Combined with OC Genie maximises AMD CPU's performance
890gxm-boxshot.gifApart from enhancing performance and saving energy, releasing full CPU potential by unlocking additional cores has become the hot topic of all power users nowadays. The 890GXM-G65 mainboard with integrated ATI Radeon HD 4290 graphics core, recently announced by internationally renowned mainboard, VGA card, notebook and All-in-One maker MSI, redefines the first-choice of full-functional mainboard.


This MSI 890GXM-G65 includes support for DirectX 10.1, ATI CrossFireX for installing two high-performance ATI Radeon HD graphics cards, USB3.0 and native SATA 6Gb/s and the MSI-exclusive OC Genie. Combining the MSI-exclusive OC Genie and MSI Unlock CPU Core technologies, consumers can easily unlock the hidden CPU cores up to Six Cores from the BIOS option to enhance the overall CPU performance and C/P value.


MSI BIOS engineers succeeded to unlock the AMD CPU cores via BIOS code without any additional chips on the mainboard. This proves the talented skills of the MSI BIOS team and gives our customers the flexibility to upgrade their MSI mainboards based on the AMD800 series and unlock CPU cores. Not only does the MSI 890GXM-G65 support the new upcoming 6 core CPU but MSI is the only one to unlock the 4 core Zosma based CPU up to 6-cores. By unlocking a dual core CPU into a quad core CPU, users can boost the CPU performance over 104%.

OC Genie
When working with the OC Genie, the automatic overclocking technology from MSI, OC Genie can smartly adjust the CPU clock to boost the CPU performance up to 148%. The combination of Unlock CPU Core and OC Genie doubles its performance. The 890GXM-G65 supports the fastest 140W AMD CPUs allowing consumers to enjoy the performance of multi-core CPUs with the budget of dual-core CPUs.

Hybrid CrossFire & SidePort Memory
MSI’s 890GXM-G65 supports ATI CrossFireX for operating two ATI graphic cards in parallel at the same time for ultimate, scalable performance. Hybrid Crossfire support means that users may also add an additional ATI Radeon HD2400/3400 graphics card to work with the integrated graphics core to handle the computing demand of more applications and games with this double graphics solution. The 890GXM-G65 is also equipped with 1 gigabit (128MB) DDR3 1333MHz SidePort memory to accelerate the 3D display performance of the integrated graphics core and reduce system memory consumption with this independent IGP memory for handling other programs – meaning there is no need for an extra budget to enjoy stunning performance.

All AMD800 series mainboards from MSI supports the Unlock CPU technology and the new-generation AMD Phenom II X6 CPUs through BIOS updates for consumers to enjoy the ultimate computing performance of AMD 6-core CPUs at their fingertips.
