Gigabyte BRIX Mini PCs with Overpowered Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs

Gigabyte seems to be all about gaming and other powerful hardware products at this year's IDF 2013 show.

Currently being held in San Francisco, California, the Intel Developer Forum has become the home of some quite impressive new pieces of technology, and Gigabyte has just unveiled the latest one. And I'm not talking about the certainly impressive Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard, but about the BRIX mini PC. Truthfully, BRIX, as a product line, already existed. What was not available for the mini PCs was the Core i7-4770R CPU. The same goes for the Core i5-4570R processor. Clearly, Gigabyte is aiming high.

The chips have the Intel's Iris Pro 5200 integrated graphics, with LL4 eDRAm cache and 40 execution units, making it twice as good as the iGP in the Core i7-4770 CPU. A single 2.5-inch SSD/HDD can fit inside the case as well, along with a pair of mini PCIe 2.0 cards (one included provides Wi-Fi and Bluetooth). Sadly, the BRIX had to get a bit larger than before to fit everything, and their price isn't exactly low: $500 / €377.
