Pimptastic or not masculine enough? At least Magpies won't argue.
Things might have been slow for our dear old XPC maker for the last six months, but now a whole plethora of chipsets have been released we are set to see a load of new Shuttles.
That’s not all though because the new G6 case gives the G-series a proper star studded make over.
Shuttle has incorporated a load of little "diamond like" plastic studs into the fascia, which offer an interesting and certainly unique look to the front of the case.
The two XPCs – the SN68PTG6 and the SG33G6 – use the Nvidia GeForce 7050PV and Intel G33 chipsets respectively. Both have HDCP compliant HDMI on-board, DTS Connect 7.1 surround sound, integrated WiFi, DDR2 and fingerprint recognition as standard. They are primarily aimed at the HTPC market, so it could certainly work for a family media centre, but it's not exactly a broad market to aim for.
Puzzled as to why Shuttle has effectively cut itself short, Rockson Chiang, Marketing division Manager pointed out Shuttle’s aim was to cover a broad market with many specific products.
