Computex 2014 – GIGABYTE Brix NAS
GIGABYTE Brix is a well known and successful Intel NUC series, maybe also because of the fact that GIGABYTE tried all sorts of extra functions and form factors. Of course, you have the standard Brix flavors, but besides that we could see Brix Projector (a Brix that also includes a projector), Brix Pro (a Brix version with Iris Pro graphics for gamers) and so on. Well, at Computex we also had the chance to see a different approach, in the person of GIGABYTE Brix NAS.
GIGABYTE Brix NAS is built around an Intel Core i5 4250U CPU and it has 2 So-DIMM DDR3 slots, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, RJ45 and audio connectors, and also mini HDMI and mini DP outputs. Of course, as the name says it, the most interesting part about GIGABYTE Brix NAS is the fact that it can host up to 4 2.5″ storage units so it can also be used as a network attached storage device.
