MSI ha lanciato la motherboard P45-D8 Memory Lover. Basata sul chipset Intel P45 Express, la nuova P45-D8 supporta i processori Intel Core 2 Extreme e Quad con FSB fino a 1600MHz e i Core 2 Duo. Tuttavia, la caratteristica più interessante di questa scheda è la dotazione di 8 slot per la memoria RAM, in grado di ospitare, in maniera mutuamente esclusiva, fino a 16GB di RAM DDR2, mediante l'utilizzo di 4 DIMM, oppure fino a 8GB di DDR3, ancora una volta distribuiti su 4 DIMM.
La P45-D8 Memory Lover rende disponibili inoltre uno slot PCI Express 2.0 x16, un sottosistema audio HD a 8 canali ed un sofisticato sistema di raffreddamento che fa uso di una heat-pipe che stabilizza termicamente i componenti chiave del sistema, come i chipset North Bridge e South Bridge.
