Shuttle releases two new high performance compact desktops

By on July 7, 2011, 5:36 PM

Shuttle has introduced two new desktops to its pantheon of bite-sized performance machines today. Aimed at gamers and professionals, the H7 5800G Pro and H7 5800P Pro are comparably sized to shoebox at 190 x 208 x 326mm (7.48 x 8.18 x 9.29in), but they pack a furious punch courtesy of top-end parts from Intel, AMD and Nvidia.

Both systems are highly configurable and the base 5800G comes equipped with Intel's 3.06GHz Core i7-950, a GeForce GT 430 1GB, 4GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM, a 500GB 7200RPM hard drive, a DVD burner, Windows 7 Home Premium, and Shuttle's "Integrated Cooling Engine 2" (I.C.E.2) heat pipe technology to keep your precious hardware cool.

If you have the coin to back your desires, that can be bumped up to a six-core Core i7-980X Extreme, a Radeon HD 6970 or GTX 580, 16GB of RAM, dual 2TB HDDs or an SSD/HDD combo, a Blu-ray burner, Windows 7 Ultimate and a liquid-cooling system. Maxed out, you can expect the 5800G's price to skyrocket from $1,300 to beyond $4,100.

Meanwhile, the 5800P also kicks off at $1,300 with a similar base configuration, except it trades the GT 430 for a FirePro V3700. At its finest, the 5800P also breaches the $4,100 mark and it can be outfitted with an i7-975 Extreme, 8GB of RAM, a FirePro V7750 or Quadro 4000, while the rest of the specs match the 5800G, including the liquid cooling.

It's just not worth it for it to be compact, you don't expect to move a desktop anyway and if you are moving it a-lot than a laptop is a better choice.

Why buy something with a previous generation i7 when you can go for the latest chips in other product that will be a lot cheaper?

Yeah a 2600K based system would be cheaper, faster, and run cooler.

Because from the time they start to plan it, produce it and ship it; they just take too much time to stay in the top ranks, besides any retail PC is generally overpriced, my Gaming ring cost me around $1100 whit a 930 i7 overclocked beyond that 950 a 5770 (that was the vest price/performance at that time, rank 7 if i remember well) and not considering that my 9GB 1.6GHz DDR3 was bought when it was rather very expensive

We all know that is more easy and cheaper to build your own gaming ring, i had been doing that in my shop for quite a time and still kicking retailers.

It might be cheaper but I doubt that it is correct to say it is "easier" because you need to do all the work (hard or not) yourself...
