Giga Computing, GIGABYTE’s new subsidiary for high-performance servers, workstations, and mini-PCs, has forecasted the power consumption demands of some of new CPUs and GPUs that Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD are planning to release in the years ahead. According to the roadmap, CPUs that are released by 2024 or 2025 will draw as much as 500 to 600 watts, while GPUs will be similarly demanding, with certain GPUs from NVIDIA expected to draw as much as 700 watts. NVIDIA’s Grace CPU+GPU combo is also shown with power consumption figures of up to 1,000 watts. Giga Computing recently launched a new ultra compact PC kit called the BRIX that features 13th Gen Intel Core U-Series mobile processors, including the GB-BRi7H-1355 with Intel i7-1355U.

From a Giga Computing press release:

With Intel’s 7nm manufacturing process that produces Performance-core (P-core) and Efficient-core (E-core) architectures, users can benefit not only in a performance boost, but also compute with greater efficiency. Besides its lightweight, compact footprint, all new mainstream BRIXs still deliver powerful computing that fits perfectly in any IoT employment, whether for office use, education use, home use, digital signage, medical care, or KIOSK.

These advanced processors also deliver stunning graphics and unparalleled connectivity, providing an unparalleled immersive display and lightning-fast wired and wireless connections. You can scale BRIX from BRi3H (Intel Core i7-1315U) with a total of 6 cores to BRi7H(S) (Intel Core i7-1355U) that has a total of 10 cores and a turbo frequency up to 5 GHz (P-cores). Additionally, the product supports Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+), next-gen Intel Iris Xe Graphics, and enhanced image processing to enjoy a balance of performance and value wrapped into a BRIX that’s right for you. Compared to the prior BRIXs with 10th Gen Intel Core processor, the new 13th Gen processors can easily boost performance, as much as 88% in multi-threaded workloads and up to 140% in single-threaded ones. With the above benefits, users can experience faster browsing and better productivity to accomplish more.
