MSI’s exclusive OC Genie makes overclocking more accessible; simply by pressing the OC Genie button on the mainboard. The OC Genie automatic overclocking chip detects and sets performance-optimized CPU, RAM, and chipset settings within one second, for an easy performance boost.
Efficient cooling technology for mainboards becomes critical as it determines the board’s overclocking ability and stability. MSI SuperPipe is 60% thicker than traditional pipes and therefore the world’s thickest heatpipe (8mm, which offers the best heat dissipation in the market.
MSI has been equipping DrMOS since the introduction of its P45 mainboards. DrMOS technology combines a Driver IC?a Top MOSFET and a Bottom MOSFET into one chip. The shorter distance between every component provides 4 times faster phase switching speed and over 90% better power efficiency. Basically, DrMOS offers the best performance per watt.
The feature can help save advanced overclockers valuable time by eliminating the need for manual circuit modification. Users can measure the CPU and RAM voltages with a multimeter on the implemented V-Check Points. MSI P55-GD80 is also equipped with a V-Switch which removes the voltage limitations. In this way users can measure and increase the voltages. These combined features can be very important during overclocking competitions.
Direct OC is an attractive feature for ultimate overclockers. By pressing the +/- buttons, users can real-time adjust the CPU frequency. Direct OC works in any situation without restriction, and, when coupled with OC Genie technology, offers a great performance increase.
MSI P55 is aimed to fit consumers’ demand for power saving and therefore are equipped with APS (Active Phase Switching). APS switches the number of power phases corresponding to the needs of the CPU load and is OS independent. With fewer phases the system works more power efficient at lower CPU loads.
Winki 2.0 is a free Linux-based O/S. With an ultra-fast booting speed and a multi-language interface, Winki 2.0 provides an easy-to-use internet environment that includes the most popular functions such as internet surfing, mail, instant messaging, picture browsing, and more. It’s the most practical way to be online in the shortest time.
Power eSATA is a USB and eSATA combined port. This feature allows users to use eSATA devices directly without having to plug-in an extra power cable. High transaction speeds are now possible with no additional power cable needed to increase the level of convenience and transfer rates.
Audio sampling without Blu-ray protection support downgrades sound quality to the CD 16bit/48KHz level. However, MSI’s True Blu-ray Audio provides high definition, 7.1 channels, high quality 24bit/192KHz audio sampling to satisfy a home theatre enthusiast’s needs!
USB Safeguard can prevent mainboards and USB devices from being damaged by short-circuit and ESD (Electro-Static Discharge) with Anti-ESD chips built-into the mainboards. Additionally, the safeguard can protect against such dangers multiple times, and greatly improves product lifespan.
Overclockers and power users often need to turn on/off or reset their PC without any chassis installed. Easy Button 2 equips power, reset and clear CMOS sensitive keys directly on the mainboards. Easy button 2 offers overclockers immediate access to these functions when needed during overclocking. MSI P55-GD80 offers touch sensitive Easy Button 2 keys.
