Gigabyte is working on its own version of Intel's Next Unit of Computing platform. This so-called Brix system will offer the same performance as a regular desktop PC, only then in a much smaller chassis. Hardware options include Intel's Celeron 1007U, Core i3-3227U and Core i5-3337U up to the Core i7-3537U. The aluminium enclosure can be equipped with an mSATA SSD and has room for two SODIMM DDR3-1600 memory modules. The compact system also supports multi-monitor setups.
The Brix has dimensions of 115 x 108 x 30 millimetres and weighs just 404 grams. Connectivity includes mini-DisplayPort, HDMI, USB 3.0 and Gigabit LAN. Also part of the feature set are WiFi and a VESA-mount. Gigabyte's Brix system will hit shelves next month, at a still undisclosed price.
