MSI announced today two new products: MultiConnect Panel and Voice Genie.
The MultiConnect Panel has a standard 5.25" bezel design to fit in any 5.25" bay on a computer case. It supports Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 3.0 wireless transfer and features an "OC Genie" button for MSI mainboard users to instantly increase system performance with a simple push of a button. In addition, the "Super Charger" on the MultiConnect Panel allows users to charge their smart-phones, tablet PCs, wireless keyboards, and wireless mice via any MSI X79 mainboard.
MSI's "Voice Genie" is a voice control technology that allows owners of specific X79, Z68 and P67 motherboards to start up their systems without the need for keyboard or a mouse. Aside from turning on and off the system, users can even enable and disable OC Genie, open a web browser, run MSI's exclusive Control Center, wake up the system, and set the system to sleep mode all via voice command. Voice Genie comes equipped with two sets of voice recognition and supports up to 8 customized voice commands.
Mainboards supporting the "Voice Genie" feature include all the MSI X79 series products, the Z68-based Z68A-GD80 (B3)/(G3), Z68A-GD65 (B3)/(G3), Z68A-GD55 (B3)/(G3) and Z68A-GD45 (B3)/(G3) as well as the P67-based MSI Big Bang-Marshal (B3).
