Tyan Launches Complete Set of Server Boards to
Support Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processors

FREMONT, CA, October 10th, 2005
- With the advent of multi-core technology, much of the market focus has been on increasing performance while saving costs on board real estate. However, many current server board products are not capable of support this incredible processor architecture, until now. Tyan is proud to announce the first transitional line of server board products designed to take advantage of the newly-launched Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor.

Steeped in performance and power, Tyan's award-winning server product line has evolved to handle the next level of dual-core processing power, delivering the latest in server technology to meet the most demanding applications available today.  New powerhouse products for the server market space which support the Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor include the following:

  • Thunder i7520D (S5360-D, 2-socket tower/pedestal server board)
  • Thunder i7520RD (S5360-D-1U, 2-socket rackmount server board for 1U)
  • Tiger i7320D (S5350-D, 2-socket compact server board for tower/pedestal)
  • Tiger i7320RD (S5350-D-1U, 2-socket compact server board for 1U)

"With the introduction of the Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor architecture, Intel has definitively offered a solution to current high-power applications with a minimum of transitional effort," said Danny Hsu, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Tyan. "Tyan's launch of four separate Intel Paxville-ready platforms represents a strong solution to customer demands for higher processor and system performance in the server space, and the familiarity of the design will help customers easily attain dual-core power using configurations and many components already found in current IT builds."

The Thunder i7520D (S5360-D), Thunder i7520RD (S5360-D-1U), Tiger i7320D (S5350-D) and Tiger i7320RD (S5350-D-1U) will all sample in mid Q4'05 and reach mass availability by end of Q4'05.
