It is quite rare for us to receive a product that actually leaves us with our mouths open mainly because naturally people such as us have seen, used and tested pretty much everything. However today we will be taking a look at such a product and of course as the name of the review states the product in question is the latest Gigabyte accomplishment the X58A based G1.Assassin XL-ATX mainboard.
GIGABYTE was founded in 1986 and started off as a research and development team. Since then not only have they taken the lead in the world's motherboard and graphics accelerator markets but also further expanded their product line to include more diverse digital products such as Notebook and desktop PCs, digital home appliances, networking servers, communications, mobile and handheld devices, servicing every facet of people's lives at home or at work. Up to 2008, GIGABYTE has knitted worldwide networks with 8500 employees in almost every continent to offer the most thorough and timeliest customer cares since they truly believe that delighted customers are the basis for a successful brand. GIGABYTE aims for nothing but excellent. With all their outstanding products and designs they have received numerous professional awards and media recognition. Also worth mentioning is their unmatched record to have 100% of its entry qualified for Taiwan Excellence Award for the 11th year up to 2008.
The G1.Assassin is currently the most complete gaming solution in the market based on the X58A chipset since unlike most X58A based mainboards it packs two impressive built-in features, the Killer 2100 Network Gaming Adapter by BigFoot Networks and the Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium by Creative Labs. Having the best network adapter and the best sound card built-in with your mainboard is not only impressive and useful but also very practical since that also means you are effectively saving 2 PCIex slots which you would need to use for the standalone Killer 2100/ Sound Blaster X-Fi cards. Design is also one of the strong selling points of the G1.Assassin especially for hardcore gamers but letís take a closer look to see exactly what i mean.
