Shuttle SS40 Barebones Review @ Lost Circuits

| Posted: Jul 9, 2002 5:34 am

Lost Circuits have taken a look at the Shuttle SS40 barebones system featuring the SiS 740 chipset for the AMD Athlon platform. I'm hungry for one of these units, hopefully we'll have a review for you soon!

 

With the SS40 XPC, built around the SIS 740 chipset, Shuttle completes the series of their miniature cube systems. Featuring all integrated peripherals known from the SV24 and SS50, the SS40 pushes things a bit further by using heatpipe technology for cooling at reduced noise levels. The onboard graphics is the SIS 315 controller as used in the SIS 650 chipset and offers adequate but not spectacular performance. We have used the PCI version of the 3dfx VooDoo5 to look at performance issues that can probably best be described as frame buffer versus bandwidth. Can a lower power fan reduce the noise even further? We got something hot off the press to say about that, too.
