IDF Intel today announced two new small PC form factors, codenamed Tidewater and Big Water, for OEMs. These are intended to help system builders produce small footprint PCs without any sacrifice in performance.

Tidewater incorporates a Micro ATX board and is out in April and is a nine liter box - at least that's what we think Louis Burns, Intel's desktop platform veep, said in his IDF keynote today.

Big Water comes out in 2003 - it's a six liter box and it incorporates 3GIO interconnect technology. ®
