Gigabyte G1 Assassin Review

3D Mark

Gigabyte G1 Assassin

3D Mark Vantage

In the Performance test you can see how well the overclock manages to help things along. Really though despite the costings involved the 980X SLI test gives us a frankly jaw-dropping 52000 P-Score. Even with Extreme settings we see a magnificent 28000 which is much higher than many P-Scores we've seen.

 

3D Mark 11

3D Mark 11 is desperately disappointing in that it didn't want to play ball at all with our SLI setup. This isn't an uncommon issue but obviously with two hardcore cards, a fantastic mobo and a mega overclock on the CPU we were hoping to see a result. Fingers crossed Futuremark sort this out quickly.

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
