As expected, small form-factor PC maker Shuttle is entering the compact gaming PC business. After teasing a new mini gaming desktop called the Shuttle X1 in June, the company is now selling the “gaming nano” computer.
With a starting price of $1715, the Shuttle X1 isn’t exactly cheap. But it packs a lot of power into a small space. The entry-level model is a VR-ready machine that features an Intel Core i5-7300HQ quad-core processor, NVIDIA GeForce 1060 graphics, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of solid state storage, and a 1TB hard drive.
All three models ship with Windows 10 Home and come with a 3-year warranty.
The little desktops supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 and feature three HDMI ports and a DisplayPort jack, 8 USB Type-A ports plus a USB TYpe-C port, an SD card reader and a headset jack.
Looking at the current specs and prices for those models, I’m not really sure how competitive Shuttle’s offerings will be. But it’s always nice to have choices.
