Elmshorn, Germany, 2014-10-14. 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, strengthens its product offering in the versatile cube format even more.

With its features and compatibility, the XPC Barebone SH81R4 is positioned as a basic machine capable of meeting a particularly wide range of requirements. It can be used as the foundation for Mini-PC complete systems on office desks, at events, as mobile data processors or in the home environment.

With the Intel H81 chipset as its heart, it is able to support various LGA1150 processors and up to 16 GB of DDR3 memory. Two PCI-Express slots (x16 and x1) allow for the addition of expansion cards. The x16 slot in Version 3.0 is also suitable for modern dual-slot graphics cards. 2x SATA 6 Gbit/s and 1x SATA 3 Gbit/s connectors are available for SSDs, hard disks and an optical 5.25" drive. Additional expansion opportunities are possible thanks to two Mini-PCI-Express slots, one of which also accepts mSATA-SSDs.

Numerous conveniently positioned and clearly visible ports are available on the front and rear of the machine. The SH81R4 features 2x USB 3.0, 8x USB 2.0, HDMI, DVI, Gigabit Ethernet and 5.1 Audio. Also adding the RS-232 and S/PDIF on the motherboard, make it a comprehensive package measuring 32.5 x 21.5 x 19cm (DWH).

A speed-controlled heatpipe cooling system with a 92 mm fan provides effective cooling, while a highly efficient 300 W power unit reliably supplies the entire system with energy.

"With the SH81R4 we now have an entry-level machine in cube format based on Intel’s latest generation of Core processors," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "The SH81R4 is following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the SH61R4, and offers high performance and flexibility at an attractive price."
