techreport.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: The G1.Sniper 5 is a study in excess on multiple fronts. It supports two-, three-, and four-way CrossFire and SLI graphics configurations, which is a rarity for Haswell boards. It also boasts exotic onboard extras, including one of the most hard-core integrated audio implementations we've seen on a motherboard. Don't forget about the cornucopia of networking options and the extra SATA and USB ports, either.

PC Perspective
3 January 2014

Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5 review

The Guru of 3D
23 December 2013
  • Summary: It is quite amazing to see what Gigabyte brings to the table for roughly 80 EUR. Now granted, if you where planning dual-graphics cards, this is a no-no due to the limitations of the chipset. However, being B75 chipset based this motherboard has everything you need from 6 Gbps SATA ports, USB 3.0 ports and of course an improved and enhanced audio solution that is based on the Realtek ALC 868 codec. But lets not forget the included Gigabit jack.

Onboard Audio Component Overview: Gigabyte G1 Sniper 5

27 November 2013
  • Excerpt: This is only a review of the audio capabilities of the Gigabyte G1 Sniper 5 motherboard based on the Intel Z87 chipset. Unfortunately, our sample board has memory compatibility and intermittent instability issues irrespective of the kits we’ve paired it with and the settings/XMP profiles. It made things worse when Gigabyte India refused to provide another replacement for the chip and/or the motherboard to verify/confirm the issue on the actual sample.

  • Summary: Gosh, the motherboard manufacturers surely went bazerk with the new Series 8 motherboards. The G1.Sniper 5 is a killer alright. The features are just amazing from the Quad SLI support (thanks to an added PLX chip) towards WIFI, the ten 6 Gbps SATA ports the many USB 3.0 ports the enhanced audio solutions. And of course the don't forget about KillerNIC. I remember these PCI card based on that Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200 chip topping over 100 bucks a pop.

Dieser erscheint dann, so vermuten es die Experten, zeitgleich mit dem Prozessoren “Haswell” Refresh. Bis dahin muss noch mit dem momentan aktuellen Z87 Chipsatz im High End Bereich vorlieb genommen werden. Höchste Zeit also, noch eine aktuelle Platine dieses Typus zu testen.
  • Cons: Das GIGABYTE G1 Sniper 5 ist nun schon längere Zeit am Markt, sodass man ein ausgereiftes Produkt erwarten darf. Dies ist auch der Fall. Das BIOS macht eine solide Figur, das Mainboard lief immer stabil während des Tests.
