2010 CES: MSI

MSI has been showing the P55-based Big Bang "Fuzion" motherboard lately, and we got to see one in person in their suite:

The Fuzion offers the unique capability of running both ATI and NVIDIA cards together in the same system, in a pseudo-SLI/Crossfire setup, using Lucid's "Hydra" chip. The chip and driver provide extra PCI-E lanes and intercept DirectX and OpenGL calls to provide intelligent load balancing across multiple graphics cards. How well does this work? We'll let you know when we receive one to review! The Fuzion does not include SATA 6Gb/s or USB 3.0, though. We also glimpsed a motherboard based on the as-yet-unannounced AMD 890FX chipset.

Of course MSI was showing off their entire line of motherboards and graphics cards, including new H55/H57 systems. Like other manufacturers, MSI's moving to solid tantalum-core capacitors and solid state chokes to improve the reliability and robustness of their power circuits.

My last "suite stop" was Thermaltake....
