Challenging the essence of how we define a desktop PC, GIGABYTE engineers have developed an ultra compact PC with a brushed aluminum surface chassis design. Ideal for a broad range of computing applications at home or in the office, the BRIX expounds sheer simplicity and convenience. With a broad choice of processors covering the entire performance spectrum, the BRIX sets a new standard for desktop miniaturization that makes it perfect as a discreet HTPC/multimedia hub, an ultra-low power PC for the family, an office PC or as a digital signage unit. GIGABYTE BRIX supports 8th Generation Intel Quad-core processors which feature power-efficient 15W Intel Core i5 and i7 models. From a simple internet access point to a high end multimedia station, the GIGABYTE BRIX provides a broad range of usage scenarios and the ultimate space flexibility . Energy efficient Quad-core delivers up to 40% faster performance compared to 7th gen processors! GIGABYTE BRIX offers more computing power than ever with Intel's new 14nm processors, which comes with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. It accelerates processor and graphics performance for peak loads, automatically allowing processor cores to run faster than the rated operating frequency if they're operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits, gives users an extra burst of performance when needed. In addition, the integrated memory controller provides a direct connection between the DDR4 2400MHz memory and the processor for fast data processing. GIGABYTE BRIX also includes a M.2 module offering IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi and the latest Bluetooth 4.2, providing connectivity for low power Bluetooth devices and peripherals, as well as allowing users to easily connect mobile devices. Intel HD Graphics deliver 10% more performance than its predecessor. With the new media engine users are able to, watch, create, edit, share and game all with captivating visuals. This media engine offers HEVC 10-bit hardware acceleration which improves upon the 4K viewing and content creation performance significantly versus previous generation processors.
