTel module card paired with Realtek's ALC880T HD audio codec to enable a standard telephone to be connected to the PC. This can be used for Skype calls as well as traditional telephone calls. The traditional phone can still operate while the system is shut off, noted sources at MSI.
