What are the characteristics of BTX

By  Anatola Perna 2020-01-08 1226 219

BTX is the abbreviation of the new motherboard architecture BalancedTechnologyExtended proposed by Intel, and it is the replacement of ATX structure, which is similar to the replacement of AT and BabyAT by ATX a few years ago. The revolutionary change is that the new BTX specification can achieve the smallest size without sacrificing performance. The new architecture will have new requirements for interfaces, buses and devices. The important thing is that all the current disorganized, disorganized, noisy PCs will soon be out of date. Of course, the new architecture still provides some degree of backward compatibility in order to achieve a smooth transition to the technological revolution.

BTX has the following characteristics:

1, Supporting Low-profile, that is, narrow plate design, the system structure will be more compact;

2, For the movement of heat dissipation and air flow, the circuit layout of the motherboard has been optimized;

3, The installation of the motherboard will be easier, and the mechanical performance will also be optimized.

Moreover, BTX provides good compatibility. At present, there are several derivative versions of BTX, which are divided into standard BTX (325.12mm), microBTX (264.16mm) and Low-profile 's picoBTX (203.20mm) according to the width of the board, as well as future ExtendedBTX for servers. Moreover, the popular new buses and interfaces, such as PCIExpress and serial ATA, will also be well supported in the BTX architecture motherboard.

It is worth mentioning that the new BTX motherboard will optimize the heat dissipation system through pre-installed SRM (support and retention module), especially for CPU. In addition, the heat dissipation system is also called hot module in the terminology of BTX. In general, the module includes a radiator and an airflow channel. At present, there are two types of hot modules that have been developed, namely full-size and low-profile.

Thanks to the continuous application of new technology, the future BTX motherboard will completely cancel the traditional serial port, parallel port, PS/2 and other interfaces.
