This exhaustive test of common applications reveals that the Shuttle SD36G5M is up to the challenge in every respect. Although only winning by a fraction of a point, the Shuttle SFF system is able to claim a victory over the other two systems.

Much like the scenario above, the Shuttle SD36G5M walks away with the highest overall score of the group. It seems we are beginning to see the maturity of Shuttle's methods due to their familiarity with designing SFF platforms, as the system is able to turn in exceptional scores time after time.
