Motherboard Short for New Low Profile Extended, NLX is a motherboard form factor originally developed by Intel and finalized in March 1997. The NLX motherboard was designed to replace the nonstandard LPX design and is 9" wide x 13.6" deep maximum to 8" x 10" deep minimum and included the below features.
Riser The New Low-profile Extended – or NLX – motherboard can be installed into a slimline computer chassis. It makes use of an ATX PSU plugged into a riser card, rather than into the motherboard. NLX boards make extensive use of riser cards, which are designed to provide additional expansion capabilities for motherboards.

Device NLX (New Low-Profile Extended) A form factor developed Intel in 1998 for low-end personal computer motherboards, to improve on an older and similar form factor. A line of a motherboard bus that a hardware device or expansion slot can use to signal the CPU that the device needs attention. Some lines have a higher priority for attention than
Design NLX case design. The NLX case design is based on mass-marketed, retail PCs, and is a replacement for the LPX form factor and case design. The NLX case is a slim-line, low-profile case, with a riser card arrangement for expansion cards. Since the NLX form factor is an actual standard, it should allow for greater interchangeability of components.
Standard NLX (New Low Profile eXtended) Form Factor The need for a modern, small motherboard standard led to the development of the new NLX form factor. In many ways, NLX is similar to LPX. Also like ATX, the NLX standard was developed by Intel Corporation in 1998.

Extended) NLX (New Low-profile Extended) Form Factor. NLX motherboard installment. Allows the motherboard to slide in or out of the case easily. What was NLX replaced by? microATX and Mini-ITX. BTX (Balanced Technology Extended) Form Factor. Designed as a replacement for the ATX form factor. However, it did not gain widespread adoption.
The NLX form factor uses a riser board ( backplane ), which the motherboard plugs into instead of being on the motherboard. This allowed the motherboard to be removed from the computer without having to remove all expansion cards and supported motherboards that can be removed without using tools. Support for USB. Support for DIMM.
NLX is a true standard, unlike LPX, making interchangeability of components easier than it was for the older form factor. IBM, Gateway, and NEC produced a fair number of NLX computers in the late 1990s, primarily for Socket 370 (Pentium II-III and Celeron), but NLX never enjoyed the widespread acceptance that LPX had.
The NLX board uses a riser card to plug the expansion slots in parallel to the motherboard instead of the traditional perpendicular plugging setup. These boards are typically found in slimline computer cases. Here is a chart comparing different sizes and form factors of motherboards in computers.
Micro ATX motherboard form factor. Introduced in the late 1990s, the MicroATX is basically a smaller version of Intel’s ATX specification, intended for compact, low-cost consumer systems with limited expansion potential. The maximum size of the board is 9.6in square, and its designed to fit into either a standard ATX case or one...
