Gigabyte unveils G1.Sniper Skylake Motherboard


Traditionally each motherboard manufacturer had their own unique colour schemes, MSI was blue, ASUS ROG was red and Gigabyte high end motherboard were either Orange or Green. Since then things have changed and almost every motherboard manufacturer has jumped on the ever popular red colour scheme, leaving old favorites like Gigabyte's Green G1.Gaming series missing form Gigabyte's recent motherboard lineup

Gigabyte Green is back! Meet the new Skylake ready Gigabyte G1.Sniper B7 motherboard, though sadly this motherboard will be using Intel's B150 chipset, rather than Intel's flagship Z170 chipset.

As we can see above this motherboard is fairly well equipped for it's intended pricepoint of around $100-120, sporting dual M.2 slots, dual PCI Express 16x length slots and even a SATA Express port. 

Sadly this motherboard will not include any USB 3.1 ports, but that is expected for a motherboard that is this cheap.

While it is sad to see this motherboard not come with Intel's Flagship overclocking chipset it is great to see some green return to Gigabyte's Motherboard lineup. Hopefully we will be seeing higher end versions in the near future.
