Small form-factor barebones PC maker Shuttle today introduced its first Socket 939 Athlon 64 model, claiming the new machine will out-perform the company's Intel-oriented offerings.

Shuttle XPC SN95G5 Socket 939 Athlon 64 SFF PCThe XPC SN95G5 follows the earlier introduction of the Socket 754-based SK83G and SN85G4. Like the latter, the new model is based on an Nvidia chipset, in this case the nForce 3 Ultra, with its 2GHz HyperTransport frontside bus. It also supports AGP 8x, Serial ATA with RAID, Gigabit Ethernet, Firewire, eight USB 2.0 ports and PCI. Shuttle offers an optional add-in Wi-Fi card.

The system's host CPU provides access to 400MHz DDR SDRAM in a dual-channel configuration.

The SN95G5 features an all-new integrated cooling engine heat-pipe module, including a 92mm fan featuring linear control and advanced airflow mechanics making it one of the coolest, quietest sFF computers, Shuttle claims.

The company also reckons it's the fastest: "When matched with an AMD Athlon 64 processor [the SN95G5] is the best-performing SFF PC in the world today - hands down," boasted Shuttle's enthusiastic chairman, David Yu. And that, no doubt, includes Shuttle's own Intel offerings.

Shuttle did not disclose pricing. ®
