Sep 16, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd., a manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has announced the next generation GIGABYTE BRIX compact PC kit with new models featuring the fourth 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."
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 company said.
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, the company added.
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. The GIGABYTE BRIX features both Mini DisplayPort and HDMI ports on the rear panel, supporting simultaneous dual display connectivity, making it suited to the work place, education and digital signage scenarios. With 4K resolution fast becoming the next technological milestone in high-definition content delivery, the GIGABYTE BRIX also supports the latest 4K displays via HDMI. The updated GIGABYTE BRIX also provides SPDIF audio connectivity via a front panel connector, useful in Home Theater scenarios that use a A/V receiver, the company reported.
The new GIGABYTE BRIX provides four USB 3.0 ports (2x front plus 2x rear) offering improved connectivity for peripherals, storage devices and more. In addition to including a gigabit ethernet port, the GIGABYTE BRIX also includes a Mini PCIe module offering Wi-Fi b/g/n and the latest Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, which makes the BRIX an ideal solution for connecting low power Bluetooth devices and peripherals, as well as allowing users to connect their mobile devices to their BRIX using freely available remote control Apps to provide mouse and keyboard functionality. Bundled with a VESA bracket, the BRIX can easily be mounted behind a monitor or HDTV making it discreetly hidden from view. This offers a simple and elegant way to turn any VESA-compliant display or TV into a full-featured PC or digital signage unit, the company concluded.
