Following up on his preview article last week, veteran reviewer Shane Baxtor at TweakTown has now published his full and detailed review of our new gaming behemoth, the GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2. In case you’ve been outdoors occupying financial districts for the last month or so, let me fill you in on what you’ve missed. The GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2 is based on the new Intel X79 chipset, supporting Intel’s new i7 Core (aka Sandy Bridge-E) processors and packs a dedicated Creative Sound chip and Killer Networking from Qualcomm/Atheros. He’s a sample of what Shane had to say on the subject:
“The G1.Assassin 2 is like other G1 boards; performance is strong and the feature set is amazing. For so many people that's exactly what you want from a motherboard. This is going to be a popular board from GIGABYTE for a good reason.
If you're looking for a board that focuses on those features that gamers love like the fantastic onboard networking, excellent onboard audio and one button overclock, this is a really attractive option. Throw in other extras like 802.11n Wireless and Bluetooth 4.0 support and you've just got a board that stands out for all the right reasons.”
