Ryzen processor in Mini-PC: Shuttle’s first AMD barebone

Ryzen processor in Mini-PC of Shuttle’s first AMD barebone in eight years
AMD is back. With the XPC DA320, the manufacturer is bringing a small 1.3-litre barebone for Ryzen CPUs onto the market.

The Shuttle is launching a new barebone PC under the name XPC DA320. It is an AM4 system for Ryzen processors, the manufacturer’s first AMD computer in eight years.

Combination processors with integrated graphics units from the Ryzen 2000G, Ryzen 3000G and Athlon 200 (0) series can be installed in the 1.3-litre housing – the mainboard BIOS apparently cannot do anything with newer models from the 4000 series. Up to 32 GByte DDR4-SDRAM can be inserted in two SO-DIMM slots. It depends on the Ryzen processor with clock frequencies of up to DDR4-2933.

A 2.5-inch drive slot with SATA 6G connection is available for mass storage, and two M.2 slots are also on board: The M2280 version is intended for an SSD, while the 2230E space for an optional WLAN module is designed. There are already two perforations in the housing for its antennas.

Connections for Company Use

There are two RJ45 ports for Gigabit Ethernet on the back ex-works. An HDMI 2.0 and two DisplayPort 1.4 connections are also integrated here, and a VGA output can be added as an option. Shuttle also installs two USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5 GBit / s) and two USB 2.0 on the rear, above which the manufacturer also integrates two 9-pin D-Sub connectors for the RS-232 connection.

There are 4 USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5 GBit / s), an SD memory card reader, audio input and output in the front panel. The 120-watt power supply unit for the power supply is external, as is the case with other systems in the XPC series – the two fans are also in the same place on the top of the computer, which is approved for an ambient temperature of up to 50 degrees Celsius.

A VESA adapter is included in the package; optionally, two XPC DA320s can be integrated into a 2U rack front panel. All specifications can be found on the product page. As a recommended retail price for the barebone system, Shuttle calls for 236 euros (including VAT). It is already much cheaper in stores.
