MSI K8N Neo3-FSR Review
Posted by Philipp Esselbach on: 03/03/2005 09:00 AM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
TrustedReviews has posted a review on the MSI K8N Neo3-FSR motherboard which is a budget nForce 4 board for socket 754 processors with a twist as it supports both PCI Express x16 and AGP graphics cards.
At the top is a single x1 PCI Express slot, then a x16 PCI-E graphics slot, and then an AGP 3.0 slot with retention device. Below that are three regular PCI slots. MSI has realised that every PCI Express motherboard will only have two or three PCI slots, and that leaves a fair chunk of system resources free for what it terms an Accelerated Graphics Riser, or AGR. The AGR is effectively identical to an AGP 3.0 slot except that it has a significantly slower connection speed than AGP, so even though MSI has published a list of compatible graphics cards which includes a WinFast 6800GT and ATi Radeon 9700, itís only part of the story.
