New Gigabyte Brix mini PCs with Kaby Lake processors and Thunderbolt 3
From gigabyte we have the announcement of its new mini PC models in the range Gigabyte Brix with processor 7th Gen Intel Kaby Lake. These new teams also haveof a connector Thunderbolt 3 that gives us a very high bandwidth as we saw in the previous model with a KabyLake processor that we analyzed recently, in addition, these new mini PCs integrate a series of interesting additions that we will now describe.
In these models of Gigabyte Brix we find the same processors that we have seen in the models without Thunderbolt 3, on the one hand we have the processor Core i5-7200U and in the high range the model Core i7-7500U. These models integrate a GPU Intel HD Graphics 620 With 24EU at a speed of 1GHz, this GPU has video output HDMI 2.0with support for Display Port 1.2 which gives us video output [email protected] and also has video hardware acceleration for codecs h.265 Y VP9. In the rear area we have a VESA compatible anchor with 75×75 and 100×100 mm measurements.
in the new Gigabyte Brix Kaby Lake with Thunderbolt 3 as always we have two versions with different box formats, one low where we can only mount SSD type M.2 compatible with Intel Optane and another tall model where we can also mount a 2.5-inch drive. As a novelty in this model we find two front microphones that allow us to use Cortana and the voice start system. As for connectors in these models we have four front USB 3.0, in the rear a USB 2.0 port and another USB 3.1 Type-C with transfer speed up to 40GBpsGigabit Ethernet port, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.2 and inside we have two SODIMM DDR4 memory slots up to 2133 MHz.
These models will be available in various configurations, with operating system, memory and storage included but also others in which we will only have barebones in stores like Amazon.co.uk at a price of approximately €500. We have three variants depending on the size of the box and the processor, the compact models are the GB-BKi5T2-7200 and GB-BKi7T2-7500 while the model that allows mounting a 2.5-inch drive is GB-BKi7HT2-7500.
