Gigabyte looks set to launch a new addition to its BRIX line of small PCs, with this entry in the Gaming GT series leaking out ahead of a likely CES 2017 unveil.
Spotted by Guru3D, the BRIX GT will be a small form factor PC with the highest of high-end components. We're looking at an Intel Core i7 6700K processor, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, m.2 SSD and HDD storage combinations, USB-C Thunderbolt 3 and either a GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 from NVIDIA. Holy smokes.
This PC box that's a similar size to a console is then going to be capable of not only 4K gaming but fully VR ready. Its design also seems to incorporate an interesting cooling system, with air being sucked in from the bottom.
All-in-all this is a pretty tasty looking small-form PC, and while there's no word on pricing or availability just yet, it's not going to come particularly cheap given the components inside. But if you've been looking for a living room games PC instead of a console, this looks like it'll be worth a shout. We'll be keeping an eye out for more on this when CES comes around next week!
