MSI will also reveal two new motherboards at Gamescom. First up is the 970A GAMING PRO CARBON, a new motherboard for the AMD platform.
Premiered on Gamescom, MSI adds a new model to the CARBON motherboard family, the MSI 970A GAMING PRO CARBON, based on the AMD AM3+ chipset. As the first AMD based MSI CARBON model, this motherboard has been built from the ground up with a new design on the inside and outside. It offers Mystic Light RGB lights, onboard M.2, Audio Boost 3, GAMING LAN and a plethora of other gameplay enhancing features. This motherboard has newly designed heatsinks, complemented by highlights on the PCB that mark the 970A GAMING PRO CARBON as a truly outstanding AMD GAMING motherboard.
High Speed Data Transfer
The MSI 970A GAMING PRO CARBON motherboard supports the latest high performance M.2 SSDs with support for NVMe. It also offers a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and Type-C interface for the most convenient and fastest mobile storage solutions.
Perfect for gamers who love customization
One of the great features of the 970A GAMING PRO CARBON motherboard is its Mystic Light RGB LED feature, supporting up to 16.8 million colors and 16 LED effects to style your rig in any way possible. You can now even do it simply through WIFI by using your smartphone as you skip through all the colors. Mystic Light Extension, a dedicated pin header for 4-pin RGB-strip & lighting control, extends your style to everything.
Next is the X99A SLI, an updated version of last year's X99A SLI PLUS with Military Clas 5 components:
Built on the success of MSI’s X99A SLI PLUS a new model joins the MSI X99 family, the X99A SLI. Honoring its brother, the X99A SLI is designed completely in black. It also features a sturdy IO cover to protect the board and connected devices against EMI, while adding to the looks. Heavy plated heatsinks ensure your system runs cool & efficient and can handle anything for longer periods of use.
Besides a new PCB design built with Military Class 5 components, the X99A SLI comes onboard Turbo U.2 and Turbo M.2 to support NVMe SSDs available in the market today, allowing transfer speeds up to 2400 MB/s using a single drive. A USB Type-C option allows for all the performance benefits from USB 3.1 Gen2 combined with the convenience of the USB Type-C connector.
