Wow, HP may have been the first major company to launch a small form factor system aimed at the workstation market, but it seems like they must have broken the dam. Shuttle, known for their pint-sized systems that still pack the power, is following in the steps of bigger companies like HP and Lenovo and launching a new small form factor workstation.
The Pro Series line of Shuttle systems takes the small case that Shuttle is largely known for and peps it up with workstation-class components. Among the options are dual- and quad-core Intel and AMD CPUs, NVIDIA Quadro FX and ATI FirePro graphics cards – there will even be a six-core Intel-based system launching in June. Considering the size constraints, that’s fairly impressive.
Two of the new systems, the J1 4100P and G2 7600P are available today at Shuttle’s US site, starting at $899.
