"(...) To be fair, the price of this board is actually more reasonable that it might first appear. For a start the build quality and component selection is possibly the finest we have seen in our labs to date, no corners have been cut, nothing is missing.
The inclusion of professional grade audio capacitors and multi channel amplifiers ensures that the Gigabyte G1 Assassin will appeal to the audience who are unhappy with ‘run of the mill’ onboard solutions.
