[Brawncake]MSI A88X-G45 GAMING Review

What, you didn’t know B2G accepted user reviews? MSI.Brawncake takes the MSI A88X-G45 GAMING for a spin.

MSI recently released its first AMD gaming motherboards, the MSI A88X-G45 GAMING and A88XM GAMING. Both are FM2+/FM2 socket based motherboards equipped with AMD’s A88X chipset which are designed to go with the new AMD Kaveriprocessors although previous generation of APU processors are still compatible. Injected with the same DNA of its predecessors, The MSI A88X-G45 GAMING and MSI A88XM GAMING share almost the same features that are found from the previous MSI gaming motherboards. MSI has also decided to bundle the A88X-G45 with the game Assassin’s Creed Liberation for free.

    Performance weighed down by processor. Good OC performance, decked-out full ATX feature set, nice fat bundle with free game. Pretty accessible pricing.

    ^That would be how I would score it.

    Looks like a very promising AMD gaming board. Medio steep lang ng onti yung price vs sa mobo na gusto ko din. Sana babaan nila.
