features wide band-width, low noise, high slew rate and low
distortion, making it ideal for professional audio usage. In
addition, GIGABYTE has equipped the G1-Killer motherboards
with 4 additional amplifiers onboard for the center/sub woofer,
rear speaker, side surround and line out.
Nichicon Audio Capacitors
The GIGABYTE G1-Killer series motherboards utilize the highest quality Nichicon MUSE ES series and MW series Bi-Polarized audio capacitors at each channel layout. These professional audio capacitors deliver the highest quality sound resolution and sound expansion to create the most realistic sound effects for professional gamers.

Expert marksmen know that having a super fast, hair-trigger response time often makes the difference between making the shot, or missing the target. The same is true for gamers, as even the slightest drop in system performance or network lag to the server can have a seriously negative impact on game play.

Onboard Bigfoot Networks Killer™ E2100 Game
Networking Platform

GIGABYTE is the only motherboard manufacturer to seriously address online gaming network lag issues by implementing the Bigfoot Networks Killer™ E2100 Game Networking Platform directly onboard the G1-Killer series motherboards. Utilizing a unique combination of dedicated Network Processing Unit (NPU) and exclusive Game Networking DNA™ technology, the Bigfoot Networks Killer™ E2100 Game Networking Platform was designed to give the best online gaming experience possible.

Killer™ E2100 Dedicated NPU
Dedicated Network Processing Unit (NPU) with dedicated 1Gb DDR2 memory helps offload network traffic from the CPU, freeing it up to do other important computing tasks.


Killer™ Network Manager

Being equipped with the best armor and protective gear in the field is essential for surviving any battle. The same can be said for a gaming motherboard, as it needs to be tough enough to withstand any challenge an elite gamer can throw at it. With that in mind, GIGABYTE G1-Killer motherboards were designed ruggedly enough to handle even the most deadliest of skirmishes.

Locked and Loaded Heatpipe Design
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, GIGABYTE G1-Killer series motherboards remain cool, even when the battle heats up.
Modeled after common firearms issued to soldiers deployed to warzones including pistol, rifle and ammo magazine, the Locked and Loaded heatpipe design utilizes a unique fluting technology similar to a rifle barrel fluting, which allows for maximum heat dispersion.

*The heat sink consists of three parts created for visual aesthetics and thermal properties and is not intended as a weapon, norcan it be assembled as a firearm.
*The product photos are for reference only. Final product may have slight cosmetic differences.

5 Smart Fan Connectors
Further helping to eliminate heat are the 5 strategically placed Smart Fan pin headers which allow for more precise control of system and CPU fans. Equipped with their own individual thermal sensors, the Smart Fans can be easily controlled via GIGABYTE’s EasyTune™ 6 utility as well as in the BIOS.

Maximum CPU Power Delivery + Driver MOS
Like the pistons and cylinders of a car engine, the design of the motherboard Voltage Regulator Module (VRM), component quality and number of power phases greatly affects motherboard performance. GIGABYTE engineers were first to realize not only the importance of using the best quality components for this critical area, but also that with more power phases there can be more power available to your CPU. G1-Killer series motherboards with their new redesigned VRM, promise to deliver first class system performance and power stability. With only the best quality components and unique design, incorporating Dual Power Switching and Power Phase Boost with Multi-gear Switching, your CPU can enjoy more unadulterated power from the motherboard than from previous motherboards.
* Dual Power Switching requires system to enable GIGABYTE Dynamic Energy Saver program.
