Build your system on a solid foundation.

The GIGABYTE GA-G1.Sniper A88X Motherboard is packed with absolutely everything you'll need to build an uncompromising, high-performance gaming PC. Based on AMD A88X chipset, it is ready to accommodate the current generation APU in FM2 packaging, and the next generation "Kaveri" in FM2+ packaging. Loaded with advanced audio technologies, maxed out multi-card gaming support, advanced cooling, and a high-quality heatsink design, this unit is the ultimate choice for serious PC gamers.
 

  • newegg USB DAC-UP port and Upgradable Onboard OP-AMP Featuring a gold plated USB 2.0 port, GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP provides clean, noise-free power delivery to your Digital-to-Analog Converter. DACs can be sensitive to fluctuations in power from the other USB ports, which is why GIGABYTE USB DAC-UP takes advantage of an isolated power source that minimizes potential fluctuations and ensures the best audio experience possible. GIGABYTE motherboards are the world’s first to feature an onboard operational amplifier (OP-AMP), allowing users to physically switch out and try different OP-AMPs which offer distinct and nuanced properties that make the audio clearer, punchier and more life-like. Additional OP-AMPs can be purchased separately to further expand audio capabilities.
  • newegg Gain Boost and Nichicon Pro Audio Caps To further optimize the audio experience provided by the onboard OP-AMP, GIGABYTE motherboards also debut Gain Boost. Gain Boost provides onboard switches to select between 2.5x and 6x amplification modes depending on speakers or headphones being used. The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper A88X motherboard uses the highest quality Nichicon High End 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 for professional gamers.
  • newegg Audio Noise Guard and Gold Audio Plated Hardware To help protect and insulate the Realtek ALC898 audio processor and onboard amplifiers from electrostatic interference (ESD), the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper A88X motherboard features an audio noise guard that essentially separates the board’s sensitive analog audio components from potential ESD pollution at the PCB level. LED trace path lighting illuminates to show the separation of the PCB layers. The GIGABYTE G1.Sniper A88X motherboard uses top quality gold plated hardware for improved connectivity and long lasting durability for the USB DAC-UP port and audio connectors. Gold has superb signal conductivity and will not tarnish over extended periods of use. The Realtek ALC898 audio processor is also shielded by a gold-plated cover which eliminates electrostatic interference.
  • newegg GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 4 Plus All New Heat Sink Design - GIGABYTE motherboards feature new heatsink designs that offer uncompromisingly efficient cooling on key areas of the motherboard including the PWM area and chipset. GIGABYTE motherboards offer excellent cooling of the crucial APU power delivery area, ensuring even the most aggressive and extreme configurations will be kept well within optimal thermal parameters. Ultra Performance - GIGABYTE uses All Solid Caps (Capacitors) and Low RDS(on) MOSFETs which are rated to work at higher temperatures to provide a longer lifespan. Ultra Safe - GIGABYTE motherboards feature GIGABYTE DualBIOS, an exclusive technology from GIGABYTE that protects arguably one of your PC's most crucial components, the BIOS. GIGABYTE DualBIOS means that your motherboard has both a 'Main BIOS' and a 'Backup BIOS', making users protected from BIOS failure due to virus attack, hardware malfunction, improper OC settings or power failure during the update process.
  • newegg High ESD protection for USB and LAN (USB3.0 only) GIGABYTE motherboards raise the bar in terms of protecting your system, providing advanced electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for both your Ethernet LAN and USB ports, both common sources of ESD-related failures. Each LAN and USB port is paired with a dedicated protection filter that can withstand high electrostatic discharges, protecting your system from common electrical surges and even direct lighting strikes.
  • newegg One fuse per USB port (USB3.0 only) On GIGABYTE motherboards each USB port has its own dedicated power fuse that prevents unwanted USB port failure, helping to safe guard your important data during transfer.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my gaming needs

Pros: I have owned mine for almost a year now and I love the integrated color scheme. It compliments my green case, led fans, and cold cathode lighting perfectly. 64gb ddr3 RAM capacity (overkill) is awesome. Runs high gaming and video rendering loads much better than I thought for the price I paid. I cant comment on the power surge protection because I run my computer on an UPPS unit, but it sounds as if it would be protected from most common surges in power.

Cons: My only issue is that I had limited processor compatibility. But it wasn't enough to make me take an egg off the rating.

Other Thoughts: Maybe not perfect for everyones color schemes or processor needs, but it was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat at First

Pros: Worked for 3 months. With relatively low stress, no sort of gaming really. Maybe 3 hrs of Bioshock.

Cons: Died on me when I needed it most. Power supply works fine but PC refused to power on. I checked everything it was not a switch issue.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Board

Pros: Works perfectly. Runs my 16GB of AMD Radeon R9 2400MHz ram @ AMP 2400 setting. Have A10 6800k@ 4.4GHz,2x Barracuda 1TB HDDs and 1x 128GB Sandisk Ultra SSD for os(Win7 Pro x64) with a 750w PSU. I use a USB sound card so i haven't used the board's sound system but I'm not worried about it. Transfer speeds from one physical HDD to another is usually 178MBs for large(10s of GBs) files in win7 but much lower in win8.Go figure

Cons: No whining ,grunting, sniveling or squealing here!!

Other Thoughts: Its GREEN...NIIIICE

1 out of 5 eggsUnstable & Problematic

Pros: High expectations... ? I guess it looks cool.

Cons: Can't run AMD Radeon R9 memory at A.M.P. or X.M.P speed (2133mhz) at all, have tried swapping the memory (bought new and retail, tried many configurations) and it just won't operate without locking up. Severe unbearable audio problems (squealing, random pops, constant static when any sounds play) whether I use Windows drivers or the Gigabyte drivers or Realtek drivers.

I'm not even trying to overclock or anything (though they do actually advertise you can - HA!) - I just want my 2133mhz ram to run at 2133mhz and I want the fancy audio they promised, not this unbearable hissy whiny snap-pop squeal constant garbage. I shouldn't have to use a USB sound card on a mobo with a high end sound card as its supposed feature.

Really disappointing.

Other Thoughts: I regret buying this board.

1 out of 5 eggsTry again

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Doesn't work

Other Thoughts: I didnt get this from Newegg, it was sold out when I went to order. I purchased this for a budget gaming PC to build my son for xmas. Well, its 11 days until xmas and this board wont post. I have tried all the various troubleshooting and the board doesn't post, doesn't beep...all it does is power up. I am gonna try again and order one from NE and RMA this other one tomorrow.
