Redefining the Desktop PC
Challenging the essence of how we define a desktop PC, GIGABYTE engineers have developed an ultra compact PC with a brushed aluminum surface chassis design. Ideal for a broad range of computing applications at home or in the office, the BRIX expounds sheer simplicity and convenience. With a broad choice of processors covering the entire performance spectrum, the BRIX sets a new standard for desktop miniaturization that makes it perfect as a discreet HTPC/multimedia hub, an ultra-low power PC for the family, an office PC or as a digital signage unit.
Intel? Thunderbolt? 3 Controller, Opening a World of New Possibilities
The new Thunderbolt? 3 protocol, which is available over a USB Type-C? connector on the back panel of the GIGABYTE BRIX T models, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s -- twice more than the previous generation of Thunderbolt! This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.2, which is able to drive a 4K resolution display at 60 FPS, and USB 3.1, also backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities. Additionally, Thunderbolt 3 over USB Type-C has the ability to daisy-chain up to 6 devices, helping you to declutter your desktop and have a true one-cable solution.
With support for HDMI and DisplayPort, the BRIX can power two displays simultaneously, making a perfect choice as a high productivity PC in professional and home environments, or in any number of industrial and commercial multi-display applications.
Extreme Intel? USB 3.1 Controller
GIGABYTE introduces the fast 10Gb/s USB3.1 Gen2 protocol to its BRIX units over the new reversible USB Type-C? port. Powered by the Intel? USB 3.1 controller which utilizes 4 PCIe Gen 3 lanes, the GIGABYTE BRIX Type-C? port is presented with a wide and uncompromised bandwidth to reach the limits of the USB 3.1 protocol and make back-ups or file transfers a quick operation, Additionally, USB 3.1 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 3.0 making the GIGABYTE BRIX a versatile and widely compatible small form factor PC over a wider range of devices.
