Gigabyte BRIX Extreme systems are characterized by offering the latest generation hardware and elements. Many users bet on these systems not only because of their power, but also because of their mounting system. In addition, they offer great connectivity, an aspect that is also highly important.
Gigabyte BRIX Extreme, a powerful compact computer
The first element that stands out from these new systems is the processor. These BRIX Extreme 2022 are based on the Intel Core processors 12th Generation, specifically in the mobile variants. Some processors with heterogeneous cores based on the 10nm manufacturing process. Although no core configurations have been revealed, it has been revealed that they will have frequencies of up to 4.7GHz.
It does not include dedicated graphics, it is based on the graphics integrated in these processors. Specifically, it makes use of Intel Iris Xe graphics, which offer very good performance in gaming. This iGPU has 96 Execution Units, amply capable of running DirectX 12 games smoothly.
Additionally, this Gigabyte system supports DDR4 RAMs with a frequency of 3200MHz and support for Dual Channel. This system also has support for a PCIe 4.0 interface M.2 2280 drive. It also has an integrated TPM module, which offers security at the hardware level.
We have two versions of these Gigabyte BRIX Extreme 2022, one called Slim and the other called Tall. This second version, the Tall, is somewhat higher to be able to install a 2.5-inch SSD/HDD unit.
A high quality-price solution
The system developed by Gigabyte has two HDMI, a USB-C DisplayPort port and a mini-DisplayPort. Note that one of the HDMI ports is of type HDMI 2.1. What this connector allows us is video output of resolution up to 8K on a monitor or on a television.

Gigabyte has also made these BRIX Extreme 2022 have the best possible performance with the lowest possible noise level. For processors with a TDP of up to 45W, a noise level of up to 35dB is obtained. Something that has been achieved by optimizing the system’s cooling system.
