Shuttle has unveiled the XPC H7 5820S, a new small form factor PC that stands out thanks to its ability to run up to 16 displays at a time, thanks to a pro-grade graphics card, and a high-end spec that you’d expect to see in a rig twice its size.
Specifically, its talent for driving 16 displays comes from either a Matrox M9100-series graphics card for 2D uses, or NVIDIA’s Quadro cards for 3D applications. The rest of the spec includes an Intel X58 chipset, a quad- or hexa-core Intel Core i7 processor, 8 or 16GB DDR3 RAM, a DVD or Blu-ray drive, and space for two hard drives. Everything’s installed into Shuttle’s SX58H7 Pro Barebone platform that features eSata and USB ports, a pair of USB 3.0, and 8-channel audio for hooking it up with a surround sound speaker set.
Currently available in Europe, the Shuttle XPC H7 5820S starts at 1,446 euros, or about $2,000.
