MSI 970A Gaming Pro Carbon Motherboard Pictured

MSI's drive to "carbonate" its Gaming Pro motherboard lineup is extending to the AMD platform, with the 970A Gaming Pro Carbon. Designed with the latest features available to this platform, this board resembles the 970A Gaming Pro, with the notable exception of faux carbon fiber patterns on the metal stickers heading the chipset and VRM heatsinks. You get quite a few modern features on this AMD 970+SB950 chipset based motherboard, such as dual-channel DDR3-2133 support out of the box, 20 Gb/s M.2 with NVMe support, two USB 3.1 ports (one each of type-A and type-C), and Intel gigabit Ethernet.

6+2, similar to MSI 970 Gaming, even the layout is nearly identical compared to 970 Gaming (except CMOS battery placement and M2 slot) :

Hopefully it's not a sign of Zen being delayed even more.
Beside that it’s a nice looking, but pointless board for a pretty much dead platform.

October. They are trying to get rid of AM3+ stock (Guess 990FX Sold out despite being an Overclocking champ)
