Shuttle presents the XPC Barebone SH61R4, a new barebone system with Intel's H61 chipset.
Shuttle Computer Handels
GmbH, 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 the sales launch
of a Mini-PC for second-generation Intel Core processors.
The XPC Barebone SH61R4 establishes itself as a highly efficient
Mini-PC platform for cost-conscious users. It is suitable for all new
second-generation Intel Core processors (i3/i5/i7 for LGA1155) as well
as energy-saving DDR3 memory and boasts a particularly well-balanced
performance/energy consumption ratio. Effective cooling is managed by
a system comprising several heatpipes and a large, speed-controlled
fan for optimal smoothness when running.
The Intel H61 Express chipset features new, energy-efficient
technologies and innovative functions such as USB 3.0. Two digital
monitor connectors (DVI-I, DVI-D) on the rear can be controlled by the
graphics function integrated in the second-generation Intel Core
processors - without any add-on graphics card required in the PC.
Should advanced graphics performance be needed, a dual-slot graphics
card can be added using the PCI-E-x16-2.0 slot. There is one
PCI-E-x1-2.0 and Mini-PCI-E-x1-2.0 slot each for other expansion
The compact aluminium case with its 250 Watt power supply unit has
space for three drives; an optical 5.25" drive and two internal 3.5"
drives (e.g. SSD and hard disk). On the front and rear there is a
total of ten USB ports with two of which being USB-3.0 standard. The
SH61R4 also features Gigabit LAN and 5.1 Audio. A serial port (COM)
can be installed optionally. 300 Watt and 500 Watt power supply units
are sold separately.
"With its all-round compatibility, its performance can be adapted at
any time to suit individual needs," says Tom Seiffert, Head of
Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "The R4 model also
has the same front panel as the J4 that allows for creating personal
front designs easily."
Shuttle's recommended retail price for the XPC Barebone SH61R4 is 172
Euros (ex VAT).
