MSI P7N Diamond and Platinum motherboards unveiled

Posted on Tuesday, Dec 18 2007 @ 00:10 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
MSI unveiled two new motherboards, one with the nForce 750i SLI chipset and one with the nForce 780i SLI. Both motherboards support NVIDIA's Tri SLI.

Specifications P7N Diamond
• Based on Nvidia nForce 780i SLI Chipset
• Supports Intel Core 2 Extreme/Quad/Duo Processors with FSB 1333MHz
• Supports Dual Ch. DDR2-1066/800/667
• New Circu-Pipe design
• Quad PCI Express x16 slots supports Nvidia 3-way SLI X16
(PCIe generation 2.0) • Supports eSATA
• Creative X-Fi Xtreme Audio

P7N SLI Platinum
• Based on Nvidia nForce 750i SLI Chipset
• Supports Intel Core 2 Extreme/Quad/Duo Processors with FSB 1333MHz
• Supports Dual Ch. DDR2-1066/800/667
• Triple PCI Express x16 slots supports Nvidia SLI X8 (PCIe generation 2.0)
• Supports eSATA
• 7.1 Ch. HD Audio

Highly Efficient Circu-Pipe and GreenPower Design
The MSI Circu-Pipe effectively reduces the high temperature from the chipset and MOSFET(field-effect transistor). This design improves the system stability and product life. The processor power supply of P7N series motherboards is based on four phases PWM IC and with MSI’s exclusive dual channel design; it can reach more than eight phase power quality and increase the efficiency of power conversion. Not only will the power supply become more stable, but also reduces the heat produced, especially during extreme overclocking.

POSCAP and solid capacitors
The MSI P7N series offer 100% “all made in Japan” high-quality solid capacitors. The PWM capacitors on the motherboards, recently developed by Sanyo, are an ultra small POSCAP design. The impedance values of general capacitors will differ due to the operating frequency change. Most commendable of POSCAP is that in all kinds of operating frequencies, this product can maintain low impedance characteristics. POSCAP is suitable for motherboards with high-frequency switching power supply.

45nm Processor and 3-way SLI ready!
P7N series motherboards are Intel 45nm processor and 3-way SLI ready. The 45nm Quad Core CPU support brings more benefits to multimedia and multitasking by enhancing the performance and reducing the waiting time for any kind of applications. It provides extremely high definition audio/video stream editing and offers higher performance on 3D gaming and professional graphic rendering.

Overclocking friendly features
The MSI P7N Series has overclocking-friendly features to meet the precise demands of overclockers. The motherboard is equipped with onboard LED POST that shows the boot status or warnings if necessary, the LED Detector will show if the add-on cards in the PCIe/PCI slots are connected properly. Reset the system in a second during overclocking with the onboard reset button and with the delivered M-connectors, connecting devices in the case will be easier than ever.
