Graphics Development and Misc

With nothing new from the graphics chipmakers, MSI was intent on improving their current offerings, with better, more reliable components and improved cooling solutions.

MILSPEC or military class is what MSI is aiming for its graphics cards, with pure iron used in the solid state chokes on the graphics cards. Claimed advantages include no buzzing noise under heavy load, protection from power surge and better for overclocking.

The military class chokes on one of the MSI's graphics card.

The other thrust of MSI's strategy for its graphics cards is in the form of cooling, with this large 'Cyclone' fan a key example.

The rather large but hopefully quiet Cyclone cooler. It has multiple heatpipes for heat transfer and helps to cool the surrounding components around the GPU core.

We spotted this SyrenSound Hardcore sound card at MSI's booth. It uses a PCIe x1 interface and supports 7.1 audio.

We saw this last year at Computex but MSI's in-vehicle entertainment system, Funtoro is back.
