For years GIGABYTE has been among the best of the best when it comes to motherboards and other computer components. Today we will have the pleasure of looking at one of their flagship products, the G1.Killer Sniper 5 motherboard. The G1.Sniper 5 is a beast of a board, both in features and size. Before we delve to far into the features, it’s certainly worth mentioning that the G1.Sniper 5, like it’s predecessors carries a pretty steep price tag. Right now you can find the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 5 for as little as $339.99 shipped after a $50 rebate, it’s a hefty price tag but keep in mind this board should be among the best of them!

I'm glad you ran the Rightmark Audio Analyzer test to confirm my suspicions.

Any thoughts about this? Seems like a total marketing department call. "Hey Bob add gold plating on something so we can say we have it."

Doesn't mean anything to me as I don't plug in gold plated video/audio connectors anyway. I've asked Gigabyte if they done any in-depth with and without testing in their Taiwan R&D facility. I'll let you know if they have and if they haven't, then it was likely to be a checkmark feature that sounds good.
