Here is a sneak-peak of features that you can expect to see on the upcoming MSI’s X870 motherboards.

MSI X870 Motherboards Product Features

In this latest generation of motherboards, MSI has unveiled several highly anticipated features, including the all-new “EZ PCIe Release” and “EZ PCIe Clip II.” The EZ PCIe Release enables users to effortlessly remove graphics cards installed in the primary PCIe Gen 5.0 Slot on X870-based motherboards. Meanwhile, the updated EZ PCIe Clip II boasts an improved hooking mechanism, enhancing both removal and installation ease.

EZ PCIe Release

When it comes to graphics cards, their increasing size and weight can strain the motherboard. To address this, MSI has enhanced all its motherboards with three additional anchor points and thicker material used for the slots. This modification enables the PCIe slot to be 121% stronger compare to previous generation PCIe Steel Armor slot. Able to withstand twice the weight of the graphics card, ensuring stability and reliability without any concerns.

Introducing MSI’s second generation of EZ M.2 Clip II, making installation and removal of M.2 SSD storage easier than ever. Featuring a new Screwless design, removal is effortless with a simple squeeze of the side latch to open the Screwless M.2 Frozr entirely. Installing is just as straightforward – a simple push locks the M.2 SSD in place, while removal requires only a slight pull to the left.

As newer devices continue to advance in speed, MSI’s motherboards are also receiving an upgrade. All X870 motherboards are equipped with Lightning PCIe Gen 5.0 and M.2 slots, maximizing the bandwidth potential of modern devices. Additionally, a USB 4 connector is now standard on all MSI X870 motherboards, supporting speeds of up to 40GB/s.
