TYAN Press Release


Supports the 50-Watt Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processors

Fremont, CA, 19 Mar 2007 - Tyan Computer Corporation announced today the immediate availability of the TyanPSC T-600 series Personal Supercomputer featuring new low-power 50-watt quad-core server processors from Intel. The TyanPSC T-650 QX Personal Supercomputer is a fully integrated cluster designed to be deployed in the office environment.   The TyanPSC personal supercomputer is a 5-node cluster that is an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use, turnkey system that delivers tremendous computation capability in your office or any other environment, while only requiring power from a standard wall outlet.

With a maximum power draw of 15A the TyanPSC can be deployed in many non-traditional computation environments:  starting with the office or home and extending to the ship, plane or remote outpost. With 40 processing cores available for high-performance computing there is a lot of compute power in a compact system.  The system utilizes the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor L5320.  The new 50-watt quad-core processor operates at 1.86 GHz and features a unique 8 megabytes (MB) of on die cache for faster memory data communication and interfaces with a dedicated 1066 MHz front side bus.  The TyanPSC allows individuals and workgroups access to computational power formerly only found in data centers.

Tyan has taken a leadership position in the personal supercomputing space, delivering TyanPSC personal supercomputers for over a year.  With options to preload Microsoft Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003 or a Linux operating system the TyanPSC T-600 series is delivered as a pre-tested cluster configuration and ready to use.  ISV partnerships with ANSYS/Fluent, LSTC, Wolfram Research and others augment the TyanPSC robust turnkey capabilities.

“Tyan Computer has designed an innovative server cluster solution that meets the needs of a wide range of workgroup cluster applications," said Kirk Skaugen, vice president of Intel's Digital Enterprise Group and general manager of the Server Platform Group. "Utilizing the 50-watt quad-core Intel Xeon processors, server customers can expect supercomputer-class capacity in an office-friendly system.”

"We're leaving the performance compromise of personal supercomputing behind us by delivering a system into office environments that pumps out nearly one quarter of a Teraflop without the mess and difficulty of the back room data center model," said Eric Chang, General Manager, High Performance Computing Product Group, Tyan Computer Corporation. "Our T-600 series personal supercomputers represent a tremendous leap for our customers who require performance-on-demand to reach their efficiency goals and get results. With the TyanPSC T-600 series, you just open the box, roll it into your office and plug it in.  That's what we provide our customers – hands on supercomputing.

With the TyanPSC Personal supercomputer, yesterday’s Top 500 supercomputer can now be at your deskside.
