As mentioned in the intro, this review is much shorter than our usual, as the board was destined to go right into our GPU test rig (and we don't have performance comparisons at the current time). Instead, this was meant to be a quick look so that we...

and FVThe Assassin 2 at the end of the day is a very interesting board. Gigabyte lowered the price on this board considerably compared to the original without taking away any features. Some might argue that dropping four way SLI support is a con, but...

With its onboard Creative X-Fi audio and Killer network controller, this uniquely flashy motherboard is a great, feature-packed base for a Socket 2011 gaming PC. You'll have to decide for yourself whether the design is tacky or cool....

Gigabyte signe avec cette Assassin2 une carte mère de tout premier ordre. Repoussant encore plus loin le concept "G1" avec cette 2e mouture de l'Assasin, le constructeur modernise et enrichit encore la fiche technique alors qu'on pensait...

De eerste negen moederborden vallen ons allerminst tegen. Integendeel: je merkt aan alles dat moederbordfabrikanten echt hun best hebben gedaan om stuk voor stuk een goed product af te leveren. Een high-end platform als X79 is iets waarmee je je in de...
