Support the Intel 22nm Ivy Bridge ProcessorCompared to its predecessor Sandy Bridge, the new design benefits Shuttle SZ77R5 which brings some improvements in overall performance, overclocking, power management and also features PCIe v3.0 and DDR3-1600 capability, an updated DirectX 11 graphics, new security features and CPU instructions.
Intel® Z77 Express ChipsetThe Z77 chipset consists of a single chip and integrates the hard drive controller, network controllers, monitor and physical interfaces, PCIe links and other input/output functionalities. It combines the advantages of the predecessor Z68 plus native support for four USB 3.0 ports.
The New R5 Chassis DesignShuttle has always placed great emphasis on the interior and exterior aesthetics of the XPC, with the belief that a good blend of style and form factor allows the XPC to be attractive, versatile, and work well in almost any environment. R5 is the new chassis design for the middle to high-end series XPCs in the year 2012. The chassis and case cover are made of aluminum and come with a sleek brushed metal front fascia.
Support PCI Express X16 Gen. 3.0The SZ77R5 supports the new PCI-Express x16 Version 3.0 specification in combination with the 22nm Intel Ivy Bridge processor slot delivering a bandwidth of up to 16GB/s which is twice the speed of PCI-E 2.0. It offers backward compatibility with PCI-E 1.0 and PCI-E 2.0 devices. There is plenty of potential for PC users who aim to optimize the graphics performance.
Intel® Rapid Storage TechnologyIntel® Rapid Storage Technology offers new levels of protection, performance, and expandability for desktop platforms. By seamlessly storing copies of data on one or more additional hard drives, any hard drive can fail without data loss or system downtime. When the failed drive is removed and a replacement hard drive is installed, data fault tolerance is easily restored. The SZ77R5 has the capacity for four 2.5” HDDs by replacing with Shuttle PHD3 3.5” to 2.5” HDD rack.
Intel® Smart Response TechnologyThe Shuttle XPC Barebone SZ77R5 supports the much anticipated Intel Smart Response Technology which allows a SATA solid-state drive (SSD up to 60GB) to function as cache for a conventional hard disk drive (HDD). It uses intelligent block-based caching of frequently used applications to improve system performance and responsiveness.
Native USB 3.0 SupportThe SZ77R5 sports four USB 3.0 ports (2x front, 2x rear) and USB 2.0 x6 ports. USB 3.0 achieves a maximum data rate of up to 5.0Gbps (640MBytes/sec) USB 3.0 also comes with better power saving features to let your devices consume less power when in idle mode.
Support Dual Slot Graphic CardWith the space-efficient design, the SZ77R5 is as roomy as it gets. Not only it’s space-saving but also it maximizes the need for high-end users and markets. The designs for dual-slot graphic cards provide the users a faster and smarter performance.
* Supports high-end graphics card AMD Radeon™ HD 7970 and NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 680.
Support 2x mini card slotsShuttle SZ77R5 features two Mini-Card expansion slots. One is a half size Mini-PCI-Express slot dedicated for Wireless LAN adapter cards. The second features a combo port with Mini-PCI-Express &mSATA interface (Mini Serial ATA) which supporting the new generation of Solid State Drives (SSD) in a compact Mini PCIe card form factor.
Quick Charge USB PortThe Shuttle Smart USB Port is a USB port which allows fast power charging when a smart phone or tablet PC plugin is detected. It is designed to feed power up to 5V/2A(varies with different smart devices) no matter when the system power is on or off.
* Smart USB port compatible for Shuttle R5 series models
* 2A only available for Windows XP and Windows 7 O.S. The normal charge 500mA applies to other mobile devices and Linux O.S.
