Would you like to have a machine that can let you indulge in PC gaming without cluttering up your workspace? Gigabyte has just the thing for you. The company has unveiled the Brix Gaming at Computex 2017 in Taiwan. It’s a mini-PC that doesn’t look all that different from conventional mini-PCs, but it’s meant for gamers, so it has that going for it.

Gigabyte Brix Gaming is small. It’s just 220mm tall and has a footprint of 110x110mm. It seems like a smaller Mac Pro and it has been developed with PC gaming in mind. Customers will get the latest in CPU and GPU technology with this machine.

Gigabyte Brix Gaming can be configured with up to Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors with NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 processors. The “VR” models are meant for driving tethered virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

This goes to show that the Brix Gaming isn’t just for casual gamers. It’s more than capable of enabling users to indulge in virtual reality as well.

Connectivity options include two USB Type-C ports, three USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI 2.0 port, three mini DisplayPorts, dual-band Wi-Fi antennas, and gigabit Ethernet.

Gigabyte is yet to confirm the price and release date for this product so it’s unclear at this point in time when it will hit the market.
