Gigabyte G1 Assassin Review

PC Mark Vantage and CineBench

Gigabyte G1 Assassin

PC Mark Vantage

If ever you're wondering how an SSD can help you generally, the difference between the Bench 950 and the Assassin 950 is largely down to the brilliance of the Kingston SSDs in RAID. The capabilities of the Assassin when overclocked are staggering. Either with the i7-980X or the i7-950 is easily handled by the Gigabyte.


The impressive nature of the overclocking capabilities of the G1.Assassin are revealed starkly by the difference between the stock i7-950 and the overclocked i7-950. This really is a board that delivers as good as it looks.

Great review, nice to see x58 stuff. I'm sick to death of seeing sandy bridge reviews and all its problems. Not sure about the price though seen it on various sites for around £450. Looking forward to seeing reviews of the cheaper Sniper & Guerilla boards.

Love the Assassin build videos watched them all multiple timesQuote

The board is immense so the price fits it quite right. I would have anything against if it would be cheaper so I could replace my ep43 ds3l with it Quote
