Intel’s Coffee Lake launch has well and truly delivered the expected counter-response to AMD Ryzen and for the most part, this can certainly be regarded as a positive thing for those on the consumer and manufacturer side of the fence. Competition in this market place is great news for enthusiasts and gamers, and long may it continue!
So far in our endeavours with Intel Coffee Lake and the Intel Z370 chipset, we’ve examined a number of boards from various partners but today we’ll be putting MSI’s efforts under the spotlight.
In our hands today, we have the MSI Z370 GAMING PRO CARBON AC which, as its name suggests supplies us with 802.11ac functionality straight out of the box. Along with the WiFi capabilities, this board also arrives with dual M.2 slots, trademark MSI features like Audio Boost 4 and MYSTIC LIGHT RGB functionality.
As a world leading gaming brand, MSI's goal is to become the most trusted name in gaming and e-sport. We've dedicated countless hours and committed numerous resources to the eSports community to support the world's most aspiring and best gamers and use their knowledge and expertise in our products in return.
