AMD DTX to conquer SFF market?

Posted on Thursday, May 17 2007 @ 04:15:35 CEST by

Some motherboard makers believe the AMD DTX platform may be able to get the upper hand in the small form factor system market:
Intel is said will push the mini-ITX platform by listing it as recommended system and making it a SFF standard among its partners, according to sources at motherboard makers. However with mini-ITX considered as an entry-level PC platform, the platform is not sufficient for big PC makers to use in digital family products and multimedia market, noted the sources.

Since the DTX platform reduces size by eliminating two PCI-Express slots and the fact that it uses mainstream power supply standard and an open CPU structure, the platform provides more design options for motherboard makers.

However, with Intel Core 2 Duo processors providing low power performance for SFF products plus the new Centrino platform (Santa Rosa) lowering power consumption of processors to 25W in the MoDT (mobile on desktop) market, the SFF market should not be monopolize by any particular company, the sources pointed out.
