The Gigabyte A88X series of motherboards is targeted at the next generation of FM2+ AMD APUs, better known as Kaveri. Users looking to pair the motherboards with existing APUs are in luck as the boards support current generation FM2 Trinity and Richland APUs. A total of seven boards will be released, including the first G1-Killer board to support AMD APUs, the G1.Sniper A88X. The remaining six boards are the F2A88X-UP4, F2A88X-D3H, F2A88X-HD3, F2A88XM-D3H, F2A85XM-DS2, and F2A88XN-WIFI.

The G1.Sniper A88X is the highlight of the new crop of motherboards, with two new audio features. The Gigabyte USB DAC-UP provides a Digital-to-Analog converter and Gain Boost to provide improved sound quality for high end headphones and speakers. The board also has an upgrade able Op-Amp that can be easily replaced with a socket mount to provide users with additional customization options.
