Gigabyte G1.Gaming H81 Motherboard Revealed

/ 7 years ago


If you’re on the market for an entry-level micro-ATX motherboard, then today is a good day. The new Gigabyte G1.Gaming may not pack waves of ultra high-end features, but for those on a tighter budget, it packs more than enough features to get a good gaming rig off the ground.

Equipped with the modest H81 chipset, the board is almost identical to the older H81M-WW motherboard. The big changes would be that there’s a second PCIe 2.0 x1 slot instead of a legacy PCI, and the PCH heatsink is a nicer design. The board comes equipped with the ALC892 CODEC for onboard audio, audio-grade electrolytic capacitors and a ground-layer isolation.

It comes equipped with a good quality Intel gigabit Ethernet controller, not the cheaper Realtek ones that are featured on the older H81M-WW motherboard.

There are no details on pricing just yet, but since this board has been stripped back to the bare essentials, we would expect it to be fiercely competitive.
