<P align=center><STRONG><EM>Without performance bottlenecks which competitors offer</EM></STRONG></P>
<P>World renowned mainboard, vga, and notebook manufacturer MSI presents its P55-GD85 mainboard for Intel latest 32nm process and LGA1156 packaged Core i3 / i5 / i7 series CPU. In addition, the mainboard is built-in with SATA 6Gb/s and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 protocols and each has 2X and 10X ultra-high data transmission bandwidths respectively than their predecessors. OC Genie, SuperPipe and DrMOS and tons of other features.</P><P><STRONG>Support SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0 via bandwidth effectively PLX chip</STRONG>MSI P55-GD85 Mainboard is specially built in with Marvell and NEC chips to provide SATA 6Gb/s and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support, which gives ultra-high transmission bandwidth as high as 6Gb/s and 5G/bs.</P>

<P>The MSI P55-GD85 is without any bottlenecks in the performance because unlike other competitor solutions MSI is using a PLX PCI-E bridge chip to multiply the PCI-E bandwidth as well as most effective distribution when using the functions of SATA 6Gb/s and USB 3.0 functions.</P>
<P>Some competitors claim to offer SATA3 and USB3 on their new P55 products except they don’t use a PLX chip. Without this PLX chip they suffer from crippled PCI-E x16 VGA performance because it only runs on x8 speed on their boards.</P>
<P><STRONG>OC Genie 1 second overclocking feature</STRONG>MSI’s exclusive OC Genie makes overclocking more accessible; simply by pressing the OC Genie button on the mainboard. The OC Genie automatic overclocking chip detects and sets performance-optimized CPU, RAM, and chipset settings within one secon d, for an easy performance boost.</P>
<P><STRONG>SuperPipe world’s thickest heatpipe (8mm)</STRONG>Efficient cooling technology for mainboards becomes critical as it determines the board’s overclocking ability and stability. MSI SuperPipe is 60% thicker than traditional pipes and therefore the world’s thickest heatpipe (8mm, which offers the best heat dissipation in the market.</P>
<P><STRONG>DrMOS the best performance per watt</STRONG>MSI has been equipping DrMOS since the introduction of its P45 mainboards. DrMOS technology combines a Driver IC, a Top MOSFET and a Bottom MOSFET into one chip. The shorter distance between every component provides 4 times faster phase switching speed and over 90% better power efficiency. Basically, DrMOS offers the best performance per watt.</P>
<P><STRONG>V-Kit</STRONG>The feature can help with saving valuable time during advanced overclocking by eliminating the need for manual circuit modification. Users can measure the CPU and RAM voltages with a multimeter on the implemented V-Check Points. MSI P55-GD85 is also equipped with a V-Switch which removes the voltage limitations. In this way users can measure and increase the voltages. These combined features can be very important during overclocking competitions.</P>
<P><STRONG>Direct OC &amp; Easy Button 2</STRONG>Direct OC is an attractive feature for extreem overclockers. By pressing the +/- buttons, users can real-time adjust the CPU frequency. Direct OC works in any situation without restriction, and, when coupled with OC Genie technology, offers a great performance increase. The Direct OC buttons are part of a new type of “Easy Button 2” which are integrated in the PCB. MSI P55-GD85 offers touch sensitive Easy Button 2 keys to power on and reset the system by a simple touch of the PCB.</P>

<P><STRONG>APS power-saving technology</STRONG>MSI P55 is aimed to fit consumers’ demand for power saving and therefore are equipped with APS (Active Phase Switching). APS switches the number of power phases corresponding to the needs of the CPU load and is OS independent. With fewer phases the system works more power efficient at lower CPU loads.</P>
<P><STRONG>Winki 2.0</STRONG>Winki 2.0 is a Linux-based O/S. With an ultra-fast booting speed and a multi-language interface, Winki 2.0 provides an easy-to-use internet environment that includes the most popular functions such as easy internet usage, mail, instant messaging, picture browsing, and more. It’s the most practical way to be online in the shortest time.</P>
<P><STRONG>Power eSATA</STRONG>Power eSATA is a USB and eSATA combined port. This feature allows users to use eSATA devices directly without having to plug-in an extra power cable. High transaction speeds are now possible with no additional power cable needed to increase the level of convenience and transfer rates.</P>
<P><STRONG>True Blu-ray Audio</STRONG>Audio sampling without Blu-ray protection support downgrades sound quality to the CD 16bit/48KHz level. However, MSI’s True Blu-ray Audio provides high definition, 7.1 channels, high quality 24bit/192KHz audio sampling to satisfy a hometheatre user’s needs!</P>
