Gigabyte has long been a major player in Small Form Factor (SFF) gaming PCs. The BRIX line is known to bring plenty of power in tiny packages. Gigabyte hopes to push SFF gaming PCs further with the latest update to their BRIX line, the BRIX-GZ1DTi7-1070GB GW.

The recently announced BRIX model is a bit bigger than expected for the line, coming in at 38.1 x 25.6 x 12.7 cm (15 x 10.1 x 5 in). The extra space is needed to support the full-sized NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 and the ventilation required to cool the powerful graphics card. In addition, the BRIX will be equipped with an unlocked Core i7-6700K, one of Intel’s top-of-the-line quad-core processors. The PC is also equipped with:

  • 16 GB of RAM
  • 1 TB 7200 RPM HDD
  • 240 GB m.2 SSD
  • 1 USB-C port (with Thunderbolt 3)
  • 1 USB 3.1 Type-A port
  • 5 USB 3.0 Type-A port (2 front-facing)
  • HDMI 2.0
  • Ethernet
  • Headphone/Microphone jack
  • 5.1 Channel audio jacks
  • Intel 3165NGW 802.11 ac WiFi card
  • Killer E2400 gigabit ethernet jack

The ethernet, power-in, and some display and audio ports can be found underneath the device, and Gigabyte has included a cleverly placed notch to route cables behind the machine and connect them to the ports on the underside. An LED strip along the top of the chassis allows for some customization and adds some colorful flair to the PC.

The ventilation system will bring a unique take on heat management. While designed to keep noise low, if component temperatures exceed a certain threshold, the top of the machine has two flaps that will pop open in order to dump excess heat and help with cooling.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced. More information can be found on Gigabyte’s Hong Kong site.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
