"In retrospect, the decision to skip the P67 ended up probably being the better idea, but I was none the less disappointed at launch because it looked like a strong feature packed board. In the end, though, it doesn't matter now. The G1 series has finally graced the LGA 1155 platform in the form of the G1.Sniper2; a name I'm a little iffy about. It makes sense, but I would've loved to have seen it called the G1.SniperZ to represent the fact that it's based on the Z68 chipset."

"All in all, this mainboard has a ton of advantages, but one pretty serious drawback: all power-saving modes and technologies are disabled in the BIOS by default, which seriously affects not only power consumption but also performance, because in this case Intel Turbo Boost technology is only partially functional. I am sure that the owners of Gigabyte G1.Sniper 2 mainboard will have no problem enabling all of them manually."

"Today we have the newest offering in the GIGABYTE G1.Killer series of motherboards: the G1.Sniper 2. The G1.Sniper 2 is the first LGA1155 motherboard of the G1.Killer line, and carries a Z68 chipset, in addition to many of the features that made the original G1.Killer series popular."
6 Neoseeker
"In this roundup Neoseeker has four motherboards on the chopping block. All of them will be put through the same testing processes and judged accordingly. Running through the gauntlet today is a single motherboard from ASUS, two from Gigabyte and one from Sapphire. Most of the motherboards utilize the Z68 chipset detailed above, while the ASUS motherboard uses the P67 chipset."

"Instead the G1.SNIPER2 uses a discrete level network interface card from Bigfoot Networks integrated directly onto the PCB. The Bigfoot Networks Killer E2100 NIC features a dedicated NPU (Network Processing Unit) with 1GB of dedicated DDR2 memory. The second of two features that stands out on the GIGABYTE G1.SNIPER2 is the audio. The SNIPER 2 takes advantage of a Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Digiatl Audio Processor (20K2)..."

"To give things a bit of a shake-up, Gigabyte decided to release their G1 sniper loose at the Z68 platform and came up with the G1.Sniper 2, which from the off looks simply amazing and gives some very unique features that other boards simply don't have in terms of audio and Gigabit LAN connectivity."
9 TechPowerUp
"Outfitted with a real X-Fi chipset and a KillerNIC E2100 to score maximum kills, Gigabyte\'s latest from the G1.Killer series, the G1.Sniper2, hits TechPowerUp\'s boot camp. Ready to jump into trenches and enter combat, we put the Intel Z68-equipped G1.Sniper2 in the front lines, target in sight."

"The Gigabyte G1.Sniper 2 offers stunning looks, great performance and feature set that is extensive. There are minor points here and there that I think could have been better, but the end result remains simple, it is an astonishing motherboard. Very nice, and as such very much recommended if it suits your budget, a Guru3D top pick no doubt."
11 Hot Hardware
"The G1.Sniper2 comes with a driver/utilities/software disc and a trio of manuals--one for the motherboard in English, a multilingual installation guidebook, and an Intel SRT installation guide. Predictably, it also has a rear I/O panel, a two-way SLI bridge, and a smattering of SATA cables."
