MSI has announced the launch of their Z77A motherboards in India. MSI has three motherboards right now; the Z77A-GD65, Z77A-GD55 and Z77A-G45, all of which feature their latest Military Class III certification. All of the Military Class III components passed 7 critical tests like temperature, humidity and shock, in purpose to provide users the best stable platform for Ivy Bridge. MSI Z77 mainboard series with Military Class III certification will replace Z68/P67 to focus on the performance segment. The Z77 mainboard series is backwards compatible with both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors and also features OC Genie II, dual interface UEFI BIOS and ClickBIOS II. The exact pricing details are still being worked out so we’ll update you with the same as and when we get it.
Armed to the teeth with features
Some of the highlights of the new series include Military Class III components. This includes DrMOS II, which is their next-gen DrMOS program designed to offer better thermal protection from extended periods of overclocking. Hi-c capacitors with a Tantalum core ensures up to eight times longer lifespan. The Super Ferrite Choke delivers better power and the motherboard features all solid state capacitors. The boards have also passed the critical MIL-STD-810G Certification as well. OC Genie II is also present that allows you to instantly overclock the CPU at the press of a button. Since this is an application, you needn’t go into the BIOS and tweak anything, all the tweaking can be performed within Windows itself. MSI’s ClickBIOS II provides a consistent user interface both in the UEFI BIOS and in Windows. The GUI also offers touchscreen support. The new BIOS offers full system control, including overclocking, security and information. Finally, we come to the expansion slots where we have PCIE Gen 3 for the latest Nvidia and AMD GPUs. Below is a quick look at the detailed specifications of all three motherboards.
