Shuttle Launches SFF NVIDIA SLI Ready XPC

For some reason, I really like Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs and now Shuttle has formally launched one on steroids:

The XPC SN26P is the world’s first small form factor system based on the NVIDIA nForce4 SLI chipset. Designed to support GeForce 7 series graphics cards, this award winning barebone is a must-have component of the ultimate gaming system.

(Taipei, Taiwan — September 27, 2005) Shuttle Inc – the world’s leading manufacturer of small form factor PCs and accessories – has today released final details of its much anticipated gaming barebone, the XPC SN26P. Previewed by a number of hardware review websites and magazines earlier in the year, the XPC SN26P has, even before today’s launch, earned itself numerous awards including “Most Innovative Product” awards from websites HardwareZone and VRZone.

At its core the XPC SN26P is powered by NVIDIA’s most advanced chipset, the nForce4 SLI. This gives the system enthusiast level performance features including full support for AMD socket 939 processors, SATA 3Gb/s hard drives with RAID, and gigabit Ethernet with hardware acceleration and firewall. 7.1 channel surround sound is enabled by the popular Via Envy24PT audio processor. The barebone has been approved to be compatible with NVIDIA GeForce 7 series graphics cards in SLI configuration, a list of compatible cards is available on the Shuttle website. The barebone will not require the specially designed SLI heat-pipe cooler as seen in prerelease models.The XPC SN26P has begun shipping around the world and should be available in stores in less than one week.

The specs page is here and The Register has some background on the preview program.
