Gigabyte wrapped up the design of its upcoming G1.Assassin 2 motherboard based in Intel's X79 chipset for Sandy Bridge-E and tossed a bunch of teaser pics on its blog and Facebook page. It's the first G1-Killer series board to support Intel's socket 2011 Core processors, and rather than bring a gun to a knife fight, the G1. Assassin 2 carries a pistol, just in case things get out of hand at your LAN party (don't worry moms and dads, it's just a heatsink).
That isn't the only weapon in the G1.Assassin 2's arsenal. It also wields a Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 NIC with 1GB of dedicated DDR2 memory to shoot down high pings, an onboard Creative Soundblaster X-Fi digital audio processor, three PCI Express x16 slots with CrossFireX and SLI support, 8-phase VRM, SATA 6Gbps support, and other weapons of DIY destruction.
Check out more teaser pics in our photo gallery below, and then tell us what you think about the design.
