According to my inquiry here:
http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,2849.0.html
today,more details appear as new series will launch at CES 2011 a brand new line of motherboards that target specifically the extreme gaming segment, thus competing directly with Asus' own ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboards.
Unofficial will be three models atm:
X58-G1,X58-G2 and X58-G3.
Later,will be released also for Sandy Brigde series.

Thanks runn3R

I did read ex58's answer but wasn't sure if it was just conjecture or official.

They certainly look the business!

I like the magazine style heatsinks for the Southbridge.

Ya they are kinda nice looking overall.   I don't like the green though, but since P67 has came out the black is starting to grow on me.  The gun barrel on the mosfets looks cool too.

I hope to see 1366 replacement boards come out in black, with baby blue memory/PCIE slots like the ones they are using now.

Funny, we all thought the magazine heatsink was the NB :)

I can't see the differences between the Guerrilla and the Sniper, can you?
