Shuttle has unveiled a new barebones small form factor PC based on Intel's latest mid-range core logic chipset, the P35 Express. Thanks to the new chipset, the XPC Prima SP35P2 Pro supports new Intel processors with 1333MHz front-side bus speeds and is set for upcoming 45nm "Penryn" dual- and quad-core chips.
The barebones also features support for up to 8GB of DDR2-800 memory, and it comes with one PCI Express x16 slot, one 32-bit PCI slot, six 300MB/s Serial ATA ports (four internal and two external), Gigabit Ethernet, and FireWire. The built-in power supply is rated for 400W of power output and efficiency above 80%, which should help the XPC deal with power-hungry graphics cards and CPUs.
In addition, Shuttle has outfitted the SP35P2 Pro with some extra perks: a "USB Speed-Link" feature allows file sharing between two systems with a plain old USB cable, and a built-in fingerprint recognition security system can supposedly help users dispense with passwords and login details.
