CHIP GIANT Intel told its customers that its channel platform group (CPG) and its digital enterprise group (DEG) have come to a decision about the problematical BTX chassis design.<br />
The blokes have had a conflab which they call a re-assessment of the the "current market environment", and have cut the Gordian Knot by deciding not to make BTX stuff for the channel, as part of a "small form factor" strategy.<br />
<br />
It will carry on simplifying the SKUs for the channel and in any case low power Core 2 Duo microprocessors somewhat mitigate the need for BTX as part of an "acoustical value proposition".<br />

I hope this means they will consolidate all of their form factors, there are way too many slightly varied form factors IMO, I think all we need are ATX, mATX, and E-ATX, all other standards should be consolidated into these three to make life easier for everyone involved.

If you consider the majority of PC users, <b>most</b> use standard ATX. E-Atx for servers, and MicroATX for, well, small people.<br />
<br />
I agree with you, and I also think that the market for "specialty" form factors is non-existent, if not dwindling heavily.

Ahh the wonders of server cases, especially when it has 4 hdds, 2 optical drives, is made of steel, and has a load of heavy components <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb">
