GIGABYTE’s BRIX Gaming mini-PC Packs in an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760

GIGABYTE’s BRIX series of mini-PCs have always had the goal of delivering great performance in a small package, but the latest “BRIX Gaming” model helps take things to the next level. As you can see, the BRIX Gaming PC has green accents, and not surprisingly, that’s because there’s an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card under-the-hood. A GTX 760, no less.
If you take a look at the “Best Playable” page of our recent look at EVGA’s GTX 760 Superclocked, you’ll see that this is a GPU totally capable of handling today’s games at 1080p without issue. In some cases, even 2560×1440 is possible. So to have that much graphics horsepower under the hood of such a small PC is without question impressive. In fact, that makes this a much more capable gaming machine than the current crop of consoles, and it has a much smaller footprint. I had to double-check to make sure this wasn’t the mobile variant of the GTX 760, and it’s not.
In addition to the GPU, the BRIX Gaming PC features Intel’s i5-4200H, a dual-core (4 thread) CPU clocked at 2.8GHz, support for 2 sticks of DDR3L SO-DIMMs, 1x mSATA slot, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, 4x USB 3.0 ports, 1x 1Gbps Ethernet, and a headphone/mic jack. For video connectivity you’ll need to take advantage of mini ports; there are 2x for mini HDMI, and one for DisplayPort.
Like all of GIGABYTE’s BRIX PCs, this one is VESA compatible, and can affix to the back of monitors which support such mounts.
At the moment, we don’t have pricing for the BRIX Gaming PC, or a release date.
