Gigabyte Z68 G1.Sniper 2 Review

AIDA64 CPU Benchmarks

AIDA64 (in v1.80 guise) has the Sniper 2 keeping apace with the rest of the Z68 motherboards we've tested. As we said in the intro the chipset is so bulletproof that variances are slight at best.

 

AIDA64 Memory Benchmarks

Despite running at the same 2133MHz as a lot of our boards the Sniper 2 doesn't quite pump out the same heights as some of the P67 boards in our graph. The Gene-Z has the edge in the Z68 boards, but otherwise the numbers for the Sniper 2 are good.

I really hope that the price of this board will come down and that it is priced so high because it is being marketed as being PCI-E 3 and Ivy Bridge native and that retailers are just charging extra to cash in on it.

The thing is now that we know that all Gigabyte boards are PCI-E 3 compatible with just a simple BIOS update, then that makes the UD7 the better and cheaper board. Ok, so it may not have the sound card and the NIC chip but these have been proven to be not that much of a improvement over standard ones at a lower price anyway, so is it really worth paying the extra for them? No, in my opinion anyway.

It is a good board and it does look good and perform very well but the price is just to high Quote
