MSI K9N Platinum (Socket AM2) Motherboard Pictures and Specs

Postby Apoptosis » Sat Feb 25, 2006 5:41 pm

The website tweakers had some images posted up of the upcoming MSI K9N Platinum (Socket M2/AM2) motherboard that I thought you all would like to take a look at. These are rumored to be real pictures and they are the first board company to have leaked images up.

The MSI K9N Platinum Motherboard:

The chipset is huge compared to the one used on the upcoming ATI RD580 boards, but looks like a normal board minus the 940-pin CPU socket called Socket AM2.

The Inq. had this to say aboout the board:

The "nForce5" chipset in question is known under a name "MCP55", and its more or less the same nForce4 SLI chipset we know today, only featuring new enhancements in various sectors: it supports 20 PCIe lanes (so the two x16 slots you're seeing on a picture are electrically x16. Data throughput wise - x8), six SATA-II devices and one PATA interface, a single Gigabit Ethernet (nV GbE) and most importantly - eight-channel RealTek ALC882D High-Definition Audio chip.

Has anyone seen any high end motherboards that use the 939 chipset- AND uses both AGP and PCIe video slots?

nope, the closest thing is the ASRock SATAII board.

Hi i have a dumb question , what is the plastic piece around the processor chip with the four screws in it, because i am missing that and need it to connect my heatsink. But if anyone could help that would be great, thank you.

It comes on all am2/am2+ boards. Its meant for exactly what you need it for. You may be able to find one on ebay.
