At Beat IT 2014 event, MSI announced its new X99 chipset motherboard, which will support the Intel Haswell-E processors and eight DDR4 memory slots. If you like the previous release from MSI which is X99S Gaming 9 AC, then I’m damn sure you will like this Bad boy more than its older sibling. The new MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK in terms of specifications is almost identical to its sibling, but it’s equipped with improved Internet connectivity.
MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK Motherboard bears Two Killer Networking Adapters
MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK comes with built-in “Streaming Engine” AverMedia capture card, and it is styled to match most readily-available gaming hardware. Apart from other specifications the most eye catching feature is that, it’s equipped with an Intel adapter for a Killer 1525 from Qualcomm. Unlike previous Gaming Series motherboards from MSI which came with a Killer E2200 NIC and an Intel Wireless AC adapter.
The Gigabit Ethernet connectivity (Killer E2205) with WLAN (WiFi 802.11ac Killer 1525) you can achieve a bandwidth of up to 1.866 Gbps with low latency, very useful for streaming as fashionable as the Gigabit Ethernet network can have the focus when playing DOTA /LOL. While on WiFi you can upload content to Twitch real time, thus ensuring the lowest latency possible.
MSI has not disclosed the price of MSI X99S Gaming 9, but we can expect that It would be more than $399.
P.S: The Wireless Killer interface is not more than $50.
