Two PCI-Express 2.0-Slots for two graphics cards / ideal for the latest Intel 45nm processors

Shuttle Inc., the market leader in the Mini-PC sector and manufacturer of Multi-Form-Factor solutions, is now launching its first Mini-PC-Barebone designed for 45nm Intel processors and which can accommodate two graphics cards. Also available for the XPC Barebone SX38P2 Pro is a highly-efficient 450 watt power supply with 80 PLUS certification. This enables the two PCI-Express graphics cards and the fastest processors to run smoothly.

"Gamers appreciate the high frame rates with two graphics cards and professional users enjoy the benefit of up to four monitors", explained Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "Together with Intel Core 2 Quad CPUs with four cores and up to 8 GB DDR2 memories, this Mini-PC can achieve extremely fast speeds."

The Intel X38 Express chipset with PCI-Express 2.0 provides broadband up to 16 GB/s, twice as much as in PCI-Express 1.0. This also provides huge potential for future graphics cards.

The XPC Barebone SX38P2 Pro also has space for up to three internal hard disks and two external eSATA drives can be connected at the back. The Gigabit network interface ensures good, high-speed connections.

The realistic 8-Channel HD-Sound is secured by the Dolby® Digital Live! and the DTS[TM] Connect certification. The audio signal can be transferred lossless by SPDIF optically or electrically. A Mini-PCIe-Slot is used for the Intel Turbo Memory and thereby accelerates the system start and frequent program start-ups.
