MSI has used the CES 2010 held in Las Vegas last week to demonstrate an innovative motherboard, the Big Bang Fuzion. It combines a conventional Intel P55 chipset with a chip Lucid Hydra. If the first supports AMD CrossFire Technology and NVIDIA SLI, to combine two identical graphics cards, the second allows for her to combine different graphics chips.
It is therefore possible to combine two different ATI graphics cards, Radeon HD 4850 and Radeon HD 5870 for example, or two graphics cards NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 and GeForce GTX 285. Most importantly, it is possible to combine two graphics cards of different designers, an ATI Radeon HD 4870 with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 for example.
The manufacturer has also focused on overclocking. The motherboard for this purpose the function of dynamic overclocking OC engineering, control panel and external OC Dashboard capacitors 100% Hi-c surmounted by a cooling system Superpipe. A dedicated sound card Quantum Wave, supporting technology Creative EAX Advanced HD 5.0 and THX TruStudio PC complete equipment for players.
We finally found a socket LGA 1156, allowing an Intel Core i5 750, Core i7 860 and Core i7 870, for example, four slots for DDR3 memory at 2300 MHz, three PCI Express x16 slots, ten connectors Serial ATA 3 Gbps, two eSATA connectors, two Gigabit Ethernet connectors, Firewire and USB.
The Big Bang MSI Fuzion, decidedly upscale, will be launched in the United States in the coming days retail price of $ 390.
