Shuttle Supplies Mini-PC in a Cube Format for 9th Gen Intel Processors

The product family of XPC cubes has a new member: With the SH370R8, Shuttle presents a powerful model for the latest Intel Core processors of the 9th generation and graphics cards from the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series. The SH370R8 targets power users, network users and gamers alike. Based on Intel's H370 chipset, the XPC Barebone SH370R8 supports all the latest Intel Core processors of the "Coffee Lake" series for socket LGA1151v2 with up to 95 W TDP, including the top model Core i9-9900K with eight cores and 16 threads. Four slots are also provided for a total of up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory.

Four slots are also provided for a total of up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory. "The R8 format offers maximum performance and features in a compact size," explains Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "It is ideal for use in ambitious gaming or professional applications. Storage scenarios with up to four 3.5-inch drives are also possible."
For the fluent playback of 4K content with 60 images per second, an HDMI 2.0a connection and two DisplayPort 1.2 connections are available. Further 4x USB 3.1 Gen 2, 4x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 4x USB 2.0, 2x Intel Gigabit Ethernet and audio make sure all your peripherals connect.

A 500 Watt, 80-PLUS-Silver-certified power supply unit supplies the device with sufficient power even when in maximum configuration. A special heatpipe cooling system ensures optimum cooling of the barebone.

Optional accessories include a WLAN/Bluetooth module (WLN-M), an RS-232 port (H-RS232), and a bracket for two 2.5-inch drives (PHD3).

The recommended retail price from Shuttle for the SH370R8 is EUR 317.00 (ex VAT). The model is available from specialist retailers Europe-wide upon publication of this press release.

Two alternative versions of the model in a cube format which are just as powerful and also based on H370, but have a slightly modified design and different technical features, are the SH370R6 and the SH370R6 Plus.

That's not a cube...
But definitely rectangular in space.

Admittedly, I am biased towards ultracompact systems, but still.

Custom PSU - that article and Shuttle page says is Silver but Shuttle's PSU page says Bronze - with small and undoubtedly noisy fan.
Custom motherboard today when mITX is mainstream while mini-DTX, mini-STX and nano-ITX among other rarely used standards exist? 4 memory slots is definitely a positive but still, is it worth it? H370, so no overclocking and Z-features either.

There is one cool thing about this and it is the CPU cooler.
With that cooler along with their expertise in building custom cases they could do an awesome SFF system that would fit standard mITX board and preferably SFX PSU in a much smaller system.

They are just lazy, that design have been around since AMD FX era(if not longer). Not the Bulldozer one but the first FX. Heck the cpu cooler look to be quite the same as it was on Shuttle SN95G5 from 2004. Not that it was bad back then, just a bit overwhelmed by dual core Athlon 64 x2s that one of my friends used on it.

idc what people say. This is perfect for building a potent HTPC with some firepower for living room gaming. 500W 80+ Bronze/Silver is plenty to handle a Core i5 K SKU & RTX2060 with some OCing.

If I'm honest I would not put unlocked processor on it, not even i5s. Even i7 8700 might be a bit stretch. While 95W processor support sounds good on paper intel's TDP creates havoc even on low end z370 ATX motherboards with i7 8700(I'm a bit worried by VRM cooling on this one). And yeah it's h370 board so no OC any ways.

I agree though it's a fine barebone to make a quick stealth build on living room gaming.

modding the top part of the chassis to fit a slim 120mm fan would make thermals much more better. but that's just me..

Not sure which market this thing is aimed at. There's so much space inside that it'd be nice to add a bunch of hotswap HDD racks (like on Silverstone NAS chassis) and a RAID controller, rather than hang all 4 of them on some obscure and inappropriate bracket and put everything on shoulders of iRST. Especially since it's aimed at enterprise and has both RS232 and dual-LAN.
Very weird and very fat SFF...

It's way overkill for a HTPC. You could use a NUC, or any thin-ITX system in a tiny case with iGPU- but even those systems are not needed, and as HTPC's are pretty much obsolete. It's better to just buy an nvidia shield and use nvidia gamestream or steam streaming from main desktop to livingroom tv for gaming, and android apps for streaming video content.

I rather have a capable, gaming-ready ITX PC over a NUC or "micro tower" with iGPU OR a Shield Tablet (that one doesn't reach to my shores, so yea.)

Face on it is.

And, um, no love for Ryzen? Come on Shuttle, get it in gear, eh?

Shuttle really keeping the same shape and size since early 2000's. But its much more forgiving now since everything is smaller (NVME/2.5 in SATA instead of 3.5 inch PATA, no optical drive, DP/HDMI instead of DVI, no legacy port (parallel/serial) etc.)

Here is their old system dated back since Socket A and 370 days
