Gigabyte first showed the world the new BRIX Gaming UHD at Computex 2016. At their Summer Press event they were showing it off as well and gave us more details on the unique PC. The BRIX Gaming UHD is an ultra-compact mini PC that is designed for 1080p gaming and running applications in 4K resolution.
When the BRIX Gaming UHD was first announced not all of the details were know, but we have the full specifications now! First there will be two different versions, first is the GB-BNi7HG4-950 which packs in an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, the second is the GB-BNi5HG4-950 which is powered by the Intel Core i5-6300HQ. The processors are the only difference between the two models. Gigabtyte does not plan on releasing a Core i3 model that we know of.
Inside the rest of the compact mini PC is a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950, two DDR4 slots for up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, 1 M.2 slot (2280) for PCIe / SATA storage, and 1 M.2 slot (2280) for PCIe only storage. You have wired and wireless networking, wireless is powered by the Intel 8260 which gives you 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. Wired Gigabit Ethernet is powered by the Intel i219LM.
As far as connections on the unit you have 2 USB 3.1 (Type-A / Type-C), 2 USB 3.0, 3 Mini DisplayPort, 1 HDMI, a Kesington lock port, and power connection. Remember all of this is inside of a unit that is only 2.6L (220 mm x 110 mm x 110 mm). There is also a cool white LED accent bar on the top that lights up when the unit is on.
Gigabyte says the BRIX will retail from $1299 – $1500 and will be available towards the end of the year.
