Shuttle shipped over 600,000 XPCs in 2004, to volume ship nForce4 XPCs in mid-February
Esther Lam and Michael McManus, DigiTimes.com, Taipei [Wednesday 26 January 2005]

Shuttle Computer shipped 638,000 small-form-factor (SFF) computers in 2004, up 16% from the 550,000 XPCs it shipped in 2003, according to company sources.

The designer and manufacturer of small-form-factor (SFF) computers and accessories also continued to increase its focus on its XPC line in 2004, as it phased out its motherboard business of 20 years and formally announced a program to offer complete XPC systems worldwide.

A December 2004 report had Shuttle estimating that 20% of its XPC shipments last year were for PCI Express (PCIe) systems, while 80% were AGP-based. The company also expects to increase its ratio of PCIe systems to 50% in 2005.

Although Intel-based systems accounted for about 65% of the company's XPC shipments last year, and Shuttle’s AMD-based XPC shipments should soon receive a boost as the company is preparing to ship its SN25P XPC, which will be the first nForce4-based small-form-factor solution on the market. The SN25P is expected to begin shipping in volume in mid-February, with the official launch date set for February 22.

Europe and the US will account for 70% of the first shipments.

The SN25P will be the first small-form-factor PC to feature Hypertransport and PCIe. The AMD Socket-939 CPU-based solution will be housed in Shuttle’s P-chassis, which features a 350-watt power supply, the sources added.
