MSI has updated it's MSI 790FX-GD70 & 790GX-G65 motherboards with new Winky technology. Now first off, we';ll be giving away 790FX-GD70 motherboard in a complete PC later this week in a competition, and I can already tell you .. these are really lovely motherboards.
Winki boots off an internal flash drive, and offers punters some basic connectivity with Firefox, an IM client, VOIP and a photo viewer. So far MSI is offering Winki on two AM3 boards, the 790GX-G65 and 790FX-GD70, and there's no word on any upcoming Intel products.
Winki provides the user of the mainboard a new convenient feature: after turning on your PC, you can instantly go online, no need to wait for an OS to start up. Since Winki does not rely on any OS, the MSI 790FX-GD70 and 790GX-G65 mainboards can use its MSI's exclusive APS power saving technology while running Winki. Four major Internet services are integrated in Winki: Web page browsing, online chat/instant messaging, online phone calls (VoIP), and fast photo viewing.
