[Hexus] MSI teases gaming motherboards to rival the ASUS ROG series - Page 19

post #181 of 278
MSI means they are competing with the ASRock Fatal1ty series only tongue.gif Unless they put actual useful high end features in, seems like a waste a money.

You'd be surprised. Give people a proper ABX test on above average equipment and often people suck at differentiating. Even the self-proclaimed audiophiles. People are better differentiating with tracks they know and equipment they're used to, but change one of those things and the ability to recognize the difference becomes a guessing game.

There was this small test done by Maximum PC back in the day: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/do_higher_mp3_bit_rates_pay_off?page=0,0

The difference between 60Hz and 120Hz is pretty significant imo, but believe it or not, some people still don't see the difference until you tell them to look for it or show them the nuances. You've got to really sensitive to be able to differentiate 110 and 120Hz. This is even more true in game. I'd honestly be really surprised if someone were able to do it consistently.

Linus had a video up of him testing to see if he can see the difference between 60/120:

I don't believe anyone when they say "oh I can tell the difference between x and y" in this kind of stuff until it's tested. People often think too much of themselves.

Yea I kinda agree with you, you can tell the difference between stuff, but mainly only if you really are looking for it.
I've used several types of screens and most of the time it doesn't bother me having a horrible screen or a good screen, its just when I have them side by side that it becomes pretty much unbearable to look at the horrible screen.

Msi said this on their facebook page: "Gaming is about FPS. In order to support your fragging needs our Gaming motherboards support both SLI and CrossFire." Don't even bother to release your gaming motherboards if they don't support sli or crossfire.

Here are the Gaming Boards:


Z77A-G43 Gaming:


Z77A-G45 Gaming:


Z77A-GD65 Gaming:



source: http://uk.hardware.info/news/33784/cebit-msi-displays-new-z77-gaming-motherboards



So essentially these are the regular MSI boards in a different color scheme and a few more gaming features. kinda like it because it gives to the consumer (aka Enthusiast) two color options for the same board. (and for yellow lovers the Mpower to the rescue)

I'll be interested to see the pricing, but I really wish they came up with something other than a dragon. Dragons in general are played out - dragon tattoos, dragon stickers, dragon movies etc.

However, if you plan on liquid cooling and full cover blocks are available, then awesome...problem solved. BTW, since these are based on existing boards, I wonder if blocks that are already in existence will work fine.

nothing smaller than ATX? I expected at least one 'Gaming Series' board from MSI's standard MA and IA line.
