GIGABYTE Launches BRIX Gaming: Discrete Graphics in the Most Compact of Form Factors
City of Industry, California, January 27th, 2014 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the launch of its latest addition to the GIGABYTE BRIX series of ultra compact PC kits, the GIGABYTE BRIX Gaming. Packing an AMD A8-5557M APU together with an AMD Radeon™ R9 M275X discrete graphics processor, the GIGABYTE BRIX Gaming has gaming performance that belies its compact size.
“The BRIX Gaming offers a real desktop PC experience in a compact form factor that end users now expect from a GIGABYTE BRIX device,” commented Henry Kao, Vice President of GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit. “We’re very excited about the continuing evolution of the desktop PC, challenging the notion that smaller PC design means abandoning performance.”

Hello friends and fans of Club
Overclocker! It has been a very, very long time since I've
updated you on what's going on with Club Overclocker. No, I
didn't die off. However, I did take some time off due to
medical issues. It's a bit of a long story, so I'll keep it
Bassically, the recession
hit the website pretty hard and I decided to put it on
mothballs. Medial issues also forced me to closed up shop
completey in July 2012. I've had some nasty back issues
along with severe pain from multiple hernia
operations. My blood pressue also shot into orbit as I was
dealing with these issues. I'm not talking about take a couple
pills and you'll be all better in the morning. I'm talking
about the kind of blood pressure that is over 200/100 and
the doctor wants to admit you in the hospital. In order to
keep from falling over dead, I just had to walk away from
everything and give up on my business. I cut
out all the stress that I could from my life and just tried
to take it easy for the last couple years. With massive
doses of heart and blood pressure meds, my BP is finally
under control. I'm still in a lot of pain from my past
injuries, but I've come to terms with the fact that I'll
have to deal with the pain for the rest of my life. Get over
it, accept it, and move on.
The past several years have been rough,
but thanks to an understanding wife and two great kids,
I'm doing okay. The question is,
what do I do with my life now? I can't work and I can only
spend a few minutes doing any one thing before I have to
take a break because of the pain. What I need is a hobby.
There are so many things that I want to do, but just can't.
The one thing I can do is tinker with computer hardware at
my own pace. Why not bring Club Overclocker back? I loved
playing with hardware, I'm not on the clock and don't have
to answer to customers. It sounds like the logical choice.
I've given it a lot of thought and have
floated the idea with some friends and family. They all seem
to think it's a good idea. After all, what have I got to
loose? Resurrecting the website isn't going
to be easy, especially with the PC market in the toilet.
However, high end PCs are still popular.
Over the next few days I'll be cleaning
up the website. All those ancient reviews will be deleted
and pages will be brought up to date. Keep checking in as
I'll be posting notes on the changes and updates.
Welcome back to Club Overclocker!
