Did anybody else catch AMD referring to mini-ITX as "MICRO ITX" at 12:45 in their platform video? I know many people make this mistake, but you'd think a major component manufacturer would know better than to flub a major form factor.

Yep, I caught that as well. When I saw the first few slides with ATX and Micro-ATX I thought "I doubt they'll even mention Mini-ITX..."

Then the next slide popped up with "Micro-ITX", and I just thought to myself "well, getting it incorrect is even worse than forgetting about it..."

Note that they say Micro ATX, not ITX. The board looks a bit bigger than mini itx. Maybe they are thinking about a small form factor that can be used with threadripper.

No, it says "Micro ITX" right after "Micro ATX". It was meant to be a super basic demonstration that their cards can fit into any form factor (ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX), unlike the new Nvidia cards that are a lot larger than standard. They just messed up.
