to the gigabyte launched This is the new Brix mini PC powered by AMD’s recently released Ryzen 7030 series processors. Highlighting what users of Intel-based Brix systems have been missing, the Taiwanese PC and component maker has produced charts that show new systems are up to 140% faster than previous-generation Brix PCs (with Intel CPUs). is showing.
Gigabyte says it achieves “a blend of minimalism and power” in its new ultra-small mainstream mini-PCs. Indeed, the design is as simple as possible (no need to eliminate convenient ports and vents). These systems are also small, measuring 124 x 120 x 49.7 mm, or 4.8 x 4.7 x 2 inches.
The new Gigabyte Brix features AMD Ryzen 7030 series processors ranging from AMD 7730U (8C / 16T) to AMD 7530U (6C / 12T) to AMD 7330U (4C / 8T). If you recall the announcement of these ‘Barcelo-R’ chips at CES 2023, these mobile APUs are aimed at mainstream thin and light laptop designs. 15-28W TDP is also suitable for mini PCs with moderate active cooling. However, there are more advanced and exciting Ryzen 7000 APUs as these Ryzen 7030 chips are mixed with old Zen 3 CPU cores and Vega graphics.
As you can see from the product specs table above, there are five new Brix models in all.
These aren’t the best AMD Ryzen 7000 mobile chips in terms of technology, but Gigabyte is happy with the improvements they offer compared to previous generation Intel devices. To understand the new AMD Ryzen 7030U series Brix, we ran Cinebench R23 CPU tests and 3DMark GPU tests.

The new Brix powered by AMD leads by 140% in the Cinebench R23 multi-core test. The Ryzen 7730U in these tests features an 8C / 16T CPU core configuration running at up to 4.5 GHz, benefiting from 20 MB cache. The GPU performance test by 3DMark also shows the AMD-powered Brix in the spotlight, showing it to be 130% faster than the previous generation Intel.What were his Brix processors in the best case of previous intel generations these are 10th gen parts especially Core i7-10710U6C/12T, turbo up to 4.7 GHz, 12 MB cache, Intel UHD graphics and a TDP of 15 W.
The new device can connect up to four 4K displays simultaneously via four rear-mounted ports.
Gigabyte has yet to announce pricing or availability of the new Brix mini PCs.
