High-end Mini PC with OC FeaturesPowerful Shuttle XPCs have convinced as workstation machines or gaming rigs for years. You can already guess from the RGB-LED lighting of the R9 front – this barebone that has particularly been designed for gamers has oomph under its bonnet. Simply pressing the turbo button on the front will be enough to activate overclocking mode and squeeze the maximum out of your Intel LGA 1151 processor with K multiplier (such as the Core i7-7700K). Lighting and CPU multiplier can be adjusted and set using the Shuttle OC-Tool. Despite the compact dimensions, the SZ270R9 has room for a dual-slot graphics card such as the GTX 1080, up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory, two M.2 drives and even four 3.5 inch hard disks or SSDs. Cooling is provided by an efficient heatpipe cooling system and a separate fan for the drives.
High-resolution DisplayPortThe DisplayPort connector allows for connections with digital high-resolution displays. Depending on processor and display model resolutions of up to 4K/Ultra HD (3840x2160) can be achieved. Besides picture signal, DisplayPort cables can also lead digital sounds signals in excellent quality.
HDMI interfaceGoodbye cable spaghetti! Modern flat-screen TVs and large-format TFT screens can be connected to this Mini-PC with just a single thin cable. Often the audio output is also transferred in brilliant quality via the HDMI cable.
Dual-slot graphic cards? No problem!The creative engineers at Shuttle have worked out how to fit large and incredibly powerful dual-slot graphics cards into this compact PC. The special dimensions of the cards and the unusual fan size cause no problems at all in this Mini-PC.
Intelligent coolingShuttles patented Heatpipe Cooling technology with variable speed control automatically ensures maximum system stability and quiet operation in this aluminium Shuttle Mini-PC. Instead of swirling around the chassis, as is the case with conventional solutions, the warm air is specifically transferred out of the chassis.
Optimal air flowWarm air is transported out of the chassis by means of cleverly arranged components, which enables a large number of parts to be cooled simultaneously in the air flow. At no time can heat build up and adversely affect the stability of the system.
Dual network connectionIn this model two gigabit network controllers ensure maximum data transmission rates via load balancing and maximum availability via the failover function.
PCI Express technologyA fast X16-PCI-E slot enables the use of modern 3D graphics cards and other expansion cards that have to transfer huge amounts of data at ultra-rapid speeds.
For a longer life and more system stabilityAll the components of the highly integrated mainboard of this PC are fitted with modern solid capacitors, which offer six times the lifespan of normal capacitors.
Shuttle opts for lightweight aluminiumThe use of aluminium in Mini-PCs has significant advantages. Aluminium has an ideal balance between weight and strength, does not rust and is not sensitive to magnetism. Its thermal conductivity is four times higher than steel. All in all, its a perfect material for Mini-PCs.
Intel chipset insidePlay it safe with the reliable chipsets from the worlds largest chip manufacturer. Intel chipsets have proven themselves over many years, have been presented with awards by the trade press and offer the best possible degree of compatibility.
The interface for the fastest of memory mediaInternal drives to be used inside this Mini-PC can transfer data at a speed of up to 6 Gbit/s. Hard drives thus run significantly faster and brand-new media technologies such as SSDs can use their full potential. Be sure to look for SATA 6 Gbit/s.
The fastest connection to external peripheral devices available to dateThe USB 3.0 connectors of this model allow for data transfer of up to 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s). This enables external devices such as USB hard disks to be connected and run at nearly the same speed as their internal siblings. USB 3.0 is downward compatible so that also devices of previous USB generations can be hooked up.
Intelligent fan controlThe Smart Fan system promises low operating noise with its large, slowly rotating fans, which generate a very large airflow and have automatic variable speed control.
Generous supply of USB portsYou can never have enough of those versatile USB ports. This Shuttle Mini-PC offers 8 ports, with further ports for internal expansions located on the mainboard.
6-channel audioWith the inbuilt sound card you can connect up to six speakers. Get your own personal surround-sound experience at home.
