  • PenStar Systems gives TYAN Trinity KT (S2390) 90%!  "Build Quality of the board is excellent.  TYAN has concentrated on good quality boards with excellent stability.  It seems that they have hit their mark again when it comes to this board."
  • Electic Tech reviews Tiger 133.  "The stability of the revision F board has been extremely trustworthy.  Crashes are virtually non-existant.  The Tiger 133 will deliver what you want, and it will not skimp on performance."  88%
  • Target PC reviews TYAN's Trinity KT.  "TYAN's Trinity KT motherboard is a great performer. Its also without doubts a solid choice for anyone planning to build an AMD machine based on the Duron or Athlon (Thunderbird) processor...If you are the non-overclocking type of person and are looking for a solid and rock stable solution for your new Duron or Athlon "Thunderbird" processor, then the Trinity KT would be something to consider."
  • GamePC reviews TYAN's Trinity KT.  "The Trinity KT is purely a KT-133 mainboard.  The TYAN is certainly a capable and solid solution for your socket A needs… the Trinity KT is a fine option"

  • The TYAN Tiger 133 got a "High-Tech Editors Choice" in 10/2000 issue of German's PC-Direkt.

  • "Without any doubt, the TYAN Trinity KT is a very good motherboard. In the classic TYAN's style, stability has been privileged to "tweakability". This isn't necessary a defect, since stability is an important parameter that could become fundamental in some situations, although players may favour the possibility to obtain one or two fps more. But, as we put in evidence in the review, the "regular" performances are great and perhaps new BIOS upgrades could add some other options to tweak the system and the processor options."

  • Trinity KT reviewed by Geek Extreme. "It seems to me this board is well suited for anyone who wants stability. Running Windows Millennium for two weeks straight, I did not encounter one crash. Even under heavy loads, there were no problems. At any given time, this computer was running RC5, a Tribes Server, and often running other programs as well. (We even sat and watched a VCD on it one night with the Tribes Server and RC5 both running.) The final word: This board is stable as a 2 ton rock."
