    Richland? Hmmmmm, seems a bit pointless to me. Kaveri or bust.

    That Richland part is 35W, when Kaveri laptop parts come out I suspect they will update the design. In the mean time, it looks to be a nice little box, and it looks like the engineering was already paid for?

    That looks like an awesome little machine but how much will it cost? I like the styling but I hope they have an all black option because it would look out of place under the TV.

    Re: News - Gigabyte launches BRIX Gaming barebone box

    Struggling to find info online re the discrete GPU so hoping someone can answer.

    Its a Mobile part right? and will be running in Crossfire with the APU?

    How many shader cores is that total? and how does it compare to say a 512 shader Kavari part?

    If this can be updated to a Kaveri + Crossfired Mobile Radeon, this could be a nice little gaming media centre box for the living room. Hopefully by that time I'll have the cash and need for such a machine.

    I had a look around and no price as of yet.. gotta wait for the units to be shipped for a guess. As for the A8-5557m "The graphics unit called Radeon HD 8550G offers 256 shader units (VLIW4) and clocks slightly higher than the HD 7640G at 554 - 720 MHz. With fast dual-channel memory, performance is expected to match a dedicated Radeon HD 7570M." So could be ok for low to mid range settings for gaming unless they do allow crossfire. Then should be able to handle mid to high settings on some games at 1080p. Again im only working on guess work atm so please dont treat what i say as gospel, what we need is some real world testing..Hexus will help us out with that in time no doubt

    Seriously, this. If I've said it once, I've (probably literally) said it a thousand times, Radeon + Linux = Fail. People need to stop putting those words together in the same sentence until AMD actually replaces fglrx, because that's the only way they'll ever get Linux drivers that work reasonably well.

    Desktop performance? Those are parts look like notebook/laptop performance to me.

    Where does the name "Kaveri" come from? It means "a friend" in Finnish, but is that where it comes from? There's also a river called Kaveri in India.

    They're pretty rapidly improving catalyst on linux, presumably in anticipation of exactly this type of solution. Kaveri + ddr4 and a mobile radeon crossfire would make a pretty impressive low cost steam machine.

    AMD likes to use place names, so I would imagine it was named after the River Kaveri.

    Depends on which line of Rx M200 parts it's based off. The top end R9 M290X is a 1280 shader part. The R7 M265 appears to be oland-based (384 shaders). If the M275 takes more after its big brother I don't think crossfire would be worthwhile, since the A8 is only a 256-shader part. If it's just a faster clocked oland part, though, crossfire might be plausible. Then again, I'm not sure AMD would countenance using the R9 tag for two SKUs based on the same GPU. R9 is meant to be the performance segment, so I'd hope the R9 M275X is a much beefier bit of silicon than oland...
