Two New Mini-Powerhouses from Shuttle

MPEG-2 Video Encoding: Main Concept

Since we had only outfitted the SN41G2 with an Athlon XP 2700+, it falls somewhat short of the Intel system with its P4 3.06 GHz. On the other hand, you can clearly see that using onboard graphics takes a nip out of performance (shared-memory concept). The blip in performance isn't as pronounced with the Shuttle SN41G2.

Audio Encoding: Mp3 Maker Platinum

mp3 Maker Platinum under Windows XP is used to convert a 178 MB sound file from a WAV format to an MPEG-1 Layer 3 format. The chart shows that both systems attained the same score as their ATX counterparts.
