Shuttle announced that its new line of fanless PCs now comes with an Intel Celeron instead of an Intel Atom processor:
Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH, the
European subsidiary of Shuttle Inc., one of the leading developers and
manufacturers of compact PC solutions such as the world-renowned XPC
Mini-PC Barebones, today announces delivery of the fourth generation
of its fanless XS35 and XS36 models. With this step Shuttle completes
the changeover from Intel Atom to Intel Celeron processors across its
The new models, the XS35V4 and XS36V4, are fitted with an Intel
Celeron J1900 processor in 22 nm architecture. Its four CPU cores with
2 GHz and 2 MB cache promise an increase in working speed in this
product category. Instead of the previous 4 GB, now a total of 8 GB
DDR3-SO-DIMM is supported.
A particular feature of both models is the range of monitor connectors
with HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA all being available. Two connectors can
be activated simultaneously and used for dual monitoring. The Intel HD
Graphics integrated in the processor enables smooth playback of hi-res
video material in full HD quality.
"Since the first XS35 was presented to the public in 2010, fanless PCs
in space-saving formats have become an established part of our product
range," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer
Handels GmbH. "Thanks to constantly shrinking dimensions, it has been
possible over the years to accommodate ever more computing power in
the same format - and with reduced energy consumption."
One of the main differences between the two models lies in the
dimensions. The XS35V4 measures 25.2 x 3.85 x 16.2 cm (DWH), while it
is 20 x 3.6 x 16 cm (DWH) for the smaller one XS36V4. On the technical
side the XS35V4 also offers space for two drives, an optical slimline
drive and an SSD or HDD in 2.5" format. Inside, there is also a USB
2.0 port with type A socket.
By contrast, only a single 2.5" drive fits in the XS36V4, but it does
offer two serial interfaces (RS-232) on the front. Both models consume
only about 8 W when switched on.
The recommended retail price for the Shuttle XS35V4 and XS36V4 is Euro
165 (ex Vat). Both machines described in this press release are now
available from retailers Europe-wide.
Optional accessories: PV01 (VESA mount for XS35V4), PV03 (VESA mount
for XS36V4) and PHD2 (kit for second SSD/HDD in XS35V4).
