GIGABYTE BRIX: The most powerful mini PC

GIGABYTE today announced the arrival of the new 2022 BRIX Extreme mini PC series, adopting the latest 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors with Intel's most scalable architecture to deliver superior performance and rise again as the most powerful compact computers on the market today, almost a year after its last update.

These processors dramatically boost performance in the new performance hybrid architecture for outstanding single-threaded and multi-threaded performance, thanks to a new Intel Core design for leading performance.

Furthermore, we will find the new Intel Iris Xe graphics, which take graphics performance and multimedia processing to a new level thanks to its enormous 96 EU (Execution Unit) that allows users to play the latest DirectX 12 Ultimate games in ultra-high configurations.

Furthermore, with great graphics performance and DDR4 memory rates of up to 3200 MHz, these CPUs improve processing performance while minimizing power consumption for a variety of applications such as gaming, everyday chores, and entertainment.

And it is that these 12th generation processors showcase 10nm technology, presenting a 10% boost in GPU performance, a 24% rise in multi-threading capability, and higher clock rates (at 4, 70 GHz) compared to its predecessors, so marking a milestone for the mobile platform.

When it comes to benchmark tests, it's encouraging to see SYSMark 25 performance ratings improve 14 percent when compared to 11th generation processors, as well as CrossMark performance scores improve 28 percent.

The BRIX Extreme 2022 incorporates four display outputs, including HDMI 2.1, USB4, 2.5G Ethernet, and the latest WiFi 6E configuration, and is enhanced by GIGABYTE's distinctive design. Features that enable this small PC to create content, handle high-performance AI acceleration, and provide full 8K media support.

In terms of the remainder of the components, the GIGABYTE BRIX Extreme is available in two sizes: Slim and Tall. The tall variant offers more storage space by allowing customers to insert a 2.5′′ SSD/HDD.

The new upgrade kit also includes an I/O expander for adding a second LAN connection, an RS232 communication port, and an M.2 2280. The kit significantly boosts versatility and capability to suit a wide range of applications.

The mini-sized BRIX systems provide endless possibilities when combined with various I/O outputs. BRIX, when combined with a VESA mount, may be readily mounted behind a display, serving a variety of uses in industry, commerce, and education.

Nonetheless, the new GIGABYTE BRIX Extreme 2022 is not only one of the fastest small PCs in its class but also one of the quietest.

And it is that these new versions operate at a nearly imperceptible sound level of less than 20 dB. Even with severe workloads, the sound level remains below 30 dB.

Furthermore, when next-generation performance is required, the 12th Gen Intel Core Mobile Processor supports boost mode with a TDP of up to 45W while maintaining a maximum of 35dB.
