Geforce 9300 in all its glory
We wrote about MSI's MCP7A-S motherboards, based on the upcoming Geforce 9300 IGP chipset. The official release date is tomorrow and as we wrote earlier, MSI will have at least two of these boards, the P7NGM-Digital and P7NGM-FI.
The first one, P7NGM-Digital should be a premium offer based on the Geforce 9300, while the P7NGM-FID should be a budget version based on the same chipset. The first one will have all solid capacitors design, four memory slots for up to 8GB of DDR2 memory, and will feature HDMI, DVI and D-Sub video ouput connectors. The second one, P7NGM-FI is a budget-oriented motherboard so that solid capacitors are limited to PWM and MCH only, it has only two memory slots for up to 4GB of DDR2-800 memory, and it comes only with a D-Sub video output connector.
Both motherboards support Nvidia's Hybrid SLI with the Geforce Boost technology, Nvidia's PureVideo HD, and both of them will feature a support for DirectX 10, courtesy of the integrated Geforce 9300 graphics core.
Here are the pictures of both motherboards.
