MSI today introduced its mainstream Fuzion Series mainboards; the P55A Fuzion for the Intel platform and 870A Fuzion for the AMD platform.
The boards feature the same integration of military class materials. Additionally, the 870A Fuzion is the first AMD platform board capable of simultaneously operating dual NVIDIA graphics cards.
Allowing users to experience the performance upgrade and convenience of multiple graphics cards, MSI Fuzion series mainboards come with Lucidlogix's Lucid LT22102 processor and exclusive graphics card Fuzion Technology that enables parallel processing of multiple cross-brand, asymmetrical GPUs. In A-Mode and N-Mode, when coupled with dual PCI-E ?16 Gen2 expansion slots, they provide parallel operating capabilities for any two ATI or two NVIDIA graphics cards, while still supporting ATI's or NVIDIA's own unique technologies.
In addition, with the exclusive X-Mode, you can buy any brand or class of new graphics card to do multi-GPU processing with the existing graphics card in your PC to get higher performance with lower cost. It will be more economic and green than just buy a new high-end graphic card and throw away the old one. At the same time, it can take the primary graphics card as the benchmark (the graphics card installed in the first PCI-E x 16 expansion slot) and support exclusive NVIDIA or ATI technologies while possessing multiple display output capabilities.
Fuzion series mainboards all feature one 6-pin VGA power supply connector, which compared to the 24-pin power supply input of average graphics cards, is capable of providing up to 70% additional power. Even with two high-end graphics cards, you can still significantly enhance overclocking performance and operating stability.
The MSI P55A Fuzion and 870A Fuzion mainboards also feature the OC Genie 1 Second Overclocking Technology. With just one press of the OC Genie button on the mainboard, the automatic optimization of CPU, RAM, and chipset frequency and voltage settings begins. The P55A Fuzion supports the Intel Unlocked series processor, which can initiate MSI's exclusive Super Unlock technology, allowing overclocking clock rates to reach an astonishing 4GHz. Performance of the 870A Fuzion can be enhanced by up to 148% by simultaneously activating its core unlock function, MSI claims. For newbie gamers, these easy to activate performance enhancements are definitely the most intuitive and practical functions.
The MSI P55A Fuzion and 870A Fuzion mainboards both come with the latest USB3.0 and SATA 6 GB/s transfer standards.
