AMD’s 300 series has been overlooked by a lot of people. Their Fury series really took all of the spotlight, but not everyone has that much money to spend on a graphics card. If you are an AMD fan the 300 series still does have a lot to offer. Today we will be taking a look at a R9 380 graphics card, which is more or less a rebranded R9 285. The card is based on the 28nm process and features 1792 stream processors, 32 ROPs, 112 TMUs. On the review block today is the MSI R9 380 Gaming 4G graphics card. MSI has given this card their “Gaming” treatment, which we are big fans of. So you have the Twin Frozr V cooling solution, a factory overclock, fans that turn off when you are not gaming, and of course the MSI Gaming styling on the card itself. Let’s take a look and see what this card is all about!
MSI has been showing off the motherboard you see below on their Facebook pages, the board in the Z170A XPOWER Gaming Titanium Edition. I have to say it is one of the best Z170 motherboards we have seen! This motherboard is made to support Intel’s upcoming Skylake desktop processors.
MSI has posted photos of their upcoming Z170 Gaming M series motherboards on Facebook. This series is made up of the Z170A Gaming M5, the Z170A Gaming M7, and the Z170A Gaming M9 ACK. We have to point out that the “M” does not mean these boards are micro-ATX board, but rather to let you know these are MSI Gaming products. MSI’s competitors have imitated the naming scheme they used on their Z97 motherboards.
MSI has released a picture of their upcoming Z170 Krait Gaming Motherboard. This black and white themed motherboard is designed for PC builds with two graphics cards. The black and white design is not only on the heatsinks but also on the ports as well as even on the board itself. It gives the board a very unique look.
MSI, world leading in motherboard technology, announces the most powerful X99 gaming solution, the X99A GODLIKE GAMING motherboard. Featuring Killer DoubleShot-X3 Pro, Turbo M.2 connectivity, 2X Faster USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C and a whole new gaming oriented LED feature, MYSTIC LIGHT, the X99A GODLIKE GAMING is the most powerful motherboard to serve you in battle.
This is the biggest leak that we’ve seen for the Radeon 300 series! MSI’s entire 300 series of graphics cards have been leaked to the web, with full specifications and photos! This gives us a run-down of the entire Radeon 300 series from AMD.
The first photos of MSI’s upcoming flagship Radeon Fury card have been leaked to the web. Interestingly they show a little bit of a different design than the previous renders of the card we’ve seen before. The edges of the card are actually rounder in this render and I have to say it does make the card look better.
MSI was showing their prototype AX24 all-in-one PC, which is basically a PC built into the back of an LCD screen. We have seen this from all-in-ones before, but what was more interesting was the external graphics card dock on the back of the display. This has to be one of the best and most compact implementations of an external graphics card dock that we have seen.
We have seen custom SLI bridges from the likes of NVIDIA, ASUS and EVGA and it looks like MSI is getting in on the party now too. At Computex they were showing off their new GAMING SLI Bridges. These SLI Bridges are made to work with NVIDIA’s 900 series graphics cards and of course are designed to match MSI’s GAMING series graphics cards and motherboards.
MSI is showing off two new motherboards from their upcoming third-generation “GAMING” motherboard series at Computex. These motherboards include the Z170A-G45 Gaming and the X99A-GODLIKE Gaming. It looks like MSI is moving away from the “3/5/7/9″ naming as Gigabyte is copying it.
