MSI working on modular motherboard

Today is April Fools’ Day so jokes are common but what we are about to share with you is not a joke – instead all this is real. So here’s the story – MSI is working on a new modular motherboard called The One that may shatter everything you know about motherboards so far.

The main feature of The One is that the motherboard will allow users to upgrade most of its parts individually, which means users will be able to switch from an Intel CPU socket to an AMD one without changing the entire motherboard. Another example is that with The One users will be able to replace the I/O panel in the back and add a new one that has more USB ports or even new technologies while keeping the same motherboard.

There are no specific details as of now but if The One is done in the right way users will be able to combine hardware components of all kinds and create countless computer configurations on the cheap. The board is said to support all Intel processors starting from the Nehalem generation (year 2008) and all AMD chips from the Phenom II/Athlon II generation. MSI says it will release upgrade modules for The One on a regular basis so when the new AMD Zen processors arrive there will be a Zen module as well allowing users to switch from an Intel Skylake chip to Zen if they wish.

The new The One motherboard is expected in early May. We will keep you posted on this really unique piece of hardware.
