Shuttle announces DH02U/DH02U5 mini PCs with GTX 1050 GPUs
Computex 2018 has seen quite a few mini PCs announcements from major OEMs, however, Shuttle decided not to showcase anything new at that event, even though it is the largest mini PC barebones provider on the market right now. The Taiwanese company has only recently announced a couple of new mini PCs with updated specs, and it seems like these are Shuttle’s most compact models to include Nvidia discrete graphic solutions to date.
Both the DH02U and the more advanced DH02U5 come with GTX 1050 GPUs from Nvidia. The most important difference between the two models is the CPU solution: while the DH02U is powered by the modest Intel Celeron 3865U dual-core, the DH02U5 comes with a more powerful i5-7200U dual-core (both CPUs have a 15 W TDP). Shuttle allows users to fit all the components in 7.5″ x 6.5″ x 1.7″ 1.5-liter chassis, claiming that these are the slimmest the company has ever made.
Other specs include:
• Up to 32 GB of DDR4 through 2x SODIMM slots
• 2.5-inch storage drive bay for a SATA SSD, plus an M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs
• Connector suite: 4x HDMI 2.0b, GbE jack, 4x USB-A 3.0, 2x USB-A 2.0 ports, audio in/out, RS-232, SD card reader
• Support for Win 10 and Linux 64-bit OSs
These new models are primarily targeted at the enterprise clients looking to achieve smooth point-of-sales/digital signage experiences for their businesses. This is reflected in each variant’s price, as the Celeron one starts at US$845 and the i5 ups the price to US$1,165. Note that the basic models do not include storage and RAM solutions. The two new models are now available in Europe.
