Compact Barebone for three high-resolution monitors

 

Elmshorn, Germany, 2014-10-24. 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 launches a 7 cm tall barebone for current and future Intel desktop processors for socket LGA1150. The Shuttle Barebone XH97V is the first Shuttle machine capable of controlling three monitors in parallel alone by the graphics unit integrated in the CPU.

- Scalable from Office PC to 4K player
- Space for multiple drives and a wide range of accessories

The XH97V features Intel's H97 chipset which supports the fourth and fifth generation of Intel Core processors. The quiet dual-fan heatpipe cooling system is suitable for use with Core i3, i5 and i7 processors up to a maximum TDP of 65W. In combination with up to 16 GB of DDR3 SO-DIMM memory and a total of three drives with 6 Gbit/s (e.g. modern SSDs) users can create an outstandingly powerful complete PC at a small footprint.

2x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI allow for showing different content spread across three monitors. The DisplayPorts can run 4K monitors at 60 Hz, while the HDMI port enables a 4K monitor to run at 30 Hz, if required. The performance of the graphics function integrated in the Intel Core processors is sufficient to play back 3x 1080p (Full HD) or 1x 2160p (4K/Ultra HD) without overloading the processor.

Protected by drive doors, the front panel reveals various ports which are continued at the back. These include 4x USB 3.0 and 2.0, eSATA, RS-232, Gigabit Ethernet and a number of audio connectors. When opening the case, three additional SATA 6 Gbit/s ports and an always-on jumper can be found on the motherboard. The two Mini-PCI-Express slots can be used to fit the XH97V e.g. with WLAN and an mSATA-SSD.

The black case in a typical 3-litre format makes installation of the following drive configurations possible: 2x 2.5" SSD/HDD and 1x Slimline ODD or 3x 2.5" SSD/HDD. A new option is the ability to install a 3.5 drive and run connected SATA drives as RAID. Standing flat without pedestal, the XH97V measures just 24 x 20 x 7.2 cm (DWH) in any configuration.

Operation at ambient temperatures between 0-50 degrees is no problem at all for this model. However, the use of SSDs instead of hard disks is recommended.

"By using the H97 chipset, the XH97V is equipped to support both the current and coming generation of Intel processors," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "Thanks to the intelligent combination of features and functions, it is possible to use this machine in countless environments and for demanding applications."

The recommended retail price for the Shuttle Barebone XH97V is 193 Euros (ex VAT). The machine described in this press release is available from specialist retailers across Europe as of now.

Optional accessories include the PS01 (pedestal), PHD4 (mounting frame for 3.5" drive), WLN-S (WLAN kit) and the PV02 (VESA mount).
