We already know that MSI is preparing a new flagship motherboard known as the Z87 XPower for the Haswell platform. Till now we have only seen teasers of the board but today we get to see an actual picture of the board itself. Other than the XPower, MSI has also unveiled their Z87 MPower and Z87 Gaming lineup.

To be honest, this is the first MSI board that I've been truly excited about in a long, long time...

Too bad it is coming out after I've left the company.
