MSI today announces the availability of the new MSI Intel 7 Series mainboards for the LGA1155 socket. The new Intel Z77, H77 and B75 chipset based mainboards support both 2nd Generation Sandy Bridge CPUs as well as the upcoming 3rd Generation Ivy Bridge CPUs. Built on this basis of MSI’s military class Quality components, the MSI Intel 7 series mainboards have MSI’s overclocking features to match with OC Genie II. MSI claims their OC Genie II enhances CPU, Memory, Hard drive and GPU performance, with the latter being achieved through the use of Lucid Virtu MVP. MSI includes Active Phase Switching (APS) and DrMOS II to help save power.
Military Class III Power and power saving - MSI’s exemplary Military Class III Components honor the “Top Quality and Stability” slogan. DrMOS II (DriverMOSFET) is the latest edition to the Military Class family and enhances efficiency, reduces temperatures and provides Thermal Protection for extreme overclocking scenarios. The Hi-C CAP is an extremely efficient Tantalum based capacitor with a Nobel-prize winning automatic recovery function and Super Ferrite Choke (SFC) provides 30% more power at 10% higher efficiency compared to chokes used on other brand motherboards. The Japanese made Solid Capacitors provide a long lifetime under gaming loads compared to older liquid capacitors. All MSI Military Class III mainboard components have passed the stringent tests of the U.S. Department of Defense MIL-STD-810G deserving its name Military Class III components.
Smoothest system experience - MSI OC Genie II is world’s easiest overclocking technique and allows a complete performance overhaul with a simple push of a button. On the MSI’s Z77, H77 and B75 series mainboards this leads to the ultimate performance experience. Pushing the OC Genie Button will push the CPU to 4.2 GHz for 18% better performance, overlock the system memory to 1866 MHz, speed ups hard-disk performance up to 4,5 times in combination with Intel ISRT SSD Caching Technology and now exclusively upgrades the performance of your Graphics card! My OC Genie is a new feature that allows end-users to customize their OC Genie II experience through MSI’s unique ClickBIOS II interface. ClickBIOS II has received unanimous praise from worldwide media for its intuitive interface, design and availability as both an UEFI BIOS interface and Windows application. With the forward looking ClickBIOS II interface, MSI is ready for Windows 8 Certification.
Advanced connectivity - MSI Z77, H77 and B75 series mainboards are equiped with an advanced integrated USB 3.0 controller which offers greatly improved transfer speeds versus 3rd party controllers. The MSI Z77A-GD80 will also rock the market as the first announced mainboard with Intel Thunderbolt support. With up to 10 Gbps of bandwidth and integrated power delivery it allows connectivity to a wide range of devices like high-res displays and high capacity external storage devices. With the MSI Z77A-GD80 with Thunderbolt you can satisfy the needs of any workstation or video editing storage bandwidth requirement.
Unprecedented USB3 Performance - Peripheral performance is brought to a new level on the MSI Z77A-GD65 thanks to the new Integrated USB 3.0 controller. USB 3.0 devices attached to the MSI Z77A-GD65 can perform up to 77% better than motherboards equipped with a third party USB controller. The MSI Z77A-GD65 Supports the new USB Attached SCSI Protocol, which is required for Windows 8 Certification.
Maximized Compatibly -MSI Intel Z77, H77 and B75 series mainboards support the new PCI Express Gen3 standard to deliver up to 32 GB/s of bandwidth to PCI Express cards. With this bandwidth you can enjoy GPU performance boosts and massive amounts of storage bandwidth for PCI Express based storage controllers. Memory on the MSI Intel Z77, H77 and B75 series mainboards support frequencies up to DDR3-2933 MHz.
High Fidelity multimedia - The MSI Z77, H77 and B75 series mainboards have built-in THX TruStudio Pro surround sound technology that enables the best audio quality, allowing you to have the most realistic dynamic sound field effects when watching Blu-Ray movies or playing games. MSI’s Z77 series mainboards also support LucidLogix Virtu MVP GPU virtualization technology. This allows MSI’s Z77 mainboards to dynamically switch between the built-in graphics of the CPU and a discrete graphics card for the most efficient processing. VirtuMVP also enables HyperFormance mode which combines the processing power of both Integrated and discrete graphics to boost your performance to new levels.
