Original Press Release:
Doubly Good: The Shuttle XPC Barebones SG31G2 for the Office and SG31G5 for the Home
ELMSHORN, Germany, August 20/ / -
- In Two Colours, Two Designs, and Supporting up to Two Monitors
Shuttle Inc, small form factor (SFF) PC market leader and manufacturer of
multi form factor solutions, today introduced two more products from its
successful XPC Barebones range. Designed for use in the office, and at home,
the new models are ideal foundations on which to build a PC system utilising
multi-core Intel processors.
These all-rounders are available in two chassis variations. The Shuttle
XPC Barebone SG31G2 features the proven styling of the G2 design, whereas the
SG31G5 sports the pure looks of the G5. For a larger display area, and
greater convenience when working, both models are capable of supporting up to
two monitors, thanks to their Intel GMA 3100 graphics.
"With the SG31G5, as with as the G2, we're offering an ideal platform for
powerful small form factor PC systems, based on Intel technology," explains
Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "The
integrated Intel G31 Express chipset supports soon to be available 45 nm
processors, thereby equipping these PCs for the future."
With up to 4 GB of DDR2 800 RAM, they also have more than enough memory
for demanding applications, and their gigabit LAN guarantees the maximum
transfer of data through networks. Windows Vista runs without any problems,
thanks to the integrated DirectX 9 compatible Intel Graphics Media
Accelerator 3100, and the necessary drivers supplied with the PCs. And for
even greater 3D performance, the PCI Express X16 slot can accommodate the
latest graphics cards.
Shuttle's patented Heatpipe Cooling technology, with its variable speed
control, automatically ensures that everything's taken care of inside of the
high-quality aluminium Shuttle XPC Barebones, so guaranteeing both the
greatest stability and super quiet operation.
Long life solid capacitors, colour marked slots, a powerful 250-Watt
power supply, 8-channel HD audio, 6x USB, 2x FireWire, and a 32 bit PCI slot
round off these 300(L) x 200(W) x 185(H) sized computers.
Both of these Shuttle XPC Barebones will be available in the beginning of
September. Shuttle's recommended retail price is EUR 227 for the SG31G2, and
EUR 252 for the SG31G5 (without VAT).
