Default The strikingly different Mini-PC: SZ270R9

Elmshorn, Germany, 2017-12-13 be different, don't just follow the usual structured shapes and please, not just any old plain look. The Barebone with the name SZ270R9 that is presented here leaves a lasting impression. This Mini-PC clearly finds it hard to keep a low profile. It is colourful, bright and appeals to gamers and hardware enthusiasts who, rather than wanting to blend into the background, prefer the limelight.

- RGB LEDs and CPU multiplier can be configured with software
- Space for six drives (4x HDD/SSD, 2x NVMe)

Technically identical on the inside to the SZ270R8, which was presented in the last quarter, the SZ270R9 has visual differences that are instantly apparent. It has an RGB LED front panel, which can be controlled via BIOS and management software and can be infinitely adjusted and thus adapted to suit individual tastes. Colours, effects and the brightness level can be modified and defined for the two operating modes of the Mini-PC.

On the top edge of the front panel there is a "Turbo" button. This can be configured by software so that when the button is pushed the multiplier of Intel K-series processors is changed and additional computing power can thus be called up by overclocking.

"The stylised, illuminated X also confidently demonstrates the enormous system power outside the chassis," says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "It quickly becomes apparent that the SZ270R9 is a real winner."

The SZ270R9 relies on the tried-and-tested Intel Z270 chipset and therefore provides support for many current Intel processors for the LGA1151 socket and 64 GB of DDR4 memory. It has one slot with PCI Express x16 3.0 and one slot with PCI Express x4 3.0. For additional cards there are three M.2 slots, which can accommodate WLAN modules or drives, for example.

As with the models featuring the R8 design, the new R9 design also provides room for four 3.5" hard disks and two NVMe or Optane SSDs. Thanks to RAID support, the drives can be switched to mode 0, 1, 5 or 10.

The network connections are also present in redundant form on the back because this Mini-PC boasts 2x Gigabit Ethernet.

Its 500 Watt power supply unit, which does of course also enable full expansion, for instance with an Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, has 80 PLUS Silver certification indicating a high level of efficiency.

Accessories that are optionally available include a 2.5" HDD/SSD drive holder (PHD3), serial interface (H-RS232) and WLAN/Bluetooth module (WLN-M).

The recommended retail price from Shuttle for the SZ270R9 is EUR 375.00 (excluding VAT). This model is available from specialist retailers Europe-wide upon publication of this press release.

Established in 1983 in Taiwan, Shuttle Inc. specialises in the development and production of space-saving Mini-PCs. The stock market listed company is represented globally through subsidiaries in Germany, the USA, China and Japan. Since 2001 attractive PC solutions in an array of formats designed for virtually every area of application have been the main business focus of Shuttle. The company aims to develop individual solutions for the demanding requirements of its customers. Technical innovations such as new chipsets, processors and connectors are regularly integrated in new models within a short time of product launch. The range of products has recently been expanded to include high-performance fanless slim PCs.
