Default AMD has no plans to push BTX boards

WHEN WE attended a joint Via/AMD press conference last week, we asked the AMD rep whether the firm would be giving any support to the BTX form factor, pioneered by Intel.
His answer was that AMD had no plans to back BTX, and any intention to do so would depend on customers demanding it. This is AMD speak for no, we won't be promoting it at all.

Intel has dropped processor pricing quite a bit. Looking at T775 pricing, the sales promotion for the hot potatos and slower processor - Prescott, to make room on the "Wet dream come true".

If AMD could keep up the pace this time around, perhaps, the tide will change as such that Intel no longer holds the command line "When I say jump, you ask how high".
