2x Copper PCB
GIGABYTE's exclusive 2X Copper PCBs design provides sufficient power trace paths between components. It handles greater-than-normal power loads and removes heat from the critical CPU power delivery area. This is essential to ensure the motherboard is able to handle the increased power loading that is necessary when overclocking.

GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards feature OPT fan support: an additional CPU fan pin header can be used to connect a water pump, and is configured for continuous full-speed operation. The OPT Fan is also useful for high-performance coolers employing two fans.

Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200
GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards feature the Killer E2200 from Qualcomm Atheros, a high-performance, adaptive gigabit Ethernet controller that offers better online gaming and media performance compared to standard solutions. The Killer™ E2200 features Advanced Stream Detect technology, which identifies and prioritizes all network traffic to ensure important applications that require high-speed connectivity are prioritized over less important traffic.

Gamers can also use the Killer Network Manager, which allows custom prioritization for all network applications.You can increase or decrease the bandwidth each application uses, or block an application entirely, all in a unique graphical interface.

GIGABYTE On/Off Charge 2
GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology is revised and upgraded on all GIGABYTE 8 Series motherboards. It provides comprehensive and enhanced charging support for a broad range of devices, including those that run both iOS and Android. Users can enjoy fast AC charging over USB on mobile devices, even when the PC is turned off.

GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards are the world's first to feature an onboard OP-AMP socket. This allows enthusiasts to swap out the motherboard's onboard operational amplifier (OP-AMP) and explore personal audio preferences using a range of nuanced OP-AMPs. GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards feature an amplifier upgrade kit that includes a pair of specialized Operational Amplifiers, and an IC Extractor for easy installation. Additional amplifiers can be purchased separately to further expand audio capabilities.

Three Different Op-AMPs

Creative Sound Core3D
GIGABYTE 8 Series G1-Killer motherboards feature a dedicated Sound Core3D audio processor from Creative. This multi-core sound and voice processor offers high-performance hardware audio processing, with cutting-edge audio technologies including the SoundBlaster software suite.

Nichicon High-End Audio Capacitors
GIGABYTE 8 Series G1-Killer motherboards use the highest quality Nichicon MUSE ES series and MW series Bi-Polarized audio capacitors at each channel layout. These professional audio capacitors deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects.

Gaming Headphone Amplifier (Front Headphone)
Specially designed for gamers, GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards utilize a high-capacity amplifier which is able to drive 600Ω loads, giving gamers a fuller range of dynamic sound – with crisper details and less distortion – than when using high-quality professional headphones.

Audio Noise Guard
To help protect and insulate the high fidelity Creative Sound Core3D audio processor and onboard amplifiers from electromagnetic interference (EMI), GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards feature an audio noise guard that separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential noise pollution at the PCB level. LED trace path lighting Illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers.

Gold-Plated Audio Hardware

GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards pack top quality gold-plated audio and HDMI connectors for improved connectivity and long-lasting durability. Gold has superb signal conductivity, and will not tarnish over extended periods of use.
