Redefining the Desktop PC
Challenging the essence of how we define a desktop PC, GIGABYTE engineers have developed an ultra compact PC with a brushed aluminum surface 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.
Intel® ThunderboltT 3 Controller, Opening a World of New Possibilities
The new ThunderboltT 3 protocol, which is available over a USB Type-CT connector on the back panel of the GIGABYTE BRIX T models, brings an unprecedented single-wire bandwidth of up to 40 Gb/s -- twice more than the previous generation of Thunderbolt! This incredible increase in bandwidth is also accompanied with support for different protocols such as DisplayPort 1.2, which is able to drive a 4K resolution display at 60 FPS, and USB 3.1, also backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, opening up a world of new possibilities. Additionally, Thunderbolt 3 over USB Type-C has the ability to daisy-chain up to 6 devices, helping you to declutter your desktop and have a true one-cable solution.
With support for HDMI and DisplayPort, the BRIX can power two displays simultaneously, making a perfect choice as a high productivity PC in professional and home environments, or in any number of industrial and commercial multi-display applications.
Flexible Compact PC Kit
The BRIX is sold as a DIY PC kit, shipping with a NGFF M.2 Wi-Fi module pre-installed, plus a power adapter and cable conforming to local standards. Requiring only system memory and M.2 SSD, the BRIX gives users the flexibility to independently choose integrated storage and system memory size, without the trouble of sourcing components that are not widely available on the retail market.
Extreme Intel® USB 3.1 Controller
GIGABYTE introduces the fast 10Gb/s USB3.1 Gen2 protocol to its BRIX units over the new reversible USB Type-CT port. Powered by the Intel® USB 3.1 controller which utilizes 4 PCIe Gen 3 lanes, the GIGABYTE BRIX Type-CT port is presented with a wide and uncompromised bandwidth to reach the limits of the USB 3.1 protocol and make back-ups or file transfers a quick operation, Additionally, USB 3.1 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 3.0 making the GIGABYTE BRIX a versatile and widely compatible small form factor PC over a wider range of devices.
Connecting the Future - USB Type-CT: The World's Next Universal Connector
Reversible Dual USB Type-CT with USB 3.1
The USB Type-CT is a new reversible connector that is loaded with useful features such as USB 3.1 support for 10 Gb/s transfer speed. Powered by the Intel® USB 3.1 controller, this little port provides the best USB Type-CT experience possible.

USB 3.0 and Network Connectivity
GIGABYTE BRIXT also includes a M.2 module offering IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi and the latest Bluetooth 4.2, providing connectivity for low power Bluetooth devices and peripherals, as well as allowing users to easily connect mobile devices.
Bundled with a VESA bracket, the BRIX can easily be mounted behind a monitor or HDTV making it discreetly hidden from view. This makes it simple and effective way to turn any VESA-compliant display or TV into a full-featured PC or digital signage unit.
2.5" SATA Hard Drive Support
Utilizing SATA III 6Gb/s high speed data transfer technology, the GIGABYTE BRIX s supports the installation of one 2.5" SATA hard drive and one M.2 SSD module. This allows for optimized storage configurations which combine fast SSD performance with larger capacity hard drives.
