Today, GIGABYTE announced the launch of a new AMD motherboard to their G1-Killer line of high-end gaming motherboards. The new G1 Sniper A88X boasts many of the features we have come to expect from GIGABYTE's legendary green and black premium line of motherboards.
With the ability to support both FM2 Trinity and Richland APUs and the upcoming FM2+ Keveri processors, this new offering is sure to become a hit among the AMD gaming community. Featuring what appears to be two PCIe 3.0 x16 slots, 4 DDR3 DIMM slots, and 6 SATA ports, this motherboard has room for even the most expansive gaming systems.
The most impressive feature, however, lies within its audio configuration. Much like the Intel-based Sniper 5, the G1 Sniper A88X features an upgradable operational amplifier (op-Amp) that allows users to custom tailor their audio output to their specific taste. Additionally, all the USB power connectors are gold plated, with all power sources isolated for a truly noise free environment.
Furthermore, the motherboard's audio circuit features electrostatic shielding between all analog audio components, high-quality Nichion solid capacitors, and a Realtek ALC898 audio processor that is shielded by a gold-plated cover.
