The Gigabyte G1.Sniper B6 uses a modest 8 phase CPU VRM (voltage regulation) design, has 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS connectors, four SATA 6 Gbps ports and two SATA 3 Gbps ports. It also features a Realtek ALC1150 Audio CODEC (110 dBA SNR) and Nichicon audiophile-grade electrolytic capacitors on the AMP stage. Yup, again this is supposed to be a budget series chipset. Gigabyte also fits the board with a pair of PCI Express 3.0 slots – one is connected straight to the CPU and supports x16 graphics cards.
