Hands on with GIGABYTE's new ultra compact PC, the BRIX

Computex Taipei 2013 - We stopped by the GIGABYTE HQ last night to take a look around, and we got to experience some hands on goodness with their latest BRIX PC. What is GIGABYTE BRIX? Check out the video below and find out.

 

 

GIGABYTE's BRIX PC is similar to the Intel NUC, something I personally reviewed a little while back now, but this thing is smaller, lighter and better equipped. Where Intel's NUC was obviously made and built by Intel, this new BRIX has a custom-made motherboard by GIGABYTE. Also running around inside the BRIX is an Intel Core i3-3227U processor, two DDR3 SO-DIMM slots and m-SATA is ready for your storage. Connectivity is something GIGABYTE's BRIX has in spades, sporting both HDMI and DisplayPort output and when it comes to networking, the BRIX has you covered.

We have Gigabit ethernet as well as a Wi-Fi card inside. Filling out the connectivity side of things, we also have two USB 3.0 ports, one on the front and one on the back of the BRIX. We have more images of GIGABYTE's BRIX, which you can check out in the image gallery.
