Challenging the essence of how we define a desktop PC, GIGABYTE engineers have developed an ultra-compact PC with pure black stylish chassis design. Ideal for a broad range of computing applications at home or in the office, the BRIX expounds sheer simplicity and convenience. With a broad choice of processors covering the entire performance spectrum, the BRIX sets a new standard for desktop miniaturization that makes it perfect as a discreet HTPC/multimedia hub, an ultra-low power PC for the family, an office PC or as a digital signage unit. The new U-series SKU extends these benefits by delivering increased productivity and performance scaling for demanding compute-intensive projects. With dual-core U-series, 10th Gen has already delivered intelligent performance, stunning entertainment, and the best connectivity. The USB Type-C is a new reversible connector that is loaded with useful features such as USB 3.2 Gen2 support for 10 Gb/s transfer speed. HDMI 2.0, which is backward compatible with HDMI 1.4, offers 18 Gb/s of bandwidth – nearly twice that of the previous generation. GIGABYTE BRIX provides a 128-bit memory controller that supports DDR4 at up to 2400MHz. DDR4 is a type of synchronous dynamic random-access memory with a double data rate and high bandwidth interface. The primary advantages of DDR4 over its predecessor, DDR3, include higher module density and lower voltage requirements, coupled with higher data rate transfer speeds. Different applications may have unique requirements for the working environments; therefore, the systems must remain stable under every possible condition. With the wide temperature range GIGABYTE BRIX offers, it ensures the stability and reliability in the operating environment from 0°C to 50°C. GIGABYTE BRIX is equipped with 1 x COM Port to support RS232, it can be easily used in a variety of commercial applications, such as Security system, Vending machine, ATM system, KIOSK, and so on. The new add-on card provides you expansion options by offering two extra RJ45 ports; one is dedicated for Ethernet use, the other functions as RS-232 signals receiver. It hugely increases the flexibility and functionality to adapt to various applications. Combined with different I/O shields, this compact BRIX system offers unlimited possibilities!
