    Yepp, Intel will have to make something new in the memory direction to make it work. It's sadly because the memories are to far away from the north bridge it doesn't work.

    Just found a big progress. Was just looking at Silverstones site, and they are already having DTX as a supported mobo size in their mini HTPC Milo series.

    Ahh. The progress is they mention it. The first (atleast) I found.
    Just don't understand why only that one of their series is mentioned to support it. Thay make so many other series...

    Yoink , Another not C2duo ill admit.

    They can be had but youre always going to pay more because;

    Its a smaller market, economies of scale have less effect.

    Theyre industrial boards, built to a higher spec (better caps etc)

    Making things compact costs, an ultra portable costs twice as much as a similarly specd mainstream laptop.

    Hopefully DTX will start to address the first two points and the third one is just the price you pay for wanting a small, fast computer.

    Edit: stumbled across this today.
