Today Shuttle has expanded their range of mini PC systems even further with the unveiling of the new Shuttle XPC Nano NC02 NUC Desktop which are the immediate successors to the previous NC01 series.
The latest Shuttle NC02 range are equipped with six generation Intel core processors in a microformat and are now available to purchase as barebones PCs equipped with mainboard, heat pipe cooling system and power supply.
Today’s Shuttle press release explains a little more about what you can expect inside the case of the NC02.
The base model NC02U is driven by an Intel Celeron 3855U dual-core processor clocked at 2x 1.6 GHz. The 14 nm architecture as well as the power consumption of less than 10 Watt in operation promise low energy consumption and enhanced performance. With its ultra-slim dimensions of 141 x 141 x 42 mm, the housing is 13 mm taller compared to the NC01, enabling the units to support even 15 mm high 2.5″ drives.
If you undo the two screws on the covers of the completely black case with its brushed aluminium top panel, you will find space for one 2.5″ hard drive or SSD. Two SO-DIMM slots can be fitted with up to a total of 32 GB DDR3L RAM. Moreover, the NC02 models all have a free M.2-2280 expansion slot with PCI Express interface, which supports next-gen NVMe cards in addition to M.2 SSDs measuring up to 80 mm in length. A second M.2 slot is equipped with a WLAN module, which can be replaced if necessary.
Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH adds :
Barely more than a year ago, XPC nano was launched in the form of the NC01 models. Since then, demand for this form factor has continued to rise. We have listened to our customers and translated their suggestions into real products. A new fan control, USB 3.0 Type C and NVMe support are just a few examples of this. We look forward to being able to offer a performance-enhanced and versatile platform with the NC02, which essentially can be used wherever efficient, quiet operation and durability are called for.
