Tyan unveils boards, servers for new Opterons
Tyan has released a host of new motherboards and rackmount servers to
complement AMD's latest Socket F and Socket AM2 Opterons with DDR2
support. The new lineup consists of a whopping 18 products and is split
evenly between motherboards and servers.
At least three of the boards use Nvidia's newly-released nForce Professional 3000-series chipsets.
n6650W implements the nForce Professional 3600 and 3050 combo,
giving it four PCI Express x16 slots (two with 16 lanes, two with eight
lanes) although it only includes six Serial ATA ports out of a possible
12. The Thunder
n3600B is also interesting; it uses the ATX form factor and includes
dual 1,207-pin sockets with four memory slots each, as well as dual PCI
Express graphics slots (in a 16/8 lane configuration) with SLI multi-GPU
support. Last, but not least, the Tomcat n3400B
looks like a SLI motherboard for Socket AM2. It supports
both desktop Athlon 64 chips and the new 1000-series Opterons.
