Tiny, silent Shuttle PC boasting full openSuse compatibility

Shuttle XS 3510MA ION2 mini-pc - Printer Friendly version

just out of curiosity. How good is the graphics on this tiny pc? I assume its good enough. The reason why i am asking is, i am looking for a small foot print pc that doesn’t consume a lot of power.
But i am assuming it will be not a small game pc. I always dream.

Good at least that OpenSuse works on it. Great news indeed.

Hi Joerg, I should have said that I have nothing at all to do with this, nor do I know anything about it, I just happened upon it whilst googling about and looking for some info re. the rtl chipset and openSuse.
I thought it was interesting that it was badged as openSuse compliant.

Since it doesn’t seem to have much in the way of cooling needs, I’d
expect the graphics are “good enough” for running a server but not
something one would want to use for gaming.

The ION2 chipset is good enough for an HD media center, but for games the Atom D-510 processor, although reasonably fast, won’t run last-generation games (whatever that means). Atoms with Intel video for media center won’t play HD (720p and above), only avi (and maybe 480p, or maybe not). And games 5 or more years old.

ION and ION2 are nvidia’s attempt to stay on the netbook market, but I’m afraid Intel Atom platform is killing them (and with much inferior video at that).

Well, its a nice little pc that for sure. It may not fit my needs, but for regular stuff it may be ok.
Still, thanks for the info.
