Shuttle debuts 'deluxe, glamorous' SFF PC

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Shuttle has brought Intel's G33 integrated chipset to its XPC line of barebone small form-factor PCs, this one using the company's "glamorous" G6 casing and due to hit the shelves with 'Deluxe' appended to its name.

Officially, the new machine is the XPC SG33G6. The PC's G33-based motherboard provides sockets for up to 4GB of dual-channel DDR 2 memory clocked to a standard 800MHz or overclocked to 1066MHz. It'll take LGA-775 interconnected processors capable of running on an 800MHz, 1066MHz or 1333MHz frontside bus.

So that's the Celeron 400 line, the Core 2 Duos, Core 2 Quads and Pentium Dual-Core from Intel's current CPU line-up.

Graphics are powered by the G33's DirectX 9-compatible GMA 3100 graphics core, but the SG33G6 has a PCI Express x16 slot for a more advanced graphics card. The chipset provides eight-channel HD audio, and the PC has codec chips for Dolby Digital Live! and DTS Connect.

As the machine stands, it has HDMI output, along with a pair of Firewire ports, six USB connectors, SPDIF digital audio and Gigabit Ethernet. It also comes with an 802.11b/g Wi-Fi module and a Bluetooth 2.0+EDR adaptor. It has a fingerprint reader too.

Internally, the SG33G6 has three 3Gbps SATA ports, and there are a pair of eSATA connectors on the back. The whole shebang's fed with a 300W power supply.

Due very soon, the SG33G6 will retail for €366 (£251) excluding local sales taxes.
