Shuttle added a new member to its product family of XPC cubes, the SH370R8 representing a powerful machine with latest Intel Core processors of the 9th generation and graphics cards from the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series targeting power users like gamers and others.
Based on Intel’s H370 chipset, the XPC Barebone SH370R8 supports all the latest Intel Core processors of the “Coffee Lake” series for socket LGA1151v2 with up to 95 W TDP, including the top model Core i9-9900K with eight cores and 16 threads. Four slots are also provided for a total of up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory.
The black aluminium chassis, which measures just 33.2 x 21.5 x 19 cm (LWH), can house four 3.5″ hard drives and an M.2 2280 NVMe SSD and thus offers a total memory capacity of up to 4x 14 TB + 1x 2 TB. Furthermore, a PCIe-x16 slot for powerful dual-slot graphics cards such as the latest NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2080 and a PCIe-x4 slot for expansion cards are available. Besides the M.2 2280 slot, another M.2 2230 slot can, for example, accommodate a WLAN card.
“The R8 format offers maximum performance and features in a compact size,” explains Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. “It is ideal for use in ambitious gaming or professional applications. Storage scenarios with up to four 3.5-inch drives are also possible.”
For the fluent playback of 4K content with 60 images per second, an HDMI 2.0a connection and two DisplayPort 1.2 connections are available. Further 4x USB 3.1 Gen 2, 4x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 4x USB 2.0, 2x Intel Gigabit Ethernet and audio make sure all your peripherals connect.
A 500 Watt, 80-PLUS-Silver-certified power supply unit supplies the device with sufficient power even when in maximum configuration. A special heatpipe cooling system ensures optimum cooling of the barebone.
Optional accessories include a WLAN/Bluetooth module (WLN-M), an RS-232 port (H-RS232), and a bracket for two 2.5-inch drives (PHD3). Two alternative versions of the model in a cube format which are just as powerful and also based on H370, but have a slightly modified design and different technical features, are the SH370R6 and the SH370R6 Plus.
