  • GIGABYTE GB-BRI5-8250 AND GB-BRI7-8550 MINIPC SAUCE KABY LAKE-R

    New MiniPC GB-BRi7-8550 and GB-BRi5-8250, the Gigabyte manufacturer integrates Intel Kaby Lake-R chips into small, high performance chassis taking advantage of their low TDP. An interesting step in the life of these machines as Intel seems to want to skip this option.


    The Gigabyte GB-BRi5-8250 and Gigabyte GB-BRi7-8550 respectively ship chips Intel Core i5-8250U and i7-8550U but instead of integrating them with portable solutions, the brand attaches them to its Brix range of MiniPC. An interesting choice because of the skills of these chips in terms of calculation and display with an Intel 620 UHD circuit, but also because they are designed to operate in a very low thermal envelope.

    With 15 watts of TDP, the Kaby Lake-R core provides a great range of uses without requiring monstrous ventilation. Embedded in ultrabooks of less than 15 millimeters thick, they are quite comfortable in a frame 34.4 mm thick. The Brix do not change formulates and remain compact chassis with 11.26 cm wide and 11.94 cm deep. The integration of this type of processor in this type of barebone will allow to make the most of it.

    GB-BRi5-8250 and GB-BRi7-8550

    Brix GB-BRi5-8250 and GB-BRi7-8550 thus offer a lot of common equipment including a double slot SoDIMM DDR4 that will allow the solution to offer up to 64 GB of RAM. The storage, meanwhile, will be through an M.2 2280 PCIe X4 or SATA SSD module. A second PCIe M.2 2230 slot is present but occupied by the Intel AC 3168 wifi card that offers a Bluetooth 4.2 pass.


    Two video outputs are present, an HDMI 2.0a with HDCP 2.2 and a Mini DisplayPort 1.2a still in HDCP 2.2. The machine will be able to output two signals in 4096 x 2304 over 60 Hz.

    The connector has two front USB 3.11 including a Type-C and a jack 3.5 mm combo. Two microphones are visible on both sides of the front panel to control applications to the voice. The start button and located on top, a choice of obvious for who has already used this type of MiniPC in VESA mode behind a screen.

    The rear panel offers video outputs, two additional USB 3.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, power supply and Kensington Lock.

    GB-BRi5H-8250 and GB-BRi7H-8550

    As usual, thicker versions, the GB-BRi5H-8250 and GB-BRi7H-8550 will have the same elements but will add a 2.5 "slot to offer additional SATA III storage.

    GB-BRi5H-8250 and GB-BRi7H-8550

    Gigabyte says that its machines only support Windows 10 64 bits but I guess Linux options will also be possible.

      Libre Computer introduces three products of their CC-series which are form-factor compatible with the Raspberry Pi boards and based on open-market hardware. Depending on the model, these single-board computers (SBCs) offer higher performance, more RAM, and/or more IO while sharing the existing aftermarket parts ecosystem. All three products were featured on crowdfunding and supported by free and open source software (FOSS) like Linux and u-boot.

      As you all probably know, Qualcomm and Microsoft worked together and launched always-on, always-connected Windows 10 mobile PCs powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Arm processor earlier this year.

      Battery life is spectacular, but considering the fairly high price of such devices, many were disappointed by performancewhich in many cases is not much better than much cheaper Intel Apollo Lake laptops.
