GIGABYTE Launches AMD-powered BRIX Gaming PC
GIGABYTE today launched its latest addition to the GIGABYTE BRIX series of ultra compact PC kits, the GIGABYTE BRIX Gaming.
The compact PS is packing an AMD A8-5557M APU together with an AMD Radeon R9 M275X discrete graphics processor. It is literally small enough to sit in the palm of your hand (measuring a mere 59.6mm x 128mm x 115.4mm) and supports both mSATA SSD and standard 2.5" SATA hard drive installation. The GIGABYTE BRIX Gaming also features both Mini DisplayPort and HDMI ports on the rear panel.
Accompanied by 2GB of GDDR5 memory, the AMD Radeon R9 M275X is a discrete graphics processor that offers 3D gaming and GPU-accelerated application performance. The AMD R9 M275X supports the latest graphics acceleration technologies including Microsoft DX11.1, Shader Model 5.0, OpenGL 4.1. The AMD R9 M275X also supports the latest OpenCL 1.1 standard providing GPU-accelerated performance in general purpose applications.
By employing a discrete, fully programmable GPU, the BRIX Gaming can tackle processor-intensive media editing and encoding applications.
The BRIX Gaming is sold as a DIY PC kit, shipping with a Wi-Fi Mini PCIe module pre-installed, requiring only SO-DIMM system memory and a choice of either, or both mSATA SSD or standard 2.5" hard drives.
In addition to including a Gigabit Ethernet port, the GIGABYTE BRIX Gaming also includes a Mini PCIe module offering IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and the latest Bluetooth 4.0.
