The small form-factor X1 PCs from Shuttle are able to handle 4K games thanks to the inclusion of Nvidia's GTX 1060 GPUs. The reduced size comes at a premium, though, with the i7 variant priced at US$1709 and the i5 variants costing around US$1500.

Shuttle is one of the first companies to introduce small form-factor PCs to the masses in the early 2000s. Over the years, the company has continued to provide high quality custom PC barebones for home theater PCs and gaming rigs, and just recently moved into the market of miniature gaming systems. The new X1 mini PCs from Shuttle are around the same size as Intel’s NUC systems, but, even though these models can fit the palm of the hand, Shuttle somehow managed to fit an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU inside.

There are three models in the X1 series: the X1 i7, the X1 i5 Pro and the X1 i5. The most expensive is, obviously, the i7 version, with a US$1709 price tag. This model features the 4-core / 8-thread i7 7700HQ Kaby Lake CPU clocked at 2.8 GHz / 3.8 GHz, while the i5 models come equipped with the i5 7300HQ clocked at 2.5 / 3.5 GHz. The i5 models are priced around US$1500 and also integrate 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, whereas the i7 model integrates 16 GB of DDR4. Shuttle chose to equip the more expensive versions only with a 256 GB M.2 SSD. The X1 i5, however, comes with a 128 GB M.2 SSD and a 1 TB HDD . Other common features for all models include:
•    802.11ac Wi-Fi + Bluetooth
•    1 GbE port
•    1×USB 3.0 Type-C
     4×USB 3.0 Type-A
     2×USB 1.0 Type-A
•    1×DisplayPort and 3×HDMI
•    3.5mm audio jack
•    SD card reader
•    External power supply unit
•    3-year warranty

All X1 are now available and can be ordered directly from Shuttle’s site.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
