Shuttle today announced a new model for Intel Core i7 processors based on the socket 1366. The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58H7 uses the Intel X58 Express chipset with ICH10R Southbridge.
Two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots can take up to two graphics cards in a single-slot design or a dual-slot graphics card. With a maximum of 16 GB DDR3 Memory in Triple-Channel Mode (3+1), distributed over four memory banks, this barebones PC is a match for the most resource-hungry applications. The aluminium case can house up to two hard disks to run in Serial-ATA-II Raid mode. Maximum accessibility is guaranteed through two Gigabit network interfaces with load balancing and failover-function.
Shuttle?s new high-performance cube is driven by a 500 Watt power supply with "80-PLUS-Bronze" certification.
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SX58H7 will be available in the end of Q1/2009. Shuttle's recommended retail price is EUR 483 (ex VAT).
