By the end of this month Shuttle will start shipping its SLI compatible XPC SN26P system, according to DigiTimes. This SFF system will be launched in Taiwan, Japan, Europe and the US at the same time.
The product was originally scheduled to hit the market this summer and be bundled with two Leadtek Nvidia GeForce 6800 GT PCI Express (PCIe) graphics cards. However, with Nvidia releasing its Nvidia’s GeForce 7800 GT in August, Shuttle decided to hold off the SN26P launch until the company could complete its testing of graphics cards equipped with 7800 series chips.
However, although the SN26P XPC will support GeForce 7800 series graphics cards, Shuttle has decided not to bundle any graphics cards with the system, allowing its distributors more flexibility with their SKUs, the company stated
The system will use the NVIDIA nForce 4 SLI chipset and will support single and dual-core AMD Athlon 64 Socket 939 CPUs as well as up to 2GB of DDR memory and two Serial ATA 2 HDDs.
