Designed for the Extreme Gamers: MSI Big Bang Mainboards in Explained


(Taipei-Taiwan) CeBIT 2010, the festive event for global IT makers, will be held during March 2-March 6 in Hannover, Germany. At the event, world-leading mainboard and graphic card maker ,MSI, will display a wide range of novel technologies and products, particularly the Big Bang mainboards tailored for extreme gamers. The series is conceptualized according to the Big Bang of the universe to symbolize the unique and unrivalled nature of these mainboards. The Big Bang-Trinergy and Big Bang-Fuzion that have been launched are equipped with the Intel P55 chipset and various technologies exclusive from MSI for hardcore gamers to fully experience the vivid video and audio effects and the life-like details of games. At the exhibition, MSI will also exhibit the Big Bang-XPower mainboard equipped with the Intel X58 chipset supporting the latest Intel 32nm 6-core CPUs, which is the only choice for power users to build a premium gaming platform.


Full Support of Multi-GPUs Processing Technology


To enhance picture quality and smoothness for 3D games, the Big Bang series is equipped with the full support of multi-GPUs processing technology to fulfill the true demands of users better than the Intel P55 platforms from other makers. For example, the Big Bang-Trinergy is equipped with the integrated NVIDIA nForce 200 GPU to provide full support for 3-way NVIDIA SLI, making it the first choice of power users requiring extreme performance.


The Big Bang-Fuzion is equipped with the unique Hydra Technology for power users to use either ATI or Nvidia graphic cards or their combinations at will, making it the best solution for the most flexible upgradability of graphic cards.




Military Class Components for Ultimate Stability


Regarding the parts that power users concern most, the Big Bang series uses a wide range of military class components, including the solid state capacitor (Solid CAP), Super Ferrite Choke (SFC), and Highly-conductive Polymer Capacitor(Hi-c CAP). In performance, the military-Class Solid CAP has a 2.5 times longerlifespan than traditional aluminum foil caps, and the SFC can reduce power waste and provide highest system stability.




Most importantly, the Hi-c CAP fully implement on the Big Bang-Trinergy and Big Bang-Fuzion has a 8 times longer lifespan than traditional solid caps as well as effectively enhances power supply quality and efficiently reduces working temperature, allowing gamers to fully enjoy the fun of engaging with competitors online, without worrying about interruptions as a result of system failure due to overheat.


Quantum Wave Audio Card: Premium 3D Surround Sound




Quantum Wave Audio Card supports Creative EAX Advanced HD 5.0 and THX TruStudio PC Suite technologies to get the best 3D positioning sound effect.


In addition to 3D visual effect, sound effect counts to gamers. Therefore, MSI equips all Big Bang mainboards with the Quantum Wave Audio Card which supports the Creative EAX Advanced HD 5.0 technology. When compared with Creative's top-notch X-Fi Titanium sound card the 3D positioning function of Quantum Wave is no second to that of the X-Fi Titanium, allowing gamers to immediately locate the enemies by hearing. Otherwise, the THX TruStudio PC Suite provides outstanding surround effect. Along with the lose-less 24bit/192kHz HD audio technology exclusive from MSI, consumers can experience the sound from heaven when listening to music or watching movies.


No-compromise Overclocking Functions


In addition to high-standard components, overclocking potential is another consideration of consumers. Again, all Big Bang mainboards are equipped with the OC Genie one-second overclocking technology. By simply pressing the OC Genie button on the mainboboard, it will automatically overclock and optimize the settings of the CPU, RAM and chipset without running any additional procedure. With OC Dashboard, users can easily adjust the CPU frequency and CPU/VTT/DDR voltage without opening the case and monitor the system status. With the V-Switch and V-Check Point voltage adjustment and detection mechanisms, overclockers can directly measure and adjust the CPU/VTT/DDR voltage with a multi-meter without modding the circuit. These are all MSI's thoughtful hardware designs to voerclockers enjoying challenging the extreme overclocking.
