GIGABYTE BRIX GTX 760 Compact Gaming PC Kit Review (GB-BXi5G-760)

5 – Benchmarks

I won’t detail the testbed because GIGABYTE BRIX is a closed testbed itself and we can’t just replace the GTX 760 by another graphics card. But just to have an idea, the testbed I used for discrete GPUs is based on a GIGABYTE G.SNIPER M5 motherboard + Intel Core i5 4670K @ 3.4GHz + 16GB of DDR3 @ 1600MHz.

I installed the latest NVIDIA R340.76 graphics drivers on the BRIX GTX 760. R340.76 brings the OpenGL 4.5 support but it is not used in these tests. The operating system is Windows 8.1 PRO 64-bit.

The benchmark is essentially focused on the comparison between the GTX 750 (Maxwell) and the GTX 760 (Kepler). Other GPUs can be added in comparison when data is available.

    1344 CUDA cores, 112 TMUs and 24 ROPs it’s desktop 660Ti actually

    6GB VRAM is excellent :O 🙂 but Brix GTX 760 is crap for gaming because it’s much slower than GTX 760 reference. :S lool

  3. Hippo

    Do you think running the Brix without it’s case on would help the overheating? (when i say case i mean like leaving off the side panel with the ethernet port/HDMI/USB but keeping the top on)

    Nice idea with that Box, but the components aren’t efficient enough for that small box. Its nice to have High-End-Components in such a small case, but if you can’t use it under full utilization, this is senseless.

    Zotac do that better with his ZBox EN760. Yes its not as fast as this box (before the Brix-Box throtteling the GPU), but its quiet, it doesn’t overheat and it doesn’t need to throttle the GPU under long time utilization.

    Perhaps Gigabyte develop a new Box and solving that problems, than its a real nice small PC
