Taiwanese manufacturer Shuttle Inc specialised in development and production of innovative mini PCs, now introduces a new mini PC called XPC cube Barebone SH170R6.
The Shuttle XPC cube Barebone SH170R6 consists of a stylish case with pre-installed mainboard, power supply unit (PSU) and cables. Despite its small form factor, it offers outstanding connectivity, functionality and performance. For a full PC system, a processor, memory, mass storage and operating system need to be added. Shuttle XPC cube Barebones are completely customisable meaning users can pick certain components on their own to ideally match their individual needs.
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SH170R6 packs the 6th Generation of Intel Core desktop processors for LGA1151 socket into an elegant, fresh case design. The aluminium case cover with a black-brushed surface has a volume of 14 litre which is just a third of the volume of a standard Midi tower. Despite its small dimensions, it is brimming with features. Set up a top-performer with the latest LGA1151 “Skylake” processor, a dual-slot PCI Express graphics card, M.2-SSD, two 6 TB hard disks in RAID mode and up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory, plus Blu-ray drive.
The SH170R6 has four slots for DDR4 memory modules and for the first time supports up to 64 GB RAM (4x 16 GB) – ideal for resource-hungry applications, e.g. in scientific, creative and manufacturing environments. The processor support offered by the new model is also diverse and as impressive. Almost any Intel Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 LGA1151 processors from the 6000 series up to 95 Watt of TDP can be installed. A closer look under the hood reveals space for at least three drives and brings four SATA 6 Gbit/s connectors. The SH170R6 also features 1x PCI-Express-x16-3.0 and 1x PCI-Express-x4-3.0. In addition, a Mini-PCI-Express-x1-2.0 and M.2 slot enable installation of a WLAN module and a state-of-the-art SSD. The external dimensions are 33.2 x 21.6 x 19.8 cm (DWH). The eight blue external USB 3.0 ports are particularly eye-catching. These are accompanied by 8-channel audio, two further USB ports, one of which can be used to charge mobile devices, eSATA and Intel Gigabit Ethernet. 2x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI are available for connecting displays. These can be operated in parallel and are able to support (Core i3 or higher required) 4K monitors at 60 Hz (DP) or 30 Hz (HDMI).
An efficient 300 W power supply unit provides the SH170R6 with a reliable source of energy even at maximum system configuration (processor, memory, drives). If necessary, it can be replaced by a 500 W power supply unit, e.g. if high-end graphics cards are installed. The entire machine is cooled by an active heatpipe cooling system. Optional accessories include a WLAN module (WLN-C), an RS-232 connector (H-RS232), 1x 3.5″ to 2x 2.5″ installation frame (PHD3) and a 500 W power supply unit (PC63J).
