Shuttle launches barebones Mini-PCs for LGA1150 processors

Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH, the European subsidiary of global developer and manufacturer of compact PC solutions Shuttle Inc., known for such products as the XPC Mini-PC Barebones, now also offers models compatible with the fourth generation of Intel Core processors ("Haswell") for socket LGA 1150.

shuttle cubesShuttle provides compact, cube-shaped PCs for all platforms of the Intel Core processor family. And Haswell is no different. With the XPC Barebone SH87R6 and XPC Barebone SZ87R6, the manufacturer presents two solutions based on this processor type that are suitable for a wide variety of applications. The Mini-PCs are not only intended to be used as powerful and energy-efficient desktop PCs, but also as high-performance workstations or mini-servers. The enclosures are also able to be used as compact gaming rigs thanks to their compatibility with a wide range of removable graphics cards.

The necessary computing power is generated within the machines by fourth-generation Intel Core processors, e.g. Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors and up to 32 GB of DDR3 memory. The PCI-Express-x16-3.0 slot allows for the installation of modern dual-slot graphics cards.

Alternatively, this and an adjacent PCIe-x1-2.0 slot can be used for expansion cards. The motherboard sitting in the R6-chassis also accommodates two Mini-PCI-Express slots: 1x full-size slot for mSATA modules and 1x half-size slot for expansion with e.g. WiFi. Four SATA ports with 6 Gbit/s are available for hard disks and SSDs. Heat dissipation is managed by an efficient heatpipe cooling system.

Both R6 models offer 4x USB 3.0, 6x USB 2.0, eSATA, an optical S/PDIF output and analog 7.1-Audio ports. HDMI and DVI connectors ensure optimal use of the output of the enhanced graphics function incorporated by the fourth generation of the Intel Core processor family. Furthermore, the SH87R6 connects to wired networks with its Gigabit-LAN interface, while the SZ87R6 sports two of them being teaming-capable.

The two models are built with the following basic specs:
-XPC Barebone SH87R6, Intel H87 chipset, Gigabit-Ethernet, 300 W power supply unit
-XPC Barebone SZ87R6, Intel Z87 chipset, Dual-Gigabit Ethernet, OC of K-CPUs, 500 W power supply unit

The front panel of the SH87R6 comes in a "Pinstripe" look. By contrast, the SZ87R6 presents a front of brushed aluminium. Both models offer space for three drives (1x 3.5" internal, 1x 3.5" external and 1x 5.25" external) and have the same dimensions.

"These compact machines measure just 33.2 x 21.6 x 19.8 cm and are therefore the right size for desktop use," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "People need to experience for themselves how such a small, powerful aluminium cube can enhance their personal work and home environment."

Shuttle's recommended retail price for the SH87R6 is EUR 245.00 (ex VAT) and for the SZ87R6 is EUR 294.00 (ex VAT). The SH87R6 shown here is available now from specialised retailers throughout Europe. The XPC Barebone SZ87R6 is expected to launch in the end of November 2013.
