has announced a new addition to its XPC lineup of Mini-PC Barebones, the SX48P2 Deluxe. With Intel's X48 chipset inside the small form factor case, the new XPC packs quite a list of features.
According to the press release from Shuttle, the new XPC Barebone SX48P2 Deluxe is the first mini-PC that can be equipped with DDR3 memory modules. Besides the support for up to 8GB of DDR3-1600 memory, the new XPC can be equipped with Intel's 45nm Intel socket 775 Core 2 Extreme, Quad and Duo processors. Shuttle has decided to use the best things for this new XPC, as its FX48 motherboard uses solid capacitors and an 8-phase digital voltage transformer.
The new XPC also comes with two PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots for some Crossfire fun, but it is also limited to either two single slot graphics cards or a single dual slot card. It also comes with a single Mini-PCIe x1 slot at the bottom of the chassis.
The new XPC also features an integrated 802.11b/g wireless LAN and a Bluetooth 2.0 dongle. Other specs include 8-channel HD audio with Dolby Digital Live! and DTS Connect support, eight USB 2.0 ports, two Gigabit LAN ports, four SATA2 and two eSATA ports and a fingerprint reader.
The entire XPC is cooled by Shuttle's I.C.E. heat pipe cooling system paired up with the OASIS module, and comes power up by a 450 watt ATX mini power supply with 80 PLUS certification.
According to the press release, the new Shuttle XPC Barebones SX48P2 Deluxe is available now at a suggested price set at €485 without VAT.
