Gateway gets started on BTX, bandwagon to follow

Gateway BTXThe BTX, or Balanced Technology Extended, system architecture spec has been around awhile now, but it's been pretty quiet. Usually these things take a big name or two to get started, so Gateway thought they'd kick it off this September. The chassis on one of their their up-and-coming desktop series will feature the BTX architecture, which allows for extremely efficient cooling by getting all their ducks in a line so to speak, blowing air over horizontally aligned memory chips and upturned expansion boards, then over the chipset and CPU. So it's kind of a win-win situation for both you and Moore's Law. If none of this means anything to you, that's okay, you'll just notice that your PC will be a little bit cooler and quieter.
