The Ideal Mini-PC for Home Entertainment
The revolutionary Intel Core™ i7/i5/i3 processors based on Socket 1156 with high computing power and relatively low power consumption are outstandingly suitable for Mini-PCs. With the XPC barebone SH55J2, Shuttle’s product range now includes a model for this processor platform. Despite its compact dimensions it still manages to find space for a PCI-Express slot, DDR3 memory, HDMI interface, Gigabit LAN, 8-channel audio with S/PDIF out(optional) and an array of interfaces. With an 80 Plus certified 300W power supply and effective heatpipe cooling system, the SH55J2 demonstrates industry-leading thermals and rock-solid stability.
Intel H55 Express Chipset
The design of the Intel new Core i3/i5/i7 processors will eliminate the need for the traditional Northbridge found on previous generation of mainboards. Thus, the Shuttle SH55J2 sports Intel’s H55 Express Platform Controller Hub(PCH) from the Intel 5 series “Ibexpeak” family, which will integrate the hard drive controller, network controllers, monitor physical interfaces, PCI controller and other input/output functionalities.
Built-in Intel HD Graphics Engine*
The Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors integrate the Intel HD Graphics engine which supports full 1080p high-definition video playback, including Bluray disc movies. It features Intel Clear Video Technology and the optimized 3D graphics engine supports DirectX 10, and delivers the performance and compatibility you need for entertaining.
