The mosfets are covered by a very small heatsink, and we are not really sure if the final heatsink is going to be as small as this. The board is still in the very same vein as the current 890FXA-GD70, with multiple PCI-E 16X slots and CrossFire X support.
The big question that we have is if the BIOS for this board will be the older, standard BIOS. Or will it in fact utilize the new UEFI type BIOS. Another thing that MSI is doing is utilizing more USB 3.0 ports and controllers than are usually available. Again, this is a very raw engineering board which may or may not be finalized.
While AMD will certainly take a hit this coming first half of the year due to Sandy Bridge, they are not standing still and are preparing the market for the Bulldozer processors due to be coming out before this coming summer.
