AMD DTX Small Form Factor System Sneak Peek

Posted on Tuesday, October 23 2007 @ 07:40:48 CEST by

When AMD first revealed their plans for the DTX open industry standard, the intent of that early briefing was to explain AMD’s vision for interoperable small form factor systems. As it stands today, most SFF systems from large companies like Dell and HP are proprietary designs. On the do-it-yourself front, we’ve got form factors like Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX and SFF barebones systems from major players like Shuttle, Asus and MSI. However, for the most part you can’t take parts from one company’s SFF design and use it in another’s. Today AMD provided more details and a specific design example of the DTX small form-factor standard. This HotHardware article showcases a prototype system built on a low power AMD Athlon 64 BE-2350 processor and 690G chipset motherboard with integrated graphics.

“If all goes to plan and AMD’s vision for DTX comes to fruition, there will be a set of industry standards for chassis, power supplies, and motherboards which would not only make it possible for larger companies to more quickly introduce small form factor designs, but do-it-yourselfers would have an array of off the shelf components to choose from as well.”
