Gigabyte – A reprieve for the X58 platform

/ 8 years ago

Gigabyte has recently announced at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) a new line of extreme motherboards named the “G1-Killer” for the x58 platform. These motherboards are all aimed at the serious gamer or should I say extremely serious gamer. The real killer of this series is the “G1-Assassin”, pictured below.

This motherboard could win prizes for its design let alone its performance. The Assassin board comes in an enlarged XL-ATX form factor and integrates both a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi digital audio processor and the Bigfoot Killer E2100 Network processing unit. All the boards include 3-way SLI allowing for 4-way cross fire on the Assassin board and 3-way cross fire on the other 2 boards (Named: Sniper and Guerrilla). They all have the capacity for 24GB of 2,200 MHz DDR3 memory and include USB 3, SATA 6Gbps and an array of overclocking features. On a design note, take a look at the Southbridge heatsink and admire the magazine!

The spec sheet below shows you the true power of these lines of boards and show just how much Gigabyte are cramming into these boards:
