Blizzcon is the annual show hosted by Blizzard to show off its products and bring gamers together for exhibitions and professional gaming competitions. At Blizzcon 2013 this past weekend Gigabyte joined the party, revealing its newest motherboard, the G1.Sniper Z87. Blizzcon is an excellent launching point for the hardware as VP of the Motherboard Business Unit Henry Kao said, "The new G1.Sniper Z87 has PC gaming built-in to its DNA, an utterly compelling choice for any high performance PC built with fragging in mind." The board features a number of innovative audio features including a socketed OP-amp that can be upgraded by the user, a digital to analog converter, and a Sound Core3D audio processor from Creative. In addition to the audio components, the G1.Sniper Z87 supports fourth generation Intel Core processors, four DDR3 modules, SLI and CrossFire, and six SATA 6Gb/s connectors.
