Are these demo boards for the smaller BTX form factors?

They sure don't seem to allow for much in the way of expansion. Hopefully the production boards will have a bit more in the way of PCI-* slots and drive ports.

The picture angle is a little steep on the larger board, so I'm not sure if a long video card could get in the way of the one drive port, nor if a two-slot card would either get obstructed by the power cable or cover over half or of the PCI-Express slots.

Maybe it's just that the boards are not finalized, but it looks like there is a bit more wasted space and oddball placement on the boards thanks to everything being shifted around to comphensate for the CPU's thermal shortcomings.

They are "PicoBTX" and "MicroBTX", all designed as small form factor MBs.
