Shuttle’s SZ170R8 received a score of 8.5 for great performance

Established in 2000, tbreak is one of the oldest websites in the Middle East region dedicated to providing readers the latest video games, 0technology news and reviews. The XPC barebone SZ170R8 uses new “R8” chassis design with Intel®Z170 chipset. Only a fraction of the size of a normal tower PC, this computer can still accommodate four 3.5” HDDs and high-end graphics cards for various demanding graphics and storage applications.

Equipped with the new LGA 1151 socket, the SZ170R8 supports Intel® 6th generation (Skylake) Core™ i3/i5/i7, Pentium®, and Celeron® processors. Built-in four DDR4 memory slots, it supports dual-channel DDR4-2133 memory with the maximum capacity of up to 64GB (16GBx4). The SZ170R8 includes Intel® Gigabit LAN, SATA 6Gbps, as well as USB3.0 high-speed storage interfaces, providing superb data transfer speed and powerful performance.

“Performance-wise, the SZ170R8 will run as best as it can with whatever you kit it out with. The power supply does somewhat restrict the combination of components you can install, but our review unit performed quite well with no problems at all. Heavier apps such as Premiere Pro had no problems running and rendering videos, and games as well ran without a hitch with High settings. Boot-up time was a fraction slower than I’d like, but installing an SSD will pretty much eliminate this entirely.” said by the editor of tbreak media.

“The Shuttle XPC SZ170R8 is a great solution if you’re looking to build a mid-range PC that’s small enough to go unnoticed wherever you set it up. Whether it’s perched on your desk or tucked away in a TV console, it can be built to fill a number of roles – from gaming PC to network file storage. You’ll be able to fit in some pretty decent components as well, and the ability to slot in certain full-sized graphic cards is a huge bonus.” praises by the editor of tbreak. Featured with one PCI-E x16 and one PCI-E x4 slots, the SZ170R8 can be installed up to 120mm of height dual-slot high-end graphics card (max. size of 267 x 120 x 34.6 mm), surveillance cards, or RAID cards to drive video wall, file server, network video recorder, and more applications.
