The MTX series are ATX form-factor boards. MTX have 3 PCI slots and
the MTX+ have 7 PCI slots and 1 ISA slot. My MTX is model variant
604-010A which has dual 300MHz MPC604e CPUs. Other variations had
single MPC603 or MPC604 CPUs.
So, it's otherwise like an MVME4600--just without the Universe chip or
VME connectors and it mounts in an ATX-PC case (except the rear panel,
which isn't laid out like any PC cover panels).
