Gigabyte adds another mini-PC to its small-sized solutions. This time the company introduces a low-budget Brix GB-Bace-3160 model targeting entry-level users (home/office use). It might be employed to fulfill such routine tasks as file editing, web surfing & multimedia boot. The model boasts a strict all-black design, featuring 114.4x107.6x56.1 mm case dimensions.
Gigabyte Brix GB-Bace-3160 accommodates a 4-core Intel Celeron J3160 CPU (14 nm) that operates at 1.6/2.24 GHz frequency; it is accompanied by an integrated Intel HD Graphics 400 graphics core (320-700 MHz frequency). The PCB houses only a single SO-DIMM slot for the installation of DRR3L-1600 memory.
Storage subsystem is introduced by a single SATA III (6 Gb/sec) port, intended for the incorporation of 2.5-inch SSD/HDD. Audio subsystem is supported by Realtek ALC255 controller. Furthermore, this mini-PC comes with a 4-watt power supply unit.

Gigabyte has gladdened all enthusiasts with the launch of a high-performance video card, entitled GeForce GTX D5X 8G. The new-comer boasts mill overclocking, a modified design & the implementation of a 3-fan cooler. The model comes equipped with Nvidia GP104-400 GPU that offers two operational modes: Gaming & OC. In Gaming mode the core runs at 1607/1733 MHz frequency, while in OC mode it rises up to 1632/1771 MHz frequency.
The GPU is accompanied by 8 GB of GDDR5X memory that operates at an effective index of 10010 MHz. The PCB is perfected by Ultra Durable VGA hardware base with the employment of copper in some layers as well as an enforced power supply subsystem (8+2-phase).
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 D5X 8G accommodates WindForce 3X cooler. It consists of three composite copper heatpipes, a dual-section aluminum heatsink, a backplate, and three fans. It should be noted that when the system loading is insufficient, the cooler goes to the passive mode.
The well-known in IT-maker Company MSI announced about appearance of new videoadapter based on GPU Tahiti XT chipset. Its diversity from the other Radeon HD 7970 can be seen with the naked eye, instead of an air cooler practically the entire surface of the PCB is covered with waterblock brand EK. It differs markedly from the original version, since it is designed specifically for the MSI R7970 Lightning model. Relation of adapter to the Lightning series is easily determined by the inscription at the interface connector PCI-E 3.0 x16, as well as non-standard set of video outputs (2x DVI, 4x Mini DisplayPort) and configuration of additional power connectors (2x PCI-E Power 8-pin).
Obviously, the accelerator is positioned as the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and has a nominal frequency of at least 1050 MHz. Will MSI risk, like Sapphire did, and provide the card with 6 GB of memory? Probably not. The «advanced» composition of the printed circuit board and water block of full coverage …
