Gigabyte Showcases New GB-BSi7 Mini-PCs

Gigabyte keeps on refilling its inventory of Intel Skylake-based solutions with a couple of new mini-PCs: Brix GB-BSi7T-6500 & Brix GB-BSi7HT-6500. The greenhorns are designed on a two-core Intel Core i7-6500U CPU that operates at 2.5/3.1 GHz frequency. The processor is accompanied by Intel HD graphics as well as DDR4-2133 MHz RAM (maximum capacity – 32 GB).

The fundamental difference between the two models lies in the storage layout. The GB-BSi7T-6500 features only M.2 slot for the installation of compatible drives, whereas the GB-BSi7HT-6500 adds one SATA 6 Gb/sec interface for 2.5-inch drive. All other specifications are analogous for the mini-PCs.

Therefore, the new-comers feature a single PCI Express M.2 expansion slot (occupied by Wi-Fi + Bluetooth module), Realtek ALC255 audio controller, Intel I219V gigabit network controller, Intel Dual-Band wireless-AC 3165, and an integrated 90-watt power supply unit. Internal layout allows for the installation of a tiny …

Gigabyte Unleashes a Pair of Brix Mini-PCs for Skylake Platform

Gigabyte keeps on expanding the segment of mini-PCs with its proper Brix solutions. This time the lineup has been replenished with two models: Brix GB-BSCEA-3955 & Brix GB-BSCEHA-3955. The two differ from each other by the height of the case. The first new-comer features 119.4x112.6x34.4 mm dimensions, whereas its companion boasts 119.4x112.6x46.8 mm dimensions. The latter allows for the installation of an additional 2.5-inch drive of 7.0 or 9.5 mm height. Both models are targeting Intel Skylake platforms.

The other characteristics of these mini-PCs are identical. They are based on two-core Intel Celeron 3955U CPUs (14 nm) which operate at 2.0 GHz frequency. Processors cooperate closely with Intel HD Graphics 510 that runs at 300-900 MHz clock frequency. The motherboard PCB (110x105 mm) houses a couple of SO-DIMM slots for DDR4-2133 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB).

Both Brix solutions offer one slot for the installation of M.2 2280 drive and a sole M.2 expansion slot which is …

Toshiba Introduces OCZ VT180 & TR150 2.5-Inch SSDs

As part of the Computex 2016, Toshiba introduced a couple of OCZ-branded 2.5-inch SATA solid-state drives. The OCZ VT180 & the OCZ TR150 are available in four capacities: 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB & 960 GB. The key differentiation between the two models lies in the choice of memory type; the first SSD employs MLC NAND chips, whereas the second item uses TLC NAND chips. The pair also differs by warranty liabilities, offering 5- and 3-year’s limited packages correspondingly.

Toshiba OCZ VT180 employs SATA III interface, featuring 100.45x69.75x7 mm dimensions. Its sequential Read/Write data transfer speed makes up 550/440 MBs across the line. At the same time, random Read/Write specs vary from 85.000-95.000 IOPS/90.000 IOPS respectively. The drive consumes 3.7 W power in active mode, reducing this level to 0.89 W in standby mode.

This model is estimated for 1.500.000 hours of fool-proof operation. Moreover, it supports such advanced technologies as SMART, TRIM and Idle Time …
