Shuttle debuts the DH170 mini-PC
Shuttle has added one more mini-PC to its product line just days after announcing the XH170V mini-computer. The new portable PC is called DH170 and features compatibility with Intel’s latest Skylake processors. The addition of the DH170 means that now Shuttle offers three models in different case designs that are available for the new generation of Intel Core processors – one model comes in classic cube format, one is a versatile 3-liter machine and now the DH170, which comes with a particularly compact case that can hold just 1.3 liters of water. The computer measures 19 x 16.5 x 4.3 cm (L x W x H) and is as big as half a sheet of A4 paper.
“This type of case is also suitable for locations where conditions are tough, but high computing performance is still required,” says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. “The 43 mm flat steel case offers maximum protection from mechanical stresses and can also cope with ambient temperatures of up to 50 °C.”
The new Shuttle DH170 mini-computer is based on the Intel H170 chipset and offers full support for 6th generation Intel Celeron, Pentium and Core processors on the Skylake architecture with TDP of up to 65 watts. The DH170 supports up to 16 GB of DDR3L memory in dual-channel mode and has an M.2 PCI-E port that allows the installation of SSDs with the same form factor. In addition to this the DH170 has enough space for a 2.5-inch SATA 3.0 drive and a mini PCI-E expansion slot that can house a WLAN module. In the back the computer has two Intel Gigabit Ethernet ports, a card reader, four USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, two DisplayPort connectors, one HDMI connector, two RS-232 connectors and audio jacks.
If you are not satisfied with this hardware configuration you can update the DH170 with two accessories that Shuttle offers and they include a WLAN kit and a graphics card. Due to the flexibility of the machine the DH170 provides a four-pin connector for remote power-on so you can install the computer in a place that is hard to reach and still turn it on and off with no problems. If required, a jumper on the motherboard can put the machine in always-on mode so that it automatically starts up as soon as the operating voltage is applied.
The new Shuttle DH170 sells for EUR 244 with no VAT applied, given you live in Europe.
