Shuttle XPC XH510G2: Socket LGA1200 mini-PC announced with a PCIe x16 slot in a 5-litre chassis
Shuttle has announced a new mini-PC, available as a running machine or as a barebones machine. According to the company, the XPC XH510G2 measures 25 x 20 x 9.5 cm, roughly equivalent to a 5-litre volume. It is worth noting that Shuttle has built the machine using an external power supply, which can handle up to 180 W. Accordingly, Shuttle includes a power supply in the box, along with a power cord. Additionally, Shuttle bundles a screw pack, a VESA bracket and a VESA screen pack.
Separately, the XPC XH510G2 relies on the Intel H510 Express chipset and the Socket LGA1200. Hence, the mini-PC can utilise 10th and 11th Gen Intel Core processors. Shuttle adds that the XPC XH510G2 supports up to 65 W processors, up to the Core i9-11900 series. Moreover, the mini-PC supports up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM via dual SO-DIMM slots, and has two PCIe expansion cards. Theoretically, the XPC XH510G2 could even be equipped with a dedicated GPU, courtesy of its PCIe x16 slot.
For reference, the XPC XH510G2 supports 208 x 120 x 45 mm GPUs, but only those that consume up to 75 W, unless you opt for an expansion kit that increases the machine's power headroom to 225 W. Elsewhere, the XPC XH510G2 has two M.2 2280 slots and a 2.5-inch drive bay. Furthermore, Shuttle equips the XPC XH510G2 with dual HDMI ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 connection, several USB Type-A ports and an Ethernet connection. The Shuttle XPC XH510G2 is orderable now, starting at €379 as a barebones machine.
