Gigabyte's tiny new gaming PC is smaller than an Xbox controller

It used to be difficult to find a computer that could play games and still fit underneath your TV. Now, devices like the Alienware X51, Falcon Northwest Tiki, and Digital Storm Bolt can handily fill that role. But what if you want a gaming PC that can fit in your hand? That's where the Gigabyte Brix II comes in: it's both cute and powerful. (Gigabyte, PC, Tech)

Wow. It's so cute.

People said the Gamecube was "cute" as well.

It was also the Most powerful console of it's generation, more so than the xbox or PS2.

This can't be as bad a OUYA so it has that going for it.

Nothing against the Gamecube, but, no, it wasn't more powerful than the Xbox.

The power hierarchy that generation went like this: Xbox > Gamecube > PS2

Gaming PC in 2007 maybe.

any word on steam box.it has been in silence since 5 or 6 months.
This PC lacks GPU power.

For $700 what kind of gaming PC can you get that can outperform the Xbox one?
Defiantmac  +   715d ago
Is that a joke? Anyone who knows how to build a computer could most likely slaughter the xbox1 and ps4's performances with $700 to spend.
starchild  +   715d ago
We could probably do it with $600 to be honest.

My PC is going to play Battlefield 4 pretty much maxed out and I don't even have to upgrade to beat the PS4 and XB1.

Starchild is right

My pc builds never cost 600 dollars i crossfire mid range cards and have no problem maxing all games. And you may find one game i cant max and that's usually the fault of immature drivers in a month or so the game is running at 80 fps on max at 1080P.

I don't get it either... You pay for the small size of it but frankly who cares if it's twice as big?
EazyDuz22  +   715d ago
Most would. Ps4 on the other hand....

This system is underpowered, meh.

Ya it's cause it so small instead of getting a regular sized desktop or even a laptop part that are more powerful at that price.

Ok if it wus cheaper came with a hdd, os and thunderbolt support for a external video card and 8 gigs of ram and this would b golden. 500 ish and all u get is a cpu and mobo and a small as case. They should not call this a gaming pc because its not.
jeffgoldwin  +   715d ago
Im not sold on thunderbolt ever catching on. It adds alot to the cost. USB 3.0 is plenty fast. (plus it's backward compatible with 2.0).

$200 and you supply your own storage. Not bad, its definatelly at a competitive price. Of course its in no way a power house. It will play current gen games(IE multiplats) at 720p with framerates between 30 and 60, depending on the game. And will play PC enhanced games at medium or low at the same resolution. According to the info available on the specs.

Where the hell does the had drive go?

While I think the 'mini PC/steambox' approach is the future, I don't think they need to be that small. Need good airflow and more features. Would be fine if it were 2 or 3 times bigger.
