FREMONT, CA, December 19th, 2005
- A number of applications aimed at the 1U server space do not require more than one processor: file serving, small to medium-scale storage, and firewall protection are just some examples. To help meet demands for this market, Tyan is introducing the
Tomcat i7230B (S5161), a 1U-optimized rackmount-ready server board with dual-core Intel® Pentium® 4 support, virtualization support, and rich features.

  • 1U-optimized layout for best airflow and thermal management in rackmount environment
  • Support for Intel Pentium 4 LGA775 processors with Hyper-Threading, and Pentium D processors (dual-core support)
  • Supports up to 8GB of DDR2-533/667 unbuffered memory with ECC
  • Two Gigabit Ethernet and one 10/100 LAN ports – excellent flexibility for any network

  • Serial ATA-2 with RAID levels supported (0, 1)
  • Built-in 16MB XGI Volari™ Z7 video controller with external video port
