Shuttle launches ATI Radeon 200 SFF PC, strengthens its AMD K8 PCIe XPC lineup
Michael McManus, DigiTimes.com, Taipei [Thursday 10 March 2005]

Shuttle continues to fill out its lineup of K8 PCI Express (PCIe) small-form-factor (SFF) PCs with today’s introduction of the XPC ST20G5, based on the ATI Technologies (ATI) Radeon Xpress 200 chipset. The product will complement Shuttle’s recently introduced K8 PCIe XPC SN25P, which is based on the Nvidia nForce4 chip.

The new XPC ST20G5 is the first SFF PC to be based on ATI’s Xpress 200 chipset, whose integrated graphics are based on the Radeon X300 core. The integrated part includes support for DirectX9, vertex shader 2.0 and pixel shader 2.0, and will be partnered with ULi’s 1573 southbridge in the XPC ST20G5.

A key feature of the ATI Xpress 200 chip is support for multiple displays, and Shuttle has included both DVI and VGA outputs with the system, so that two monitors can be used. The XPC ST20G5 also includes one PCIe x16 slot, and if a PCIe graphics card is added, a third display can also be used.

According to a representative from Shuttle, the XPC ST20G5 will be targeted to the mainstream, and will be priced lower than the nForce4-based XPC SN25P, which is targeted toward gamers. Although the SN25P just began shipping, another Shuttle representative stated that the system is selling very well, especially in Japan.

The XPC ST20G5 is expected to begin shipping in April and will be available as a system or barebones unit from Shuttle’s offices in the US, Europe and Taiwan.
