Micro-Star International (MSI), one of the leaders in motherboard
manufacturing, today launched its latest X48 Series motherboards based on Intel®
X48 Express chipset. The new MSI X48 Series motherboards include the most
exclusive features designed for PC enthusiast and give users the ultimate
computing experience with amazing advantages.

45nm & XMP Ready Guarantee Outstanding Performance

The new MSI X48 Series motherboard supports the latest 45nm multi-core Intel®
processors & XMP (Extreme Memory Profiles) with up to FSB 1600 & DDR3-1600 to
bring the most powerful performance. The FSB 1600 support will prepare the fully
compatible with the highest segment of Intel 45nm quad-core (Yorkfield)
processors, and XMP also provides a direct way to boost the high speed memory
module up to 1600MHz (even more) and gives extreme performance to the
enthusiast.

“The ultimate CPU & memory support of MSI X48 series motherboards will redefine
the real enthusiast playground” said Vincent Lai, marketing director of MSI.

Exclusive Dual-Channel PWM

In order to provide the most stable environment for overclocking, MSI X48 Series
comes with a revolutionary “Dual-Channel PWM” (PWM: Pulse Width Modulation;
controlling analog circuits to provide a CPU’s power). The advanced design of
two pairs shielded choke and MOSFET base on the basic 4-phase PWM provide the
best convert rate of CPU power to make the highest power efficiency.

Exclusive Cooling Solution “Circu-Pipe”

The new MSI X48 Series is equipped with enhanced fanless cooling design
“Circu-Pipe” and water-cooling revision in the future. The new Circu-Pipe
provides the best cooling solution with its fin-typed heatsink around the
heat-pipe, which reduces heat efficiently and saves more space. In addition, it
resolves the heat generated by PCIe extender chip, providing the best total
thermal solution for the whole system.

Besides these impressive improvements, the new MSI X48 Series motherboards
include numerous exclusive features as well as Quad graphics slots, MSI SkyTel
VoIP, all Made-in-Japan solid capacitors, and more that will definitely bring
enthusiasts to experience extreme PC computing.
