According to Hexus, Intel would have said during a meeting with mainboard and chassis manufacturers that it would not launch new BTX motherboards on the retails market in 2007.

If it important to point out that BTX was never a major success and that it has been restricted to important manufacturers such as Dell or HP. Also, since Intel's desktop platforms cooling requirements have dropped with the release of the Core 2 Duo, the necessity of the BTX is even less obvious.
