NVIDIA decided to launch the first cards with Maxwell architecture in the current mid-range, that is, inside of the GTX 700 family. This has allowed us to prove the high energetic efficiency and the great performance it is capable to offer in relation to its intake.
With this design, graphic cards like the GTX 750 are possible, which with a compact size, allow us to execute most Full HD games without any trouble. Besides, by having a chip with these features, its overclock margin is more elevated than other GPUs’; this way, the MSI has presented and adequately exploited the MSI GTX 750 OCV1, a new version of the GTX 750 with increased speed in comparison to the reference NVIDIA model.
We are facing a GTX 750 Maxwell GPU working at 1059 native MHz, but that can reach the 1137 MHz in Boost mode. It keeps a 1GB GDDR5 memory at 5.000 MHz with a 128 bit memory interface, typical of the graphics based on this GPU.
AMD APUs offer in a processor and a graphics card in a single chip, perfect for mini-ITX motherboards.
The new motherboard MSI A88XI AC has everything you need to host a Kaveri APU, capable of handling 4K resolutions or three monitors. It supports two DDR3 RAM modules with a maximum of 32 GB at 2400 MHz, four 6 Gbps SATA ports with RAID and HDMI 1.4a support, DVI and VGA, USB 3.0 and Ethernet 1 Gbps connectivity. As the tagline "AC" indicates, it has support for high-speed Wi-Fi AC with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. The sound card has 8 channels with a dedicated DAC chip.
For those seeking added graphics power, the MSI A88XI AC includes a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 port, support for internal Crossfire between APU and Radeon graphics and support for AMD R7 series. It also includes a mini-PCIe port to add some additional expansion capabilities.

We’re before a Mini-ITX motherboard with Z87 chipset and a GTX760 graphics card that comes with overclocking.
Earlier this week, we talked about the two new components that MSI had shown, it was a motherboard and a graphics card, both designed for gamers.
Now the company has unveiled more details and has confirmed our theories: it is a graphics card based on the GeForce GTX 760 from Nvidia, but with a PCB and cooling system completely redesigned to make it smaller, ideal for mini-ITX cases. Its name is MSI GTX 760 GAMING OC.

The new computer integrated within the screen has components comparable to those of a high-end gaming laptop.
We could take a quick look at it at the CeBIT 2013 although the final specs are different from the model we saw back then. This version called the MSI AG2712A keeps the 27-inch 1920 x 1080 screen and a touch panel with 10 detection points. It has a quad-core Intel Core i7-3630QM processor at 3.4 GHz, four DDR3 RAM slots at 1333 MHz with a max of 16 GB.
The GPU is the greatest improvement; back at the CeBIT we saw an MSI AG2712 with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX, and the official model will instead feature the AMD Radeon HD 8970M with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, AMD’s most powerful GPU as of now.

MSI has officially presented the new MSI N760 Hawk, a graphics card designed for Overclockers thanks to its Twin BIOS and new features tan not only increase the overclocking performance and possibilities, but also offer a professional overclocking performance without great technical knowledge.
As a cooling system for the new MSI N760 HAWK, MSI has once again included the famous Twin Frozr IV Advanced heat sink, which has two 10-centimeters fans, each on with PropellerBlade and Airflow Control technologies, to keep the N760 Hawk’s temperature as low as possible. According to MSI, this system can decrease the temperature by an additional 10ºC –compared to the reference model-, also reducing the noise by 12.48 dB.

The new model of MSI’s gaming series with chip GTX 770 from NVIDIA comes with 4 GB GDDR5 RAM.
We could see the prototype at the Computex 2013, but the model that was officially released featured 2GB GDDR5 RAM. Now, MSI has officially presented the 4 GB version, something that will surely benefit those who like to play their games at high resolutions and with filters.
The design is identical to the 2 GB one we already knew, with a customized design and a TwinFrozr 4 cooling system with double 100-mm fans, copper heat pipes and an aluminum-made heat sink. It can be over clocked, reaching speeds of 1137/1189 MHz for the GPU, without and with turbo, respectively. The 4 GB GDDR5 RAM works at 7000 MHz.
Naturally, it will be slightly more expensive than its 2 GB counterpart: if that one costs around 400 Euros, the new version with twice as much RAM will cost about 40-50 USD more.
At the Computex 2013 we could see MSI’s gaming version of the GTX 770 graphics card. Now, the company has officially announced a superior model, a MSI oriented for Gaming computers, based on the GeForce GTX 780 chip. It features a custom cooling system with two 100-mm fans, which allows it to reach speed of up to 954 MHz (1006 MHz with turbo Boost), an interesting increase from the reference model’s 863 / 900 MHz. All of that without exceeding a temperature of 68 degrees and a sound level of 25.7 dB.
It keeps its 6008 Mhz speed and the 3 Gb GDDR5 vRAM, two DVI ports, a DisplayPort and a HDMI. We can change between OC and normal modes, and even a silent mode with the included MSI Gaming App software. Also, with MSI Afterburner you can increase the speeds even further or save your game.
Its release Price is still unknown, but it’s almost certain to be higher than 820 USD, the GTX 780’s current price with a heat sink.
