Gigabyte X79 G1.Assassin 2
If you were wishing for a new LGA2011 Intel chipset X79 motherboard for Christmas and for an unexplainable reason Santa didn’t get the message, it might have been for the best since you might not have at the chance to consider that Gigabyte has recently released a new “Gamer” motherboard and according to their hype it is supposed to be something special.
We have several X79 motherboards on the bench for testing, so Gigabyte will have their work cut out for them. However, if past performance is any indication then we should be in for a late Christmas treat today.
With their G1.Assassin 2 from their “Gamer” series, Gigabyte hopes to deliver a board which exceeds anything else in the mainstream market and we will be putting this motherboard to the test, both in real-world and some synthetic tests to see if this board can live up to the claims.
