    Do you know what I am reading into that G1.Sniper board? It is a full sized ATX board with a PCIe layout aimed squarely at using discrete GPUs.

    AMD's mobile chips would make great laptops cheaper and cheap laptops better, but they are almost exclusively shoved into ugly bargain-basement boxes.


    It will take more than a great product at a good price...

    Actually, there's nothing new about that, not even for Gigabyte. There's already an FM2 board by them with 3 PCI-E 16x slots (albeit 1 runs at 8X and one at 4X).

    There also have been plenty of uATX boards with 2 PCI-E 16x slots, both FM1 and FM2 socket boards.


    So even from that perspective, giving it the G1-name, means that the CPU part of Kaveri would be quite outstanding. Why else justify the G1-name, when you can just throw the more common UD-tag to higher end boards.

    Life, it all of a sudden comes back to you and you have no clue who it is.

    True enough I suppose. OEMs and component suppliers do seem to have almost boundless stupidity when it comes to making exciting new products people might actually want to buy.

    Take those Gigabyte Kaveri boards for example...not a single mini-ITX amongst them.

    Seriously ???

    Meh, AMD can only lead the Donkeys to water, it is indeed up to them to start drinking.
    To find the right answers you must ask the right questions.

    Gigabyte generally launches the mini-ITX boards a bit later. They did so with current FM2 too. So don't read too much in that straight away.

    I thought reviews were showing that AMD's new driver has guaranteed 0 runt frames, which is better than nvidia.

    The recent drivers addressed runt frames with crossfire (GPU+GPU), but not dual graphics(APU+GPU).

    Yes, you are right. I mixed up the naming.
