- 865G Small Form Factor Roundup

Our friends at FiringSquad have been busy as usual, this time with a roundup of some 865G (Springdale) based small form factor pc's. They've collected AOpen's XC Cube EZ65, Biostar's iDEQ 200T, Shuttle's SB61G2R 20th Anniversary Special Edition (oooh!), and last but definitely not least (quite the contrary in fact), Soltek's Qbic EQ3401.

 

Shuttle was the first company to successfully tap into this market with their line of XPCs. Since the debut of their first XPC, the SV24, Shuttle has sold millions of SFF systems worldwide and has emerged as the leader in the SFF market. However, in more recent months Shuttle's XPCs have been rivaled by newer players such as Biostar with their iDEQ line and Soltek with their Qbic series. Larger motherboard manufacturers such as ABIT and MSI have also entered the SFF market with their DigiDice and MEGA systems respectively, and motherboard titan ASUS has quietly introduced its DigiMatrix, which looks just like a piece of stereo equipment. FIC's ICE Cube-VG61 offered more features than the equivalent Shuttle XPC of its time, and impressed us so much we awarded it a Bull's Eye. Clearly the number of options has never been greater.
