AMD Renoir is coming to Mini-PCs
Gigabyte will soon refresh its BRIX Mini-PC lineup with AMD Renoir SoC featuring Zen2 core architecture. A product tease has been posted on Gigabyte’s micro-site with a very brief description of the next-generation AMD BRIX.
The manufacturer has already released its Intel Tiger Lake BRIX series featuring Core i3-1115G, Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1165G7. Those Mini-PCs feature PCIe Express 4.0, WiFi 6 and Thunderbolt 4. Gigabyte also offers BRIX featuring AMD Ryzen Embedded V1000 series of System-on-the-Chips, though it’s worth noting that AMD recently announced the V2000 series (based on Zen2).
Gigabyte will be updatings its AMD Brix lineup from the Raven Ridge series, which are almost two years old now. The upcoming Renoir devices will receive an upgrade on almost all fronts, including WiFi 6 and 2.5GB Ethernet connection. Up to 4 displays offering 4K resolution will be supported thanks to AMD Renoir built-in Vega graphics. The main upgrade will of course be the compute performance coming with 8 cores and 16 threads offered with the top Ryzen 4000U processors.
Gigabyte will offer two versions of the new BRIBX series, including Tall and Slim versions. Those devices might be a very interesting choice for Home Theater PCs, mostly due to powerful graphics and fast Ethernet connection.
