Pricey Platinum


MSI
has launched its first 790GX motherboard, the DKA790GX Platinum, and we had a chance to snap a picture of it during MSI's event in Belgrade last Friday.

It features 2 PCIe x16 slots, one of which is x8 electrically, 2 PCIe x1 slots, 2PCI slots, MSI's DrMOS and a heatpipe cooler. On the back side it packs a plethora of connectors, VGA, DVI, HDMI, 6xUSB 2.0, Firewire, LAN, eSATA and 7.1 audio. There are six more internal USBs, as well as a Firewire connector, 5x SATA II RAID 0/1/0+1/5 (SB750), 1x PATA, 1x Floppy and three fan connectors.

It packs Radeon HD 3300 graphics, the fastest IGP currently available, supports Hybrid CrossFire and CrossFireX (x8/x8). The DKA790GX Platinum isn't available yet, but it should retail at 130+ euro, which doesn't sound very cheap considering the pricing of other 790GX boards on the market.
