MSI preparing a new AMD 770 based motherboard
With DDR3 memory support
We managed to get some pictures of MSI's upcoming 770-C35 budget AM3 motherboard based on AMD's 770 chipset paired up with the SB710 southbridge.
According to the paper, the board supports AMD's 140W CPUs and comes with support for the DDR3 memory. It has four DDR3 slots with support for DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600, and it comes with one PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot, two PCI-Express x1 slots and three plain PCI slots.
The rest of the spec includes Gigabit LAN (courtesy of Realtek RTL8111DL chip), integrated Realtek ALC888S 8-channel audio, one IDE and and six SATA II ports thanks to the SB710 southbridge, six USB 2.0 ports on the back panel and six more via three on-board USB 2.0 pinheaders.
The motherboard will have a hardware overclock FSB switch on-board, and as this will be a budget part, there won't be any fancy on/off and reset buttons on-board.
Here are some pictures of this new budget motherboard.
