BTX standard gradually sees market adoption

Posted on Thursday, January 12 2006 @ 5:11 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck reports the BTX standard is finally getting some adoption:

"Is BTX standard dead? From all the silence, you would think so, but that's not the case. Intel is still pushing the BTX standard as much as it can, but unfortunately, the market isn't responding as well as Intel thought it would. At CES 2006, case makers pointed out that the world's largest chipmaker is working with case manufacturers and the industry to encourage BTX, but since ATX is still the preferred standard, BTX is having a troubling time keeping up. On the positive side of things, however, Intel supported standard is gradually picking up."
