Hardware manufacturer Shuttle has this week introduced its new DS10 mini PC range based on the Whiskey Lake microarchitecture designed by Intel as a successor to Kaby Lake for ultra-low power mobile devices. All DS10 models are completely fanless and operate without any noise and thanks to the passive cooling system the mini PC range are very low maintenance is less dust is able to penetrate the casing.
“Compactness and robustness, coupled with a variety of connection options, once again make the DS10 range ideal for professional applications such as digital signage, POI/POS, control and office use,” explains Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. “The particularly powerful versions U5 and U7 with quad-core processor and up to eight threads even perform well as a server or mobile workstation.”

From the DS10U3, four ports with USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbit/s) are in fact available. The finishing touches are 2× Intel Gigabit Ethernet, a card reader, audio and a port for an external power button which can be used to start the device remotely (e.g. if a fixed installation is difficult to access).”
