First Athlon 64 Barebone System Reviewed: Shuttle SN85G4


Today we would like to offer you our review of the first small form-factor PC for AMD Athlon 64 processors. Of course, the system belongs to Shuttle. Although their new SN85G4 barebone is pretty small, it hides the power of Athlon 64 and nForce3....

Shuttle's XPC SN85G4 small form factor system


AMAZINGLY, SHUTTLE has managed to keep its XPC line of small form factor...

The SN85G4 extends Shuttle's technology leadership in the small form factor world. The SN85G4 is the first and so far only small form factor system to support AMD's brand new Athlon 64 processor, and while other manufacturers will no doubt jump on the...

Shuttle XPC SN85G4: a barebone system for Athlon 64, in a new case


We have recently tested a new Shuttle XPC — the SN85G4 model. Don't rush to say there can be nothing new and interesting about Shuttle. First, the model was made for Athlon 64 CPUs, and it was announced at the same time with the line of 64-bit AMD...

Shuttle SN85G4 AMD Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 / Sempron AMD Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 150 Barebone


As a followup to my previous post... The SN85G4 works perfectly fine. It's the eVGA GeForce FX 5700 that is the problem. This video card lacks the onboard 4-pin molex power connector and pulls all of its' power through the AGP slot which trips the...

great shuttle


This case is great, has built in SATA (which renders a small problem but I'll get to that in a bit) and has many optical audio channels which I'll probably never use. I got an athlon 64 3400 with 1MB of cache and it ran it great and all. Now the...

Shuttle SN85G4 AMD Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 / Sempron AMD Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce3 150 Barebone


The case/etc is great and all. But I wanted to post an extremely important warning for those buying a 3400+ CPU to go inside. You will be unable to boot off of anything except an external floppy, or maybe USB unless your XPC comes with the latest...

Product Specifications

Based on the NVIDIA nForce 3 150 chipset, the SN85G4 computer delivers support for AMD Athlon 64 processors, DDR400 memory and Serial ATA RAID. With advanced HyperTransport chip-to-chip interconnect technology providing unprecedented bandwidth, the SN85G4 XPC represents a quantum leap in SFF computer technology integration and performance. With the AMD Athlon 64 processor built in Shuttle's XPC SN85G4 you will be able to run 64-bit applications at full performance and simultaneously run 32-bit software applications with no performance penalty. Its integrated memory controller boosts performance by directly connecting the processor to the memory and dramatically reducing memory latency. A highly scalable system bus using HyperTransport technology is designed to provide more than one and a half times the throughput of other competing technologies. Users will enjoy vivid realism and richer sound on digital entertainment such as games, streaming video and audio, DVDs, and music.
