GIGABYTE X79 series motherboards officially launched

The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here, the official X79 series launch. Yes, Today we are launching four X79 motherboards, each with their very own specific flavor. While each of these new boards features a new 3-way digital power engine that uses digital controllers for the processor and dual memory arrays, and pack new GIGABYTE features like 3D Power and the all new 3D BIOS, each board also has specific features that make them perfect for specific kinds of users. Let me me take you on a quick tour of Sandy Bridge-E, GIGABYTE style:

sG1-Assassin 2-B

Arguably the pinnacle of our X79 series is aimed at gamers; hardcore gamers that want the absolute best and most immersive 3D gaming experience possible. Welcome to the GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2 motherboard, the newest addition to our G1-Killer motherboard range. As with all our G1-Killer boards, the G1.Assassin 2 is bedecked with a Creative Digital Audio processor (20K2) which packs X-Fi Xtreme Fideility® and EAX® Advanced HD Audio 5.0 technologies. In terms of networking the G1.Assassin 2 also features the Killer™ E2100 Game Networking Platform for the most optimal online responsiveness and comprehensive control over your network. Also, I should mention 3-way graphics and a unique Killer heat-pipe design!

In terms of squeezing every last ounce of performance out of Intel’s new enthusiast i7 Core processors, we have the GIGABYTE X79-UD7 motherboard which is designed with the help of our in-house Overclocking guru, HiCookie. The X79-UD7 boasts a 24-phase VRM, support for 4-way SLI and CrossfireX plus a bunch of unique features that will help overclockers set new performance records. These features include onboard and back panel buttons that make BIOS adjustment fast and easy, specially chosen POScaps that make board insulation much more effective, DualBIOS chips with a nifty BIOS switcher button, plus additional graphics power via the SATA PSU rails. Truth be told, this is THE Overclocking board for X79 users.
