MSI shows off Wind desktop PC

Posted on Wednesday, May 28 2008 @ 23:39:40 CEST by

Scantily clad MSI babes were showing off the MSI Wind desktop computer, TweakTown has some coverage of the event. The site writes the models they saw in Taipei used the Intel Atom CPU, 1GB DDR2 533MHz memory, 160GB Serial ATA HDD, Gigabit Ethernet, a DVD combo drive and a 65W power adapter.

The systems feature the MSI MS-7314 micro-ATX Wind Board motherboards which are passively cooled.
MSI WIND PC desktops are powered by their Micro-ATX based MS-7314 Wind Board motherboard which is passively cooled with a large aluminum heatsink covering the Northbridge and CPU. The board is nothing special with normal capacitors (not Japanese made solid capacitors), two DIMM slots for a total of 2GB memory in dual channel mode, two SATA-II ports for HDD and DVD combo drive, one PCI slot which could be used for an old sound card or TV tuner and finally an IDE port which could be used for an old hard disk drive for additional storage space.
MSI claims these systems consume no more than 35W and demonstrated they can run 720p video. Tweaktown said 720p was pretty smooth for the most part, they also asked about 1080p video but MSI said the current Wind PCs aren't powerful enough to achieve that job.
