So this is where Matrox has been hiding, it has been in a love dungeon with Shuttle and they've been getting jiggy with it, and the results? A new mini PC, powered by a Matrox M-Series multi-display graphic card that powers the new Shuttle XPC H7 5820S mini PC. The M-Series PCI Express x16 boards support up to eight DisplayPort or single-link DVI monitors at resolutions of up to 2560x1600 per display.
But, get this, a second M-Series card can be combined within the H7 5820S workstation which allows integrators to use a wide range of multi-display installations in corporate, digital signage, security surveillance, process control, stock markets, share traders, crazy-insane monitor lovers and other professional environments.
One of the best features, is that its only 19 centimeters (7.5-inches) in height, which means its quite the mini PC indeed. The Shuttle XPC H7 5820S mini PC sports an Intel Core i7 processor with up to six cores and up to 16GB of DDR3 memory. The high-performance H7 5820S can be incorporated with one or two M9128 dual-monitor, M9138 triple-monitor, M9140/M9148 quad-monitor, and M9188 octal boards.
With up to 2GB of on-board memory and advanced desktop management features such as stretched and independent desktop modes, M-Series cards render pristine image quality and exceptional functionality across all displays.
Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR Europe, Shuttle Inc says:
Shuttle is excited to be integrating Matrox's flagship graphics cards within the H7 5820S mini PC. Customers will be delighted to add M-Series boards into our solution for deployments that can range from enterprise wide dual-monitor workstations to visualization platforms across an immersive 16-display configuration.
Ron Berty, Business Develop Manager over at Matrox Graphics Inc adds:
Space-conscious environments migrating to smaller PCs will typically sacrifice multi-display functionality, but this is not the case with Shuttle's new H7 5820S. This hardware collaboration allows Shuttle to leverage M-Series' technology and build a professional-grade workstation that can deliver multi-monitor installations at par or even better than their larger form-factor counterparts.
