Shuttle has given its XPC cubes model series a boost with the new SH310R4, which features the 8th and 9th gen Intel Core processors.
Based on the Intel chipset H310, the XPC cube Barebone SH310R4 supports the latest Intel Core processors of the Coffee Lake series with socket LGA1151v2 and up to 95 Watt TDP.
Two slots on the mainboard allow a total of 32 GB of DDR4 memory to be installed, and the black aluminium chassis, which measures 32.9 x 21.5 x 19 cm, offers space for an optical drive and two 3.5" hard disks.
Furthermore, a PCIe-x16 slot for powerful dual-slot graphics cards and a PCIe-x1 slot for other expansion cards are available. Two M.2 slots for an NVMe SSD (M.2-2280) and a WLAN module (M.2-2230) are also provided.
An HDMI 2.0a and a DisplayPort 1.2 port enable fluent playback of 4K Ultra-HD videos with 60 images per second, while an analogue VGA port is available for Full-HD video output. Other connectivity options include 4x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 4x USB 2.0, Intel Gigabit Ethernet and audio.
A 300 Watt, 80 PLUS-certified power supply unit provides the SH310R4 with sufficient power even when under full load. It can be swapped for a 500 Watt power supply unit if necessary: This makes it possible to use even more power-hungry graphics cards. Finally, a special heatpipe cooling system ensures optimum cooling of the Barebone.
"The SH310R4 is positioned as a powerful entry-level Mini-PC at an attractive price," explained Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "Three video outputs, two M.2 slots and the many USB connections provide plenty of flexibility."
Accessories available as an optional extra are a WLAN/Bluetooth module (WLN-M), an RS-232 port (H-RS232), a bracket for two 2.5" drives (PHD3) and a 500 Watt power supply unit (PC63J).
Shuttle’s recommended retail price for the XPC Barebone SH310R4 is €231 (ex VAT). The model is available from specialist retailers Europe-wide now.
