GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 2 Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review

[H] Enthusiast
27 September 2011
  • Summary: The G1.Sniper 2 is another well designed solution from GIGABYTE. Both in stock and overclocked settings, the board delivered solid numbers and performed well. The board design and style was well thought out and targeted squarely at the enthusiast gaming crowd, meant to be shown off in a big windowed case. This is also one of the few board's I've encountered lately that has a usable PCI-Express x1 slot with both PCI-Express x16 video card slots occupied.

GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 2 Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review

27 September 2011
  • Summary: GIGABYE took a different approach with the G1.Sniper 2. This board is a lean, mean, fighting machine. Designed to be a champion, the board leverages key technologies, such as integrated Bigfoot Killer NIC and Creative X-Fi audio, that enable it to adeptly take out its more feature-rich brethren.

  • Conclusion: The G1.Sniper 2 is an excellent board with a lot of innovative features that should make gamers rejoice. These features make excellent additions to any board and we are really surprised to see that GIGABYTE is the only manufacturer to adopt such unique features as they really do make for a great gaming board. Add to that the fact that its ready for 22nm Ivy Bridge processors and PCI-E 3, and we have a board is actually future-proofed to an extent.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper2 Motherboard Review

15 September 2011
  • Conclusion: This is a tough conclusion for me, writing as an enthusiast anyway, as there are some features such as power/reset buttons, that are missing on the board for the true hardcore and extreme overclocker. I have to take a step back and look at this through the eyes of who it is marketed towards, gamers. As an avid gamer, I’m really not certain I can ask for anything more out of a motherboard.

GIGABYTE G1.SNIPER2 Intel Z68 Motherboard Review

Legit Reviews
14 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Earlier this year Legit Reviews was fortunate enough to attend the launch of the GIGABYTE G1 Killer series of motherboards while at CES 2011. This was also just days after the launch of the new Intel Sandy Bridge processors. When GIGABYTE started planning and designing the G1 series of boards, I’m not sure they had an idea of how big of a hit that the LGA1155 series of processors was going to be.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper2 Motherboard Review

8 September 2011
  • Summary: Not only is the Z68X-UD7-B3 a tad cheaper, but it delivers similar performance and overclocking abilities with a more practical configuration in our opinion. For a $360 motherboard, the G1.Sniper2's spec sheet seems underwhelming with a single Ethernet connection, four USB 3.0 ports, one eSATA port and a standard PCI Express expansion slot setup.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper 2 Z68 Motherboard Review

  • Conclusion: As we saw with the X58 Killer-series boards, Gigabyte has been pushing themselves on the innovation and marketing fronts albeit with varying degrees of success. Pushing a “gamer” motherboard tends blur the line between self styled gamers and power users but the Sniper 2’s features reflect its target audience quite well. There are however a few things that may not sit all that well with anyone.
  • Pros: - Built in NIC and soundcard saves space and avoids compatibility issues, - Exceptional sound quality from Creative X-Fi, - Excellent layout, no clearance issues, - OC button works great and is perfect for gamers, - Ivy Bridge and PCI-E 3.0 support, - Solid BIOS, relatively bug free for a brand new board, - Software suite is huge, - SSD caching and Virtu are nice additions
  • Cons: - $360 puts the Sniper 2 among the most expensive 1155 boards, - No UEFI BIOS interface and Touch BIOS doesn’t seem useful, - CMOS jumper could be more accessible
