Gigabyte demonstrates two new gaming motherboards

The famous Taiwanese computer hardware maker Gigabyte has announced two new high-end gaming motherboards. Both company products belong to the gaming G1.Sniper line and are called G1.Sniper Z5S and G1.Sniper Z5.

As expected from a gaming motherboard the two newcomers come with the latest Intel LGA1150 socket and support all current Intel Haswell-based processors. The boards also make use of Intel’s newest Z87 chipset and follow the so-called Ultra Durable 4 Plus guidelines, arriving with improved protection against static electricity, high temperatures, humidity and voltage spikes. Users of the boards will find the high quality Nichicon High-End solid capacitors installed thus getting one more reason for exceptional board quality and durability.

Being members of the same family and coming with similar names the two new Gigabyte boards share most of the hardware installed. Thus both of them come with the common ATX form factor, a 4-phase power supply system, four memory slots for up to 32 GB of DDR3-1600 memory, six SATA 3.0 ports with support for RAID, four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and a special USB 2.0 port with Gigabyte USB DAC-UP technology. In addition the two boards offer Gigabit Ethernet in the form of a Killer E2200 chip by Qualcomm Atheros, Creative Sound Core3D audio, D-Sub/DVI-D/HDMI/PS/2/RJ-45 ports, S/PDIF and five audio jacks.

The G1.Sniper Z5S and G1.Sniper Z5 differ in the slot numbers and types, however. The Z5S comes with three PCI-E x16 slots with support for 3-way CrossFire/2-way SLI and four PCI-E x1 slots, while the Z5 model offers two PCI-E x16 slots with support for 2-way CrossFire, two PCI-E x1 slots and two legacy PCI slots.

The pricing of the boards is still unknown.
