- Wireless Networking
The Shuttle SB65G2 is the first Shuttle XPC we have received that includes an in-built USB wireless controller. Unfortunately the built-in wireless controller is only 802.11B but after recently looking further into some 802.11G networking equipment, we discovered that it might not be as big a deal as we thought as the faster 802.11G protocol tries to find its feet.
As well as the wireless adapter, we also have an onboard 10/100 LAN controller. This means you are not forced to using the slower wireless adapter. This will be a handy feature since these cases are so easy to move, "plugging" into a wireless network won't be a problem.
- Serial ATA Power
One feature that we didn't expect to find within the SB65G2 Shuttle was the inclusion of a Serial ATA power connector - something that is only making its way to latest power supplies now. It is little things like this that put Shuttle a head of the competition who are only just entering the game.
- The Motherboard
The motherboard in the Shuttle SB65G2 isn't anything spectacular but it does have everything we need to get an excellent Pentium 4 based system up and running. One thing you notice is that only two DDR slots are included but it should suffice for most people.
The motherboard uses the Intel Springdale chipset which is known to be one of the better Intel chipsets on the market right now, offering comparable performance to the more expensive PAT-enabled Canterwood. Shuttle also offers a Canterwood version of the XPC which we would assume is quicker due to it being an overall faster chipset.
