In depth look at the G1.Assassin by Bjorn3D


Peter Kapas from Bjorn3D reviewed the G1.Assassin gaming motherboard and had some good things to say about the world’s most technically advanced online gaming platform:

I believe the GIGABYTE G1.Assassin motherboard is a fantastic choice for hardcore gamers looking to get the most out of their system by using 3 or 4 video cards. The Killer E2100 NIC should shine over other network cards and onboard network platforms especially at large LAN parties, and the Creative audio implementation with high-quality components will give the gamer an advantage over the competition by hearing everything clearly and precisely.

This motherboard might not be for some. With a price tag of $530, it is definitely not for everyone. For those not planning on running 4 PCI-Express cards in their system, I would suggest the G1.Sniper motherboard (about $450), which comes with extremely similar specifications as the G1.Assassin however, it is an ATX form factor motherboard with up to 3-way CrossFireX and 3-Way SLI support.

He liked it so much that he awarded it the coveted Golden Bear award!



  1. Hi, Tim!

    I have some questions. All of X58's latest beta bios(3TB HDD support) was disappeared. What's the reason? And when will be posted again?

    Wait to your reply. Thank you.

  2. There is a bug in it, I reported it and they removed it from the website.

    I also reported a bug last night with the F2 firmware that shipped with G1.Assassin. I dont know if it was submitted because I havent received a confirmation yet.

    After turning the PC on it hangs for about 4-5 minutes on "Detecting IDE drives". Tried to unplug all drives but nothing changed.

    I solved it temporarily by changing the IDE ports from Auto to Disabled until it's fixed.

  3. It's critical issue! Thanks, Emil.
