Small form factor BRIX family is growing and offers the latest Intel 6th generation Core (Skylake) processors, and now official support for the world’s fastest transfer protocol with Thunderbolt 3 over USB Type-C™ port.
Gigabyte announce the launch of four new models joining the company’s extensive list of Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3 certified devices: the BRIX GB-BSi5T-6200,GB-BSi5HT-6200, GB-BSi7T-6500 and GB-BSi7HT-6500. These new BRIX enter a new category of their own as a powerfully compact high-end PC.
For the most part, the new models have similar specs, but here’s a quick run-down of some key differences:
- GB-BSi5HT-6200: Core i5-6200U processor, support for both an M.2 SSD and a 2.5 inch drive
- GB-BSi5T-6200: Core i5-6200U processor, SSD support only (slimmer case design)
- GB-BSi7HT-6500: Core i7-6500U processor, SSD and 2.5 inch drive support
- GB-BSi7T-6500: Core i7-6500U processor, SSD only
The new Thunderbolt™ 3 protocol, which is available over a USB Type-C™ 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.
