Gigabyte releases G1.Sniper M7 motherboard in North America
Gaming does not always require motherboards that are large in size – sometimes you can find a fully-equipped gaming motherboard that can fit nearly anywhere thanks to its small size. One prime example is Gigabyte’s G1.Sniper M7 motherboard, which was just launched on the North American market.
The board, as the name suggests, belongs to Gigabyte’s G1.Sniper motherboard line and includes a LGA 1151 socket for all current Intel Skylake processors. The board is a microATX solution that does not require a lot of space and includes Intel’s B150 chipset and really cool black and green colors that give the G1.Sniper M7 a distinct look.
The new Gigabyte board has four DDR4-2133 memory slots (up to 64 GB), two PCI-E 3.0 x1 slots, two PCI-E 3.0 x16 slots with support for CrossFireX in x16/x4 configurations, six SATA 3.0 ports, a M.2 slot for SSDs and Wi-Fi cards, SATA Express, Gigabit Ethernet, a 7.1-channeled Realtek ALC1150 sound system, high quality components as well as Japanese capacitors. In the back the board offers a single PS/2 port, four USB 3.0 ports, DVI-D/HDMI/USB DAC-UP/RJ-45 ports, five 3.5-mm Mini-Jack ports and optical S/PDIF.
The price of the motherboard is unknown as of now but given its size, the G1.Sniper M7 should not be too expensive.
