Shuttle announces the XPC XH170V, a new compact Intel Skylake based barebone system with a 3-liter enclosure.
The sixth generation of Intel Core
processors is now supported by a compact 3-litre Mini-PC. The new
barebone model goes by the name of XPC slim XH170V and is based on
Intel’s H170 chipset.
"3-litre PCs have for a long time represented a really serious
alternative to conventional PCs," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing
& PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "Increasingly, they are
matching larger PCs in terms of processor, memory and drive support,
and in many scenarios the improved integrated graphics function makes
dedicated graphics cards obsolete."
With a height of just 72 mm, the XH170V can be operated in various
positions, either lying flat, installed upright with a stand, or
fitted behind monitors and to any suitable surface with a
VESA-compatible mount. Its black steel chassis can accommodate two
2.5" drives plus one slimline drive, or alternatively three 2.5"
drives. All connectors and the bay for the optical drive on the front
of the machine are elegantly concealed behind high-gloss drive doors.
Further technical highlights include support of many Intel Celeron,
Pentium and Core processors for socket LGA1151 (up to 65 Watt of TDP)
and up to 16 GB DDR3L memory split between two slots. The mainboard
offers an M.2 slot (e.g. for SATA-SSDs), a Mini-PCI-Express x1 2.0
slot (e.g. for a WLAN module) and three SATA connectors with 6 Gbit/s
and RAID. Additionally, the front and rear of the machine reveal 4x
USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, eSATA, RS-232, Gigabit Ethernet, 2x DisplayPort
The DisplayPort and HDMI monitor connectors are suitable for parallel
control of the latest high-resolution screens. With a Core i3
processor or higher installed, these ports allow for 4K monitors to
run at 60 Hz (on DP) and 30 Hz (on HDMI).
The recommended retail price for the Shuttle XH170V Barebone is EUR
224.00 (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-S), mounting frame for
3.5" hard disks (PHD4), VESA mount (PV02) and stand (PS01).
