Gigabyte G1 Assassin Review

Crysis Warhead

Gigabyte G1 Assassin

Crysis Warhead

With some trepidation we fired up Crysis Warhead. It's quite surprising to see that although we have an enormous leap in frame-rate with the single card between stock and overclocked, a 26 frame-rate improvement, the difference between the single GTX580 and the SLI system was nowhere as high as we hoped.


Crysis Warhead Enthusiast

Setting Crysis Warhead to levels that would have left Deep Blue gasping for air not long ago, the SLI setup absolutely screams through giving us a monster 68FPS average. There are many things that two cards can give you, but you really do need to push them hard to see the benefits. Clearly the Gigabyte Assassin has absolutely no troubles at all here.

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

Looks fantastic.

As for P67, it's still a viable option for noobs, I hope. Especially if we don't use the S2 ports.Quote

Silly Magazine heatsink (IMHO) or not, this board is indeed a beast and well worth the money, if you can afford it

I missed out on X58 and went strait from 775 and P45 to P67 and 1155 but if I hadn't done that I probably would have gone for this board.Quote
