Shuttle SD37P2 SFF Core 2 Duo Review

The Core 2 Duo release has raised many eye brows as of late. HTPC users are also excited with Intel finally releasing fast and cool running chips that would work well in a Small Form Factor case. The problem with the new Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors is existing Socket T (LGA775) compatible motherboards are not compatible with the new processors due to different voltage requirements. This means the existing 945G Express based Shuttle SD31P is incompatible with new Core 2 processors. However in time for Intel's recent processor launch Shuttle has a brand new toaster-sized small form factor system. Coupling the new P2 chassis with a Core 2 compatible motherboard Shuttle is unleashing the SD37P2 onto the world. Read the review here.

Shuttle's latest small form factor has the specifications of a high end desktop with the Intel 975X Express and ICH7R as its foundation. With the Intel 975 Express chipset the SD37P2 will accommodate all Socket T (LGA775) including the recently released Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Extreme and previously released Pentium D and Celeron D processors with 800 MHz and 1066 MHz front-side buses.
