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
launches its 2011 model with Intel X58 Express chipset and support for
all Intel Core i7 processors (LGA1366).
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58H7 Pro cuts an elegant figure with a
black aluminium chassis, case and front panel. It also boasts two
heatpipe cooling systems – ideal for ensuring optimal heat
dissipation and high stability.
Owners of this powerpack have a choice to fit either two single-slot
graphics cards or one dual-slot graphics card. Two PCIe-x16-2.0 slots
offer an enormous bandwidth and a separate Mini-PCIe-x1 slot allows
the installation e.g. of a WLAN module.
A further important innovation is the provision of external and
internal ports to the latest standards. Shuttle's SX58H7 Pro has 2x
USB 3.0 (up to 5 Gbit/s) and 2x SATA 6 Gbit/s. External storage media
and internal drives (hard disks or SSDs) can now run at maximum speed.
In addition, at the front and rear are 8x USB 2.0, 2x eSATA and 1x
eSATA/USB 2.0 ports as well as eSATA power supply.

function enables the activation of failover or load balancing.

just 32.6 x 20.8 x 18.9 cm are simply astounding," states Tom

"Although we'd be hard pushed to win an energy-saving competition with
the SX58H7 Pro, in the performance per cm³ category this PC is
streets ahead of its rivals."
