Gigabyte Releases Extensive 9-Series G1 Gaming Motherboard Collection

In order to support the latest Haswell refresh central processing units from Intel, and the upcoming Devil's Canyon high-end, unlocked K chips, Gigabyte has launched its G1 Gaming motherboards based on the Intel Z97/H97 Chipset.

There are thirteen of them in total, from mini-ITX to full-ATX. Some of them have surfaced before, others have only got hinted at, but they should all be selling now. Here's the list:

  • Z97X-Gaming G1 WIFI-BK
  • Z97X-Gaming G1
  • Z97X-Gaming GT
  • G1.Sniper Z97
  • Z97X-Gaming 7
  • Z97X-Gaming 5
  • G1.Sniper Z6
  • G1.Sniper H6
  • Z97X-Gaming 3
  • Z97MX-Gaming 5
  • H97M-Gaming 3
  • Z97N-Gaming 5
  • H97-Gaming 3

The special microsite dedicated by Gigabyte to this line has all the relevant data on them, but some things bear mentioning: “extreme” multi-GPU support (on the larger mainboards at least), M.2 onboard SSD support, SATA Express (for 700-800 MB/s HDD/SSD performance), AMP-UP Audio Technology, gold-plated audio and HDMI connectors, Gigabit LAN, black solid capacitors (last for 10 thousand hours) and UEFI Dual BIOS.

Some mainboards may lack one or more of these features, but it's a rare thing. Gigabyte wanted for even the mini-ITX motherboards to support gaming, so it made it happen. And since gaming hardware is high-end hardware, price is not as great a concern as on the mid-range segment, so the company could afford to add some other perks, not all of which were specified in the list above.
