GIGABYTE Brix II: Powerful Gaming PC Packed in a Tiny Box

Posted on the 11 September 2013 by Nrjperera @nrjperera


Take a look at this Gigabyte Brix II gaming PC and think about how ugly your PC looks.

Gigabyte Brix II stands even smaller than an Xbox controller and it has been upgraded with an Intel’s superfast Iris Pro graphics chip and Haswell CPUs. Believe it or not, this tiny  4.5-inch box is capable of running games like Dirt 2 and Crysis 3 pretty smoothly, according to The Verge.

“This new and updated GIGABYTE BRIX builds on the incredible success and popularity of our original compact PC design,” said Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “We’re confident end users will enjoy the improved overall performance that the latest Intel Core processors offer, as well as additional upgrades we have made regarding audio and USB connectivity.”

The upgraded Brix II features four USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI and Mini DisplayPort output, Wi-Fi and a 3.5mm audio jack . Only downside to this device is that you don’t get any memory, an operating system or a hard drive with Brix II. So, you’ll have to get them separately before gaming commence.

GIGABYTE offers these stylish gaming PC in a series of models. However, this particular model will set you back about $499 and will head out by December 2013. So, are you thinking about replacing your ugly PC with a toy like this one?
