Gigabyte G1 Sniper 2 to feature PCI-E Gen 3 and 22nm IvyBridge support



/ 5 years ago

Gigabyte has finished its production sample of the upcoming Gigabyte G1 Sniper motherboard, the high end gaming enthusiast board. It has been designed for the upcoming 22nm socket 1155 IvyBridge processors and also with PCI-E Generation 3 support. The specifications are not concrete but it looks like the specifications are like this:

General

  • Two PCI-E 1X
  • One PCI-E 16X
  • One PCI-E 8X (16X Physical)
  • Two PCI
  • 12 Phase VRM (8+2+2)
  • Z68 Chipset

Back Panel Connectivity

  • 8 Channel Audio
  • Two USB 3.0
  • Seven USB 2.0
  • One e-SATA/USB 2.0 combo
  • PS/2 combo
  • Overclock Button
  • HDMI port

Internal Connectivity

  • Three USB 2.0 Headers
  • One USB 3.0 Header
  • Front Panel Audio header
  • Front panel Overclock Button header
  • Five SATA 3GB/s
  • Four SATA 6GB/s

The board has high quality japanese capacitors, the Bigfoot Killer E2100 Gaming Network Interface Controller and Creative 20K2 integrated audio. The boards will be released when the new IvyBridge processors are released later this year, they will be using the same LGA 1155 socket so it does leave the possibility for current boards to accept the new processors with just a BIOS upgrade but manufacturers have yet to clarify fully on this. However, for the enthusiasts out there a new board to take advantage of PCI-E 3.0 and native 22nm support will be welcomed.

    @eternalchaos where did you get the information on the price? I might take a read…..£360 sounds way too steep for that product…maybe £280-300 would be more like it?

    I actually thought it would be a nice alternative to save from going X58…

    You have to remember that it has a Bigfoot Killer E2100 which costs £50-60 and the Creative 20K2 chip which I think is on the top end creative soundcards OEM – Chips – CA20K2 thats what make this board so pricey Personally I would get the Asrock Fatal1ty Z68 Pro Gen 3

    True, the only thing I disagree with you is that the Killer series has an awesome style IMO 🙂
