Two reference PC form factors that allow OEMs to develop systems more rapidly were announced by Intel at its Developer's Forum in San Francisco.
Dubbed Tide Water and Big Water, they are intended to help systems builders make smaller, low power PCs without losing out on speed.
Tide Water will include a Micro ATX form-factor-type board, said Louis Burns, vice president and co-general manager for the Desktop Platforms Group at Intel, in his keynote speech today [Thursday].
It will ship this April.
The Big Water platform uses the company's 3GIO I/O technology and is expected to make an appearance by 2003.
Both designs set out parts of the PC such as the motherboard, heat sink, fans and other components.
