Shuttle's XPC SN78SH7: 'new' enclosure

Aimed at AMD's Socket AM2+ CPUs, the barebone chassis incorporates a motherboard based on Nvidia's GeForce 8200 integrated chipset.

Pitched as a media centre machine, the XPC SN78SH7 has a back panel has an HDMI 1.3 port that supports HDCP copy protection - essential for connecting the computer to an HD TV. There's a full array of 3.5mm audio socketry, some with integrated digital optical audio links. The system's sound is handled by an eight-channel audio chip with DTS Connect and Dolby Digital Live! certification.

HDMI 1.3 on board

If the DirectX 10-compatible integrated GPU isn't up to snuff, the SN78SH7 has a PCI Express 2.0 slot for a graphics card.

The whole lot's fed by a built-in 300W power supply that delivers, Shuttle said, a power conversion efficiency of more than 80 per cent.

Available now, the SN78SH7 costs €284 ($451/£225) before local sales tax is applied.
