Shuttle releases five 39 mm thin fanless PCs for numerous areas of application
Elmshorn, Germany, 2016-07-04 – Shuttle's popular series of robust, fanless, steel chassis Mini-PCs has been given a subtle make-over. Now the sixth generation of Intel Core processors (Skylake) is being used in five different model versions. This update brings 4K support, ac-WLAN and M.2 slot.
- Models support processors from Celeron to Core i7
- Wide range of modern interfaces
As with their predecessors, the five new models measure just 20 x 16.5 x 3.95 cm (DWH) and have 2x Intel Gigabit Ethernet, two serial interfaces, HDMI and DisplayPort, remote Power-ON and Always-ON jumper. New features include ac-WLAN with external antennae, support for DirectX 12 and 4K screens in all models. Up to 32 GB DDR3L memory can now be installed and the USB 3.0 ports have moved to the front panel. Each model comes supplied with a VESA mount that enables it to be attached to a suitable monitor or surface. At just 10 Watts, power consumption is just as miserly as before.
"In combination with sufficient memory and a fast SSD, these models with their Intel Core processors can be used for even the most demanding applications," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "The benefits of fanless PCs are indisputable – noiseless operation, low maintenance requirements and higher fail-safe operation."
