Shuttle rolls out its first Mini-PC for 6th generation of Intel Core processors (Skylake)
Elmshorn, Germany, 2015-10-15 - fourteen years after the launch of the original XPC, this classic cube format comes brimming with features more than ever. The XPC cube Barebone SH170R6 with its aluminium chassis marks the company’s first platform for the sixth generation of Intel Core processors in 14 nm micro-architecture.
- Up to 64 GB DDR4 memory and M.2 support
- Connects to up to three 4K monitors without an additional graphics card
"Since the first XPC in 2001, new Shuttle Mini-PCs have constantly been developed to coincide with the launch of each new Intel micro-architecture generation," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "And we make no exception with Skylake. Purchasers of these machines with Intel H170 chipset benefit from noticeably more power, due in part to the introduction of DDR4 memory."
The SH170R6 has four slots for DDR4 memory modules and for the first time supports up to 64 GB RAM (4x 16 GB) – ideal for resource-hungry applications, e.g. in scientific, creative and manufacturing environments. The processor support offered by the new model is also diverse and as impressive. Almost any Intel Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 LGA1151 processors from the 6000 series up to 95 Watt of TDP can be installed.
A closer look under the hood reveals space for at least three drives and brings four SATA 6 Gbit/s connectors. The SH170R6 also features 1x PCI-Express-x16-3.0 and 1x PCI-Express-x4-3.0. In addition, a Mini-PCI-Express-x1-2.0 and M.2 slot enable installation of a WLAN module and a state-of-the-art SSD. The external dimensions are 33.2 x 21.6 x 19.8 cm (DWH).
The eight blue external USB 3.0 ports are particularly eye-catching. These are accompanied by 8-channel audio, two further USB ports, one of which can be used to charge mobile devices, eSATA and Intel Gigabit Ethernet.
2x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI are available for connecting displays. These can be operated in parallel and are able to support (Core i3 or higher required) 4K monitors at 60 Hz (DP) or 30 Hz (HDMI).
An efficient 300 W power supply unit provides the SH170R6 with a reliable source of energy even at maximum system configuration (processor, memory, drives). If necessary, it can be replaced by a 500 W power supply unit, e.g. if high-end graphics cards are installed. The entire machine is cooled by an active heatpipe cooling system.
The recommended retail price for the Shuttle Barebone SH170R6 is EUR 258.00 (ex VAT). At the time of publication of this press release the specified model is available from specialist retailers Europe-wide.
Optional accessories include a WLAN module (WLN-C), an RS-232 connector (H-RS232), 1x 3.5" to 2x 2.5" installation frame (PHD3) and a 500 W power supply unit (PC63J).
