It looks like AMD is prepping a new lower-end graphics cards in their Radeon 7000 series. User Toppc from Coolaler forums has leaked images and well as benchmarks of a Radeon HD 7730 from MSI. Not much is known about the specifications of the card just yet, but we do know the card is clocked at 800 MHz core and 1125 MHz memory clock. We would assume it is also running 1 GB of GDDR5 memory. No official word on what core this card is running, our guess is a cut down version of either the Bonaire XT chip or Cape Verde chip.
MSI has been using Facebook to give us a little glimpse of their upcoming Haswell motherboards. Just last week they released a shot of their Z87 XPower motherboard, which has a 32-phase VRM! Today they have released another shot of a different board, the Z87 MPower MAX which features MSI’s Military Class 4 components.
Just last week we got our first look at MSI’s upcoming Big Bang Z87 XPower Motherboard. MSI showed a few photos and a teaser video, which did not show all that much. Today on MSI’s UK Facebook page they have released the photo you see below. The photo shows some of the components that are going to be used on this new board as part of their Military Class 4 components. These include Super Ferrite Chokes, black solid state capacitors, and a total of 32 VRM power phases!
MSI’s Gaming Series of products is mainly made up of motherboards and video cards, but MSI has just added to that as they have launched the AG2712 27-inch All-in-One Gaming PC. MSI is touting the AG2712 as “the world’s first 27-inch Gaming All-in-One PC”. The system is based of mobile NVIDIA and Intel hardware. It is powered by an Intel Ivy Bridge Mobile Core i7 3630QM processor and an a NVIDIA GTX 670MX graphics card.
Intel’s expected launch of Haswell keeps on getting closer and closer and motherboard manufacturers are gearing up for it as they are working on socket LGA1150 motherboards for the new platform. MSI is one such manufacturer and they are teasing their new flagship motherboard that directly targets enthusiasts and overclockers. This motherboard is based off of Intel’s Z87 Express chipset and falls in MSI’s Big Bang series bearing the name Z87 XPower.
Today is the release day for AMD’s latest graphics card the Radeon HD 7790. MSI has released their own version of the card. MSI has two versions of the card (R7790-1GD5/OC & R7790-1GD5). Let’s concentrate on the R7790-1GD5/OC because the other one is just the reference design. The R7790-1GD5/OC card is slightly overclocked at 1050MHZ core and has 1GB of GDDR5 running at 6000MHz effective.
MSI has launched a new Mini PC in their Wind Box DC110. This Mini PC is powered by an Intel Celeron 847 dual core 1.1GHz processor, Intel HD graphics, and 2GB of DDR 1333MHz memory with the option to install up to 4GB. As far as storage and connectivity goes you have a 320GB hard drive, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, HDMI, VGA, 4x USB ports, Ethernet, line out and optical audio out.
While we had news of MSI’s Z87A Gaming Motherboard prototype yesterday, today we see that they have released an all new gaming motherboard line with three Intel Z77 motherboards. All of the boards feature network chips from KillerNIC, which of course will ensure lower ping times during games. They are feature a gaming color scheme, which seems to me a metallic red and black. These new boards are to be positioned with their current lineup of Z77 motherboards, but expect a higher price point.
We have another look at an upcoming Z87 motherboard, this time it is from MSI. They were showing an early prototype of the Z87A Gaming Series motherboard. MSI has yet to really design the final color scheme, heatsinks, and PCB color, but most of the development of the board is done.
Many companies we cover here at ThinkComputers launch products in Japan ahead of a worldwide or US release or even solely in Japan. That is the case with MSI and their new low-cost GeForce GTX 680 Lightning L Graphics Card. The card features a dual fan design and dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort connections. It has official clock speeds of 1019 MHz / 1084 MHz GPU Boost, which makes it faster than a GTX 680 reference card (1006 MHz / 1058 MHz), but slower than the original MSI GeForce GTX 680 Lightning (1110 MHz / 1176 MHz).
