Gigabyte has this week announced during the CES 2015 technology show taking place in Las Vegas that they are updating their Gigabyte BRIX range of desktop mini PCs.
With a range of new Gigabyte BRIX systems that will be equipped with Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Broadwell chips, similar to the Intel NUC range of mini PCs also announced this week.
The latest Gigabyte BRIX systems will feature 802.11ac WiFi, a VESA bracket, 4 x USB 3.0 ports as well as HDMI and Mini DisplayPort connectivity. It is also being reported that the systems will be equipped with Intel Core i7 processors with support for Near Field Communication (NFC).
“The BRIX and BRIX s are set to offer the Core i3-5010U (2.1 GHz, HD 5500 with 23 EUs), the Core i5-5200U (2.2 GHz, HD 5500 with 24 EUs) and the Core i7-5500U (2.4 GHz, HD 5500 with 24 EUs).
Each unit will give HDMI at a native UHD-4K resolution due to the use of Broadwell-U, albeit at 24 Hz which makes it more suited for films, as well as a mini-DisplayPort. Also included is an 802.11ac 2T2R dual band module” explains the Anandtech website.
All three new systems are also expected to be available in a range of different sizes including compact, offering room fro solid state disk (SSD) installation and standard for larger mechanical hard drives.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Gigabyte about the new BRIX systems, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
