This feature allows it to support both NVIDIA’s SLI and ATI’s CrossFireX dual-graphics cards technologies for an easy and optimal graphical performance expansion.
The especially small MSI X58M equips 6 phase power design for its PWM which fully supports the Intel Core i7 line of CPUs. MSI X58M mainboard uses a true Blu-ray hi-def sound ALC889S audio chip, and also includes support for 7.1 sound channels, DTS, Dolby and other sound technologies.
