[Vortez@Cebit] MSI Military Class II, Big Bang Marshall, N580GTX Lightning, and more - Page 2

post #11 of 50
Thread Starter 
I'm intrigued by this:

- 8 x PCIe 2.0 lanes (16x) each running ‘Cease Fire’ (Mix models of GPU within the configuration eg. NVIDIA GTX 480 and NVIDIA GTX 580)

Does that mean it's got the Lucid Hydra chip?

nice, liking how they put the Front panel connections for power, reset and Led's on top of the Mobo and not on the bottomn

There's a lot of electronic's in military hardware (Planes, tanks, heli's, etc), and obviously that has to conform to some standard. I'm assuming, this stuff is tested to that standard.

Of course it's really all just a silly gimmick, but it sounds cool.

Sexy mobo. I'll take 2 of the 580 Lightnings and an Asus P8P67 Pro though.

If you haven't found out already, I found this quote from here.

"MSI’s exclusive “Cease-Fire†PCI-e Dip Switches allow easier control by toggling PCI-e lanes on or off. This can benefit users who are testing graphics cards or just want to free up additional lanes."

Ah thanks! Sounds like what the Rampage III Extreme has.

These 4 switches can be used to disable PCIe expansion cards in the corresponding slots. This makes it ideal to compare differences in performance under different configurations or should one card malfunction, it can simply be switched off to prevent conflicts.

No it doesnt its a gimmick, militaries around the world buy in bulk from the lowest bidder for a said contract. I'm in the Army and I can tell you from personal experience that I would NEVER use any components the military bought in my personal computer. This is why I never by anything from MSI.
The best way to describe it is everything in the military (computer hardware) is like a Tough Book. A durable, specialized exterior with average joe everyday run of the mill components inside.
Its sad to see people buying into the "military class" bs some of the manufacturers put out.
