MSI announces its first RD790-based board
MSI today announced its K9A2 Platinum Motherboard based on AMD’s RD790 chipset, officially dubbed the 790FX. The 790FX serves as AMD’s primary single and dual-processor platform and replaces AMD’s antiquated 580X chipset. The new MSI board comes with support for a host of new features, including support for AMD quad-core processors and Crossfire X.
The K9A2 Platinum supports all AM2+ processors, which means it will work with AMD’s upcoming
and dual-core desktop processors. Existing AM2 processors are also supported by the newest board BIOS.
The 790FX also brings 41 PCIe 2.0 lanes to AMD’s AM2+ platform, allowing manufacturers flexibility in the number of PCIe slots integrated on the board. The K9A2 comes with four PCIe 2.0 x16 slots and supports AMD’s Triple-Play Technology. In addition, MSI goes a step further by offering
capability on the mainboard.
As of right now, AMD has not officially launched
. MSI indicates, however, the official debut should take place soon. AMD guidance claims ATI RV670, Phenom and RD790 will
simultaneously launch together next month

Finally I can build a SFF with crossfire without needing a huge power supply.
RD790 NB using less than 10watts.
RV670 using less than 120watts.
Now if AMD can release a high performance CPU that uses less than 50-55 watts and I will be set.
