For months now we have been passing along bits of information on the Sugo SG02, and while this SFF chassis has still not been released, SilverStone is already hard at work designing the Sugo SG03. We have heard from a credible source that the SilverStone Sugo SG03 is indeed under development. While the Sugo SG02 remains nearly the same as the Sugo SG01 Evolution with a few exceptions, the SilverStone Sugo SG03 will introduce a completely different design concept. Initially the Sugo SG03 was slated for release later this year, but with the delays faced by the SG02, the Sugo SG03 will likely not make its public appearance until the middle of next year -- perhaps at Computex Taipei 2007. The details are few at time, but we will continue to work on acquiring additional information on this SFF chassis. In the mean time, feel free to share your thoughts on the SilverStone Sugo series at the Phoronix Forums, where we also have additional details on the Sugo SG02.
