MSI's new Z77 mainboards improve your PC experience on all fronts. Whether you're upgrading your current system or building one anew, you'll immediately notice a world of improvements. Socket LGA1155 based on the Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge architecture both fit in MSI's Z77 series mainboards. Thanks to the advanced architecture of MSI Z77 mainboards, older Sandy Bridge CPUs can run at a lower voltage, reducing power consumption!
Memory performance is enhanced drastically, allowing for higher clockspeeds of your memory on MSI's new Z77A-GD65. USB3.0 performance is greatly improved compared to older mainboards which relied on extra and expensive USB3.0 chips. Benchmarks have shown up to 77% faster write speeds on USB3.0 connected devices.
