Gigabyte is preparing to launch a new BRIX mini-PC equipped with an Intel Core i5 Haswell CPU and Nvidia GeForce graphics.
Two Gigabyte AMD-powered Brix systems are now available in the US with prices starting at $260, scaling up based on specs.
The entry-level model (barebones) Gigabyte GB-BXA8-5545 is powered by AMD's A8-5545M Richland processor paired with Radeon HD 8510G graphics.
Although they aren't much larger than a DVD drive, Gigabyte's BRIX line of mini-desktops are full-fledged PCs equipped with either Intel or AMD processors.
Mini PC's are all the rage these days and Asus doesn't want to left out of the fun. Yes, the industry heavyweight recently showcased its slick little ViVoPC at Computex 2013 in Taiwan and just released an official spec sheet.
The uber-mini Gigabyte Brix measures approximately 4.5″ x 4.2″ x 1.2″, with future versions of the device expected to offer support for either an AMD Kabini SoC or Intel Haswell chip (Core i3 - Core i7), along with 16GB of RAM and an mSATA SSD.
Intel is reportedly pushing a new all-in-one PC concept in an effort to boost sales and finally make AIOs mainstream.
We last discussed Intel's uber-mini Next Unit of Computing or NUC back in November, when Santa Clara first unveiled the $300 x86-powered system with a Core i3 processor and integrated HD 4000 graphics.
This past weekend I built myself a new Windows 8 desktop computer and loaded up Microsoft's Office 13 preview.
A company called Gigabyte has reportedly come up with a laptop computer that weighs less than any other computer of its kind.
Intel's Thunderbolt transfer protocol will reportedly hit PCs in mid-2012, as Santa Clara plans to "fully release" the high-speed I/O in April.
Not all motherboards are created equal; just like not all shoes are created equal. And
Gigabyte's new G1.Assassin series can perhaps be compared to the Christian Louboutin high heels of the motherboard industry - substituting the red sole for a rather more gun inspired, killing theme, of course.
