Sniper A88X also promises a highest calibre on board audio powered by Nichicon Pro Audio caps, gold audio plated hardware and upgradable on board OP AMP.

The board fits two graphics cards with 8 GB/s PCI Express gen 3 has plenty of ports including a few USB 3.0 ports, DVI, VGA, Ethernet and a golden audio connectors.

The board supports Trinity, Richland as well as soon to come Kaveri APUs, which promises a long life and great future for this interesting board. We are not sure if the board overclocks well, but should be sufficiently good for casual gamers.
