Small, Versatile and Now With Even Better Performance

City of Industry, California, September 6th, 2013 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is proud to announce the next generation GIGABYTE BRIX compact PC kit with new models featuring the latest 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors. The new GIGABYTE BRIX is available in four models, each powered by the latest ‘Haswell’ architecture CPUs, offering improved CPU and graphics performance plus native 4K display support. The new GIGABYTE BRIX also features a front SPDIF jack and expanded USB 3.0 connectivity.

“This new and updated GIGABYTE BRIX builds on the incredible success and popularity of our original compact PC design,” commented Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “We’re confident end users will enjoy the improved overall performance that the latest Intel Core processors offer, as well as additional upgrades we have made regarding audio and USB connectivity.”

GIGABYTE BRIX: The Ultra Compact PC Kit

The updated BRIX from GIGABYTE redefines the desktop PC in terms of miniaturization with a sleek chassis design that sits snugly in the palm of a hand. With compact measurements of only 29.9mm x 107.6mm x 114.4 mm, the BRIX is a uniquely versatile DIY PC kit available with a broad choice of processors covering a range of performance and price points.

The GIGABYTE BRIX doesn’t hold back in terms display connectivity, networking or raw performance, and is ideal for compact HTPC builds, as a standard desktop in the home or office, or in commercial applications such as digital signage.

GIGABYTE designed the BRIX to be smaller and lighter than currently available products, with a stylish glass surface mounted on an anthracite aluminum frame. The BRIX comes complete with a GIGABYTE compact form factor motherboard, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 4.0 module, VESA mounting bracket and power adapter, and requires only an mSATA SSD, SO-DIMM memory and OS.





Four ‘Haswell’ Processor Models

The BRIX is available with a choice of four power-efficient, 4th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. From a simple internet access point, to a discretely hidden multimedia station, the GIGABYTE BRIX offers great flexibility for a wide range of different usage applications.
