Gigabyte’s Brix line of computers are compact desktop PCs, and the company has just introduced three new models powered by 11th-gen Intel Core “Tiger Lake” chips.

The new new Gigabyte Brix systems are powered by 28 versions of Intel’s new chips with support for up to Intel Iris Xe graphics, up to 64GB o dual-channel RAM, and multiple storage options.

The little computers should be able to easily drive up to five 4K displays thanks to Gigabyte’s decision to include four HDMI ports as well as a Thunderbolt 4 port.

Gigabyte hasn’t revealed pricing or availability details yet.

There will be at least three versions of the new Gigabyte Brix systems with Intel Tiger Lake at launch:

The differences between the three models are basically the processors. Take the last part of the name and you’ll find the Intel Tiger Lake chip version.

All three versions of the computer ship as barebones systems, which means they ship without memory, storage, or an operating system. But all three models two SODIMM slots for DDR4-3200 memory and support for a hard drive and/or SSDs thanks to:

  • 1 x M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 slot
  • 1 M.2 PCIe x4/SATA slot
  • 1 x SATA III connector

Each model also comes with an Intel AX201 wireless card featuring support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, and each has two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back.

The four display outputs are HDMI 2.0a ports with support for 4K at 60 frames per second, while the Thunderbolt 4 port should be able to drive another display or work with an external graphics dock or other accessories that require high speed throughput.

There are also six USB 3.2 Type-A ports and a 3.5mm mic and headphone jacks on the front fo the computer.

  1. Seriously – what in the world?
    if AMD is not selling renoir chips to retail supposedly because they are working with OEMs – why are damn OEMs barely have any products with it?

  2. This looks like a worthy upgrade to my Skull Canyon NUC (w/ external GTX 1050). If I’m not mistaken, the Intel Xe GPU should be more powerful than a 1050 at the high end. If so, this would definitely be a solid upgrade.

    Where can we even buy these though? It says launched but I haven’t found any retailers with it yet and the official site doesn’t list any official retailers that carry it.

  3. I like the PCIe gen4 m.2 slot, this is something that Ryzen laptop chips don’t have (they just have 16 lanes of gen3). The second m.2 slot is very modern too. I heard rumors that 5000 series ryzen could have 30% better graphics. That would definitely be very competitive.

  4. These look much larger than previous Brix iterations. They look closer to 7″×7″ than 4″x4″.
