A steady flow of reviews of our top tier Z68 gaming motherboard, the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 2, is now starting to trickle through the webosphere. NinjaLane are one of the first out of the blocks with an in-depth review article from Dennis Garcia. We’re proud to see the product was very well received, accepting a maximum 5 out of 5 score on the site. Here’s a sample of what Dennis had to say:
“Gaming motherboards come in all shapes and sizes and in most cases aren't designed for a specific purpose since the categorization is generally a segmentation decision made by the mobo maker. In fact you can "game" on any motherboard but, if you want to get the most from your gaming system you'll likely need to pay extra for expensive add-ons such as high-end audio cards and fast network adaptors.
Onboard sound is handled by the custom designed sound card powered by the Creative CA20K2 Digital Audio Processor. As of this review the custom Creative DAP has given us the best audio specifications of any system we have tested. Ethernet connectivity is enhanced by the Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 NPU.
Both of these onboard systems represent a hardware solution to offload network and audio processing that would otherwise consume CPU cycles. That additional power can then be put back into your game to smooth gameplay and enhance your overall experience.”
