MSI announces that our brand new AMD high-end motherboards are on a shelf, together with the launch of the new 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors and TRX40 chipset. The new 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors adopt 7nm architecture which supports the latest PCIe 4.0 technology and provide advanced performance with memory frequency and capacity. It is noticeable that the previous X399 motherboards are not compatible with the 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors. Therefore, MSI is well-prepared with three TRX40 motherboards for various use, including Creator TRX40, TRX40 PRO 10G and TRX40 PRO WIFI to satisfy any type of users.
To meet the most demanding requirements for content creation processes, Creator TRX40 motherboard is well-designed in every respect. In terms of design, the concept follows the craft of “crystal.” The crystal design reflects the light magically with millions of color effects. Creator TRX40 also features the best hardware design for maximum performance and long-lasting operation.
Total Thermal Solution
To make sure that Creator TRX40 can maximize the performance of the most high-end AMD processors, thermal design is definitely an important issue. Creator TRX40 is built with a well-constructed aluminum design, enlarging heatsink size that contains more surface to cool down CPU, extended heat-pipe and a stacked Fin Array to maximize the heat dissipation effect with steady aircurrent and enlarge the radiating area. For chipset thermal design, Frozr Heatsink includes double ball bearings patented fan with Propeller Blade Technology to generate more airflow and guarantees durability. Furthermore, all three M.2 slots are covered with double side M.2 Shield Frozr to avoid throttling of M.2 devices.
Lightning Gen 4 Solution
Featuring the latest PCIe 4.0 technology, the Lightning Gen 4 solution provides the fastest PCI-E data transfer bandwidth with 64GB/s. PCIe 4.0 also ensures both backward and forward compatibility with older and newer specifications. To carry the increasingly heavier graphics card, PCI-E Steel Armor supports more weight with extra soldier points and prevents electromagnetic interference. Creator TRX40 is equipped with triple Lightning Gen 4 M.2 slots, which is the fastest onboard storage solution to offer up to 64 Gb/s transfer speed.
Direct Digital Power Design with Core Boost Technology
Creator TRX40 motherboard is built with an aggressive VRM design. For heavy processor loading operation, 16 phases 70A digital power guarantees precise and undistorted power delivery to the processor and high power carrying capacity. Double 8-pin power connectors offers stable power supply to avoid shutdown or other serious issues. Core Boost has been an MSI iconic technology for CPU power transmission system. The optimized circuit design retains the high quality power delivery components in certain area to deliver accurate current.
Latest Network Solution
Demanding creators and prosumers must be very concerned about network solution. Creator TRX40 is equipped with Dual LAN including a 10G Super LAN. 10G Super LAN offers up to 10Gbps high-bandwidth and lower latency, in combination with other 10G-supported devices to gain incredible data transfer speed while transferring 4K videos, huge size pictures and other large files. For both Ethernet and Intranet connection, Dual LAN is the best solution to reduce time-wasting operation such as redundancy, teaming, or load balancing. Also, the latest Wi-Fi 6 AX solution supports up to 3x bandwidth and 4x network capacity with two-way MU-MIMO technology for better efficiency.
Maximum USB Ports
Specifically designed for creators, Creator TRX40 is equipped with total 19x USB ports, which means designers do not have to unplug and plug devices all the time due to lack of USB ports. Besides, Creator TRX40 also offers the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 solution. The transfer speed is four times faster than the most common USB 3.2 Gen1 solution. This is a great improvement for designers as they have to spend a lot of time to transfer large data and files. In terms of the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 solution, there are already a number of products out to support USB 3.2 Gen 2×2. For instance, Western Digital recently introduced “WD_BLACK™ P50 Game Drive SSD” that will be coming soon and features USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface, pushing the read speed up to 2000 MB/s.
TRX40 PRO 10G and TRX40 PRO WIFI
For professional and office use, TRX40 PRO 10G and TRX40 PRO WIFI motherboards are designed to satisfy various workflows. Enhanced power design includes 12+3 digital power phases and dual 8 pin EPS-12V power connectors. With MSI extended PWM heatsink, heat-pipe, and Frozr heatsink, the excellent thermal design ensures best heat dissipation effects while running at full speed with high-end processor. Besides, two Lightning Gen 4 M.2 slots are both equipped with M.2 Shield Frozr heatsinks for better protection and prevent throttling.
10G Super LAN Card
Lightning USB 20G, the latest USB solution, is also available on both TRX40 PRO 10G and TRX40 PRO WIFI to provide up to 20 Gbps transfer speed. Dual LAN onboard including 2.5G and Gigabit LAN cannot be ignored for more efficient data transfer and network connection. Specifically, TRX40 PRO 10G offers a 10G Super LAN card with higher bandwidth, higher density and lower latency for large file transfer. TRX40 PRO WIFI, on the other hand, is equipped with Wi-Fi 6 AX solution onboard improves bandwidth and network capacity to 3 times and 4 times respectively with two-way MU-MIMO technology for better wireless connection.
Wi-Fi 6 AX Solution
TRX40 PRO 10G and TRX40 PRO WIFI all have M.2 XPANDER-Z GEN 4 add-on card expands 2x M.2 slots with heatsink and fan for more storage.
