The broad-spectrum desktop replacement: The Shuttle XPC SB62G2

2CPU, the one stop source for everything SMP (symmetric multitasking), has delved into the SFF world to provide an in-depth analysis of the Shuttle XPC SB62G2 with bundled Mandrake Linux 9.2 Discovery Edition Software. Ruling the SB62G2 as a great all-purpose desktop replacement, 2CPU summed up this baby as “a flexible quality product which will certainly be attractive to a wide array of users.”

“For a large web hosting company, I don’t think you could find a better alternative for … high volume web servers than an XPC,” noted Jim Kirk, 2CPU reviewer. “Not only would it be much more cost-effective than a comparable 1U rack mount machine, but it would be equally space efficient. Imagine a data center filled with stacks and stacks of XPCs. It would be an impressive sight, that’s for sure.”

Based on Intel's 865G + ICH5-R chipset, the XPC SB62G2 supports Intel processors up to 3.2GHz, dual-channel DDR 400, Serial ATA drives with RAID and all the connective options that you could ever need. Furthermore, with bundled Mandrake Linux 9.1, this performance XPC comes as a complete packaged barebone ready for any purpose.

“A graphical interface makes installing Mandrake 9.2 a breeze,” said Jim on Mandrake’s namesake Linux distribution. “Furthermore, all of the hardware worked out of the box.“
