Gigabyte Brix Pro – mini PCs with Intel Tiger Lake CPUs

Gigabyte has just presented the new mini PC BRIX Pro based on Intel Tiger Lake processors, i.e. 11th generation Core processors with Intel Xe graphics. There will be three models on the market called BSi3-1115G4 equipped with Core i3-1115G4 (2-core / 4-thread, up to 4.10 GHz, 48 Gen12 EU), BSi5-1135G7 with Core i5-1135G7 (4-core / 8 -thread, up to 4.20 GHz, 80 Gen12 EU) and the most powerful BSi7-1165G7 with Core i7-1165G7 (4-core / 8-thread, up to 4.70 GHz, 96 Gen12 EU).

The TDP of these “Tiger Lake” chips is 28W on all three models. All three models are based on a common 196.2mm x 44.4mm x 140mm (W x H x D) chassis design.

Each BRIX Pro model has DDR4 SO-DIMM memory that supports up to 64 GB of dual channel DDR4-3200 memory; and two M.2-2280 slots, one of which uses PCI-Express 4.0 x4 lanes from the CPU, while the other uses PCI-Express 3.0 x4 and SATA 6Gb / s from the PCH chip. For those looking for additional disk space, an additional SATA 6 Gbps port is available.

BRIX Pro computers offer a full set of connectors, including one Thunderbolt 4 / USB4 port, six USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, four HDMI 2.0a ports. Network options were also not forgotten, including network ports – 2.5 GbE (Intel i225-V controller), 1 GbE (i219-V controller) and 802.11ax WiFi 6 + Bluetooth 5.0 from the Intel AX201 WLAN card. The BSi7-1165G7 model also includes an Infineon TPM module. In the set, apart from the computer itself, there is a 135 W power supply. The prices are not known yet.
