The "gaming" and "premium" do a decent job but we surely do better "MSI shows AMD how a multiple card setup should be done with a premium gaming bridge and not a poor man's over PCI connection"

I think it looks nice. Would make a nice addition to an MSi rig if it cost less than $20au.

Asus ROG Bridges are currently costing £50-60 here in the UK. I wonder if this will be any cheaper when it hits the shelves.

EVGA popped the cherry, so it's not surprising others will hop on the wagon.

Didn't you read the marketing info, they made the traces extra conductive which obviously makes it go faster. Plus it looks like a racecar.

They know well how frustrated consumers get when they have money to spend on whatever stupid neuronal pill that takes away the pain...

looks pretty nice, but it just a bridge, so the spec will be the same behind the bling-bling cover

Nvidia are still building bridges, when they should get over it and move on.
PCI-e is now!
If they want pretty colors and lights they could make interchangeable GPU shrouds.

Erm maybe to a kid, and even if the design was good the money it cost probably wont be, so that's at least 2/3 crap at best.

And that goes for ones for CF too as we don't want to look like were picking on nVidia now, they might have to call a lawyer to brush it under the carpet.

Look, it looks nice I admit. I would even pay for it if it were like 5 bucks or so. But when 1 of those toys costs 70 Euros....
Seriously, you need to be really stupid for paying that money for something you can get for free...

a kid? last time i checked, there are all these adults (on this forum, even TPU reviewers) trying to color match their mobo+gfx+case+etc.... the kids just want random led colors

the design is 'good' in the sense that it's exactly like the rest of the msi gaming (dragon army, stupid name i know)

there is nothing wrong with offering a piece of optional colored plastic, the same as DIY modders, the same as putting a painting on the wall, the same as changing your OS wallpaper or OS theme

dont forget msi's heavy competition from asus & gigabyte, all 3 of them make mobos+gfx cards+allinones+peripherals, you have to keep giving options & a little show off time in the press to keep the name out there
