  • CT reviews TYAN Tiger MP (S2460) .  "The Tiger MP has the same working speed as the Thunder K7, and can easily compete with the extremely expensive workstations based on the P4 Xeon, except for some very selected applications.  The Athlon CPUs are faster in a Linux environment compared to P4 CPUs.  The AMD team got the lead in most benchmarks and has the best price/performance result, so it's unbeatable."  [translated text] View review / benchmark
