ATX (Advanced Technology Extended) motherboards were introduced in 1995. BTX (Balanced Technology Extended) motherboards, which require a different case design, were launched almost a decade later, in 2004.
As the intended successor to ATX motherboards. BTX models were introduced for the purpose of better addressing the evolving heat issues that computers face. Intel's goal was to create a motherboard that could increase cooling by relocating the location of components on the board. Despite the BTX's ability to provide better cooling, ATX motherboards are still the computing standard today.
BTX motherboards do not have any related designs. However, the ATX form factor has several variations, including Extended ATX (EATX) and reduced-size boards known as MicroATX, FlexATX, and Mini ATX.
