Digitimes reports that Taiwan-based motherboard maker Gigabyte Technology will announce its new G1-Killer series motherboards at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 targeting the enthusiast gamer market.

Gigabyte’s move is aiming to increase its competitiveness against the company’s major competitor Asustek Computer, which already launched its gaming motherboard product line, Republic of Gamers (ROG), in 2006.

At CES 2011, Gigabyte will launch several Intel P67- and H67-based motherboards including P67M-D2 and P67A-UD3 that feature solid capacitors and the company’s exclusively designed power management software as well as support for USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps.

In addition to Asustek and Gigabyte, ASRock is also set to announce its gaming motherboard product line, the Fatality, with the first product featuring Intel’s P67 platform and priced at NT$9,000 (US$309.65).
