Fanless Mini-PCs With Next-Generation NVIDIA ION Graphics and HDMI Interface
ELMSHORN, Germany, September 14, 2010 - Shuttle Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of multi-form-factor
solutions such as the world-famous XPC Mini-PC Barebones, today announces the
official European sales launch of the XS35 series. There are in total eleven
versions of the new model available, which all boast a compact format of just
38 mm in width, high connectivity and a completely passive (fanless) cooling
As the smallest-ever Mini-PC from Shuttle (25.2 x 3.85 x 16.2 [cm, DWH])
the XS35 offers particularly low energy consumption. The series is based on
efficient technologies and uses the Intel Atom D510 dual-core processor (2x
1.66 GHz), SO-DIMM memory, 2.5 inch hard disks and slim-line drives. Since no
fans are used at all, any models work virtually silently even under heavy
load. Using no fans also means less maintenance is required.
Shuttle's XS35 series is offered in a number of very different variants.
Nine complete systems with or without operating system as well as two
barebones (without memory, drives and operating system) are available.
- Shuttle Barebone XS35 - Intel GMA 3150 graphics, VGA output, up to 2 GB memory, space for two drives - Shuttle Barebone XS35GT - as XS35, but with next-generation NVIDIA ION graphics and VGA + HDMI outputs Complete systems - XS35-703 - Intel GMA 3150 graphics, VGA output, 2 GB memory, 160 GB HDD - XS35-704 - as XS35-703, but with 320 GB HDD and DVD writer - XS35GT-804 - as XS35-704, but with next-generation NVIDIA ION graphics, VGA + HDMI outputs and 500 GB HDD - XS 3500BA - as XS35-704, but also with Windows 7 Professional - XS 3510MA - as XS35GT-804, but also with Windows 7 Home Premium - XS350VA - as XS35-704, but also with openSUSE Linux - In addition, the XS 3500B, XS 3500H and XS 3510M models are available as configurable versions in the Shuttle Systems Configurator.
Basically each XS35 model is fanless and offers 5x USB 2.0, WLAN (n, 150
MBit), LAN, audio, card reader and Kensington Lock. The optional PV01
accessory enables the machine to be fitted to VESA-compatible screens or
mounts. Instead of an optical drive, it is also possible to integrate a
second hard disk (PHD2 accessory) in many XS35 models.
All models, based on the XS35GT barebone, feature powerful
next-generation NVIDIA ION graphics (ION2) with 512 MB of DDR3 memory and a
HDMI-out which is ideal to connect it to modern Full-HD screens. Video and
audio signals are transmitted in outstanding digital quality with just one
cable while also ensuring fluid, CPU-offloading playback of HD videos (H.264
over network, from hard disk, as Flash or from a Blu-ray disk). There is
therefore nothing to stop the installation of a Blu-ray drive.
"This innovative PC concept generated a great deal of enthusiasm and
excitement at Computex. Now we are particularly pleased to announce the
European launch," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle
Computer Handels GmbH. "The fact that there is such a wide range of models at
the outset means that buyers can choose the most suitable machine for their
All Shuttle-manufactured complete systems with Windows operating system
