Fanless computer uses new NVIDIA mobile platform
Shuttle Computer has announced a nettop computer using the new NVIDIA Ion 2 graphics platform, the Shuttle XS35. The company says the 1.3-inch thick ultra-compact PC pairs an Intel dual core, 1.66GHz Atom processor with the as yet unofficial GT 218 graphics. The PC is equipped with HDMI output for HD and streaming 3D video and is meant as much for digital signs as it is computing. The XS35 also includes five USB ports, VGA, LAN and Audio connectons, a multi-format card reader and a DVD burner.
The company will unveil the fanless computer at this year's CeBIT trade show. The XS35 will ship in the spring of 2010. Retail pricing hasn't been announced, nor when the system might make the transition to the US.
