GIGABYTE's new 'Gaming GT' PC rocks Kaby Lake, GTX 1080

GIGABYTE's new Gaming GT rocks GTX 1080, Kabe Lake CPU, and more

GIGABYTE is going on the offensive with its Gaming GT PC, a new SFF gaming PC that rocks some ridiculously delicious specifications - normally found in a high-end desktop gaming PC.




We're looking at Intel's Core i7-6700K processor, a GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming graphics card, 32GB of DDR RAM, a 240GB PCIe-based SSD, 1TB mechanical HDD (2.5-inch 7200RPM), plenty of connectivity (Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 Type-C, 5 x USB 3.0, and 1 x USB 3.1 Type-A).




All of this fits into a chassis that is barely bigger than the PS3 console, with an automated exhaust system that AnandTech reports "opens up exhaust flippers at the top of the computer when it needs to cool down the components". The site continues: "The chassis can accommodate any double wide graphics card with a maximum size of 280 mm in length and 41 mm in depth, but nothing too custom with regards heat pipes and backplates because the space is constrained".




GIGABYTE powers the GTX 1080-based Gaming GT system with a 400W PSU, and of course - RGB LEDs on top of it. They can be controlled with GIGABYTE's Ambient LED software.


As for pricing and availability, we know nothing on that yet - but we're sure GIGABYTE will have some big announcements next week at CES.
