VR-Zone has the opportunity to talk to Ken Huang, the man behind XPC at
Shuttle HQ to know more about near term XPC plans. Shuttle will have a new
series of XPCs that support LGA775 Prescott in June and their primary concern is
the heat dissipation and power requirements. Therefore, Shuttle will have a
number of new enhancements made to the new XPCs such as cooling design and the
PSU. New cooling design will be made to the current one to support LGA775
Prescott up to 4Ghz and it will still be based on the cool heat pipe technology.
Efforts will be made to make XPC even quieter than before.

Also a new PSU of
more than 300W will be used to support the power hungry LGA775 Prescott that
consume over 110W and the design and placement is different from the current
series. Most probably the PSU design will look like the
AOpen XC
Cube
. Interestingly, Shuttle will have a new series of XPC that will follow
Intel’s BTX specs especially for the
PicoBTX
standard. Efforts from Shuttle have been put forward to Intel to make the
PicoBTX board slimmer so they can be fitted into the XPC. Among other things in
the near plans, Shuttle will have a case design based on the new Counterstrike
Condition Zero game as well as the
XP17 LCD monitor
will be ready by June with pricing unclear yet.
