Gigabyte Brix Pro Steam Machine First Look

The Gigabyte Brix Pro is a cool little piece of kit. In fact, it was the smallest Steam Machine at Valve's event, but it was also light on details. We've talked about the Brix Pro before when we found out that it would be running Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics. It may not be able to keep up with discrete graphics cards, but we can tell that Gigabyte is going after an entirely different target with its Steam Machine.

  • Price TBD
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770R
  • RAM: 2 x 4 GB
  • Graphics: Intel Iris Pro 5200
  • Storage: 1 TB SATA 6 Gb/s

    I could slap a Steam logo on my 3 year old laptop and call it a Steam Machine too. Integrated graphics from Intel and gaming do not go together. Valve should seriously start limiting the Steam Machine label to pre approved configurations such as "Needs at least this processor, needs at least this GPU".

    This might work...if you only use it for local game streaming that is. For playing games it's an epic fail.

    I'd have to agree. Well...nothing wrong with integrated graphics for most humble bundle or 3+ yr old games, but some type of steambox rating is needed so buyers know what their system is rated at and a corresponding rating system for all steam games.For instance, my new game requires a steambox 1.2 for high graphics detail @ 60 fps and 1080 or a .9 rating for medium graphics at 30 fps and 1080. Something like that.
