Intel Developer Forum At a technology briefing at the Intel Developer Forum today, the company showed its FlexATX motherboard and said it was 30 per cent smaller than the MicroATX design. The motherboard is intended to fit into a variety of different form factors, said Steve Whalley, head of desktop product group initiatives in the US. Intel will show some prototypes of those designs during a keynote speech tomorrow morning. They are likely to include systems which fit into flat screen panels as well as other machines bearing more than a passing resemblence to the Apple iMac. The motherboard The Register saw included the 810 "Whitney" chipset, while the design also included a 370-pin socket for the Pentium III. Whalley said it was a working board and Intel was at rev 0.9 for the design. It had sockets for PC100 memory and USB and modem ports. At the last Intel Developer Forum, the company's CEO, Craig Barrett, demonstrated two designs known as the Yaquina and the Toaster, but senior Intel VP Pat Gelsinger is expected to demo a whole raft of systems using FlexATX. In an interview, Gelsinger conceded that such systems did not lend themselves to Slot One. But he denied that Slot One was yet dead. ®
