Enhanced by GIGABYTE’s design, the new BRIX Extreme 2022 design integrates four display outputs, including HDMI 2.1, USB 4, 2.5G Ethernet, as well as the latest Wi-Fi 6E configuration, creating the most powerful multitasking mini PC with amazing performance and responsiveness for whether it’s gaming or content creation.
12th Generation Intel Core Mobile Processor
The latest 12th Gen Intel Core mobile processors feature 7nm technology, and compared to the previous generation, these new processors deliver a 10% increase in GPU performance, a 24% increase in multi-threaded performance, and do with higher clock rates up to 4.7. GHz. The performance of these new processors is a milestone for the mobile platform. When it comes to benchmarks, SYSMark25 performance scores improve by 14% over 11th Gen CPUs and 28% on CrossMark as well. No more having to compromise between productivity, performance and gaming/video performance.
Compact size, full functionality
The efforts of GIGABYTE’s R&D team enable the new BRIX Extreme with the 12th Generation Intel Core Mobile Processor to pack comprehensive functions into its compact size (44 x 134 x 139mm). The 2.5G Ethernet design combined with Wi-Fi 6E configuration reduces the risk of disconnection while increasing network flexibility. Supporting an integrated TPM module, the new BRIX can provide hardware-level security and system protection by preventing data leakage due to decryption.
Expand capacity for unlimited possibilities
GIGABYTE’s latest BRIX Extreme has two types of versions, a Slim version and a Tall version. The Tall version enables additional storage capacity that allows users to install a 2.5″ SSD/HDD. Additionally, the new upgrade kit includes an I/O expander to add a second LAN connection, an RS232 communication port and an M.2 2280 slot.The kit greatly increases flexibility and functionality to suit various applications.Combined with different I/O outputs, mini-size BRIX systems offer limitless possibilities.Coming with a VESA mount, BRIX can easily be mounted behind a monitor, fulfilling various applications in different fields of industry, commerce or education.
4 x 4K native display outputs with exclusive HDMI 2.1 Ultra HD 8K output
Enhanced by the latest Intel Iris graphics cores, GIGABYTE’s latest BRIX Extreme with 12th Gen Intel Core Mobile Processor improves graphics performance by 10% over the previous generation. The new BRIX Mini PC natively supports four 4K/60P display outputs via two HDMIs, one USB-C DisplayPort and one mini-DP for optimal monitor compatibility. In addition, the new BRIX is equipped with the latest HDMI 2.1 technology. With the new HDMI 2.1 standards, BRIX will deliver up to 8K resolution to your display or TV to expand your imagination with stunning picture quality.
The new GIGABYTE BRIX Extreme 2022 designed for the 12th Gen Intel Core Mobile Processor has more to discover. In the development stage, the foresight was not just to unleash performance, but to do so while running cool and quiet. After performing precision thermal, firmware, hardware design and other tests, the BRIX 2022 has become one of the best performing yet quietest BRIXs.
During testing in the GIGABYTE Sound Lab, this new BRIX 2022 performed at an almost undetectable noise level below 20dB and this low noise level is maintained even when running heavy workloads where the noise level is always less than 30 dB. Additionally, when peak performance is needed, the 12th Gen Intel Core Mobile processor enables boost mode with a TDP of up to 45W and the noise level still reaches 35dB.
This new BRIX Mini PC also inherits GIGABYTE Ultra Durable technology and passes strict checks that provide users with the best integration of ultimate performance, quality and multi-functionality. The BRIX Extreme 2022 will be available in the second quarter of 2022.
