MSI debuts the 970A Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard

MSI has done something really interesting – the acclaimed Taiwanese company has just announced a brand new AM3+ motherboard. We kind of wonder who’s going to build a new PC on the old AM3+ socket but apparently MSI has an answer to this question.

Anyway, let’s take a look at the motherboard. Called 970A Gaming Pro Carbon the board comes with a new PCB design. Based on the AMD 970 + AMD SB950 chipset, the motherboard draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS power connectors and offers an 8-phase VRM to the CPU. In addition to this the 970A Gaming Pro Carbon features two PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots (x8/x8 when both are populated), three PCI-E 2.0 x1 slots, one legacy PCI slot, metal reinforcement braces for the PCI-E x16 slots, six SATA 3.0 ports, and a 20 Gb/s M.2 slot. The connectivity options the 970A Gaming Pro Carbon offers include two USB 3.1 Type-A connectors, four USB 3.0 ports, and Gigabit Ethernet. Furthermore the board has a high-grade on-board audio solution that includes a 115 dBA SNR CODEC, ground-layer isolation, audio-grade capacitors, UEFI BIOS, RGB LEDs, support for NVMe booting and headset OPAMP.

The price of the MSI 970A Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard is unknown.
