MSI K8N Neo 4 Platinum


MSI, the leading computer motherboard manufacturer and the top AMD platform solution provider, introduces the new cutting-edge technology, the MSI DBS (Dual Bridge System) Technology.

The application of the MSI DBS can be found on the MSI K8N Neo 4 Platinum mainboard. MSI DBS Technology supports dual PCI Express graphics card with PCI Express x16 and PCI Express x2 interface onboard. DBS technology offers expansion capability to support quad display with different model of PCI Express graphics cards. It can extend the desktop to 4 monitors.




The PCI Express X2 slot onboard is an open-ended slot for ordinary PCI Express X1, X2 add-on card or PCI Express X16 graphics card population. The major advantage of PCI Express X2 slot as second graphics interface versus PCI legacy that is 4 times higher bandwidth. And most important of all, the bandwidth of PCI Express X2 is point-to-point and exclusive for single add-on device. Bandwidth of PCI bus is shared by every PCI devices. When more devices are installed, there is less bandwidth left for sharing, but more interruptions.
