Special Features MSI X38 Diamond
In tradition of the Diamond series, the MSI X38 Diamond has exclusive MSI features as well. The motherboard comes with the SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio card. The onboard audio chip provides the Creative hardware audio codec which fully supports the 24-bit Crystallizer. This technology provides a low CPU utilization when using the audio possibilities which can result to higher frame rates for gaming purposes. Another exclusive feature of the MSI P35 Diamond is the “MSI SkyTel” which allows users to use a common phone set to make internet calls.
