Default Sneak Peak of GIGABYTE’s X79 G1.Assassin 2 Motherboard

Gigabyte has given its fans a sneak peak at its upcoming X79 G1. Assassin 2 Motherboard. At this time, it appears the specifications closely mirror the present Assassin board (Killer NIC, high end integrated sound card, plenty of PCI-E slots, etc) but the Assassin 2 is based around Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge E platform and X79 chipset. We'll be sure to post additional details once they become available.

Seriously, just design a good board. Get rid of this Gimmick crap.

I can just imagine what customs will say when these are shipped cross-border...

I see MSI has released some close-up photos of their X-79 board too. Why doesn't Intel just publish the release date already? It's obviously close with all these little marketing tricks.

Remember, P67 and Z68 boards were previewed months ahead of their initial releases...

Well looks better than EVGA's from what I can see.

Sure that gun-shaped heatsink is pretty gimmicky, but otherwise its a decent looking board IMO. Still only 4 DIMMs though
