Officially presented in September the processor family Intel Apollo Lake begins to enter the market, not only on notebook and tablet but even on the mini-desktop PC . In fact, successive announcements of new models based on this new platform to 14nm, from ‘ ECS Liva Z to Gigabyte Brix touching even the TV stick TV keys that are there palm of your hand but that the previous generation had given a headache to Intel (remember that initially were fanless but then Intel had added a fan to design to solve thermal problems?).

is the latest in the series Shuttle DX30 a liter desktop (1.3l to be precise) that has the daunting task of repeating the success of previous Shuttle XS36 and XS35 . By Our first tests on Intel processors Lake Apollo emerged convincing performance in single-core but much less exciting in multi-core due to the absence of HyperThreading technology. We would therefore have preferred an Apollo Lake quad-core but the choice fell on a Shuttle Intel Celeron J3355 dual-core. This means you will not witness a significant improvement in performance in everyday use, however, with the exception of exquisitely multimedia performance . One of the biggest advantages of Apollo Lake is indeed to integrate a GPU Intel Gen9 represents a huge step forward compared to the past.

Now I suppose that hardly those who buy a Shuttle DX30 3D wants to play, but it is useful the ability to decode hardware via VP9 or video compressed in H.265 HEVC up to a maximum resolution of 4K and the possibility of connect up to a maximum of three screens using the HDMI output, the Displayport and VGA output (via an optional accessory). The allocation of doors includes 2 USB 3.0, 4 USB 2.0, headphone and microphone, PS / 2, RJ45 and two RS232 (RS232 and RS232 / RS422 / RS485).

The Apollo Lake Intel processors also have a very low thermal profile making it possible to equip the shuttle DX30 of a passive cooling system. It is therefore a device totally fanless no moving parts and completely silent. Inside, there is room for two So-DIMM DDR3L for a maximum capacity of 8GB of memory and a SATA 3.0 connector 6Gbps for storage.

 Very varies the allocation of ports and suitable for professional use

The fund networking with Gigabit Ethernet with Wake on LAN and WiFi 802.11b / g / n complete an extremely strong technical capabilities. The operating systems supported by Shuttle for its DX30 are Windows 10 and Ubuntu Linux .
