GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R vs i7-4770K (BRIX vs Desktop)

Brix 4770 test

Quite often we get the question: How good is the BRIX compared to a ordinary PC. We can now bring you the ultimate test, where our lovely GB-BXi7-4770R takes on several desktop CPUs.

We guess that you will find the results from GB-BXi7-4770R quite impressive.

Please note that we also marked the Intel Core i3-4330 in below diagrams. The reason for this is simple: More or less you can compare the desktop i3 with our GB-BXi3-5010 based on the facts that our GB-BXi7-4770R performs very similar to the i7-4770K CPU.

BRIX is super powerful, and its extremely compact. The future is here.
