Gigabyte has introduced a new generation of powerful yet small computers in the Brix Extreme box. The extreme designation in this case means not only the latest powerful mobile processors from Intel, but also modern equipment.
Gigabyte Brix Extreme minicomputers with a basic size of 4.4 × 13.4 × 13.9 cm are built on Intel Core 12th generation processors (Alder Lake-P), which have up to 12 cores (4 powerful and 8 energy-efficient cores). The processors also include integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics with up to 96 execution units (EU). The RAM is still DDR-3200 in a two-channel design.
The computers are available in two versions – taller (taller) and thinner (slim), which differ in the possibility of installing another 2.5 “HDD or SSD. Inside, there can also be a fast SSD for PCI Express 4.0 (M.2), there is no Wi -Fi 6E, USB4 (7 USB ports in total), USB-C with Thunderbolt, mini DisplayPort, 2.5 Gb / s Ethernet, TPM 2.0 chip for Windows 11, two HDMI 2.1 outputs (four monitors with resolution can be connected together 4K) and 3.5mm audio output.
The Brix Extreme can be easily attached to the back of the monitor, for example, thanks to VESA support, the adapter is included in the package. Gigabyte also boasts quiet “hydro-cooling”, but it doesn’t reveal exactly what that means.
Computers will go on sale in the second quarter, prices have not been announced yet.
