Shuttle Debuts XPC Barebone SX58H7 Case
The XPC Barebone SX58H7 -- hailed as the company's "new flagship" -- comes ready for an Intel Core i7 processor and measures just 32.5 x 20.8 x 19 cm (LWH) in size. There's also room for two PCI-Express 2.0 x16 cards, meaning that you can load up to two graphics cards in a single-slot design or install a dual-slot graphics card. It can also hold up to 16GB of DDR3 memory in triple-channel mode (3+1), distributed over four memory banks. Somehow, Shuttle also made room for two SATA II HDDs, a 500-watt PSU and a nice array of ports within the all aluminum enclosure.
The case is expected to be available later this quarter, but the 483 Euro asking price (that's around $613) will probably stop all but the wealthiest gamers from picking one up. We guess there's a big premium to pay for smallness.
