AMD announced development of DTX, an open standard specification designed by AMD to enable the broad adoption of small form factor PCs at the start of 2007. Now, more than ten months after the official announcement, we finally have our hands on a DTX system and have been able to take it for a brief test drive. Read on to see what has transpired over the past ten months!
"Over the past ten months AMD has brought the DTX specification from a design on paper to an actual product that works. It is obvious that AMD is listening to market demands, as just this year alone they have announced low-wattage 45W desktop processor offerings and the DTX specification that will help make HTPC's smaller, cooler and quieter. Now that AMD has gotten the ball rolling industry partners such as Albatron, Asus, Cooler Master, ECS, Gigabyte, MSI, Silverstone, and Thermaltake need to pick up the DTX form factor and run with it."
