MSI Pro266 Master-R

Eindhoven, 30 January 2001
Pro266 Master (MS-6366)
MSI(tm) is announcing a new full-featured mainboard product based on VIA®
Pro 266 chipset - the MSI Pro266 Master-R.
The MSI Pro266 Master-R is of ATX form factor, and applies Socket 370 architecture supporting Intel® Celeron(tm) / Pentium® III (FC-PGA) and VIA® Cyrix® III / Samuel processors up to 1GHz and higher.

The MSI Pro266 Master-R mainboard is configured with Via® V-Link architecture, doubling bandwidth between North and South bridge compared to previous chipsets, 1 AGP Pro, 1 CNR (Communication Networking Riser) and 5 PCI slots, providing the greatest flexibility and expandability for add-on devices.

The Pro 266
Master also comes with 2 DIMM sockets plus 3 DDR sockets, able to support up to 3GB of system memory.

The main features of the MSI Pro266 Master-R include:
* Raid support: Promise IDE RAID 0 or 1
* As a hard drive matrix, RAID enables user to integrate several hard drives to form a unit hard drive, providing error correction (error tolerance) of system data and enhance system operation. RAID 1 is for data mirroring; it enables error correction (error tolerance) of system data; while RAID 0 is for striping, whose fast access enhances system operation extensively.

* Fuzzy Logic(tm) 3
* Fuzzy Logic(tm) 3 is an MSI(tm) own developed proprietary software utility that automatically and intelligently adjusts processor and system frequency. By applying Artificial Intelligence, the process of adjusting to the optimum processor and system frequency is accomplished automatically under Windows® working environment. It is also worth mentioning that Fuzzy Logic(tm) 3 will reboot automatically when the system would hang by overclocking.
* Live BIOS(tm)
* Live BIOS(tm) monitors the BIOS releases from MSI's web site, and checks the one on the mainboard. Live BIOS(tm) will automatically download the newest BIOS version and automatically installs it,ensuring an error free BIOS updating process. Live BIOS(tm) provides an automatic and user-friendly interface under Windows® environment.
* D-LED(tm)
* 4 LED light signals represent 16 different troubleshooting functions during boot up. D-LED(tm) tells you the status of the boot up process, so that you can easily find the cause of any possible failure.
* Integrated Audio
* A 3D audio controller is integrated in the chipset, saving the cost of an additional audio card. It supports AC'97 as standard.
* 6 USB Ports
MSI Pro266 Master-R supports 6 USB ports. Besides the two in the rear panel, additional four USB ports can be installed for connection of a wide range of USB devices.
