MSI 790GX motherboard lineup unveiled

Posted on Thursday, August 07 2008 @ 15:32:57 CEST by


MSI rolled out three motherboards based on the new AMD 790GX chipset + SB750 southbridge.
MSI announces its latest AMD mainboard series: MSI DKA790GX. This series mainboards is equipped with AMD’s 790GX/SB750 chipsets which provide full HD, best-in-class 3D graphics performance, enhanced scalability, and “Rock-Solid Stability” for mainstream gaming, multimedia and commercial PC systems. This solution introduces the new “Advanced Clock Calibration” technology. In the BIOS of MSI DKA790GX or AMD Overdrive software, the user can enable this ACC option to improve communications with the Black Edition Phenom CPU which ehances the maximum overclocking performance. On these mainboard series MSI has also implemented its 3-in-1 MOSFET chip: DrMOS. In addition, MSI DKA790GX series mainboard comes with MSI Flat Circu-Pipe for extreme cooling, 5 phases PWM with DrMOS support for 140W CPU and high performance IGP overclocking. The MSI DKA790GX Platinum mainboard is equipped with a special overclocking feature; it comes with 3 new enlightened easy buttons for clear CMOS, reset and power. MSI offers 3 790GX mainboard models: MSI DKA790GX Platinum, MSI DKA790GX and MSI KA790GX. All 3 mainboards are designed to meet the needs of passionate gamers and high-end multimedia enthusiasts. As a special bundle all 3 mainboards come with harddisk back-up software.

(Hybrid) CrossFireX ready!
MSI DKA790GX series mainboards have a build-in Radeon HD 3300 GPU core, supporting DirectX® 10 and incorporates dual display, integrated DVI, HDMI, and VGA Port providing realistic and playable frame rates in the latest game titles. MSI DKA790GX Platinum is featured with an additional 1Gbit DDR3 1333MHz IGP Boost Memory (SidePort) to accelerate onboard VGA 3D performance up to 15%. Besides onboard VGA, MSI DKA790GX series support Hybrid CrossFireX technology, which boosts the 3D performance by enabling the chipset’s integrated graphics processor and a discrete GPU to operate simultaneously with combined output to a single display, resulting in fast frame rates. For the true gamers, MSI DKA790GX series also supports CrossFireX technology; combine two MSI R4870 or R4850 graphics cards and the 3D gaming resolutions will have a more detailed DirectX10.1 effects and the 3D frame rate is lifted to another, much higher level.

MSI DrMOS 3-in-1 chip
MSI DKA790GX mainboards has onboard high-quality solid capacitors that are made in Japan. These capacitors with low impedance and high ripple current ensure a better filtering effect. Another exclusive feature on MSI DKA790GX series products are the PWM MOSFETS on the mainboards, based on MSI’s DrMOS server-class component chip in which the top and bottom MOSFET are integrated with the Driver IC. This results in a better power efficiency, low spike noise and high response speed characteristics. Therefore, MSI DrMOS is best used in combination with a high-frequency switching power supply to enable extreme overclocking.

Flat Circu-Pipe and 5 phases PWM with 140W CPU support!
MSI DKA790GX Platinum has an exceptional flat circu-pipe solution with a circular shape and bigger sink surface. The flat design of the heat-pipe is enhancing the heat dissipation performance with 20%. MSI DKA790GX CPU’s power supply has a 5 phase PWM design, which can support a 140W CPU. As result, the power supply becomes more stable and reduces the produced heat, especially during overclocking.
