COMPUTEX 2013 is just about to start, but the good folks at TechPowerUp already had a close encounter with one of GIGABYTE’s AMD FM2 motherboard offering, namely the A85X G1.Sniper.

GIGABYTE-A85X-G1.SNIPER-COMPUTEX

Bearing the G1 badge, and actually the first FM2 motherboard to receive the said treatment, the A85X G1.Sniper is a gaming oriented motherboard built for the FM2 platform, and is a surprising addition to the growing line-up of motherboards from GIGABYTE. Details are scarce, but looking at the motherboard alone reveals that it houses a discrete audio chip, has 4 DIMM slots probably supporting 64GB of RAM, and a pair of PCI-E x16 slots.  Connectivity is good too with numerous amounts of SATA ports, and back panel I/O ports.
