Gigabyte launched the new BRIX Extreme mini PC with Ryzen 7 7840U

Gigabyte’s BRIX mini-PC product line is stratified into distinct series based on performance. As the moniker suggests, the BRIX Extreme represents the pinnacle of this range in terms of raw prowess. Drawing from Liliputing‘s report, this series recently witnessed an update, introducing five new models. However, only one variant comes equipped with the Ryzen 7 7840U, while the remaining four are powered by the Ryzen 7030U series.

Of particular interest is the flagship model, GB-BER7-7840. Anchoring this unit is the Ryzen 7 7840U, an 8-core, 16-thread 15W mobile processor, bolstered by the Radeon 780M integrated graphics. It can accommodate two SODIMM modules of DDR5-5600 memory, capping at 64GB, which is the zenith of memory frequency supported amongst the five.

The residual models are fueled by the 15W Ryzen 5 7535U or Ryzen 3 7335U. The memory provisions are slightly diminished, allowing for two SODIMM modules of DDR5-4800, though the ceiling remains at 64GB.

Furthermore, storage compatibilities across these five models display nuances. Certain models merely proffer a single M.2 SSD slot, whereas others extend support to 2.5-inch drives.

Beyond disparities in CPU, memory, and storage, the I/O offerings of these models resonate with a harmonious design: dual HDMI 2.1 ports, a miniDP, and a USB Type-C port boasting DP Alt support. Their USB Type-A port provisions are also rather generous, with specific configurations detailed in the appended specification chart.

Beyond the press releases, Gigabyte has unveiled detailed information pages for each model on their official website. However, they remain circumspect regarding pricing, release dates, and the regional availability of these models.
