The Shuttle XPC SN41G2 Small Form Factor + nForce2 = Perfect Combination By, Marco Chiappetta February 27, 2003 There is no denying that Shuttle Inc., started a trend that got PC enthusiasts and mainstream users interested in SFF (Small Form Factor) systems.  Way back in December of 2001, we took a look at the SV24, and were immediately excited about the possibilities.  Other companies seem to have seen the potential market for these mini-systems as well, with Soyo, Iwill and Tyan, among others, all introducing similar products.  Shuttle definitely has a head start over the competition, however.  They have listened to the hardware community, incorporated new technology and...

Soyo SY-KT400 Dragon Ultra vs. Shuttle AK37GTR Showdown at the KT400 Corral! By, Robert Maloney November 6th, 2002 As another season comes upon us and another new chipset from VIA technologies is released into the market.  It seems like only yesterday (OK, January) that we were building our latest powerhouses based on the KT266A chipset.  Then along came the KT333, but it brought only a minor performance improvement.  Originally touted as having DDR400 as well as AGP 8x support, the KT400 was much anticipated as the next best thing since sliced bread, for the Athlon.  Early on, however, VIA dropped the DDR400 support, due to compatibility and performance issues.  Also,...

Shuttle's SS51G XPC Mini Barebones System The Baddest Mini of Them All! By, Jeff Bouton August 18, 2002   Ever since we saw the first mini PCs from Shuttle back in December, we've been impressed with the XPC Mini PCs themselves, as well as how quickly new models have become available.  Starting with the release of the SV24, the first of the mini PCs, we've seen Shuttle maintain a rigorous timeline, releasing new and improved models in rapid succession.  Yet with this aggressive timeline, we've seen no signs that Shuttle was cutting corners.  In fact, we have quite the opposite impression.  Instead, we've seen Shuttle add new features as well as make design improvements...

Shuttle's SS40G XPC Mini Barebones System! A Big Package with a Small Footprint By, Jeff Bouton August 13, 2002   Ever since our initial introduction to the first mini barebones PC from Shuttle, we were intrigued not only with its ground breaking design, but with the prospects of future "mini" machines as well.  The SV24 was the first in a rapidly growing line of mini barebones systems to be released by Shuttle, each bringing new features and improvements to the previous design.  The Pentium III based unit wasn't the most powerful system in the market, but it offered such features as USB, FireWire, onboard Ethernet, and TV-Out, making it very rich in features.  The...

Shuttle's SS50 Mini Barebones System! Good Things DO Come in Small Packages! By, Marco Chiappetta May 30, 2002 For years, the only decisions computer user's had to make, dealt with speed and capacity.  How fast is the CPU?  How big is the hard drive?  How much memory is included?  These types of questions were heard by prospecting computer sales people throughout the world.  Recently, in part due to the efforts of companies like Apple Computer and Compaq, things have changed.  The days of plain, beige computers are long gone, and now buyers can not only choose from an assortment of colors, but also an assortment of sizes.  Looking to capitalize on the trend...

  The Shuttle AK35GT2/R Motherboard Review Improving on a Proven Design By, Jeff Bouton May 16, 2002 We see a lot of hardware come through the Hot Hardware labs.  Every once in a while a piece comes along that stands out from the rest, making a lasting impression.  A few recent items that come to mind is the Hercules Game Theater XP, The Visiontek Ti Series video cards, and the Shuttle AK35GTR motherboard.  The AK35GTR was a real champ.  Built around the KT266A chipset, this board didn't have the flash and pizzazz of other high-end motherboards, but it delivered where it mattered most, in quality, performance and, of course, overclocking.  In fact, if you were to...

  Shuttle's SD-561 56X CD-ROM Drive A Frugal and Nimble Solution 3/14/00 - By, Marco ?BigWop? Chiappetta I?ve been around PC hardware for quite a while and have used just about every ?speed? CD-ROM since my trusty ol? Creative Labs 1X. Having used all these different drives I?ve learned a couple things:  1.) The speed on the box is usually not what you should expect and  2.) One company?s 50x is another?s 20x! With that being said, I introduce to you the Shuttle 56x CD-ROM.  Is it really a 56x Drive?  Let?s find out.  I?m not going to go too deeply into the specs of this drive, as they are very similar to just about any mid to high end drive out there, but these...

  Shuttle's AV40 VIA P4X266 DDR P4 Motherboard RAMBUS, watch your back, DDR comes to the P4 By, Dave Altavilla October 15, 2001 Here's a vocabulary word for you, "litigious".  Good one isn't it?  Before you get nervous that this is some sort of creative writing lesson, let me explain, as this word is very fitting for this article.  Stemming from the root word "litigate", a synonym for the word litigious would be "controversial".  As you are aware, "litigate" speaks of legal actions and law suits.  By now I think you see where I am going here.  The company RAMBUS and the DRAM technology it invented, has been a huge source...

Shuttle's AK31 Ver.3.1-vs- Epox's 8KHA+ Dueling KT266A Motherboard Action! By, Jeff Bouton November 26, 2001 If you are an avid PC enthusiast or even a knowledgeable investor, then you probably know that Intel has some serious competition these days.  With the latest reports of Athlon XP's "flying off the shelves" and VIA continuing to develop impressive chipsets, giving them an ever increasing share in the motherboard chipset markets, Intel is getting dings in its armor each and every day.  Although not the only combination of Chipsets and Processors in town, the teaming of both AMD and VIA has proven to be an impressive combination. Yielding ever increasing, and impressive... Read more...
