TYAN DELIVERS NEW DUAL-CORE INTEL® XEON® PROCESSOR-BASED SOLUTIONS FOR SERVER MARKET

Tyan's S5380, S5370 and S5372 Deliver Unprecedented Solutions for a Growing IT Industry

FREMONT , CA , May 23 rd , 2006 ˇV Every fine-tuned server requires the best core components available in order to provide the fastest performance possible. The processors, the memory, and the motherboard platform itself must be top-notch in order to provide the speed and power needed to perform to the demands of ever-hungry high-end applications. To answer these requirements, Tyan has broken out several new server platforms to meet customer expectations on performance. For high-end performance servers which need expansive I/O and full-scale capabilities, there is the Tempest i5000PX (S5380), and for entry to mid-range servers, the Tempest i5000VF (S5370) and the Tempest i5000VS (S5372) are key solutions.

The S5380, S5370 and S5372 are all based on Dual-Core Intel ® Xeon ® processor 5000 series technology with exceptionally fast core speeds, high-ranking 64-bit technology, built-in virtualization and security, and brand new dual core capabilities. Starting with the Tempest i5000PX (S5380), features of this full-sized server platform include:

•  Support for two (2) Dual-Core Intel ® Xeon ® processor 5000 series processors, 64-bit, Intel® Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and much more

•  Uses the Intel® 5000P chipset with iASM and Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology features

•  Supports up to eight (8) DIMMS of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory

•  (2) Gigabit Ethernet ports for streamlined network communications

•  Expansion support with PCI Express slots, PCI-X slots, and BMC memory socket

•  includes one universal Riser slot for expansion in a rackmount application

•  Remote management features including optional IPMI 2.0 support, all in a 12ˇ¨ x 13ˇ¨ SSI EEB form factor

•  the large form factor lends itself to a full-breadth of features designed to meet or exceed customer specifications for server components

The Tempest i5000VF (S5370) offers its own set of features to differentiate from its bigger brother, features such as:

•  Support for two (2) Dual-Core Intel ® Xeon ® processor 5000 series processors, 64-bit, Intel ® Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and much more

•  Uses the Intel® 5000V chipset with iASM and I/O AT features

•  Supports up to four (4) DIMMS of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory

•  (2) Gigabit Ethernet ports for streamlined network communications

•  Expansion support with PCI Express slots, PCI-X slot, and PCI 32-bit slots

•  Remote management features including IPMI 2.0, all in a 12ˇ¨ x 10.5ˇ¨ SSI CEB form factor

•  CEB form factor provides for a denser population of servers and a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) by compatibility with lower-cost system components

The Tempest i5000VS (S5372) offers some of the same great features found in the S5370, and more:

•  Support for two (2) Intel Xeon 5000 Sequence Processors dual core support, 64-bit, Intel Virtualization Technology, built-in anti-virus technology, and much more

•  Uses the Intel 5000V chipset with iASM and I/O AT features

•  Supports up to six (6) DIMMS of Registered DDR2-667/533 ECC FBDIMM memory

•  (2) Gigabit Ethernet ports and (1) Fast Ethernet (10/100) port

•  Expansion support with PCI Express slots, PCI-X slot, and PCI 32-bit slots

•  Remote management features including IPMI 2.0, all in a 12ˇ¨ x 10.5ˇ¨ SSI CEB form factor

ˇ§Many recent advancements in server technology including dual core support and virtualization, built-in security features, and improved manufacturing processes all have lead to a higher level of integrated features available in a single solution,ˇ¨ stated Danny Hsu , VP of Sales and Marketing at Tyan Computer Corporation. ˇ§In introducing Tyan's new server platform solutions, the Tempest i5000PX (S5380), Tempest i5000VF (S5370) and Tempest i5000VS (S5372), customers will be able to realize higher performance and efficiency gains on their server applications than ever before, thanks to Intel's powerful new server technology line-up.ˇ¨

"The Dual-Core Intel ® Xeon ® processor 5000 and 5100 series provide Tyan with a powerful foundation for the Tempest i5000PX, i5000VF and i5000VS platform solutions" says Boyd Davis, General Manager Intel's Server Platforms Group Marketing. "Tyan's customers can integrate the Dual-Core Intel ® Xeon ® processor 5000 series processors with the new Tempest platforms to provide server solutions with leadership performance, advanced virtualization technology and proven reliability"

The Tempest i5000PX (S5380), Tempest i5000VF (S5370) and Tempest i5000VS (S5372) will both sample in mid Q2'06, and will reach mass production levels in late Q2'06.
