AMD has just launched its new Trinity APUs and we were amazed by the affordable pricing of the new chip as we reported here. MSI now launches the perfect mainboard companions for the new APUs.
We reported here
about the company’s top of the line FM2-A85X-G65 motherboard, but today MSI is presenting the MicroATX models called FM2-A55M and FM2-A75MA-E35 along with the MiniITX FM2-A75IA-E53.
Not much is known about the new models, but from the low-quality pictures that MSI has provided we can distinguish that they all feature a full-sized PCI-Express Gen2 x16 slot for a powerful discrete video card when such a graphics adapter is deemed necessary.
USB 3.0 support should also be present, along with SATA 3 and RAID support.
The official press release and the official MSI website do not offer any pricing information on the new motherboards, but we expect them to be quite affordable in order to be in line with AMD
’s own Trinity pricing scheme.
We’ve managed to gather some better pictures of the new models and you can check these in the gallery below.
