Microstar International, a top maker of mainboards, showcased its first mainboard based on ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 chipset, one of the world’s first core-logic sets with PCI Express interconnection designed for AMD Athlon 64 family of processors.

Besides, the MS-7093 is among the first PCI Express platforms for microprocessors from Advanced Micro Devices.

The sample micro-ATX mainboard intended for showcasing is equipped with 4 slots for PC3200, PCI Express x16 slot, 3 PCI slots, 4 Serial ATA-150 ports with RAID capabilities, 2 Parallel ATA-133 connectors, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet, FireWire, USB 2.0, built-in AC’97 audio and so on.
