Shuttle still has some momentem happening with its once super popular XPC range of SFF PCs, releasing the new H7 5820S mini workstation today which sports one (or optionally two) Matrox M-Series graphics card(s).




The system is built around Intel's LGA1366 platform in Shuttle H7 series aluminum chassis measuring in at 32.6 x 20.8 x 19.6 cm and gives support for all LGA1366 processors right up to the Core i7-990 hexa-core model. It comes with 8 or 16GB memory, up to a 240GB SSD and 2TB HDD (you can house just one, or two drives in it), a DVD or Blu-ray writer/Combo drive and as mentioned earlier, up to two Matrox M9188 2GB graphics cards.




The main benefit of running these particular cards is their extended ability to handle up to eight separate monitors each - meaning if you go with two of them you can have this little system outputting to a total of 16 (!) monitors.


The base system (comprising a Core i7-950 with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD and a single Matrox M9138 low-profile card (enabling output to 3 monitors) will set you back the equivilent of €1,400.
