At ECS’s LIVA, LEAD, L337 press event this week in Silicon Valley we were able to go hands on with their LIVA Mini PC Kit. They are dubbing this kit the world’s smallest Windows based Mini PC Kit.
It looks like the NVIDIA-styled Gigabyte BRIX that was spotted at Computex actually is coming out. Gigabyte is calling it the BRIX Gaming and the DIY PC kit will feature professional CPU performance of the Intel Core i5 4200H processor matched with the visually stunning graphics of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760.
The whole idea behind Gigabyte’s BRIX ultra compact PC kit’s are to give you a functional PC with an extremely small form factor. This makes them perfect for a media or internet machine. Their small size means you can put them pretty much anywhere as well. While the BRIX systems have been out for a while the BRIX projector is a newer product that takes a BRIX ultra compact PC Kit and adds a micro-projector for a complete and very cool setup. It is actually quite impressive that Gigabyte has been able to fit a projector right on top of the BRIX, making it not much larger than the normal version. The Gigabyte BRIX Projector that we are taking a look at today is powered by the Intel i3-4010U 1.7GHz processor and Intel HD 4400 graphics. Being that this is a “PC Kit” you will need to install your own DDR3L memory and mSATA drive. Let’s take a look!
