Is the new BTX standard only for intel mobo's or will AMD use it as well?

Does anyone know when it will start shipping?

AMD may use it, but so far AMD haven't brought out any chips that run as hot as prescott to make it seem like a good idea.

Intel may start the push with PCI-E later next month. But I am starting to become doubtful of this with the changes that have happened recently.

I think the new chipsets from Intel are supposed to be introduced right at the end of June. I concur w/Viral, it sounds like AMD is in no hurry to rush into this. I have a feeling the transition to BTX is not going to happen overnight. :)
