  • Point for point difference between AT & ATX functions?

    Could someone tell me the actual specific functions that an ATX board has that a AT board does not?

    More features more or less. AT power is on or off. With ATX power is on a little bit, which improves start up times, plus with the bios you can set it to automatically start up after a power outage (turning it off). Basically ATX has a digital controller for power, allowing more stuff to happen...

      ATX also has 3.3 volts.

            In short without spending a week in the labs, no.

            Sorry

              I'm thinking yeah, but its quite complicated..
              Also, in what way did you wish to them turn the computer off??
              Yeah, so, I got blocked, I like the ability to be able to log in.. I will reduce my posting over the next week or so, as long as my old account gets reactivated... Okay... :)
