GIGABYTE has unveiled their X79-based boards on their Facebook page, and boy do they look good. There's four boards on show, the G1.Assassin 2, X79-UD7, X79-UD5 and finally, the X79-UD3. All four boards feature totally different color schemes with the G1.Assassin 2 sporting a green PCI-e slot look, with that sexy as hell looking chipset heatsink in the shape of a pistol.

Next up is the X79-UD7 that features an orange and black scheme, just in time for Halloween in just under a week! The X79-UD5 features a very nice looking blue and black combination and finally, the X79-UD3 features a gun-metal grey and black combo. All of the boards look very hot indeed.

The boards all sport different looks and specs when compared to their first unveiling at IDF 2011, now featuring Digital PWM's. GIGABYTE are calling it 3-Way Digital Power, 1 CPU Digital PWN, and 2 Memory Digital PWMs. The PWNs in the picture seem to be based on (from what I read on Xtreme Systems) IR/Chil's newest PWM technology as the controllers seem to be VRD12 and VRD 12.5 certified. Interesting time ahead for enthusiasts! Not only do these boards look sweet, but they now use International Rectifier Digital PWM's!
