It’s been almost a month since Shuttle Announced the SH97R6 Barebone PC and now it has launched with an MSRP of €244.00 ex VAT. The tiny system measures just 20cm in height but offers plenty of options and versatile usage.
The XPC SH97R6 is based around the H97 chipset and LGA1150 socket and can handle Intel processors with a TDP up to 95W. It has four DIMM slots for up to 32GB memory and plenty of connectivity. A 300W power supply is included and everything is ready to go once you plug-in your CPU, memory and storage drives. Speaking of storage, it has four SATA3 and two eSATA connectors with space for one 5.25-inch and two 3.5-inch drives; more with the optional PHD3 mounting frame.
Shuttle made sure the SH97R6 has plenty of 4K display support with two DisplayPort (60Hz) and one HDMI (30Hz). If iGPU isn’t enough power or you just need more connections, it has one PCI-Express x16 Gen.3 slot with room for long dual-slot graphics cards. Internally it has two mini-PCI Express slots of which one is prepared for mSATA SSDs.
Peripherals can be connected by the four USB 3.0, six USB 2.0 and 7.1 audio connections. Network is provided by an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connector and optional W-LAN modules.
The features mentioned here are from the basic model and can be extended with bigger power supplies for example. Shuttle has built a great and modular, tiny yet powerful barebone ready for most things you could do with a tiny cube computer.
