First Core-based fanless GIGABYTE BRIX




GIGABYTE finally launches a Kaby Lake fanless BRIX. Powered by the highly capable i3-7100U, the GB-EKi3A-7100 will offer substantial performance gains over its Apollo Lake siblings (although losing the microSD card reader, second HDMI, and second Ethernet port).

It's also slightly larger at 180 x 117 x 36 mm (0.76 liter) and features longer cooling fins for improved thermals (the entire case acts as a heat sink). The barebone is part of GIGABYTE's IoT range but is a full-featured PC once RAM and storage are added.

✓ i3-7100U (15W TDP)
✓ Intel HD Graphics 620
✓ 2 x SO-DIMM DDR4 slots (up to 32GB)
✓ 1 x M.2 slot (2280)

✓ 2 x USB 3.0
