Gamers looking to upgrade their motherboard or build a new gaming rig in the next few months may be interested in a new piece of hardware unveiled by MSI this week in the form of the MSI X370 Krait gaming motherboard.
Based on the high-grade AMD X3 70 chipset and specifically created for the new range of AMD Ryzen processors the latest MSI motherboard is equipped with a wealth of features including higher grade capacitors, VR Boost specialised USB ports, a higher SNR audio CODEC with Nahmic 2 and EM shielding and more.
The Tech Power Up website explains a little more about what you can expect from this high-performance gaming motherboard from MSI :
Like the X370 SLI Plus, the X370 Krait Gaming draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors, conditioning it for the processor with an 8+2 phase VRM. The AM4 socket is wired to four DDR4 DIMM slots, and two PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots (x8/x8 with both populated), besides two each of the board’s USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gb/s ports.
In all, storage connectivity includes six SATA 6 Gb/s ports, one 32 Gb/s M.2 slot with NVMe booting support, while the USB connectivity includes two USB 3.1 ports (one each type-A and type-C), and six USB 3.0 ports (four on the rear panel, two by headers). 8-channel HD audio and gigabit Ethernet make for the rest of it. We expect this board to be priced at a $20-30 premium over the X370 SLI Plus.
