Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 Review

CineBench

Thanks to the Sniper 3 we finally see the CPU score that we were expecting. The UD5 wasn't very close, the D3H was better, but the Sniper 3 really takes advantage of the power of the i7-3770K. 

 

POV-Ray

The G1.Sniper 3 maintains its excellent record of topping every chart so far, and POV-Ray continues this. At stock it's all very close with none of the motherboards particularly standing out, but again the bulletproof overclock on the Sniper 3 shows it's hand and dominates proceedings.

Love this board, just wish it wasn't so damn expensive. With boards like the GD65 you have to ask if paying over double the price is worth it.Quote

I honestly can't believe how low your volts are for 4.8GHz...Jesus H Christ almighty.

Gigabyte have certainly done something right with this board.

A great review, Tom - looks as though I may have to devote more attention to the Sniper boards from now on.Quote
