Posted Jun 21, 2011 @ 1:37 CDT

Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH, the European subsidiary of Shuttle Inc., one of the leading developers and manufacturers of compact PC solutions such as the world-renowned XPC Mini-PC Barebones, today announces the launch of the first model of a new product line. With a volume of approximately 3 litres, the compact XG41 fills a gap in the company's product range. It offers significantly more performance than a nettop, while taking up much less space compared to the typical Shuttle shoebox format.

The XG41, measuring 24.2 x 20 x 7.3 cm (DWH), sports HDMI and DVI-I, two Gigabit network interfaces, 6x USB, 2x COM (RS-232 + RS-232/422/485), S/PDIF and audio ports at the front and rear. The mainboard also offers 1x Mini-PCIe and 3x SATA 3 Gbit/s. This means that up to three drives can be accommodated in the case (3x 2.5" HDD or 1x Slimline ODD and 2x 2.5" HDD).

In terms of computing performance the XG41 matches that of its conventional equivalents. Its CPU LGA775 socket allows the use of Intel Core 2 processors (up to 65 W TDP). In addition, the two memory slots on the mainboard can be fitted with a total of 8 GB DDR3 RAM.

A heatpipe cooling system with large, regulated dual-fan ensures whisper-quiet operation. An external, fanless 90 W power supply unit provides the necessary power for reliable operation.

According to "The new model is ideal for versatile applications in different fields of use, for example as a powerful workstation PC, for HD playback at home or in the areas of automation and control," states Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH.
"With its two network cards it easily becomes the heart of your network," he adds.
