Gigabyte BRIX Gaming GT Breaks Cover With GeForce GTX 1080 Or 1070 Under The Hood

When Gigabyte was making the rounds with its BRIX Gaming UHD small form-factor PC, we were a bit puzzled by the inclusion of the older NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 instead of the (at the time) readily available Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1060 or GTX 1070. Apparently, we just needed to wait a few more months, as Gigabyte just leaked a potent follow-up that will more than likely be officially announced at CES 2017 in Las Vegas.

The BRIX Gaming GT made a brief appearance on Gigabyte’s website before being taking down. However, the product pages were left up long enough for specs and pictures to be scooped up for all to see. Instead of relying on Maxwell-based GPUs, this new SFF PC goes all-in with Pascal, giving gamers the choice of a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080, which should be capable of handling all of your 4K gaming needs.

Running the show is the Skylake-based Core i7-6700K processor, which is the same processor that you’ll find under the hood of the BRIX Gaming UHD. And unlike the BRIX Gaming UHD, which featured two M.2 slots, the BRIX Gaming GT includes an M.2 slot for a 240GB SATA SSD along with space for a 2.5-inch 1TB 7200RPM hard drive (actually, up to two 2.5-inch drives can be accommodated).

Other features include Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165NGW Wi-Fi, Killer E2400 Gigabit NIC, Bluetooth 4.2, one Thunderbolt 3 port, one USB 3.1 port, and two USB 3.0 ports.

Given that the BRIX Gaming GT was leaked before Gigabyte had a chance to flesh out all of its press materials, pricing isn’t currently available. But there will be two SKUs, with the only difference being the inclusion of the GTX 1070 or GTX 1080.
