Micro-Star International (MSI) has launched its AMD 760G chipset-based 760GTM-P33 motherboard, with integrated ATI Radeon HD 3000 GPU.

The motherboard also features MSI's Active Phase Switching (APS) technology, which is an IC chip that can automatically control various power supply demands to reduce total power usage, Easy OC Switch technology can help users to turn on overclocking with a click of the button, and TPM technology offers a more secure way to store files, highlighted the company.

The motherboard uses solid capacitors to ensure working stability.

MSI has also released its ATI Radeon HD 4890 GPU-based R4890 Cyclone series graphics cards, featuring 800 built-in stream processors and 1GB GDDR5 256-bit memory.

MSI R4890 Cyclone series adopt military class components, including Hi-c CAP, SSC (Solid State Chock), and long-life solid capacitors, and a 10cm PWM fan, noted MSI.

The MSI R4890 Cyclone series uses a 8mm heatpipe, which is 60% thicker than traditional heatpipes to help increase cooling efficiency by 90%.
