Who isn’t familiar with Gigabyte’s Brix system lineup. In the run-up to CES 2017, Gigabyte has unveiled a glimpse of what we can expect from the company next spring. Presenting you, the compact yet powerful, the BRIX gaming PCs.

Gigabyte has added a couple of new compact systems to its roster.  One is the GB-GZ1DTi7-1080-OK-GW and the other is GB-GZ1DTi7-1070-NK-GW. Both of which come with an impressive arsenal of hardware in a chimney-style armature, measuring 276mm x 384mm x 128mm. Though the systems are larger, as compared to the BRIX’s signature design factor, but relatively smaller than other gaming systems, offering similar specifications and power.

Full Specifications:

The GB-GZ1DTi7-1080-OK-GW is built around the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming G1 graphics card, 8GB of GDDR5 memory and a 32GB of DDR4 memory inside.

Whereas the GB-GZ1DTi7-1070-NK-GW runs on the GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming G1 graphics card and half the RAM at 16GB.

Apart from the uniquely crafted chassis, the new BRIX systems are equipped with:

  • An Intel Core i7-6700K quad-core processor.
  • 1TB 2.5 inch 7200 RPM hard drive that accounts to the bulk storage.
  • The 240GB M.2 SSD handles primary storage duties.
  • HDMI.
  • Three USB 3.0 Type-A ports.
  • A USB 3.1 Type-A port.
  • A single USB Type-C port (USB 3.1/Thunderbolt)
  • 5.1 channel audio.
  • Separate mic and headphone jacks.
  • 802.11ac WiFi.
  • GbE LAN (Killer E2400).

Apart from these awesome attributes, the devices are capable of playing at a 4K resolution or with a VR headset. Moreover, they are qualified to be used as portable desktops for multiple gaming and LAN connections.

But no matter how great a man crafted creation might be, it does not come without its own imperfections. Several reviews for the device have suggested the heat buildup may be a problem. This is because the ventilation system of the gaming PCs is cramped inside, largely due to its compact size.

However, apart from a few downsides, it sounds like a good computer in a decently small form factor. So far there is no news on the price specifications or release date for either version. But we promise to keep you updated if anything comes up.
