The mini-ITX form factor is becoming extremely popular with gamers who will be using a single graphics card because it allows them to build a system with premium components that is small and easy enough to take with them to LAN parties or other events. The problem with mini-ITX motherboards has been that they lack many features that their larger ATX counterparts offer. Well Gigabyte is changing that with their Z170N-Gaming 5 motherboard that has all of the features you would want in a full-size ATX motherboard, but in the tiny mini-ITX form factor. Gigabyte was able to pack in Killer E2200 gaming networking, Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 support, a PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 slot, two USB 3.1 ports (1x Type-C, 1x Type-A), and even 802.11ac dual band wireless. Gigabyte wants this to be the perfect board for gamers building in the mini-ITX form factor. Is it? Let’s take a look and find out!
Gigabyte’s Z170 G1 Gaming series has been very successful thanks in part to the awesome feature set as well as the great color choices and aesthetics. The line is fairly well filled out with board options, but there has been a gap in boards between the G5 and the G7 gaming boards.
We can now welcome the GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z5S and GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z5 gaming motherboards which were announced earlier today by GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd. These motherboards are going to feature the signature GIGABYTE AMP-UP Audio features along with the Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200 networking.
