Type: Product News
Latest Update: Wed, 21 May 2003

MSI™'s motherboards have been well known among computer professionals and users around the world. Today, MSI™ has unleashed its long awaited Neo version for the Intel® 865 chipset, with the support of 800 MHz Front Side Bus (FSB), and the advanced dual-channel DDR400 memory configurations. MSI™'s 865 Neo series motherboards are optimized to support the Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor with Hyper-Threading Technology, which was pioneered on Intel®'s advanced server processors. It helps your PC work more efficiently by maximizing processor resources and enabling a single processor to run two separate threads of software simultaneously. The result is greater performance and system responsiveness while running multiple applications at once. So you can multitask like never before.

  • 865PE Neo2-FIS2R
    The 865PE Neo2-FIS2R motherboard is designed to provide the highest performance and the most scalable chipset solution for the latest 800MHz FSB Intel® Pentium® 4 processors. With the support of Hyper-Threading Technology, the latest Intel® 800MHz FSB Pentium® 4 processor offers higher-performance processing than ever before. Built with Intel®'s 0.13-micron process technology, the Pentium® 4 processors deliver significant performance gains for use in home computing, business solutions and all your processing needs.

    The 865PE Neo2-FIS2R comes fully loaded with several features. An Intel® PRO/1000CT Gigabit LAN controller is integrated for faster networking access. Intel®'s PRO Gigabit LAN increases throughput by 50%, with real-world gains of up to 30%. If users want to connect more than one hard drive, the 865PE Neo-FIS2R features the ICH5R I/O controller and Promise® RAID and can set up multiple disk-array with the support of RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 0+1.

    Designed with user's benefits in mind, one ATA-133 compatible round cable is also bundled with the board to provide better airflow inside the computer case. For users always demand more and to get even better performance, the 865PE Neo-FIS2R incorporates with the latest Serial ATA technology. Serial ATA is the next-generation storage technology interface. At 150 MB per second, Serial ATA improves hard drive performance to keep pace with increasing data intensive environments such as audio/video, consumer electronics and entry-level servers.


    The 865PE Neo-FIS2R comes with the latest technology from MSI™ - CoreCell™ chip technology. CoreCenter™ is a smart automatic detecting tool exclusively from MSI™, and it combines the features from the well-known PC Alert™ and Fuzzy Logic™ utility software. CoreCenter™ can automatically adjust the CPU speed and the Vcore ratio of your AGP graphics card to its best condition. Besides, this useful software detects system temperature, the status of voltage, fan speed and all other key components onboard, reducing the risk of system damage.


  • 865G Neo2-LS
    The new 865G Neo2-LS is based on the latest Intel® 865G chipset and will appeal to average users and performance enthusiasts. The new 865G chipset has video function integrated in the chipset and is designed to provide the highest performance and the most scalable chipset solution for the latest Intel® 800MHz Pentium® 4 processors. The Intel® Pentium® 4 processors now utilize the most advanced 0.13-micro process technology, which offers optimized performance for audio, video, and Internet applications. The new 865G chipset also supports 800MHz FSB, which increases bandwidth and improves overall system performance.

    MSI™'s 865G Neo2-LS features Serial ATA and Intel® 10/100 LAN controller. The average desktop user or hardcore enthusiast will be completely satisfied with the MSI™ 865G Neo2-LS motherboard, as it offers everything these users could want.

    865PE Neo-L
    The new 865PE Neo-L is based on the latest Intel® 865PE chipset, which supports the latest Intel® 800MHz FSB Pentium® 4 processors. The 865PE Neo-L features the ICH4 I/O controller, supporting USB 2.0 and other necessary features. With the added bandwidth, the new chipset offers optimized performance for audio, video, and internet applications. The 865PE Neo-L is designed for those users who need a cost-effective solution for system manageability. An Intel® 10/100 LAN controller is integrated on the 865PE Neo-L board to provide fast networking connection.

    CoreCell™ Chip

    The CoreCell™ Chip brings 4 major innovative features: Speedster, BuzzFree, PowerPro and LifePro.

    Speedster technology: contains most flexible BIOS options for overclocking, including async mode of FSB and memory frequency, 0.05V increment for memory voltage adjustment and the minimal increment of 0.0125V for Vcore.

    BuzzFree technology: examines current system utilization and temperature before leveraging thermal requirement & fan speed -- dramatically cut up to 50% of system noise, reduce the annoying buzz and improve the quality of audio and video application.

    PowerPro technology: a power management solution, which helps to moderate power consumption up to 67%, to assure motherboard stability and to enhance overclocking capability.

    LifePro technology: prolongs motherboard, CPU and system fan life by monitoring their operations, which eliminates the possible system crash.
