The Gigabyte BRIX GB-BXBT-2807 is a tiny desktop computer with a 4.3 Watt, Intel Celeron N2807 Bay Trail processor and Intel HD graphics. It’s not just the 4.5″ x 4.2″ x 2.2″ computer that’s small though: So is the price tag.
The little desktop has 1 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and Gigabite Ethernet, and a mini PCIe card with 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
There’s a single DDR3L 1333 memory card slot and a 2.5 inch drive bay for a hard drive or solid state drive.
Intel’s Celeron 2807 processor is a 22nm, 64-bit chip based on the same architecture as the Atom Bay Trail chips used in laptops and tablets. With a TDP of 4.3W and 3W SDP (Scenario Design Power), the dual-core chip doesn’t use much more power than a typical tablet… but it should offer slightly better performance.
It features Intel HD graphics with a base frequency of 313 MHz and burst frequencies up to 750 MHz, and should be able to handle HD video playback or up to 2 displays.
While the Gigabyte BRIX GB-BXBT-2807 probably won’t have enough power to replace you gaming rig, it could serve as a small media center PC or low-power desktop system. Just bear in mind that while the PC itself costs less than $130, you’ll still need to supply memory, storage, and an operating system, which can drive up the total cost of the system.
