Gigabyte G1.Sniper 3 Review

wPrime 95

As much as we go on about the overclocking, the stock results are probably the most impressive. A second faster in the 32M test and 12 seconds faster in the 1024M place test when compared to the other stock setups. The Sniper 3 is a flier. The stability of the overclock remains in place as even the harsh 1024M test doesn't cause it to flinch.

 

Unigine Heaven 0xAA

Although Unigine is mainly here to demonstrate the underlying performance, rather than that of the GPU, with only a HD7950 in our Sniper 3 setup compared to the HD7970 in the others, there is obviously a GPU performance deficit that even the Sniper 3 can't overcome, although it's still impressive.

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
