MSI Cubi 2 Features:
Like the Gigabyte Brix Kaby Lake update models we saw last month, MSI is offering a choice of 7th gen Intel Core i3 7100U / i5 7200U / i7 7500U processor in one of the two compact form factors. The so-called ‘SSD SKU’ can easily fit 1x M.2 SSD and it measures 115.2 x 112.2 x 32.6mm, the slightly taller ‘HDD SKU’ can also accommodate both an M.2 SSD and a 2.5-inch SATA HDD (or SSD) and measures 115.2 x 112.2 x 42.7mm. Both MSI SKUs are a little smaller than the Gigabyte BRIX rivals, and it claims they are the smallest of their kind.
MSI Cubi 2 Ports:
This new MSI Cubi 2 is small enough to attach to the back of a display with a VESA mount, and this system supports up to two displays, thanks to Mini DisplayPort and HDMI outputs.
MSI’s design provides the front access to a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.1 Gen1 port, headphone and a storage activity light, microphone ports, and the power/reset switch. The MSI Cubi 2 facilitates 4K content consumption and, along with its HDMI and DP ports, can support dual-monitor setups. You can also mount the Cubi 2 on the back of a monitor or TV with its standard VESA mounting holes. You should also benefit from a ‘quiet as a forest’ system, as the MSI Cubi 2 only emits 23.7dB of noise in the operation, partly down to its two-ball Fan Heatsink design.
Unfortunately no information on the worldwide availability or pricing has been released as yet by MSI, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
