Gigabytes has been in the PC Gaming industry for a while, and its Brix brand has been around too, and now, the company is ready to launch a new PC in the series, the BRIX-GZ1DTi7. Although the name of Compact PC is not an exciting one, the PC sure looks like an interesting piece of technology.
The Compact gaming PC has a PS3 Slim like body construction except for a bit weird with glowing LED lights and a green mesh on the top area. There is no sliding BluRay drive on the top, but the device looks a lot like a prop from a science fiction movie.
While the design is weird, it looks like Gigabyte has done a good job in the specs department. The Gigabyte GZ1DTi7 has a sixth generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 240 GB M.2 SSD for OS storage.
In the graphics department, Gigabyte will have two options for customers: Nvidia GeFource GTX 1070 or GTX 1080, both of which should be able to run AAA titles at 4K resolution. There is 1 TB of Hard Drive too.
Gigabyte GZ1DTi7 Specifications:
- Intel 6th Generation Intel Core i7-6700K Processor
- 16GB DDR4 SO-DIMM RAM
- 240GB M.2 SSD
- 5″ 1TB HDD 7200 RPM Hard Drive
- 276x384x128 mm dimensions
- GeForce GTX 1070/1080 8GB Graphics Card
- Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165NGW
- Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2400 Gigabit LAN
- 1 USB Type-C with Support of Thunderbolt 3 or USB3.1
- 1 USB3.1 Type-A Slot
- 3 USB3.0 Type A Slot
While the specifications and connecitivitiy are impressive considering the size of SKUs, Aesthetics of the PC will still play an important role in dicideing if it is a good buy. Gigabyte explains the weird, Mountain Dew inspired design by the cooling mechanism, though; I wonder why PC OEMs are still digging on Mac Pros Trashcan-cylindrical design in 2016.
There are no talks about pricing on the product pages or from Gigabyte yet, but it won’t be long before we get the information from the company.
