Gigabyte shows Brix Skylake UHD at CeBIT 2016

Gigabyte has gained attention in the past few months with its Brix line of mini computers, which offer powerful hardware in small-sized chassis but the company has felt that something was missing in the whole picture. That’s why the Taiwanese company has now unveiled a new Brix computer that is called Brix Skylake UHD.

The new device occupies the niche that lies between the small-sized Brix computers and regular desktop PCs. That’s why the Brix Skylake UHD is larger than all other Brix PCs – it measures 4.3 x 4.3 inches but this time is about 8.6 inches tall. The extra space gained has been put to good use since the Brix Skylake UHD comes with a larger number of features and more hardware power. As you can see from the name the computer is based on an Intel Skylake processor and features NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M graphics, three PCI-E M.2 slots for solid-state drives and other M.2 devices, DDR4 memory slots, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, HDMI and Mini DisplayPort connectors, USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 ports, audio jacks and more. Gigabyte believes that this configuration can handle 4K content so that’s why the device is called Brix Skylake UHD.

There’s no information on when the new computer will be in stores but we doubt it will take too long. Pricing information is also missing.
