Intel set to kill BTX in 2007

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Wouldnt surprise me. I dont think BTX had a very good launch.


Quote:
THE WORD IS OUT among people in the channel. According to next year's line-up, the Intel has decided not to release a single BTX motherboard. Current BTX and picoBTX motherboards will be replaced with ATX and µATX form factors.
The Bearlake chipset will be introduced in second quarter of 2007, and Intel has reserved a grand total of four products for Q2'07 with two more products in Q3'07. Dragontail Peak (Bearlake-P NorthBridge with ICH9DH SouthBridge chips) and Frostburg (BearLake-G and ICH9) are utilising the ATX form factor, while Johannesburg/Montpelier (BearLake-Q and ICH9DO) and Buffalo Creek (BearLake-G and ICH9) come in the µATX form factor.

In Q3'07, Intel will introduce Bonetrail, successor to the high-end D975XBX (known as Bad Axe) motherboard. Based on the BearLake-X chipset, this baby brings support for 1.33GHz FSB and DDR3 memory at 1.06GHz. Form factor? ATX, of course.

Kill it? I was hoping it would become more mainstream since it allows for much more efficient and silent air cooling.

It does allow for better aircooling depending on what case you get of course. However as it didnt launch very well and is knowwhere near as popular as ATX then Intel would lose money on creating a motherboard product that would not sell sufficiently.

Yeah, BTX had potential, it just wasn't launched right and not supported well......

Oh i see. Well even though they use less power they can still get pretty toasty.

BTX was a nice idea and all. But people want SFF computers. They want mini towers and such. I know they have Mbtx but still BTX isnt a SFF solution
