Cube, mobo blend new socket with old chipset
Shuttle has unveiled an interesting new cube that blends old and new technology inside a sleek "G5" series chassis. The SB775G5 mixes Intel's new LGA775 socket with the Canterwood 875P chipset, offering an intriguing upgrade path for those who aren't quite ready to give up their DDR400 memory or AGP graphics cards.
The SB775G5 isn't the only platform to meld an LGA775 socket to the 875P chipset. DFI's LANParty 875P-T serves up the new socket and older chipset on a full-size ATX board.
