By: Sverre Sjøthun


(May 13, 2003) Shuttle Inc, a leading provider of small form-factor (SFF) bare bones computers and mainboards, is proud to introduce the SN45G XPC. With a full palette of BIOS configurable overclocking tools built-in and support for AMD's advanced 400 MHz FSB Athlon™ XP 3200+ processors, the SN45G XPC redefines the market space created by Shuttle with the launch of the SN41G2 XPC earlier this year.

"Since the release of the phenomenally-successful SN41G2, overclocking and 400MHz FSB support have been the most-requested new features by our rapidly expanding customer base," enthused Ken Huang, vice president of systems R&D at Shuttle. "Today we're delivering that functionality and a great deal more with SN45G XPC."

Based on NVIDIA's industry-leading nForce2 Ultra and MCP-T chipsets – the first to support 400MHz FSB Athlon XP processors – the SN45G XPC offers exceptional performance and upgradeability:

- Full-featured overclocking with Athlon XP Burn Proof CPU protection technology
- Integrated Cooling Engine (ICE) with revolutionary Auto Guardian smart fan technology

These features and more are built into an enclosure that measures only 30 x 20 x 18,5 cm (11.9 x 7.9 x 7.3 inches) and weighs just 2.85kg (6.27lbs). The SN45G XPC can be upgraded and “modded” (modified) with Shuttle ’s extensive line of XPC accessories kits. Compatible Bluetooth dongle, remote control, etc kits are shipping and available today.

The XPC line, including the SN45G introduced today, provides users with portable systems that perform on par with or better than large, clunky ‘beige box’ PCs.
