Gigabyte Technologies has announced that the G1. Assassin motherboard has received the Design and Innovation award from Taiwan External Trade and Development Council (TAITRA), the organizers of Computex 2011, in cooperation with iF International Forum Design. The G1.Assassin motherboard is the first ever motherboard product to be awarded the coveted Design and Innovation award, and was selected as the best example of unique component design, addressing the needs of elite gamers, a growing niche within the PC gaming market.
"At Gigabyte, we are both excited and proud to accept this award as recognition from our peers in the industry for the work we have done in developing the unique G1.Assassin motherboard," commented Richard Chen, VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Gigabyte. "This accolade underlines our commitment to offering elite gamers and system builders the absolute best PC gaming experience possible, delivering unique features you simply cannot find on any other motherboard product."
Featuring several state-of-the-art onboard solutions from industry leaders including Creative and Bigfoot Networks, as well as several unique Gigabyte features, the G1.Assassin motherboard is unlike any current gaming motherboard on the market.
Gigabyte has also equipped the G1. Assassin motherboard with features such as 4-way CrossFireX and 3-SLI to offer strong graphics flexibility and enhancement capability.
The G1. Assassin motherboard is one of the world's only gaming motherboards to feature Creative's top-of-the-line Soundblaster Digital Audio Processor (20K2) onboard with X-Fi Xtreme Fidelity and EAX Advanced HD 5.0 technologies, allowing you to experience sound in your gaming world exactly as you would in real life.
The G1. Assassin motherboard implements the Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 Game Networking Platform directly onboard, utilizing a unique combination of dedicated Network Processing Unit (NPU) and exclusive Game Networking DNA technology. This gives gamers the best possible online gaming experience, bypassing the Windows Network Stack to deliver tremendous speed benefits which allow you to move quicker, shoot faster and win bigger.
The Gigabyte G1-Killer series features a brand new heatpipe that was designed to be as deadly to heat as it looks. By effectively spreading the heat from the critical areas of the motherboard such as the CPU VRM zone and quickly dissipating it, the Gigabyte G1. Assassin remains cool, even when the battle heats up.
