X79 GIGABYTE G1. Assassin 2 Motherboard Revealed


Today we have a special treat for those of you who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our forthcoming X79 series motherboards, with a glimpse of the GIGABYTE G1. Assassin 2 in all its glory; the first G1-Killer series board to support Intel® Core™  processors for the 2011 socket.

As with all GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards, the emphasis is on serious gaming performance, with onboard audio and networking processors that ensure you’re getting the ultimate 3D gaming experience. Bigfoot Networks’ Killer E2100 platform is again present and correct on the G1.Assassin 2 to make sure your pings are as low as possible and provide advanced network  and application management. And as you’d expect, there’s the onboard Creative Soundblaster X-Fi digital audio processor, providing HD audio fidelity akin to that of a high-end discrete add-in sound card.

Surely the most eye-catching feature on the G1.Assassin 2 is the revised and updated ‘Locked and Loaded’ heatsink array. After all, what’s the point of assembling one of the deadliest and fiercest 3D gaming rigs ever, if doesn’t actually look the part?

  1. Can't wait to add this baby to my growing arsenal ;-)

  2. UGH

    Can we have a version for grown-ups please, without the tacky crap?

  3. Lol, try the UD7. We'll post pics in the next couple of weeks as the final products becomes available.

  4. Nice teaser Tim. Can you get me in touch with some marketing person of Gigabyte?

  5. @AFQ, you can also contact me on facebook: Tim Handley

  6. Just the perfect James Bond's board...

  7. Love the slot placement (minus the PCI slot...) and integrated Creative and Bigfoot nics. I don't even mind the "Northbridge" heatsink. But please, the pistol is just tacky; more tacky than even the magazine on the last lot (and it was pretty tacky).
