The company has been consistently creating a line of gaming motherboards that focus exclusively on the features that matter the most to gamers. Whether playing First Person Shooters or Real-Time Strategies, GIGABYTE G1™ Gaming motherboards deliver top-notch features that can give gamers the winning edge and deliver a much more realistic and immersive gaming environment than even the latest game consoles.By being first to incorporate industry leading audio, LAN and graphics technologies directly onto the motherboard and providing the highest quality hardware and software to allow gamers to tweak their system performance to the highest levels, GIGABYTE G1™ motherboards are designed for gamers who aren’t satisfied with second best.This fact was endorsed by many of the gamers who excelled in the recent events.

I believe GIGABYTE boards unfailingly provide advantages at every level of gaming. For a competitive gamer like me even a small loss of FPS (frames per second) or some sort of lag would drastically affect the playing capabilities or the quality of streaming. GIGABYTE G1™ motherboards ensure that none of these situations arise.”Endorsing Sen’s views, Bari Naseer Anwar, who represented the first runner up team, Elunes, at the Ragequit Cup, said, “I have three gaming PCs and all of them have GIGABYTE motherboards because I know they come with several features that gamers like me dream about. For example, the exclusive Killer™ Intelligent Networking Platform that automatically detects and steps up game traffic ahead of other network traffic for smoother, lag-free in-game performance; or the latest Sound Blaster software suite that ensures the most powerful audio platform offering premium audio quality, effects and features for gamers. GIGABYTE G1™ motherboards’ exclusive AMP-UP™ Audio Technology includes Triple Upgradable OP-AMPs, the highlight of which is an OP-AMP each for the left and right channels on the rear I/O, and another one, for the front audio jack.”The newly launched GIGABYTE 100 Series G1™ Gaming motherboards feature the world’s first Audio onboard design (which includes the Creative® Sound Core3D™ Quad-Core Audio Processor and Burr-Brown High End 127 dB DAC); and the Killer DoubleShot-X3™ Pro.
