MSI has launched its C236A and C236M motherboards, intended for workstation, entry server, and datacenter use. In other words: they're high-end.
Both boards support Intel's Xeon E3 v5 series CPUs and are aimed squarely at multi-GPU users, specifically Quadro and FirePro. You can see this reflected partly in the spatial design of the boards, which look to nicely accommodate multiple GPUs, as well as the Steel Armor reinforced PCI-e slots which are said to handle even the heaviest cards just fine.
Other features include DDR4 Boost, support for Turbo M.2, Turbo U.2 and SATA Express storage, USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C connectors, Military Class 4 components, Audio Boost, Intel Gigabit LAN, and Click BIOS 5.
Full specifications are yet to come, as are pricing details.
