When you hear the words Big Bang many things come to mind. If you are between the ages of 9-14 you might start laughing (I know I still do), older than that you might have thoughts of galaxies and stars. If you are a computer enthusiast (pronounce that Geek) then you will probably think about MSI and their new Hydra sporting motherboards.
Well MSI is finally releasing one of the Big Bang Series. Unfortunately this one will be without Hydra. The new Hydra-Less board will be called the Trinergy and will have some nice consolations to the lack of the Hydra Chip.
The LGA 1156 board will have support for 4 DDR3 2133 Slots, Active Phase Switching, SuperPipe cooling, a PCI-e x1 Quantum Wave Audio card, dual GbE and true 3 way x16 SLI and Crossfire support. This last one is through the use of an NF200 chip to provide the extra PCI-e lanes.
There is no word on pricing yet and of course no word on when we might see a Hydra version yet. Still this looks like an interesting board to be sure and one that will have the SLI/Crossfire crowd excited about the P55/Lynnfield.
