Like soldiers about to head out into the line of fire, elite gamers know that the equipment they use can mean the difference between getting the frag or being fragged. That is why GIGABYTE has designed the G1-Killer series of motherboards for one purpose, and one purpose only; serious hardcore gaming. Featuring several state-of-the-art onboard solutions from industry leaders including Creative and Bigfoot Networks, as well as several unique GIGABYTE features, the G1-Killer series motherboards are unlike any current gaming motherboard on the market. GIGABYTE has brought out some incredibly big guns to the party, so lock & load soldiers, and get ready to unleash some mass gaming destruction.
Based on the Intel X58+ICH10R Chipset, the G1.Sniper features a locked and loaded heatpipe design, 8 power phase, Dual CPU Power and Driver MOSFETs for the best-in-class system performance and power stability. Onboard Creative’s top-of-the-line Sound Blaster X-Fi Digital Audio Processor with X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity and EAX Advanced HD 5.0 technologies gives you the highest caliber audio experience. The adoption of the Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 Game Networking Platform ensures the best online gaming experience possible without even the slightest drop in system performance or network lag. Equipped with more enthusiast features like 3-way CrossFireX/SLI capabilities, front audio headphone amplifier, and a Front Access Control Panel that offers quick access to two USB 3.0 ports, Power eSATA and Quick Boost overclock button, the G1.Sniper dramatically enhances your game play, giving you super human killer instincts, at least while you game.
Super Sight - 3-way CrossFireX and 3-way SLI Support The ability to see clearly through the fog of war can often tip the balance between the winning or losing force. That is why GIGABYTE has equipped the G1.Sniper with 3x PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots (2x16, 1x8) to offer utmost graphics flexibility and upgradeability. With multiple GPU support, the G1.Sniper motherboard delivers maximum FPS (Frames per Second), allowing gamers to see more clearly, aim faster, and move more quickly.
Super Hearing - Onboard Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Digital Audio Processor (20K2) GIGABYTE has rigged the G1.Sniper with Creative's top-of-the-line Sound Blaster Digital Audio Processor (20K2) onboard with X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity and EAX Advanced HD 5.0 technologies, allowing you to experience sound in your gaming world exactly as you would in real life. Other Super Hearing features include Dolby Digital Live, DTS Connect, built-in front audio headphone amplifier, and Nichicon high-end MUSE ES series and MW series Bi-Polarized audio capacitors at each channel layout. All these innovations deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for professional gamers.
Super Speed - Onboard Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 GIGABYTE seriously addresses online gaming network lag issues by implementing the Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 Game Networking Platform directly onboard the G1.Sniper. Utilizing a unique combination of dedicated Network Processing Unit (NPU) with 1Gb of dedicated DDR2 memory and exclusive Game Networking DNA technology, the Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 Game Networking Platform was designed to give the best online gaming experience possible.
Super Shield - Locked and Loaded Heatpipe and 5 Smart Fan Connectors The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper features a brand new heatpipe that was designed to be as deadly to heat as it looks. By effectively spreading the heat from the critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU VRM zone and quickly dissipating it, the G1.Sniper remains cool, even when the battle heats up. Further helping eliminate heat are the 5 strategically placed Smart Fan pin headers which allow for more precise control of system and CPU fans. Equipped with their own individual thermal sensors, the Smart Fans can be easily controlled via GIGABYTE’s EasyTune 6 utility as well as in the BIOS.
Maximum CPU Power Delivery & Driver MOS FETs Like the pistons and cylinders of a car engine, the design of the motherboard Voltage Regulator Module (VRM), component quality and number of power phases greatly affects motherboard performance. With 8 phase power design, Dual CPU Power and Driver MOSFETs, GIGABYTE G1.Sniper promises to deliver first class system performance and power stability required for elite gaming systems. With only the best quality components and unique design, incorporating Dual Power Switching and Power Phase Boost with Multi-gear Switching, your CPU can enjoy more unadulterated power from the motherboard than from previous motherboards.
DualBIOS 3TB+ HDD Support (Hybrid EFI Technology) Hybrid EFI Technology combines the benefits of GIGABYTE's mature BIOS platform including stability and compatibility with 3rd party products with 3TB+ HDD support from EFI technology. GIGABYTE exclusive DualBIOS technology automatically recovers BIOS data when the main BIOS has crashed or failed. Featuring 2 physical BIOS ROMs integrated onboard, GIGABYTE DualBIOS allows quick and seamless recovery from BIOS damage or failure due to viruses or improper BIOS updating. In addition, GIGABYTE DualBIOS now supports 3TB+ hard drive booting without the need for partitioning, and enables more data storage on a single hard drive.
