It's been a little while since we've heard anything from XPC makers "Shuttle" but they've just made up for it with the release of two new additions to their highly popular small form factor XPC lineup.
The XPC SD36G5M is an LGA775 Intel based unit, focused primarily for HTPC/Media Center use. This XPC is also the first to carry Intel's "Viiv Technology Ready" logo. More on Viiv here.
Also now available is the AMD based SN21G5 XPC which utilizes NVIDIA's nForce 410 MCP and onboard GeForce 6100 GPU.
Head of XPC Barebone Product Marketing, Troy Yang made the announcement. "Combining the most popular features of previous XPC products with the latest advances in PC technology, the XPC SD36G5M and XPC SN21G5 are aimed to be the most versatile XPC solutions for mainstream home or office users in 2006."
The XPC SD36G5M and XPC SN21G5 retain the look and feel of successful XPC products from previous years: both are based upon Shuttle's G5 chassis, generally regarded as the company's most stylish and refined design; (and one if the smallest) and both are compatible with standard PC components making them easy to assemble and upgrade. Upon this solid platform Shuttle have incorporated the features and technological improvements that will help these XPCs become the home, media center, and office market segment leaders in 2006.
