[TT] MSI makes combo memory P45 mobo to the max

COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2008 Normally combination memory motherboards mean you have to compromise on the total capacity.

Traditionally we have either two slots for one type of memory and two for the other. In some cases, you have two slots for one type and four for the other, depending on which technology is newer gets the extra slots.



Well here comes MSI, aiming at giving you the best combo board without compromising on anything. The new P4S8D is an Intel P45 Express based motherboard with single graphics card option but with memory capacities of 8GB of either DDR2 or 8GB of DDR3.



Eight total memory slots are given, four of them are for DDR3 (blue and purple) and four for DDR2 (Green and Orange). This makes MSI’s board the highest capacity combo board out there. Way to go.

Yeah I got flamed for saying this board is retarded when someone had news of it before.

Once again, I don't think it is useful at all. Grab a DDR2 or DDR3 board, not both. =\\

Why do motherboard manufacturer's keep putting "Touch" on their PWM heat sinks? I think it's an easy way to get sued.

Its not useful if you already have DDR3 RAM, but if you have some DDR2 and are waiting for DDR3 prices to fall then this could be very useful because you won't have to buy another board just for DDR3 RAM when you can afford it.
