Shuttle reveals the XH61V, a new barebone for Intel LGA1155 based systems.
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 the introduction of a new model in
its 3-litre PC product series. The XH61V – an improved version of
the previous XH61 – is now available from specialist retailers.
The Shuttle Barebone XH61V is based on an Intel H61 Express chipset
and is compatible with the latest Intel processors for the LGA1155
socket. Processors in 32 nm or 22 nm micro architecture and with two
to four cores are suitable for use with this new model. These include
Intel Core, Pentium and Celeron processors up to 65 W TDP. System
cooling is provided by a heatpipe with two extremely quiet 60 mm fans
for air circulation. Both SO-DIMM slots on the motherboard work in
dual-channel mode and can accommodate up to a total of 16 GB DDR3
memory. An external 90 W power supply is included as well.
If required, the slim case of the XH61V can be fitted with three
drives. Installation options for 3x 2.5" HDD/SSD drives or
alternatively 2x 2.5" HDD/SSD drives plus an optical slimline drive
are present. Connection happens via a SATA 3 Gbit/s interface.
Additional cards (e.g. WLAN) or mSATA-SSD drives can be inserted in
two Mini-PCIe 2.0 slots (1x full-size, 1x half-size). The XH61V also
has HDMI, DVI-I, 2x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0 and an optical S/PDIF output
to be found at the front and rear of the machine.
"We often recommend this model for quiet but powerful workstation PCs,
for HD media playback at home and – thanks to the robustness of the
case – even for professional applications," states Tom Seiffert,
Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "And if,
despite the three possible drives, you run out of disk space, the
machine can be hooked up to a NAS thanks to the Gigabit interface."
The XH61V has two teaming-capable Gigabit network interfaces, which
can be used together to increase transfer performance over the network
(load balancing) or to ensure connection reliability (failover).
Automation and control applications benefit from the two serial
interfaces (1x RS-232, 1x RS-232/422/485) offered by this machine.
Optional accessories include a pedestal for vertical operation (PS01)
and a VESA mount (PV02) to fit the XH61V to suitable monitors or
The recommended retail price for the Shuttle Barebone XH61V is EUR
159.00 (ex VAT). This product is now available.
