Shuttle Unveils SH55J2 Barebone for Intel Processors

Shuttle, the small form factor PC manufacturer, has announced the XPC SH55J2, a new barebone system with support for all types of Intel LGA1156 socket processors. This means support for Intel Core i7, Core i5 and i3 processor, the first time all three have been supported in one Shuttle system.

As the Core i5 and Core i3 feature integrated graphics processors, the mini PC offers HDMI output, without the need for an external graphics card. Shuttle said in a statement that HD video and sound could be transmitted via HDMI, and a second monitor can be added to the system via a VGA port.

For processors without integrated graphics, a PCI Express x 16 slot is present and can accommodate dual-slot cards, while the 300W power supply should ensure a powerful card can be fitted if required. Inside, there’s room for two hard disks and an optical drive and up to DDR31066/1333 memory is supported.

The Shuttle SH55J2 also features nine USB ports, an eSATA/USB hub, analog and SP/DIF audio, Gigabit Ethernet a PCI slot and a card reader.

The Shuttle XPC SH55J2 Barebone is available now with retail prices in the UK around the £250 mark.

Is Shuttle still your first port of call for your small form factor needs or are PCs just old news in general? Let us know, using your smartphone, in the comments below.

Looks like a typical Shuttle to me - something you'd really want, but just not great value for money. If this was £150, it'd be my next purchase.

Shuttle: "The creative engineers at Shuttle have worked out how to fit large and incredibly powerful dual-slot graphics cards into this compact PC."





Looks like its a x16 slot, using a x8 would be a joke. Shuttle seems to be proud to announce the dual slot graphics card slot, while the latter have been around for a decade or so. For some reason which is beyond me, all their previous barebones -besides the ones aimed clearly for performance- were unable to host a dual slot graphics card (due to obviously misplacing the PCI-e slot). Well done Shuttle it took you some time but you finally nailed it.
