    GIGABYTE introduces its latest whitebox All-in-One PC based on the Thin Mini-ITX standard and addressed to channel resellers, VARs and system integrators. Being the biggest screen size (24") in GIGABYTE's All-in-One PC offering, the GB-AEGT aims at establishing its supremacy as the ultimate entertainment All-in-One PC. To do so, it offers the worldwide exclusive ability to receive off-the-shelf double slot desktop graphic cards up to 400W.

    Gaming on an All-in-One PC won’t be a dream anymore, and to complete this dream the GB-AEGT has a full load of multimedia features detailed below. In addition to these features, the GB-AEGT naturally keeps GIGABYTE homemade modular design and is fully upgradable thanks to an easy access to all the internal components.

    95W CPU Support
    GIGABYTE pushed the limits of the Thin Mini-ITX standard and brings in exclusivity on the market the support of 95W CPU. Why does it matter? Well, if you go to your usual CPU retailer and check the prices of 65W and 95W CPUs, you will see that with the 95W CPUs you will be able to afford more power for the same price, or the same power for less money.

    Desktop Graphic Cards Support
    GIGABYTE closes the last gap that separates All-in-One PCs from desktop performance and brings the very first All-in-One that can receive double slot desktop graphic cards up to 400W thanks to an internal PCIe x16 connector. Video games and other graphic applications won't suffer from the performance limitations All-in-One PCs used to impose until today, and choosing an All-in-One won't mean making compromises anymore.

    Supports Intel Core i Series
    The GB-AEGT supports Intel’s 32nm microarchitecture and the LGA 1155 socket, allowing our product to operate with the Intel Core CPU Series and compete this way with traditional tower PC performance. The GB-AEGT will also have an optional motherboard supporting Intel’s upcoming 22nm processor family.

    Monitor Function
    The GB-AEGT can be used as a monitor for other devices, such as laptop and tablets, through an HDMI-In port as well as an operating system switch function that allows to turn on the screen without having to turn on the computer itself.

    External 2.5" HDD Docking Slot
    Transfer and share files easily thanks to this hot-plug slot for external 2.5'' hard drives located on the top of the GB-AEGT.

    TV Tuner Card
    The GB-AEGT can be equipped with a TV tuner card, allowing the computer to be used as a HDTV as well. The screen size makes it perfect to be used as a secondary TV, in a bedroom or a kitchen for instance. Worldwide options are available.

    1080p Full HD Display
    With a top quality 24" LED screen and Full HD resolution, the GB-AEGT displays exquisite and rich-colored images in such details that will turn your All-in-One PC into a home theater.

    SuperSpeed USB 3.0
    The GB-AEGT boasts the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology made possible through an additional onboard host controller. With superfast transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, users are able to experience a theoretical 10x improvement over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users of long term use of their legacy USB 2.0 devices.

    What a horrid looking thing ^^ I don't care if it takes a regular desktop gpu (**Edit: not sure if the PSU is 400W or the GPU allowance is 400W.)

    If you want a compact "frag box" build a mATX, easier to move around, more powerful, and your not restricted to a gimped res this thing offers.

    That's what all in ones looked like 5 years ago and if I'm going for a sleek space saving design and being stuck with the same monitor, make it a good one.

    It's not like I have anything behind my flat-panel monitor. I wouldn't mind an AIO like this, especially when it offers tower-like component choices.

    I might not look elegant compared to an iMac or other AIOs but it definitiely has a compact footprint when compared to a traditional desktop, and it can accomodate a dual-slot card too!. :cool:

    The official specs(at site) say it has a H61 chipset. But there is a catch - "Supports Intel® Core™ i5 / i3 processor up to 95W TDP | Supports Intel® Core™ i7 series up to 65W TDP".. hmmm.. why not i7@95W? :confused:

    If the 24" LCD is of good quality(I mean display characteristics) then this might be a good choice, but only if Gigabyte prices it reasonably..

    Not bad. The upcoming i5 3550K is well below 95W, and you could probably chuck a 7770 or even a 7850 in there and you'd have a nice compact gaming rig.

    Agreed! :rockout:
    but not the K versions.. chipset included (& the lack of competent cooling) wont support oc..

    EDIT: changed 'might not support oc' to 'wont'

    Why would you want to use a 95w "K" version when your board only covers 95w? You overclock that and you would be out of your 95w limit... :banghead:

    I did not say I want a 95W "K" version... I said K versions wont be supported because of chipset, cooling (hence power draw) limitations..

    You said, "might not support oc.. not "wont not support oc..." Plus, I'm just asking a question? :p

    EDIT: but to answer your question about why not a 95w i7.. is because someone would probably try to use a "K" version and blow the thing up... hehehe So locking it down at 65w for i7's takes care of that.. I guess what do you think?

    Yeah, most All-In-One systems have very limited upgrade options and even fewer user specific upgrade options. With this Gigabyte AIO, not only can you upgrade the video subsystem to many of the latest dual slot video cards but there is also the “possibility” one could buy an upgrade replacement for the motherboard itself.

    I like it,…..

    I like it a lot,…..

    However, I would also like to see a single slot version as that would probably make it about ~1/3 thinner. I’d also like to see a 27” version.

    Also, clearly this thing has to use some sort of loop back cable to get the video card output to drive the integrated monitor.

    They might have used a standard LCD monitor with multiple inputs as a base, and the HDMI input to use this AIO as a monitor just means switching the monitor's input
    (Like a regular desktop LCD monitor switching between HDMI and DVI via the OSD .. or between two HDMI ports .. you get the idea)

    So does it take an ITX board? Can I swap it out or buy it without an MB?

    I have corrected my comment.. I guess I held back from being conclusive earlier because H61 chipset although does not support multiplier based oc, one can still try with the BCLK(baseclock).. SB chips allow small BCLK changes... Asus P8H61 has also a software tool(Turbo V) to help with it..

    it wont make any difference to performance, but one can still (for the sake of it) slighty tweak the BCLK.. well I did not expect my original choice of words to spring up a question.. anyways thanks for asking as it could have been misleading..

    regarding your comment on i7@95W.. i dont think the 65W limitation in Gigabyte's specs is to keep users from using the i7- K models as even i5-2500K is 95W & i7-2600(locked) is 95W.
    i guess it is rather a typo on the specs given by Gigabyte (or) the only option for i7 would be the i7-2600S@65W

    Hi,

    To answer some of the questions here:
    • The panel is a LED full HD touchscreen
    • It does support 95W i7 CPUs, the website specs have been corrected
    • An external loop back HDMI or D-Sub cable is only required with AMD based graphics cards, Nvidia ones support direct connection to the pannel through the PCIe connector
    • This model only supports Thin Mini-ITX motherboards

    Yann
