  Benefits and Applications

Tyan Tacoma is a quality, high performance system platform designed for Intel Pentium Pro microprocessors. This mainboard utilizes the Intel 440FX chipset and can support CPU speeds of 150 MHz through 200 MHz.

The Tacoma PCI Local Bus provides high performance capabilities that are ideal for a wide range of demanding applications such as: CAD, CAM, CAE, networking, multi-user environments, database management, desktop publishing, image processing and 3D animation.

This integrated system board achieves high reliability with numerous features and yet is small enough to be supported in an "ATX" form-factor. Some of the features included are: on-board dual channel PCI PIO and DMA IDE, on-board floppy controller, and on-board high speed I/O.

Flexibility and expandibility have been designed into the Tacoma. With I/O and drive controller support built on-board, the four PCI and four ISA (One ISA and one PCI as a shared slot) slots are free for numerous add-on expansion cards.
