Small form-factor PC maker Shuttle is updating its line of products to include several new computers designed for Intel Skylake chips.
The smallest of the bunch is the new Shuttle DH170. It’s a desktop computer that measures 7.5″ x 6.5″ x 1.7″ and which support sup to a 65 watt Intel Core i7 Skylake processor.
While Shuttle’s tiny desktop computer has a bigger footprint than an Intel NUC or Compute Stick, it also has far more expansion options.
The Shuttle DH170 has one DisplayPort and two HDMI ports and support sup to three 2160p displays. It also has two SODIMM slots for up to 16GB of memory, a 2.5 inch drive bay for storage, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and 8 USB ports including four USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports.
There’s also an M.2 slot and a half-sized mini PCIE socket under the hood, as well as an SD card slot and audio jacks on the front of the case and Serial ports on the back (which might come in handy if you plan to use the computer in a commercial or industrial setting instead of using it as a home PC).
Shuttle also has a few other Skylake models in its lineup, including the Shuttle SH170R6 XPC Cube and the Shuttle XH170V.
For all its lack of GPU, its not even fanless… might as well build a computer in an empty milk carton.
All that support for multiple displays without GPU, what for? A box built solely for Photoshop?
Cause you sure wouldn’t want to edit video without CUDA.
Shuttle, haven’t you seen the little Streacom box with fins that can keep a 90W CPU cool without making noise? You could engineer something a little better than this overgrown matchbox, I’m sure.
Thats a pretty ridiculous complaint. It supports up to 65 watt CPUs. Fanless is not a general expectation in this category. While fanless is generally attractive, it is a pretty small niche category, even in the 15 watt realm.
That Streacom box is 2-5kg of solid aluminum… I think the delivery will cost me as much as this box.
Looks interesting. Provantage has a listing which claims stock but has almost no information with it. Priced just under $240. I will assume that is barebones with a skylake Celeron.
Probably $240 with an empty CPU socket – you put your own in.
