Today, MSI reported the availability of the Z87i Gaming AC motherboard and GTX 760 Gaming ITX graphics card which is offering a number of gaming characteristics in the little scaled down ITX structure component.
As per the report issued by Expreview, MSI is looking forward eagerly to its Gaming Series-which will include the branded cases and cooling solutions. MSI is not entering the market for cases for the first time but it must be kept in mind that the previous MSI cases weren’t able to get their strong hold in the market and hadn’t made quite a mark.
It looks like photos of the PCB for MSI’s upcoming Radeon R9 290X Lighting have been leaked. Looking at the details of the PCB we can see that the Radeon R9 290X will be an absolute powerhouse and will may put to rest all of the complaints that R9 290X reference designs do not take full advantage of the Hawaii XT core.
MSI is going to introduce two new components into this series; the Z87I GAMING AC and GTX 760 GAMING OC ITX. Z87I GAMING AC from this series is the mini-ITX motherboard which brings forth a perfect gaming platform. The motherboard has been equipped with the Intel Z87 chipset and comes along with MSI’s Military Class components.
NVIDIA’s GeForce 700 series of cards are made up of the GTX 760, GTX 770 and GTX 780. The GTX 770 is actually based on the same GPU as the GeForce GTX 680. It makes use of the 28nm GK104 chip. This chip features 8 streaming multiprocessors (SMX units), 1536 stream processors, 1218 texture units and 32 ROPs. The GTX 770 is clocked a little higher than the GTX 680 with a 1049 MHz core clock and a boost clock of 1085 MHz. The memory is also higher at 7010 MHz (effective). With these improvements and since many companies are already used to working with the GK104 chip this should make for better performance and a more powerful card. Today we are taking a look at a GTX 770 from MSI. It is their GTX 770 Twin Frozr Gaming OC Edition which features MSI’s own Twin Frozr IV cooling solution, Military Class III components and 3 different operating modes (silent, gaming & OC). Read on to see if this is the GTX 770 for you.
AMD Radeon R9 280X, Radeon R9 270X, and many different AMD R7 series card from several different AMD AIC partners have been unveiled.

Not that long ago MSI released BIOS updates for their X79 motherboards to support Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge-E processors. Since that time 7 CPU-based word records have been broken by overclockers using MSI X79 motherboards.
We already know that most of AMD’s R9 and R7 series cards will be available October 8th so it is no surprise that we are going to start seeing non-reference cards pop up from AMD’s AIB partners. MSI posted this a few days ago on their Facebook page, “AMD has just announced their new GPU architecture, MSI is ready, are you?
