Fremont, CA, December 12, 2001 – Tyan® Computer Corporation today announced that they have initiated shipments of their next-generation dual-processor DDR-based platform for the AMD AthlonTM MP processor. The new Tiger MPX system board utilizes the new AMD-760™ MPX chipset to provide breakthrough performance for I/O-intensive applications.

Tyan, a leading designer and manufacturer of Internet infrastructure products and system board solutions, is one of a handful of system board suppliers utilizing the new AMD-760 MPX chipset. Tyan's existing product line also includes platforms based on the AMD-760 MP chipset. The award-winning Thunder K7 and Tiger MP system boards were the world's first platforms to support the AMD Athlon MP processor.

The Tiger MPX features a variety of expansion slots including AGP, 32-bit PCI, and high-performance 66MHz 64-bit PCI. It also supports up to 4GB of high-speed Double Data Rate (DDR) memory, and features an optional integrated 3Com® 10/100BaseT LAN port for cost-effective network connectivity.

"Building on our long-term partnership with AMD, Tyan has once again produced an exciting new AMD processor-based platform for the multiprocessor market. Designed for the AMD Athlon MP processor and around the AMD-760 MPX chipset, the Tiger MPX is engineered to provide blistering computational and I/O performance for tomorrow's leading-edge servers, workstations and high-powered desktop PCs," stated Danny Hsu, Director of Marketing at Tyan.
