The best possible sound quality with USB Audio Power
High quality USB audio devices, such as external DACs, suffer from a weak USB power delivery, highly impacting sound quality. Only MSI USB Audio Power continues to deliver 5V to the USB ports on motherboards, greatly improving sound quality. The USB Audio Power design, which powers all the USB ports independently, offers more stable power and audio signals than traditional solutions. This results in much clearer sound effects with reduced noise, along with improved power stability for the users' extra devices, enjoying an enriched sound presentation.
Get ready for the future with Mantle and TrueAudio
Gain access to the latest technology with the MSI A88XI AC to get a sublime sound experience and more fluid gameplay through more FPS. Mantle helps to achieve better frame rates through the use of an exclusive developed API by AMD. AMD TrueAudio (Kaveri and newer) technology uses the GPU to perform audio calculations. It delivers unprecedented levels of acoustic fidelity and immersion.
