MSI 890FX-GD70 features six PCI Express x16 slots

Posted on Friday, December 11 2009 @ 23:26:35 CET by

The Tech Report found some photos of MSI's upcoming 890FX-GD70 motherboard at Coolaler and reports this AMD-based motherboard features a whopping six PCI Express x16 slots. The motherboard also features two USB 3.0 ports but has no SATA 6Gbps.
MSI has stamped the motherboard with the model number 890FX-GD70, suggesting that AMD will brand its future chipset 890FX—no surprise, since the 790FX fills in as the chipmaker's current high-end enthusiast chipset. This new board has a somewhat unusual layout: the north bridge sits right below the CPU's power regulation circuitry under one giant heatsink emblazoned with MSI's DrMOS logo.

More unusual still, the 890FX-GD70 has a whopping six PCI Express x16 slots, with a single, lonely 32-bit PCI slot sandwiched between the last two. We doubt every single slot has a full 16 lanes of PCIe connectivity, but since different PCIe widths are all cross-compatible, these slots should be able to accommodate any PCIe card users care to chuck into them.
