    New Shuttle XPC SB81P

    Shuttle PR Blurb

    An all-new enclosure with the performance, integration and drive bays demanding users want
    (Taipei, Taiwan — June 1, 2004) Shuttle Inc, a leading designer and manufacturer of small form factor (SFF) computers and motherboards, today introduces the XPC SB81P, the world's first SFF computer based on the leading-edge FB81 motherboard. Featuring support for 16X PCI E graphics cards, an all-new ICE (integrated cooling engine) cooling system, 350W Silent X power supply and more, the XPC SB81P redefines performance computing.

    "The XPC SB81P offers a new benchmark for performance and integration," said CK Hung, CEO, Shuttle. "Excitement leading up to this introduction has been very high among our user base — this is a great day for Shuttle and our customers."
    Featuring Shuttle's all-new "P" series chassis, the SB81P delivers integrated RAID functionality and bays for three 3.5-inch hard disk drives (screwless installation). Further, with next-gen integrated graphics, next-gen I/O architecture and eight-channel audio, as well as a full palette of integrated I/O ports, users get a fully functional solution right out of the box.

    The XPC SB81P’s completely redesigned cooling system includes Shuttle’s an all-new ICE heat pipe module, advanced airflow dynamics and re-engineered cooling fans with linear control metrics. Taken together these technologies make the cooling integrated into the XPC SB81P one of the most-advanced available in a mass-market computer today.
    Shuttle has once again raised the SFF performance bar while simultaneously refining ergonomics and style with the introduction of the XPC SB81P. Contact your local Shuttle authorized dealer for additional details.


    Looks like its going to be very different from the existing models

    is it just me or does the change in the aesthetics make that look fugly?

    Of course I understand the idea, more flexibility and all, but personally I want SFF for the fact its SFF and the fact it looks cool, all that looks like is Shuttle plugged an air pump in the VGA socket for 20 minutes...

    Well, atleast no people can set up a decent raid array with it. And with this new cooling system (am i reading that blurb right, its got new cooling aswell as ICE?) it might be a useful raid server. Looks very different from the other models, not personally my favourite, looks more like a mini tower i think

    Mattz there was a great deal of demand for shuttles with more space in them , looks like shuttle are listening to their customers

    You may not want the extra space but there are others who do

    Doubt it would fit as this new shuttle appears to have about an extra inch or two over a standard shuttle to fit it (and the extra 3.5" bay) in.

    OH MY GOD!!! The new G5 case is absolutley gorgeous! Man I want one so bad, especially in the silver. And the new ICE system on the P is pretty interesting with the fan blowing across the case rather than through it. Is that the new intel BTX specs?

    Goordy,

    I don't deny that mate, as I said I do see the functionality and the idea, I am just not really sure you can class it as SFF anymore because of the stretched shape, th is just, of course, my opinion

    I think the SFF format as we know it will have to evolve in a similar manner if you still want the latest technology in it. I think you will see the SFF scene split soon and you will have larger format for the new technology and smaller ones for living room type installs.

    When you consider that matx cases are considered sff and the Antec aria are also considered sff this shuttle is smaller than both of them so would have to be a SFF also surely?
