MSI's Next Gen Motherboards
We're very restricted as to what information we can give out as these products are still under NDA. However, we do have a few pictures to show you just what you can expect with the next generation of motherboards from MSI.
MSI Gaming ITX
First up we've got the ITX motherboard. We love the heatsink design on this, and having the Gaming Series logo on a board this small definitely adds character to it. The audio chip is on the opposite side of the motherboard as to where we'd normally see it. This makes for an interesting I/O.
MSI Gaming 3
As we were already award, MSI are following a different naming system to their previous motherboards. Now we start with 'Gaming 3' and for this range we've seen up to 'Gaming 9'. The Gaming Series badge again looks very good here. The top heatsinks have been redesigned too to be black with red accents on each side. Other than this, the board looks almost identical to the previous Z87-G45 Gaming.
MSI Gaming 5, 7 & 9
The Gaming 5, 7 & 9 come with a different heatsink design to the Gaming 3. The heatsinks here still have red accents, although this time they're built in parts of the heatsink, rather than just accents on the side. The southbridge heatsink again incorporates the Gaming Series logo. The Gaming 9 motherboard comes with shielding over the audio tracers and circuitry which suggests a more advanced audio options on this board. Discuss in the OC3D Forums
