MSI releases motherboard with support for 128 GB of RAM

MSI, a leading Taiwanese manufacturer of motherboards, has introduced a new motherboard – MSI X79A-GD45 (8D) – that is based on Intel’s newest X79 chipset and features 8 DIMM slots for a total support of 128 GB of quad-channeled DDR3 memory. Processors supported, as expected, are all solutions based on socket 2011.

The new motherboard is an 8 DIMM slot version of the same motherboard released a bit earlier.

MSI aims to deliver a high quality high-end board and this is why it has equipped it with Military Class III components (DrMOS II, Hi-C CAP, Solid CAP, Super Ferrite Choke), 8 slots for memory with support for DDR3-2400 memory, two SATA 6.0 Gbps and four SATA 3.0 Gbps ports, plus three PCI-Express 3.0 x16 and two PCIe 2.0 x16 slots.

The X79A-GD45 (8D) board also features one PCIe x1 slot, Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports (two on the back plate, two via a header), 7.1-channel audio, Click BIOS II (UEFI), and the OC Genie II overclocking function.

Pricing is still unknown but judging by the price of the cheaper quad memory slot model (195 EUR) the new 8-slot X79A-GD45 (8D) will easily go above 200 EUR.
