MSI dabbles in both motherboards and graphics cards (as well as other components and products), and maybe that gives them an advantage when it comes to building boards for AMD's upcoming Fusion processors. Whether or not that's the case, MSI isn't bashful about laying claim to the "world's fastest mainboard with integrated graphics," the newly released A75MA-G55 built around AMD's FM1 socket.
"With nearly 25 years of mainboard overclocking experience built into the A75MA-G55, it is the perfect tool to enjoy the ultimate performance of AMD's upcoming A-series APUs," MSI explains. "High ranking overclocker Toppc, who recently won MSI's ultimate overclocking championship MOA in Taiwan, broke several world records for Integrated Graphics performance such as a 3DMark 11 Performance of P1645 points."
The A75MA-G55 board is a micro-ATX part based on AMD's Hudson D3 chipset. It features MSI's Military Class II components. four DIMM slots with support for up to 32GB of memory, four USB 3.0, eight USB 2.0 ports, six SATA 6Gbps, 8-channel audio, GbE LAN, HDMI, DVI, D-Sub, and MSI's Click BIOS concept based on UEFI.
