- Shuttle XPC SB86i delivers standards based innovation

Today marks the launch of yet another new XPC from Shuttle Inc. - The new SB86i differs from any previous XPC offering in that it is the first SFF to be based upon the new pico-BTX design specification. The system makes use of Intel's 915G chipset allowing for x16 PCIe graphics (as an alternative to the inbuilt DX9 capable Intel GMA 900 GPU), and a host of other additional features. Looks like we'll start to see these up for grabs by the end of the year. Further details in the official press release here folks.


(Taipei, Taiwan - November 15, 2004) Shuttle Inc, the leading designer and manufacturer of small form factor (SFF) computers and accessories, today introduces the XPC SB86i, the first commercial application of the pico-BTX design specification. The latest in a long line of market and industry firsts for Shuttle, the XPC SB86i once again resets the bar for performance, style and value in the highly competitive home, SOHO and business desktop market segments.
