Intel® G33 Express Chipset
A faster 1333 MHz system bus, DDR3 memory technology support and Intel® Fast Memory Access (Intel® FMA) deliver increased system performance for today's computing needs. Lower power consumption and Intel® Quiet System Technology (Intel® QST) enable quieter systems and innovative form factors. The combination of complementary technologies provides platform salability. Innovative I/O technologies speed up application load times, provide data protection, and improve overall system responsiveness.
Support up to 4GB DDR2 800 Dual Channel Memory
Intel Multi-Core processors consume very little power and generate very little heat. At the heart of Multi-Core processors is a 1066 MHz front-side bus for blistering fast communication with the system memory and video card. The G5 3300m is also paired with DDR2 800 system memory for an unbeatable performance combination.
*To fully utilize 4GB or more of memory requires a 64-bit enabled processor and 64-bit operating system.
Optional Blu-ray™ Optical Drive
Ready for a dramatic upgrade in your XPC G5 3300b's storage and high-definition viewing capabilities? Blu-ray Disc offers a flexible solution for movies, music, games and computer software and file storage.

Built-in Biometric Fingerprint Reader
Fingerprint biometrics is a convenient and secure way to protect your information.With an added a layer of security protection through the
integrated biometric fingerprint reader, you can keep your
digital identity and data more secure and no
longer worry about having to memorize for
memorizing multiple passwords.
Support Hot Pluggable eSATA Technology
Bringing the same performance and features to external storage needs instead of relying on USB or 1394 interfaces. You can now utilize shielded cable lengths up to 2 meters outside the XPC to take advantage of the benefits the SATA interface brings to storage.
Integrated Cooling Engine (ICE) Technology
The Integrated Cooling Engine (ICE) included in the G5 Series has been purpose designed for the G5-chassis. The Integrated Cooling Engine uses convection cooling to transfer heat away from the processor and other critical system components. Copper tubing, coated in nickel and filled with distilled water provide the conduit through which heat the radiator, providing both processor cooling an passes to a radiator.
Improving on the standard ICE module that ships with all G-series XPCs, the G5 series ICE module uses fans in push-pull to more efficiently pass cool air over the ICE radiators fins. This makes it possible to deliver up to 50CFM. Further both fans are PWM spec — which means linear control of the fan speed — and controllable in BIOS.
The XPC offers ample I/O connectivity, and then some. Features, such as the Clear CMOS button and Wireless LAN perforation, are Shuttle exclusives, and not seen in other small form factor computers.
The XPC's G5 3300 feature-rich back panel is perfectly complemented by an equally rich front panel. With USB 2.0, FireWire 400, HDMI Port, Built-in Gigabit Ethernet and eSATA Ports built into the real panel.
Intelligently designed and integrated, this multi-modal panel serves as a secondary display when the PC is in Home Theater mode. The idea behind this display is to improve media delivery by removing DVD, TV and video track information from the monitor and moving it to a display that does not interrupt viewing pleasure. For example, when watching TV, the LED will display the TV icon, channel as well as volume information.
PCW UK recommends D'vo G5 3300m
Personal Computer World is the UK’s longest-running and best established monthly consumer PC magazine providing cutting-edge news, recently recommends Shuttle XPC Glamor G5 3300m and rates 5 stars (out of 5 stars). The editor, Larsen indicates, 'we fitted the G5 3300m with high-end components and found it whisper-quiet in operation thanks to an intricate CPU heatsink, with heatpipes that transfer heat to the back of the unit where a fan whisks the hot air away. It was so quiet, in fact, that all we could hear was a stream of clicks from the hard disk...
D'vo G5 3300m wins the Most Innovative Award
"The Shuttle G5 3300m provides an excellent platform for streaming your favourite videos or music to your large-screen display or hi-fi set.
