MSI P35 Platinum


Overall rating 9/10

The Intel P35 has seen a pretty quiet launch with retail boards already in store shelves. The MSI P35 Platinum is one of the few early products to hit the market that will still be based on DDR2 memory, but MSI does manage to implement some interesting ideas and bag themselves a winner.
