Over at Gamescom, MSI displayed their latest X99S Gaming 9 AC and X99 SLI Plus black motherboards which will be featured in their X99 lineup consisting of four products. We all love the new X99 chipset even though most of us don’t even have the money to but a system based on the X99 chipset but we should appreciate motherboard makers to deliver new innovations and features in the high-end PC desktop sector.

MSI’s High-End X99S Gaming 9 AC and X99 SLI Plus Black Motherboards Detailed at Gamescom
At the booth, MSI’s Channel Marketing Manager, Dirk Neuneier, displayed and detailed two of the upcoming X99 based motherboards from MSI which include the X99S Gaming 9 AC and the X99 SLI Plus Black. The other two X99 products include the X99S XPOWER AC and a fourth product which is yet to be showcased by MSI and could have to do something with the M-ATX form factor which we saw from EVGA and ASRock recently or the X99 GD65 sample they showcased back at Computex 2014. The X99S Gaming 9 AC is termed as a flagship Gaming board while the XPOWER is the flagship overclocking board. The X99 SLI Plus Black edition which is the perfect aesthetically pleasing board for enthusiasts is termed as a standard design for the X99 platform so it could cost around the $250 US range which makes it a pretty decent entry in the X99 line considering it still packs a ton of features.
