Benefits and Applications
Tyan Thunder 100 is a quality, high performance workstation class single/dual processor system platform based on the powerful Intel Pentium II / III microprocessors. This mainboard is designed around the latest
and fastest Intel 440BX AGPset. Please refer to the Motherboard CPU Compatibility Chart for more specs.
The Thunder 100 supports SPD SDRAM memory and ECC SDRAM. The board's PCI Local Bus and new 32-bit AGP bus provides high performance capabilities that are ideal for a wide range of demanding
applications such as: CAD, CAM, CAE, real-time 3D, and simulations.
This integrated system board achieves the highest reliability and is based on an extended double row ATX
form factor. Some of the features included are: on-board dual channel PCI IDE, on-board floppy controller, on-board high speed I/O, Universal Serial Bus, on-board PS/2 mouse connector, System Mangement, and
dual channel UltraWide SCSI port.
Flexibility and expandibility have been designed into the Thunder 100. With I/O and drive controller
support built on-board, the Thunder 100 allows many upgrade paths not found on other boards.. With four 168-pin DIMM sockets, the Thunder 100 can provide a very flexible memory configuration of up to 1GB
SPD SDRAM or SDRAM+ECC in addition to the new 100 MHz SDRAMs.
