We put this board through our grueling battery of tests to validate the board's performance promises. The MSI Z77A-G45 Thunderbolt can be found at your favorite retailer for the reasonable price of $169.99.
Conclusion: MSI has taken the solid groundwork laid down by the Z77A-G45 motherboard and used it as the preferred choice when releasing a Thunderbolt-equipped version. Now bumping up all graphics slots to PCIe 3.0 and substituting the G45's DVI output for Thunderbolt, the appropriately named Z77A-G45 Thunderbolt uses the goodness present in the latest Intel 7-series chipsets to solid effect.
