MSI teased us with a few tidbits on that awesome Big Bang mainboard at the end of September, and I really want one. MSI has issued a new press release that gives more details on the mainboard and promises that it will launch soon, but MSI gives no specific date for the board to hit market.
The mainboard is an Intel P55 platform board and features its own sound riser card with Quantum Wave technology. The sound card promises THX TruStudio PC sound and support for Creative EAX Advanced HD 5.0 sound. The board is powered by the NVIDIA nForce 200 SLI processor allowing the use of three graphics cards in the system.
Other features of the board include 100% Hi-c capacitors and it comes with an external OC dashboard and MSI OC Genie OC chip. The board uses the Lucid HYDRA chip that allows for the support for different brands and models of GPUs in the same system. That is certainly the best feature of the board. I hope MSI doesn’t go crazy with the price on this thing, it will be one of the most popular enthusiast boards on the market if priced right.
