When we got a chance to get our hands on Shuttle’s XS35GTA V3 it was simply an offer that we could not refuse, especially due to a quite interesting choice of components squeezed into a 1.57-litre chassis.
As part of Shuttle’s Slim PC lineup, the XS35GTA shares many features with most of the Slim PC series systems. In case of the XS35GTA V3, Shuttle decided to pair Intel’s NM10 Express chipset with Atom D2700 dual-core CPU and AMD’s Radeon HD HD 7410M dedicated GPU, but we will get to precise specifications a bit later.
The impressive part of the XS35GTA V3 is the fact that it is completely passively cooled and thus does not produce any noise. Power consumption of the entire system, according to Shuttle, is set at 19W in idle and up to 27W under full load. To make things even more impressive, components are squeezed into a compact chassis measuring 25.2 x 16.2 x 3.85 cm (DxHxW) and weighing around 2.1kg.
The Shuttle XS35GTA V3 offers an entire office/HTPC system packed in a small, VESA mountable, 1.57-litre chassis that should pack enough punch for full-HD movies, 3D content and regular office work without producing any noise at all.
